I enjoyed this story. I loved the sarcastic banter between the Ripley and Allister. While Ripley was trying to keep her indifference to him, he was gently wheeling her in with his awkward charm and intelengence. Of course Nell, and Mia slyly help Ripley in the romance department. This is not say that everything was good and cozy from the start. There is a dark presense that wants Nell to suffer, and the only way to stop that is to have the three of them come together. This is the type of book you curl up in a blanket with while drinking a hot drink. Happy reading my friends.
Ripley Todd just wants to live a quiet, peaceful kind of life. Her job as a sheriff’s deputy keeps her busy and happy, and she has no trouble finding men when she wants them – which, lately, isn’t all that often. She’s perfectly content, except for one thing: she has special powers that both frighten and confuse her, and though she tries hard to hide them, she can’t get them under control. Distraction soon arrives in the handsome form of Mac Allister Booke – a researcher who’s come to investigate the rumours of witchcraft that haunt Three Sisters Island. Right from the start, he knows there’s something extraordinary about Ripley Todd. It’s not just her blazing green eyes and her sultry smile. There’s something else. Something he can detect, but she’ll never admit. Fascinated by her struggle with her amazing abilities, he becomes determined to help her accept who she is – and find the courage to open her heart. But before Ripley and Mac can dream of what lies in the future, they must confront the pain of the past. For the island shelters centuries of secrets – and a legacy of danger that plagues them still.
