Angus by Melissa Schroeder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The Clan continues on their quest to remove their curse in this romantic paranormal read. This one included a bit more magic than the previous installment which made it a bit more “paranormal-y.”
Maggie is on the run from her past. She’s done things that have forced her into hiding with her adorable son, Jack. Sadly, Jack has been forced to grow up quick because he’s magically gifted. Maggie, on the other hand, has lost her magic, until Angus shows up at her work. Based on the witches diary (from book 1), the Clan determined that Angus is the next one fated to complete his quest to get them closer to the cure. As the most scientifically inclined of his family, Angus is probably least likely to believe in the magic that they need from Maggie. Lucky for him, Maggie is a force to be reckoned with. She is a wonderful balance to Angus and his “Scully” tendencies. Their romance was really sweet and sexy without being too over the top.
My favorite character in this book was Jack. He was adorable and was mature beyond his years because of his gifts. I really hope that this growing family keeps getting more and more interesting characters. I’m especially interested in the new additions from Maggie’s friends and where they’ll end up (and how it ties into the diary!). This series is a great blend of naughty highlander romance and a great paranormal mystery.
