Review: DRUID'S DAUGHTER by Jean Hart Stewart


3.5 of 5 stars

Druid magic is frowned upon in 1898 London, but that doesn't stop Morgan McAfee from going to see Chief Inspector Lance Dellafield after she had vision about a missing child. Lance is skeptical about Morgan's abilities and she finds him condescending, but neither can deny that they feel a physical attraction between them. However, a relationship between the aristocratic Inspector and a Druid witch is impossible. When a serial killer starts targeting prostitutes, Lance again turns to Morgan for help solving the case.

The author does a good job of building the growing attraction between Morgan and Lance. Their scenes together sizzle with sexual tension. I also enjoyed the subplot involving Morgan's mother Vivianne. The story flowed along well with a few twists and turns thrown in toward a predicable ending. I would have liked to have more of the Druid ways and magic discussed in the book though because it seems like Druidism took a back seat to the romance aspect of the book. With 8 books in this series, I'll definitely check out the next book. Fans of romance and mystery will enjoy this story.
