AUTHOR: NORA ROBERTS
Details: no. 1 The Donovan Legacy
It's hard to know what to write about a novel by Nora Roberts because the books all tend to follow the same basic story line. Which should be putting me off reading them, because I tend to detest predictability in my books, but has for some reason I can't quite put my finger on, the opposite effect when it comes to Roberts. Her books feel like coming home to a warm house on a cold night; familiar and comfortable.
In this series, we meet the Donovans, Morgana, Anastasia and Sebastian, three cousins from a long line of witches, each with their own special powers.
Nate Kirkland, writer of block buster horror movies wants to meet up with Morgana in order to research the subject of his next script: witchcraft.
Not that he believes she actually has any magical powers, but he does find himself attracted to her. When he does eventually come to believe in her powers, it turns out that he and his past are the real obstacle to any future together.
