    Review also available on my blog: http://neverkissandblog.blogspot.com/... This is the second in the Children of Merlin series.

This series is self-published by Susan Squires and I consider it at least a spiritual successor to the Companion/Da Vinci Time Travel series’ on account of the sentiment in The Mists of Time. I really liked Do You Believe In Magic? because it really captured the way that you can love your family and still feel like you don’t belong there. Drew Tremaine is not an easy character to like at first but this is not just a story where she falls in love, it’s also one where she grows up and sees beyond her own wants and needs. At first Drew is with Jane, a friend of the family and I hope Kemble’s future girl because she deserves it. Jane tries to caution Drew about going all in with her boyfriend but Drew ignores it because when Drew finds her other half she’ll make Jane look ordinary in comparison. Yes Drew repeatedly disparages her “best” friend assuming her to be jealous in the first chapter. So when she finds out that her boyfriend, whose name escapes me, is a douche picking up women from all over campus it’s almost something you want to happen. So finally humbled, Drew is watching TV when she sees Dowser in the background. Alternately disturbed by how attracted to Dowser she was and convinced that it means he might be her destiny, Drew decides to go and look for the guy from the show after she has a vision of herself in Miami. What really makes this book is the way that Drew grows as a person. Upon meeting Dowser and discovering that he’s older than she expected and very, very drunk Drew experiences a crisis as he’s not what she envisioned for herself and she now has to face the fact that she isn’t in control. Dowser’s conflict is also really interesting, it’s not that he loves Alice it’s that he feels guilty for doing as she asked and ending her suffering as well as that he has stopped grieving. I like this as it doesn’t diminish what he had before and it doesn’t make the process of getting over her be to fall in love with Drew. He has already gotten through the bulk of his grief and he’s now missing Alice and feeling guilt and an Alcoholic. The real show stealer for me though was Kemble. Kemble is desperate to please his father and fulfill the expectations that he has for him. He’s also jealous of how easy his father has it as an Adapter and he thinks that the fact Tris and Drew have found their mates first means that he doesn’t have one. Added to that the way he hacks through anything to get to his sister… He’s a bit of a nerd. And if you don’t know already you do now, I love a hot nerd for my hero. The other thing I really liked was how Brian Tremaine (their father), is struggling to connect with his kids, only now realising after the first book and something shortly before it how much it makes them feel inadequate when he masters in half an hour something they’ve worked hard to learn. And you can tell he just wanted to share their passions so he feels guiltier over it now. The plot of Morgan La Fay also takes a more sinister tone with the other side gaining the first artefact they want. The Sword, or Excalibur, linking back to both Arthur and Tarot cards. What I will say is that the Tremaine family refuse to believe a person has Celtic ancestry unless they look it or have a Celtic last name. For such smart people they forget it has been centuries since Merlin was around. Long enough that marrying someone with the gene isn’t disturbing. What happens if someone got the gene from their mother and had a very non-celtic father? Inheritance works both ways and the gene doesn’t have to be active to be inherited. In fact in this series the only people with the magic activated and children are the Tremaine parents and Tris and Maggie from book one. So Dowser might have gotten his power gene from his mother as well as his Italian appearance. I understand that obvious Celtic ancestry is the best way to be sure, but to ignore everyone without obvious Celtic ancestry is silly. In short I really liked this, it captures a realistic view on all the issues a person can have with their family and still get the love aspect right. Read it.

    HE’S A MAGIC MAN (Children of Merlin #2) by Susan Squires HE’S A MAGIC MAN is the second novel in Susan Squires’ Children of Merlin series relating magic and power to the descendants of Merlin-the Tremaine family.

