Free-spirited artist Stormy Jones-Smythe was raised by two talented Wizard fathers but never showed the slightest hint of magical abilities. Which is why she’s totally surprised when three famous fairy godmothers show up at her door to tell her she’s one of them.

Surprised, and none too happy. The godmothers are fugitives, framed for treason, and the last thing the magical Council wants is another fairy godmother going rogue. Hence Stormy’s new full-time Guard, Hunter Merrick.

Stormy quickly realizes she’s not going to escape Hunter’s watch…and before long, she’s not sure she wants to. But her freedom depends on her ability to expose the plot against the godmothers, and that means getting control of her magic. Despite the growing chemistry between them, Hunter is fiercely loyal to the Council—and duty-bound to keep Stormy from doing either of those things.

But he didn’t count on Stormy’s irrepressible exuberance and passion for life. Before long, even Hunter isn’t sure which side he’s on, and he can’t contain Stormy either way.


Review: I found this story magically romantic. With each page I was so riveted that I didn’t want to put it down. Even as I approached the end of the story I found I wanted to find out more about the Arcani along with their offspring.

Stormy, a very strong-willed woman that stands up for what she believes in no matter what the cost; finds herself the last chosen by magic to become one of the new godmothers. An artist (weaving) was raised by her two wizard dads, was raised as a groundling (human) because she had no magic; that is until now. As she turns twenty seven she finds that magic has chosen her to become the third godmother. As she receives her magic she finds she has trouble controlling it which only makes her more endearing to the reader.

Ms. Stevens shows Stormy as a very caring, loving and strong character.

When Stormy meets the other two godmothers there is an instant bond of friendship as if they had been friends forever. This story brings unlikely people together to fight to keep the Arcani safe and protected. Friendships old and new seem as natural as the new fairy godmothers complement each other even if they don’t know each other that well yet. Each is very strong alone but even more so when they are together. As they gather strength from each other to defeat the enemies.

With the other Godmothers wanted for treason and in hiding the Arcani Counsel, takes Stormy into their protective custody placing their guards on her. Hunter, strong, loyal and handsome falls for Stormy. Things aren’t smooth in this hot and stormy (no pun intended) relationship.

Ms. Stevens weaves a magical tale that is full of emotions, making you fall in love with all of the characters as they draw you in with their love for life and wanting to do what is right.

Ms. Stevens has a hit on her hands as I found myself laughing, crying and falling in love. I am going to have to read the first two books in the series and this one again to find how it all started. I hope that there are more of the godmothers in future books and maybe one where Tank finds his true love….
