Captivated (The Donovan Legacy #1)



His interest in her was purely professional . . . Or so he told himself.

This was a very fun book with just a flair of the supernatural and fantasy.  I liked that Morgana doesn’t push her beliefs or skills, but is quietly amused by those who doubt without coming across as condescending.  As Nash tries to get inspiration for his next movie, he finds quickly that he’s biting off more than he can chew.  When Morgana finally decides she’s had enough, I laughed out loud.

The best part of all the characters throughout the book is that they’re unabashedly themselves.  In romance novels one of the characters so often has low self-esteem and it can get repetitive.  Of course there has to be drama and conflict, but it’s nice when it’s about something else too.

Warning: Contains sexual content.

Rating: 4 stars!
