This was a super sweet romance. I hadn’t read any of the other books in the series as of yet but this one certainly sparked my interest. Mercy’s (love the name) sister books her into the Deerbourne Inn for what should be an extended stay. However, when she arrives she finds out she’s only books for two weeks. Mercy needs more time so the owner gets her a long-term solution.
That solution happens to be on the same land that her sister told her was suppose to be mystical. When she is caught on the land by Sil, she has to admit to being an elemental witch. Sil never thought he would find the woman who would stir his soul. When they are faced with righting a wrong from the past Mercy is left to decide if she will stay or not.
As I said this was such a sweet read. I would love to head to Deerbourne Inn myself for a week long visit. All the witches can come along too! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series and more from author Tena Stetler.
It was a beautiful summer evening lit by a full moon. What harm could come from simply popping over to Mystic Maples, digging my toes into the earth and see if there is any truth to the rumors? She shrugged. Sis wouldn’t have told me about it, if she hadn’t thought it worth investigating. Right?
She toed off her shoes, pulled off her socks and straightened. With a snap of her fingers she left the room without a sound and landed smack dab at the edge of the maple trees. Glancing around, she could see the house in the distance and the outline of the sign. “Good, I’m in the right place.” She wandered farther in among the trees, the dirt beneath her feet was cool. Wiggling her toes deeper into the earth, she felt the warmth of the day and something else—a connection.
Several trees had a slight glow to them, then it was gone. Am I imagining…She raised her arms out from her sides and turned her face to the starlit sky letting the magic surge through her. It had been almost a year since magic of any kind called to her. It felt so good, she was lost in the moment.
Suddenly a male voice broke through her revelry. “What are you doing here?”
Her heart thundered in her chest. She hadn’t heard a sound. Yet, there he was standing not three feet from her, hands on hips, and glaring at her.
