In the village of La Souf, Jean Louis is known as “Black Magic Man,” but his feats of magic as a sorcerer are nothing compared to the abilities he keeps hidden from human eyes. Jean Louis is under the tutelage of a Master Magician, and telepathy is only one of his many talents. It’s a talent that leads him to beautiful, sensual Solange Esnard, who instantly triggers all Jean’s primal urges. He recognizes in Lange the spirit of his long-gone love, but convincing her of that will take every bit of skill and talent he has, maybe even his death.
Solange has known about the powers of the Black Magic Man ever since she was a child. She has no reason to believe she would attract the attention of one, especially one as powerful as Jean Louis. She is happily married and loves her husband to death. When she is subjected to the unwelcome attention of Jean Louis, will she be strong enough to pit her will against that of a Black Magic Man? Only love, true cunning, and a bit of luck may possibly prove her successful in this battle for the one she love
I received this book to give an honest review.
I have liked this author's work since I learned of her. She has a way with pulling you into the story with talk of dark magic and islands.
This story is no different than the book White Magic Woman only difference is it deals with a man. Jean Louise he is known as the Black Magic Man he has many talents but he has kind of kept a lid on his true power. When he sees a woman named Solange he is convinced she is the resemblance of a lost long lover and he is willing to do anything to get her to be his. Solange living on the island has heard of this Black Magic Man and when she starts hearing things and feels a spirit around her she knows it is him. Solange has an advantage to defeating the Black Magic Man but will she be able to stop him for good before he does more harm to her?
I have to say the world this author created with voodoo and the island just screams magic and for me to come and visit though I am not sure about a visit from the Black Magic Man. Love and Lust can go together in some way but it is not meant to be in this story.
I really enjoyed how Solange wanted to not stay at home all the time, she had a job before she got married so I was glad to see her convince her husband that she needed to be out of the house.
Her husband Rupert was okay as a character you can tell he truly loved his wife and was willing to go to whatever lengths to help her in her fight with the voodoo.
If you like paranormal romance, voodoo then pick this book up.
