Cordelia has sworn she’ll abstain from looking into Michael’s future—particularly when the image in the gilded smoke of her divination mirror shows him half naked. Yet she can’t resist watching the sexy rascal slowly running his hand down his ribs, over his abdomen, flicking open the button on his jeans with a little flourish like a magician performing a trick.

Respectable wise woman Cordelia restrains her secret water nymph sensuality with the Celtic symbols painted on her skin. But Michael’s powerful fairy glamour leaves her breathless, off balance, struggling for control. When Gwyn ap Nudd, the Welsh King of the Underworld, steals away Michael’s infant nephew, Cordelia must work with him to save the child. But how can she trust her instincts with Michael tempting her to explore the hidden elemental depths of her nature and insisting that she believe in the power of…THE PHOENIX CHARM.

Helen Scott Taylor takes us on a whimsical journey to a hidden realm filled with fantastical beings. A journey where our hero and heroine Michael and Cordelia fight a battle against evil to save an innocent and discover a love that may conquer all.

In The Phoenix Charm, Ms. Taylor shows off her eloquent storytelling abilities by inviting her readers along on this magical trip. Her dialogue is flowing, flawless and informative as she tells of her mystical characters and their elusive domains hidden in plain sight of the mortal realm. Beings who are unbelievable and yet she makes us believe, some frightening some funny some kind and some evil, but all wonderful. Her hero and heroine Michael and Cordelia are a remarkable pair and yet she fully acquaints us with not only them but all of her well developed characters by giving them each a story to tell. Her plot is fancifully unique and sometimes terrifying. The love scenes are spicy yet sensual and artfully described.

So if you love paranormal adventures with mystical magical creatures and if you love epic battles fought for good over evil and if you love your romance on the sizzle burner then this read has all those bells and whistles. And yet you ask, ah but what is the Phoenix Charm. Well, my friends let me just say that the discovery is well worth the trip.

The Phoenix Charm is Helen Scott Taylor's second in The Love Knot Fairy series.