Drew Tremaine had hoped that she found the one to unlock her magic but finding out that he had a bevy of woma HE’S A MAGIC MAN (Children of Merlin #2) by Susan Squires HE’S A MAGIC MAN is the second novel in Susan Squires’ Children of Merlin series relating magic and power to the descendants of Merlin-the Tremaine family. The belief that each descendant would come into their power and magic, when they meet the one person that will unlock their destiny, is the premise behind the Children of Merlin. Drew Tremaine had hoped that she found the one to unlock her magic but finding out that he had a bevy of woman at his beck and call more than proved that he was not the one. But watching an episode of ‘Treasure Hunters’ Drew found herself inexplicably drawn to a man in the background of the show. Could this man be her destiny? The one? And with the questions came a vision of the future that found Drew somewhere in the Florida Keys. But she had to be careful if her family discovered that she was heading to the Sunshine state alone, looking for a stranger that she knew nothing about. Michaelangelo (Dowser) Redmond was getting drunk and needed to stay numb to forget the past. And when a beautiful woman came looking for him in the sleaziest bar in town, he knew there would be trouble. But he never expected to find himself tied to his own bed while Drew Tremaine played nursemaid to his hangover and detox DTs. A former Delta Forcer Operator, Michael could not believe his reaction to Drew or the sexual chemistry that came between. Dowser was psychic and his special ability meant he could be the ‘one’ for Drew. But Dowser’s revelations about his past dampened Drew’s excitement when she learned there was someone else. Dowser’s latest job involved a treasure hunter named Brandon St. Claire and his girlfriend Rhiannon, and he wanted Drew along for the ride. Finding the Santa Angela would ensure a healthy pay day for Dowser, and using his psychic powers to ‘find’ made the job that much more easy. But Brandon St. Claire wanted Dowser to find something more and when he did, they promised to bring someone back from his past- a promise that he didn’t know if they could keep. Drew and Michaels’s relationship is difficult at the start. Believing Michael is her destiny, Drew continues to nurse Michael back to health following their run-in at the bar. But as the days go by, the sexual tension increases and neither is willing to admit to their desire. And Michael is having difficulty releasing the memories from his past. And the longer the two are together, the more powerful their magic becomes. Throughout the novel we are aware of a secondary storyline regarding a search for a talisman-a mystical sword. And Drew’s visions are some how connected. With the continuing threat against her family and the Children of Merlin mystery, there were others hoping to use the power for themselves and Drew’s escape to the Florida Keys had put her in more danger than she had ever thought possible and the very real possibility that she would lose Michael forever. And the entire Tremaine family was now in danger, when Michael revealed the truth behind Drew’s connection and the sword. HE’S A MAGIC MAN is another fantastic addition to Susan Squires’ Children of Merlin series. Well written, fast paced, action packed and at times a heart breaking storyline that had me dabbing a few tears. The character development flowed easily throughout the story and in the end you loved the Tremaine’s as though they were your own family.

    I got this as a Goodreads Firstreads win, so I'm going to summarize a few points here while the book is still fresh in my mind since I don't have time for a fully involved review: 1. Felt like it took too long to read. Why? I'm a fast reader. I can get through the early books of the Wheel of Time in 3-5 days. This one, at (less than) half that, took me to the far end of that scale. The first half of the book kept my interest nice and fast, but the more I read, the less I started caring about what I got this as a Goodreads Firstreads win, so I'm going to summarize a few points here while the book is still fresh in my mind since I don't have time for a fully involved review: 1.

The first half of the book kept my interest nice and fast, but the more I read, the less I started caring about what happened to the people, or in general. 2. Been there, done that. The descendants of Merlin, and people who get their power from Morgan La Fey. Athurian-era artifacts. Anybody remember Stargate SG-1/Atlantis? 3. The raging alcoholic. Okay, score for throwing this in as a twist, and giving Drew the balls to do what she did. However... we're talking, what, a week? Alcoholism doesn't just go away in a week, no matter how thoroughly detoxed. Sure, throw the magic in and everything's hunky-dory, but there is such a thing as relying TOO MUCH on the magic. 4. Drew's got a pair. This is one ballsy woman. After what we see her face early on in the book, she seems to have this bottomless pit of determination, while still maintaining a healthy dose of "what if"? (Not like she lets that stop her. Like I said, she's got a pair.) I was cheering her on through the entire detox. That gave a REAL nice balance to the whiny high schooler she became any time her gift/power was involved (No, I'm not putting that bit down - considering her familial status and everything else, it almost makes more sense than just about anything else in the book). All in all, it felt like the first half of the book is where Squires really took her time and thought out what she was writing. Maybe even first 2/3 - then its almost as if a reminder popped up on the calender and it became, "Oh, crap! Deadline!" I do plan on reading other books in this series, so I can get a better feel for Squires as an author.

    I loved He's A Magic Man. I really wondered at the beginning how in the world Squires was going to pull this off, as Dowser isn't exactly hero material. Except he is such the epitome of wounded hero, that you just know it's going to be worth while. What was interesting, and what I really loved, was the fact that Alice, Dowser's dead first wife and true love, kept working on Dowser to let her go and find new happiness. And when the bad guys give Dowser a chance to reunite with Alice, well, if you I loved He's A Magic Man.

And when the bad guys give Dowser a chance to reunite with Alice, well, if you'd been drowning your sorrows for two years in alcohol over her loss, of course you'd try to get her back because you've programmed yourself to want that. The way Squires resolves that sticky issue is nothing short of brilliant. Oh yeah, and Drew Tremaine is just the perfect heroine, not to mention the perfect heroine for our Dowser. Watching these two fall in love was so much fun! If you love paranormal romance, and if you love magic, and if you love well-drawn bad guys and thrilling action and a tightly plotted storyline, then you're going to love this series.

    I received this book for free via a Goodreads giveaway. I did not see the ending of this book coming. I was a little iffy about it from the beginning because of the title. I mean, who names novels like that? I expected it to be - in all honesty - horrible. I was happily proven wrong as I sped through the novel with breaks only to sleep, eat and take notes in class. The characters feel alive. The magic is made to feel plausible. The situations that unfold flow naturally. This novel is a gem of fa I received this book for free via a Goodreads giveaway.

    One of the things I like about this series is the author's ability to make each story and each romance so different. This one was pretty angsty. The hero had issues but the heroine was pretty tough hung in there for him. The over arching story really picks up in this one.
