All Lily Bordeaux wants is a shop of her own in the French Quarter, but the family legacy, passed down from her Salem witch ancestors, is bearing down on her despite her efforts to avoid it. A series of events place her in danger, but an old friend from college, Bennett Duschesne, may be the one person who can convince her to confront her past demons and embrace her gifts. As she grows closer to Bennett, evil forces threaten to destroy everything she loves. Will she have accepted her family legacy, only to find she was too late? Dark Destiny is the first of three novellas, PG rating: mild language and innuendo.
First of all, isn't this cover gorgeous? It perfectly depicts this mystical novella. The author takes you to the French Quarter where magic exists, as do evil voodoo men. Right away you are brought head first into action and romance. Lily and her aunt are injured in an explosion, but she is reunited with her best friend, Bennett, who takes care of her. For years, Lily has been avoiding her magical heritage, but once she is confronted by the man who tried to kill her and her aunt, Lily, along with her sisters, do their best to try to stop his evil plans.
I really enjoyed this novella. It reads fast and is full of page-turning events. I loved the magic and the mystery. I can't wait for the next one.
