When magic practitioners meet their lifemate, the legendary soulmate imperative arises immediately between them insuring love at first sight. No one can remember ever hearing of a case in which one of the soulmates reject the feelings and in turn the other.
Computer wizard Clay Morgan encounters his soulmate when he meets Francie Stevens. However, instead of jumping into his arms, she denies any feelings for him. He learns she was hurt by a man and so rejects romantic entanglements. Still she needs Clay to uncover the hacker causing havoc with her company's data systems. He plans to identify the culprit and persuade Francie they belong together; but first he must get her to believe in the magic of love.
The sequel to THE OLDEST KIND OF MAGIC, DO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC? is a fabulous romantic fantasy with the twist that the hero knows who his soulmate is, but she rejects his belief system and his love; two direct hits to his heart. Clay is a fine lead male mage as a frustrated wannabe lover; but the story line is owned bell, book, and candle by the disbelieving Francie; who disavows magic or love exist.
