Oliver Pendragon’s days as the Magician of Wall Street are legendary. When he finds a way to get everything he’s ever wanted—including Abby Daltry—of course he can’t refuse, even though there will be hell to pay if ever Abby found out. But when he discovers his old business partner is out for Abby’s blood, Oliver will do anything to protect her…and win her heart.

New Age bookstore owner Abby is perfectly happy with her life the way it is—the independence, the quirky clientele, and even the occasional tarot card reading—are all part of the charm. But when the cards reveal Oliver is back and bringing danger along with him, she refuses to heed the warning for another chance with the only man she’d ever loved.

As shots fly, the Magician will have to perform his best trick ever if he hopes to keep Abby safe and by his side forever.

 

Review: I found this to be a well written story complete with humor, romantic suspense, a little action and even a paranormal twist.  Ms. Hall combined well written characters that were interesting and charming in their own way giving them a bit of depth.

Abby Daltry leaves New York running to Cali to get away from her ex, Oliver Pendragon.  She now runs this quirky little new age bookstore with some unique customers.  She even gets the occasional Tarot Card reading.  When the ‘Magician’ card is revealed she chooses to ignore it.  Oliver once again enters her life, bringing with him danger.  All Abby wants is one more chance at her forever love with the only man she has ever loved.

Oliver has a magical way of making things work for him and go his way.  When he encounters a way to get everything he ever wanted he realizes he wants Abby.  But he can’t let her find out as there will be hell to pay.

I must admit that although this was a fun story I did find that is started off fast paced, slowed down a bit only to pick back up again to the end.  If you like second chance at love story this is right up your alley.  With likable characters, steamy romance, the parts I found lacking still helped move the story along making it worthwhile to finish the story.
