More About Ann Macela
Hi, I'm Ann Macela, and I write enchanting, smart, and sensual contemporary romance and contemporary light paranormal romance. Sometimes with a touch of humor, sometimes with a little sorrow, always with passion and emotion. My latest books are a two-book contemporary romance series, Wolves in Business. Wolf in Jester's Clothing and Wolf on Thin Ice tell the story of two brothers who find their true loves where they least expect them. Warning: These are NOT shapeshifters, but alpha businessmen. Like the Magic Series, it's best to read them in order. My award-winning Magic Series is about a group of people who can cast spells to help them with their everyday jobs. Wouldn't you like to have an ability that would help you type faster, make accurate change, fix the plumbing, or grow flowers and vegetables? Or whatever it is that you do? And these people, who call themselves practitioners, are guaranteed to find their soul mates. Ready or not, and whether or not they want one at that particular moment. As the series progresses, the magic gets more complicated and so do the relationships. Included in the series now are the last two stories, never before published. Windswept won the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Romance, Small Press, 2008, and several other awards. Writing this standalone contemporary with a historical twist took me back to my first love, the study of history, and it definitely shows off my Texas roots. There's a terrible secret in the papers of the Windswept Plantation . . . I'm a native Gulf Coast Texan, now living in The Frozen North of Chicagoland. I started life reading mysteries, then sci-fi and fantasy. When I discovered romances, I saw a way to combine all the aspects of books that I liked into my own stories. And what a welcome difference from writing computer manuals--my old job and which has no magic about it at all. Let me know what you think of my stories. Contact me either at ann@AnnMacela.com or AnnMacela@msn.com P.S. Those of you interested in how my magic works, check out the article, A Theory of Magic, on my website.
Ann Macela currently resides in Native Texan Tranplanted to Ch, in the state of Illinois.
Reviews - What do customers think about Do You Believe in Magic??
Wow May 21, 2008
Had a hard time putting this one down. My first book by this author and I'm looking forward to more. A great fantasy/romantic read as the other reviewers have said.
Easy read Apr 27, 2008
This is the second book in Macela's "Magic" series.
STORY As with book one, "The Oldest Kind of Magic," (OKM) the story was entertaining; unlike OKM, "Do You Believe in Magic" (DYBM) did not have a powerful subplot. In OKM , the subplot is about theft within a manufacturing company (that's not a spoiler - you figure this out in chapter one). In DYBM, the subplot is about industrial/computer espionage (again, not a spoiler), but the story is not as edgy as in the former tale. CHARACTERS/ACTION/LANGUAGE Macela shows you just enough about her characters for you to identify with them and get the feeling that there is more to them. The romance/seduction/intercourse scenes are - um - thorough, without being overdone (although I found the phrase 'first mating' a bit annoying). The use of curse-words is rare, appropriate to the situation, and for the most part mild. RECOMMENDATION I recommend this book to anyone looking for an enjoyable fantasy/supernatural story but wanting a break from intense good vs evil, world-saving, battle magic.
fabulous romantic fantasy Oct 7, 2007
When magic practitioners meet their lifemate, the legendary soulmate imperative arises immediately between them insuring love at first sight. No one can remember ever hearing of a case in which one of the soulmates reject the feelings and in turn the other.
Computer wizard Clay Morgan encounters his soulmate when he meets Francie Stevens. However, instead of jumping into his arms, she denies any feelings for him. He learns she was hurt by a man and so rejects romantic entanglements. Still she needs Clay to uncover the hacker causing havoc with her company's data systems. He plans to identify the culprit and persuade Francie they belong together; but first he must get her to believe in the magic of love.
The sequel to THE OLDEST KIND OF MAGIC, DO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC? is a fabulous romantic fantasy with the twist that the hero knows who his soulmate is, but she rejects his belief system and his love; two direct hits to his heart. Clay is a fine lead male mage as a frustrated wannabe lover; but the story line is owned bell, book, and candle by the disbelieving Francie; who disavows magic or love exist.
