Willow Lang is part of two worlds – she is half human and half Fae. But bad experiences while she was a teen caused Willow to decide to all but ignore the Fae part of her blood. Now she loves her job restoring art but she feels pretty lost and lonely, not sure she belongs in either world. When Willow is offered a chance to travel to Ireland and work on restoring a private art collection, she jumps at it. After all, her job will be waiting for her so what was there for her to lose?
Shayne Bantry is a Squire and he collects and sales antiques. But that isn’t all – he is also a high Druid priest. But that isn’t all – he is also a high Druid priest sworn to uphold the ancient Fae rites. Believing that the Fae have wronged him, Shayne has stopped his duties. He hired Willow to work on his art collection, so why is he worried about his heart? Love isn’t something Shayne believes he can give anyone, at least not until find the pieces of a Fae relic mask. Not the easiest task to accomplish when the person he asked to help him search is suddenly throwing out false leads.
Willow is suddenly tossed into a whirlwind of intrigue and danger along with potential erotic passion from more than one front – the Squire, the Fae Prince and the handsome gypsy. The strangest thing is Willow suddenly seems to have lots of Fae attention – from both the Seelie and the Unseelie. Shayne is trying to fight his intense attraction to Willow and because of his actions, she doesn’t know what to believe about him. Even more confusing, Prince Breslyn has suddenly reappeared into Willow’s life, yet he doesn’t know her, and stranger yet is the mysterious winged Daoine Sidhe who seems to be protecting her. Just as the danger becomes stronger, Shayne and Willow finally discover just how right their passion is but there are still secrets that could destroy it in a snap. When all secrets are revealed, will it bring Shayne and Willow together, or is the gap between them just too large to ever be bridged?
Can a disillusioned Druid Priest and a half Fae woman find the key to unlock an eternity together? Shayne and Willow are hoping so in Shee Willow – Legend.
I couldn’t wait to being this second encounter in the Legend world and I was not disappointed. I loved Willow immediately with her spunk and humor but I have say it took me a bit to understand Shayne. As I watched him fight his feelings for Willow, I had to wonder what was up and when I discovered why, I just wanted to hug him. Seeing Willow embrace her Fae half and have them show her that she was indeed part of their world had me cheering for her. While I was totally captivated by Shayne and Willow’s story, I couldn’t help having to cheer for Prince Breslyn also. Danger and suspense ribboned around passion made it hard for me to put down the book. The advancement of the plotline has me hoping I don’t have to wait very long before I can discover the next chapter in the Legend world. Shee Willow – Legend is magical, erotic, and passionate, with suspense filled danger lurking in every corner. In other words, it’s one heck of a book that I can’t wait to re-read. It is also Joyfully Recommended as a world you won’t want to miss.
I have to also recommend that you read this series in order (Spellbound – Legend and then this one) as some of the characters are returning and the plot line is an evolving one.
