A Merge of Magic
A Fay of Skye Prequel – Part One of Six
Viola Fay Seward had the terrible misfortune to fall in love with her soul mate at the age of sixteen. Rather than inform him of this calamity, she ignored him, in the hope that it would go away. Teenaged love doesn’t actually last, right?
Ian MacAlasdair grew up envying his neighbors, the Sewards. As children of a marquess, his much lower-titled father encouraged him to make friends with Malcolm, the closest to him in age. When the Seward children’s magical talents bloomed, they were allowed to train their gifts. When Ian’s power arrived, he was packed off to a boarding school that didn’t teach magic. But every summer he came home, and every summer his attraction to his friend’s bewitching little sister grew.
Now a man, Ian has started learning magic and joined a decadent crowd that encourages him to cast elaborate illusions. With every success, Ian becomes more aware that the bewitching younger sister is a sensation in society, and he is far beneath her notice.
Except that Viola has never been able to stop noticing him, which irritates her to no end. She is an independent woman, and tells herself she doesn’t believe in soul mates.
Until the day that Ian lets himself be goaded into casting a spell beyond his limits, and Viola uses her own magic to help him–and that magic stays in Ian.
Now, the two are permanently connected by magic, and must find a way to separate their gifts without giving in to the unwelcome desire that continues to grow between them.
