Hidden Magic by Stephany Wallace is filled with romance and magic. Cynwrig is an immortal Druid, living his life to protect his people and keep them hidden. Guilt over the loss of the High Priest has kept him distant, even from his brother. Protecting his people from the Romans is his top priority, until he meets her. Briana is an environmental lawyer, working at her first job and trying to be brave enough to make her first friend. Her grandpa kept her hidden, with an overprotective nature that she never understood. Then she meets Cynwrig. The connection between them is powerful, leading them to finding a place with each other they didn't know they were looking for.
A witty romantic comedy with a sweet lyrical quality. Hidden Magic is a fantasy adventure as much as it's a romance, with passion, charm, and humor. Briana is a modern woman while Cynwrig is an ancient man. It's really fun to see him set in his ways while his brother tries to adapt to the new way of life and language, using words like “bro” and “cool.” Briana is the classic funny leading lady. She talks to herself, and fully believed Cynwrig to be an imaginary friend. The humor is just one part of it. The connection between them is strong so romance is inevitable, but that doesn't deter from enjoying their fun relationship. Their humor and the real way they connect make it easy to fall into the love story. It's also a bit sad. There is the tragic backdrop of the Druids being killed, and chased out of Ireland by the Romans. Any lover of romance will want to read this!
