. . . . After complying, Jared engages in a sword fight and believes he has vanquished his foe, but when he returns to New Orleans, he finds evil still threatens all he loves. Kendra, not knowing why Jared broke their engagement, devastated, finds solace in another's arms.
. . . . With help from an ancestor's spirit, can Jared defeat the dark magic descending over the Big Easy while winning back the woman he loves?
This contemporary fantasy set in and around the city of New Orleans is filled with witches and other unworldly things. There are several strong points to this story: the dialogue is crisp and natural among all the characters; a most intriguing setting and best of all--a cast of well-drawn characters:
* Jared Dupre, a man among men, who doesn't hesitate to rescue his idiot brother. Again. Despite what the woman he is about to marry feels.
* Kendra O'Connell, also a witch, with a crew of gal pals who aren't only there for comic relief, is a woman with a brain. Any man would be advised to be wary of her temper.
* Adam Montief, a demon witch who just doesn't know when to quit and go home.
The best part of all is when Kendra and Jared work together--none of this hero saving the damsel in distress type of ending, thank you very much--to fight their battle as a team in order to attain their own happy ever after.
On a scale of 1 to 5, His Magic Touch deserves a 4.5.
