Okay, I have to admit that after reading this book, I'm a little in love with Raymond Wilson. He is sweet, honest, a protector and ever so kind as well as being sexy, handsome and just wonderful. Yes, you could definitely say I'm in love with him. Then you have Millie, and she is just fabulous. She knows what she wants, but finding her voice to say it is another thing altogether. Throw in some magic, a nasty social climbing-suitor and a mother terrified her daughter will be left on the shelf and you get a fabulous story and some very memorable characters. I loved it!
In 1905 New York City, affluent Millie Moore wants to be outspoken like the suffragettes she admires. She also wants to rid herself of an annoying and controlling suitor. For a well-brought up young lady whose mother fears her impending spinsterhood, speaking her mind is an uphill battle.
When Raymond Wilson sees Millie at a rally, it’s love at first sight. Not wanting his stutter to ruin his chances, he enchants a little candy heart to do his talking for him.
For Millie, Raymond is a breath of fresh air. And maybe, just maybe, someone she could love. But for her social-climbing suitor Guy Elliot, he’s a threat to his plans. And Raymond isn’t the only one who knows something about magic. Now the ante has been upped and Millie is the prize…
