Born with magic in her blood, Cora
Phillips is pretty certain she was skipped by the dominant
traits of her family's heritage. She knows her mother and
sister are the ones who will keep the Lune traditions since
she lacks the talent and the desire to take up the legacy of
Dragonkeeper. She left the neo-pagan lifestyle behind, along
with the velvet, lace and the social whirl her kinswomen revel
in—yet she finds herself sucked back into it during a bout of
sleep deprivation and an invitation to celebrate Winter
Solstice with them.
Much to her mother’s and sister's
surprise, and certainly to Cora's dismay, her reluctant
efforts to reconnect with her 'inner divinity' winds up with a
pair of ancient dragons in her sacred circle. Cora doesn't
know what to think when her mother informs her that it's fate,
with every Dragonkeeper issuing a call to mate—except nobody
counted on Cora having the ability to conjure one dragon,
never mind two!
Ms. Ryan-Davis has created a delightful,
if reluctant, heroine in Cora. She's well grounded in the
reality that most people know, yet the author does an
excellent job handling the aspects of Wicca and neo-pagan
ritual and religion which I found a pleasant surprise.
Mating Call sets the
groundwork for what promises to be an intriguing tale of
passion, self-discovery and mystery. The 'owners' of the
dragons are two very different men with seemingly very
different motives that will both surprise and delight the
reader. You'll find yourself eagerly awaiting the next
installment in what promises to be an enthralling story of one
woman's journey through unexpected changes in her life.
