Do You Believe In Magic - Book Cover


Tristram Tremaine has never fit in with his large and boisterous family. They believe they carry a magic gene that comes alive only when they fall in love with another who carries that gene. After disappointing his parents one too many times, Tris, the bad-boy brother, hits the road on his cycle, drifting away from his destiny.

That is, until he meets Maggie O'Brian, a spit-fire rodeo rider with a strange ability to calm wild horses. Maggie lives on the road too, avoiding relationships. Her mother left her, the boy she loved left her, even her dog left her. The last thing she wants in a man is a tomcat with “love ‘em and leave ‘em” written all over him.

But the connection between Tris and Maggie is instantaneous. After a mysterious accident nearly kills Tris, he and Maggie must learn to believe in their destiny and each other to stay one step ahead of those who will do anything to prevent them from claiming it.

Amazon/Goodreads rating:  5/5

WOW! This is all I can say about this book. From the beginning to the end this story had me entranced. The writing, the storytelling, the characters, LOVE. It all had a feel of magic in it, from the time you start reading to the end.

As soon as I finished this I wanted to read the others, and I will. Soon! Because this book is one of those that just leaves you wanting more, and to hell with everything else. I had trouble taking care of my kids while reading this. They survived so that's good. Hahahaha.

Now seriously. Susan Squires gained another reader who is a fan of her work, totally and immensely, because I love that she has been able to make me love magic. I like reading paranormal and all but magic and witches were never something I liked. I really don't know why is that because I watched movies and shows about them. Nevertheless, Susan made me love her books and I can honestly say everyone will love this and it's actually a story easily read. Not that there isn't a story but it flows. You can clearly see it while reading it. 




Do You Believe In Magic - Author PhotoSusan Squires grew up among the giant redwoods of California. She thought she was being practical by changing her major in college from theater to English literature. Immersed in a PhD. Program, she slowly realized that none of her graduating friends had work. So she dropped out after receiving a Master’s degree to take an paying job in the business world.

As an executive in a Fortune 500 company, she returned to her love of writing while continuing to hold her day-job, much to the amusement of her fellow executives. Her novel Danegeld, had already been purchased by Dorchester by the time she accepted a Golden Heart for Best Unpublished Paranormal Manuscript from Romance Writers of America. It was the first of an eclectic group of historical and contemporary paranormal stories known for their intensity.

Body Electric was named by Publishers Weekly one of the ten most influential paperbacks of 2002, for blending romance and science-fiction. Book List compared No More Lies to the works of Robin Cook and Michael Crichton, but it was also a Rita finalist for Best Published Paranormal Romance by Romance Writers of America.

Susan’s Companion Series for St. Martin’s Press, continued to garner attention with admiring reviews and several visits to the New York Times Bestseller List. Publishers Weekly named One with the Shadows a Best Book of the Year, and several of the series received starred reviews. Her books have won the many regional contests for published works of paranormal romantic fiction.

Susan no longer has to use tales of romance and adventure to escape budgets and projects. She finally left her day job, and researches and writes her books at the beach in Southern California, supported by three Belgian Sheepdogs and a wonderful husband named Harry who writes occult mysteries as H.R. Knight.

  2. Thanks so much for this wonderful review. I'm glad you like Tris and Maggie. I'm so fond of the Tremaine family that I'm going to be sorry when this series ends. I'm just finishing up book five of a planned six books, and thank goodness an unexpected character just showed up who wants his own story. So it looks like the series is now seven books. In celebration of the blog tour, Do You Believe in Magic? is $.99 at most ebook outlets.
    Again, thanks!
