Be careful what you "witch" for!
Wrangling at her pony farm on weekends, Elinor Talbot is strong and smart but still struggles to make ends meet for her family. Divorced for years, she isn’t looking for romance. However, love finds a way when her mischievous kids summon a replacement dad with the Daddy Spell. With her indomitable spirit as a guide, Elinor challenges wickedly handsome, smooth-talking horseshoer Sean Killian to the true test of love.
At almost 40, Sean comes with a painful history, but he knows there’s no future in living in that past. He’s ready for a family of his own, and he thinks he’s finally found the right woman. Honest and hardworking, he calls things as he sees them, putting him and Elinor at loggerheads. Will the magic between them heal their wounded hearts, or is it all an illusion brought about by The Daddy Spell?
Wow, what can I say? The kids in this story made me fall in love with the theory of how magick was going to solve two problems in their family—dead beat dad and a new dad that would love them and their mother. So does magick really work or is it just fate, two people looking for love?
Jack and Lynn are precious kids with one sole purpose in their adventure is finding a perfect dad. Lynn is your typical older teenage sister that torments her younger brother. I found myself laughing quite a few times at how Jack was able to stand up for himself and not dwell on being picked on. Jack is a very intelligent kid that knows what he wants and will do anything possible to get it. He is so smart that he does a couple of mischievous activities behind his mom's back, but somehow he is able to get what he wants. They are two great characters in the book and they make this book so much fun to read.
Being a single mom with a pony farm to run along with being a substitute teacher, it is hard to be everywhere at one time. Elinor does her best to take care of her children but soon will find out that they need to be children and they should not be acting as adults. She has lived a rough life and now is the time she needs to start acting as a parent and stop depending so much on her children. This wonderful cowboy comes into their lives and he is so darn irresistible that he decides that he'll have this woman begging for more. Sean is extremely handsome and has lived his own troubled life as a child and also as an adult. I believe that is why he is trying so hard with Elinor and her kids to form a true family, something that lacked in his own life. He is able to make Elinor see what some of her faults are but at the same time he needs to understand that a woman will take it personal if they are being told that they are not being a good mother to their children. I love how he is able to keep his promises to Jack and Lynn—something that their father never did and that just warmed up my heart for Sean. He is a true gentleman and hopefully Elinor will realize that he is the true thing and he will to be the true father and husband to them and will not be a piecrust.
I enjoyed watching this broken family become something bigger and how they were able to overcome some obstacles that a child or wife should never have to do. The best part of this book was how one man was able to show the kids and the woman he loves that one can trust again and not be afraid. I highly recommend this book to anyone will to read a sensual romantic book that you teach you a spell or two. It made a believer out of me!
