5.0 out of 5 stars a magical tale from a talented writer
As a long time fan of Linda Winstead Jones' faerytale books, like the Hound of Haskell Hall, I was sorry to see her talent channelled into the contemporary tales of Silhouette Intimate Moments. She has a special magical way about her. A new Publisher and a new series, FINALLY, more geared to her special talent. This is the first tale of three sisters (Moon Witch comes...

This review is from: The Sun Witch (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
As a long time fan of Linda Winstead Jones' faerytale books, like the Hound of Haskell Hall, I was sorry to see her talent channelled into the contemporary tales of Silhouette Intimate Moments. She has a special magical way about her. A new Publisher and a new series, FINALLY, more geared to her special talent. This is the first tale of three sisters (Moon Witch comes in May) from Berkley Sensations. It's a tale of three special sisters, the women of Fyne. The three sisters have lived on an enchanted mountain, as all the women of Fyne have for three centuries, hiding their supernatural abilities. They are witches and have been curst to fall passionately in love, but their love with bring only sorrow as the men they love are destined to die before their 30th birthday.
This story is about Sophie Fyne. Sophie is the youngest and weakest in power of the Fyne Witches. She watched her older sister, Isadora, fall in love and marry, only to have her young husband die after their brief marriage. Sophie, Isadora and Juliet have resigned themselves to their fate. Only Sophie yearns to have a child. Isadora and Juliet have taken a vow never to have anything to do with men again, but Sophie knows there is only one way to have the child she wants. As dreams of a green-eyed stranger haunts her, she is startled to discover the wounded stranger - with green eyes - by the side of her favourite bathing pool. She lays hands upon him, healing, but she cannot resist him so she uses the night to father the child she so desperately wants. She leaves him sleeping and healed, and her with the child she craves.
A year later, still haunted by the visions of the angel who healed him, not quite believing her real, Kane returns to discover if the woman was real or a product of his being wounded. He finds the angel, only to discover she is not an angel, but a witch, and has his child. He wants to marry her, yet Sophie is ever mindful of the curse and how his life will be lost if she binds herself to him. However, fate pushes them together, when Shandley, a man who desire Sophie, kidnaps her child. Kane and Sophie must join together to save their child from the evil Shandley.
It's Jones at her very magical best. I am very glad to see her back in the genre where she shines the most and eagerly look forward to Juliet's and Isadora's stories.

... I brought this book based on the review.

Basically it is about three sisters who have a family curse. That curse is that if they ever fall in love the man dies before his 30th birthday.

Therefore the women try to stay away from men. The youngest of the sisters Sophie fyne is young and nieve. When she was out swimming one day she happens to come across Kane. For the pass three days Sophie had been having very sensul dreams about him.

And as she is destined not to love she does want a child therefore she sets about seducing the man.

When Kane first sees Sophie he thought that she as just a dream as he was drinking a lot that day and drowning his sorrows over his brothers death.

After thier brief meeting together Sophie wishes him good luck and happiness as he had given her a child.

Never forgetting his dream angel. Kane returns to search for her a year later. And when he did the plot started to unfold because sophie good luck to she wished him had ran out.

His past was about to catch up with him. And Sophie being beautiful like a ray of sunshine people were bound to get jelous and suspicious.

When their daughter is kidnapped it is up to the parents to come to gether and save their daughter from the dark forces at hand.

With a prophecy to be fulfilled and family to be reunited Will this couple find a happy ending as well as to find a way to get rid of the 300 year old curse?

I gave this book a rating of 3 because it took me a while to get in to it. i did not know what sort of setting it was in. At first is seemed all medieval then a bit western when she was describing the town where the sisters live. Then more high tech once they gone to the capital city with their lifts and 13 floors.
Besides from that it was a good read. A good deal of mild passion. And also some un expected romance at the end which have me grasping that i didn't buy the second book along with the first.

Just a warning to fellow romance readers. This book ends in like a clif hanger so you need to buy the second book along with the first otherwise you be like me having to wait 4 to 5 weeks for the next one.

Good book just not a keeper.
