Susan has some amazing fantasies about Dr. Brad Conway. Unfortunately, when she's anywhere near the handsome surgeon, she's a tongue-tied catastrophe.
Along comes Brad's friend Alicia, a horse trainer with a talent for magic and matchmaking. Trapped at Alicia's home during an ice storm, Susan is thrilled to be on the receiving end of some fascinating, sensual advances from Brad. When she keeps encountering magical occurrences like a wolf-whistling cabinet, spoons stirring by themselves and a cat with an unerring ability to appear and disappear, not to mention change its own collar, she must decide if she believes in magic.
But believing has a downside, because now she has a new problem to consider. Is Brad's passion for her real or is it part of a spell?
Susan thinks she’s losing her mind. She’s seeing things, hearing things, and has this feeling that something unexplained is happening all around her. She doesn’t believe in magic or witches, but can’t quite put her finger on the ‘magical’ things and people that are popping into her life.
The shy and timid Susan is an amazing character that we all can relate to. Her self-esteem is a bit lacking and she doesn’t see herself as the amazing person that she is. She works too hard and would do anything for her family, especially her niece. Despite all the unexplainable things that start happening, her fantasy seems to be coming to life; Brad. Who wouldn’t fall for him? He’s gorgeous, smart, and attentive and on top of it all, loves animals.
Ms. Paine put together a delightful story that had me giggling and entranced from the first page. The story is filled with magic and love, with a bit of comedy thrown in for good measure. This story is a must for anyone who believes in fairy godmothers and happily ever afters.
