More Romance Please Review for Making Magic – 5 Hearts

Making MagicMaking Magic just got another book blogger review – and it is a wonderful one!

Cary Frates at More Romance Please gave Making Magic a FIVE Heart rating! A couple of great quotes from the review:

“Making Magic is a beautiful and powerful story full of all kinds of deep and meaningful emotions. As usual, Ms. Cooper opens our eyes to the wonders of the Appalachian Mountains and her people, while gently schooling us on the woes we are bringing on ourselves and the earth by insensitive practices. In this novel, she also schools us, through her obvious love for these mountains, on the variety of music and musical instruments that are, perhaps, commonplace in the Appalachians. Some of the names seemed familiar, but when I Googled them, just to be sure, I received quite an education, and loved every minute of it.”

“As usual, Ms. Cooper’s story is beautiful, moving, and a very good read. Again ~ Very well done.”

Cary also includes a wonderful post on the musical instruments that Jake creates. Great photos. Please click on the banner and check it out. Say hi to Cary while you’re there!

A KISS for Book Hooks – Have I HOOKED you? #MFRWhooks

Welcome to my contribution to Book Hooks, a weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog.

This is your chance to get hooked on a new book as various members of MFRW share short excerpts from their books. If you enjoy their sample, you can look for more information or even purchase the book through the links in their post.

I’m sharing another little sampling of More Than Magic, my new book that just came out yesterday. Enjoy!

An Eight Sentence Smidgen of More Than Magic:

He combed his hand slowly out through her hair, watching its progress as if it were the most fascinating thing in the world. And she realized that she was leaning into his touch, following his fingers. Shivering. Melting.

It seemed so natural, so completely predictable that his fingers would stroke back to cup her face, that his thumb would stroke her cheekbone, that she would fall into those gray eyes and get lost.

And then he slanted his mouth across hers and she was lost. Something warm and effervescent bubbled through her, reaching all the way to her toes. When he cupped his hand around her nape beneath the crackling chaos of her hair and pulled her closer, deepening the kiss, sliding his tongue gently across her lips, she gasped.

MoreThanMagic72lgBook Description:

When DEA agent Nick McKenzie arrives undercover on Woodruff Mountain, the beautiful, edgy owner’s awkward attempts to scare him off tell him something’s afoot, and it’s not her secret patch of rare ginseng.

The last thing Grace Woodruff needs underfoot is a handsome, enigmatic writer recovering from a recent illness. Until an accidental touch unleashes a stunning mystical force and Grace senses the wrath of a malicious blight at the heart of the mountain. Now Grace must choose between her need to hide her gift from the world…and her desire to save Nick’s life.
