I loved that the heroine was not a naive twenty year old and that Maddie is a parent. Finding out that her new home has a portal to another world, and that she’s a witch, is enough for any woman to deal with after a divorce. This story certainly had many twists in its tale, and was entertaining. It made me laugh that Maddie had named Morgan, the man whose bedroom the portal opens into; Mr Chiselled Chest, as her arrival through the portal kept coincidently interrupting him getting dressed. There were some nice family dynamics in this story, and excellent world building. I liked this book and found it to be very enjoyable.
Putting her divorce in her rearview and her kids in the minivan, Maddie Pearce heads home to Salem, Mass., in search of a new life. That new life isn’t supposed to include finding a portal to the past hidden in the closet of her aunt’s house—a past that has magic, sorcerers and a possible way to heal her special needs son. And she certainly isn’t expecting the brooding, handsome lord whose bedroom lies on the other side of the portal…and who seems determined to keep Maddie in her own world.
The last thing Morgan of Pencastle wants to see is another witch oblivious to her powers stepping through the portal wall. Then the beautiful, sexy Maddie steps into his world. And keeps coming back.
Maddie needs Morgan’s help, and together they try to build a bridge between the worlds. If only fate isn’t so determined to keep them worlds apart…
Blush sensuality level: This is a sensual romance (may have explicit love scenes, but not erotic in frequency or type).
