Molly Graham has a love affair with magic. As a professional magician, she’s wowed crowds with her performances. But when she’s down on her luck and can’t find new gigs, it’s hard to view life as enchanted. With a draining bank account and a heavy heart, she decides to cheer herself up by performing random acts of kindness. She writes anonymous notes of encouragement and leaves them around town, but she never dreamed that these secret notes would lead to a flirtation with Zane Wilson, one of the sexiest men around. The only problem is that Zane doesn’t actually know who she is. Everyone in town thinks Molly is weird, and if Zane found out that Molly was his mystery pen pal, he would run in the other direction.

Dragon Shifter Zane Wilson is having a rough time of it. His cheating girlfriend left him right before the IRS decided to audit his business taxes. So a flirtation with a secret pen pal is just the distraction he needs. When that flirtation turns serious, though, he’s desperate to find the woman behind the mystery notes. He’s also falling for Molly Graham, the town magician whom everyone thinks is a little strange—but Zane thinks is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. As Zane’s friendship with Molly deepens, and the mystery note writer is harder than he thought to track down, Zane has to decide who he really loves—and what kind of magic tricks he’s willing to pursue in the name of romance.

Will Zane be able to figure out the magic behind the mystery note writer before it’s too late? And will Molly be brave enough to open her heart to one of the town’s most popular bachelors?

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

You cannot help but feel for Molly.  If it weren’t for bad luck that girl would have no luck at all.  It’s not easy being thought of as the town oddball, even though those with that opinion don’t know her at all.  She’s desperate enough to be begging at Cassie’s bar to perform for tips.  But not so desperate that she can’t spread around a little kindness.  And that simple act probably brought her more joy than she ever expected, since it brought Zane into her life.

Zane needed those small acts of kindness probably as much as Molly did but in a different way.  What began as a light flirtation with a mystery woman turned into finding his mate in the most unexpected place.

It’s so easy to see and feel the life lesson in Lone Star Magic – just because you’re different doesn’t mean you’re without value… especially to the right person.

Molly and Zane’s story was an emotional journey.  I enjoyed their story and definitely feel that these two truly deserve each other.  This story was heavy on the human romance and light on the Shifter… but when Zane’s dragon did make an appearance it certainly happened at the right time and made an impression.  Looking forward to the next story in this series.
