Willow, Wish for Me by Jacquie Rogers
A high-society debutante seeking solace as an herb farmer in the Old West.
A high-stakes gambler hired to retrieve said debutante for her unscrupulous suitor.
A money-hungry, status seeking ex-fiancé who doesn’t get the “ex” part.
And Merlin, King Arthur’s powerful sorcerer, re-emerges as a mule to fulfill his own destiny.
Idaho Territory: 1885
Willow escaped Boston and is now a content herb farmer, but she’s lonely. When making a frivolous wish upon a star, she dreams a man who became her heart’s desire. One day, as she was weeding, that very man rides up on a mule! But he’s not the man of her dreams–instead, he’s been hired to hand her over to the one man she despises–her ex-fiancé. How could Willow’s wish go so awry?
My (short) review:
I’ve loved Jacquie Rogers’ stories since I read Down Home Ever Lovin’ Mule Blues and she hasn’t disappointed me yet. This is another hit. Willow is funny and sweet.
Merlin is doing penance as a donkey, and his current goal is to find true love for Luke Tyson. Unfortunately, Merlin hasn’t quite caught up to the 19th century, and his role as Cyrano de Bergerac doesn’t go well. Offers to slay dragons don’t go over well in 1885. Merlin doesn’t really improve much from there. Join Luke, Willow, Merlin, and DeborahAnne, Willow’s freakishly wise chicken, as they give the bad guys the boot.
I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
