New York Times bestselling author Janet Chapman takes you back to the magical town of Spellbound Falls, where Duncan MacKeage is about to uncover great love with hidden dangers…
All Duncan MacKeage wants is to keep his crew building roads and bridges up the mountain to the fancy resort overlooking Spellbound Falls’ new inland sea. He doesn’t want anything to do with his own family magic or with the beautiful widow, Peg Thompson, and her tribe of little heathens. But when Duncan is tasked with keeping an eye on the widow Thompson, trouble starts.
Because of a family curse, Peg fears that giving in to her desires will mean killing off another lover. But Duncan—the strong, handsome man buying her gravel—is unbelievably tempting and determined to take care of her. Torn between her head and her heart, will Peg find the strength to break free of her black-widow curse? Or will pursuing their attraction put these lovers in harm’s way?
In this heartwarming sequel to Spellbound Falls, beautiful Peg Thompson, a young widow and mother of four mischievous children, is finding it increasingly difficult to withstand the attentions of Duncan MacKeage, a handsome, strong, and friendly newcomer to Spellbound Falls. Working daily on Peg's property, which became prime oceanfront land after a miraculous earthquake, Duncan is intrigued by her strong will and loving heart, and is surprised to be rebuffed. When he learns that she believes she was the cause of her husband's death and is fated to be a curse to any future husband, the charmed time-traveler knows he must prove to Peg that his strength is greater than her fears, which means getting her to join him on a critical magical mission that will test both their resolve and their love. Despite a few too many clich s, readers will enjoy the enchanting town and characters.
