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?
Peg Thompson has no room in her life for a man in her life. She is busy with four children, and she has a suspicion her family is cursed and dares not fall in love again. So she tries to distance herself from Duncan, who has recently surfaced in her life. Duncan MacKeage comes from a family of magic, however he doesn’t possess any. Duncan is busy building new roads since the change in Spellbound Falls. But then he comes across Peg and her four children who create chaos. However he finds himself charmed by this family, that is led by a woman of incredible beauty and inner strength. She is feisty and strong and protects her children like a mama bear, but he knows there is a inner passion in her just waiting to burst free, and he knows he is up to the challenge of helping her let go of some of her inhibitions. He also wants to show her the power of true love and the magic of his family can overcome any curses and prove to Peg how true his feelings are for her.
Duncan comes from a family that despite their supernatural abilities, also is very old fashioned. When he first meets Peg, he is practically attacked by her four children and herself. To say he is charmed is a understatement. He finds himself intrigued by Peg and her heathens. Duncan however doesn’t know if he truly is the man for her, despite what Mac tells him. But when he finds that he truly wants to keep Peg in his life, he is determined to prove to her his love for her….no matter any protests she may make, he is a Mackeage after all.
Peg, lost the love of her life due to a horrible accident, that she felt was not worth his life. Now she is alone and raising her four children all on her own. She believes that she is cursed, along with all the female members in her family, of never being able to hold onto the men that they love. So now she is determined to build her dream home, raise her four children, and live a life alone if necessary. But when Duncan comes storming into her life, he changes everything she has planned. She also knows he is the only one that can truly protect her from the danger that threatens herself and her children.
Charmed By His Love is the second in the series, and after just loving the first one I had a lot of expectations for this one. Even though I really enjoyed it, I didn’t exactly fall in love with everything that happens. It took a bit of time to get fully into it, but once I did, it was almost near impossible to put down. I found myself charmed by this story, and even though the whole “Curse” thing really didn’t fly with me, I found the rest of the story enchanting. I really loved Duncan, who is a ‘ he man’, but I also loved the way he was around Peg. She is what you would call feisty and stubborn, but Duncan handles her really well. I found this to be such a fun read, with witty humor, and a sweet romance that will charm any reader. A Delight to read!!! Looking forward to reading more from this series…..
