As I spent some time after Christmas re-reading the Harry Potter series, I am just getting back to posting some book reviews!
Leona Bushman is one of my favorite indie authors and Highland Magic is Leona at her best. This books takes you back to historical Scotland, setting a rich backdrop for magic and romance to take place. You get thrown right into the action and it keeps going until the very end in this fantasy novella. A feisty heroine and a handsome and strong hero show us just how magical love can be in this start of what I hope is a very long series. I certainly can't wait for the second book as there are answers that I am waiting for. I give this 5/5 stars and am eagerly awaiting the sequel.
An evil darkness forces Mykel Campbell to reveal his magical powers.
Mykel leaves his beloved Highlands in search of a wife. He has two requirements: loyalty and comeliness. Lyall has plenty of both and more. She possesses a spirit of adventure he found appealing. His attraction to her could nae be denied. Verily, his good fortune is complete. Until the darkness strikes Lyall's village. An evil which takes magic to defeat.
Lyall resolves never to marry. She could nae imagine finding anyone who would accept her magical abilities, much less her strong skills for reading and numbers. Then Mykel Campbell visits their village, and her heart is no longer hers, her body like a foreign land. He came in search of a wife. Could she dare hope?
Then an evil shadow full of creatures of her nightmares encompasses the land, and her family is in peril. Mykel swears his sword and magic to protecting them. Would the two of them survive to have the love of a lifetime? Or would evil triumph?
