A spell that tore three sisters apart is broken four hundred years later, when the magic in their blood reunites them. Now, one of them will discover her gift—and reignite a love long thought lost…

Flame-haired Becca Carstairs was born to be a veterinarian. Since childhood, her affinity for animals has been special, and her healing touch nothing short of magic. But only Becca knows the truth—that she alone can hear the creatures’ voices. She’s always trusted her sixth sense… until a string of missing pets, an attempted murder, and a face from her past converge into one explosive mystery, with her at its center.

Is haunted Owen McAllister, the boy who broke her heart ten years ago, related to the sinister crimes that have peaceful Three Harbors, Wisconsin, on its guard? Or is his reappearance part of the answer to questions that have troubled her all her life? As Becca delves into her strange heritage, she’ll have to fight for her life… and the man she will always love.

Heat of the Moment by Lori Handeland

Heat of the Moment (Sisters of the Craft, #2)Triplet girls, sent far into a time where no one believes in witches anymore, three contemporary women, unknown to each other, must meet, join as sisters and defeat evil. Lori Handeland’s Heat of the Moment uncovers the tale of Becca, a small town veterinarian who has a gift with animals. Not that she would tell anyone about it, small towns, big gossips, small minds. What would people say?

Owen left Becca and his tainted life behind to become a Marine, where he was judged as a soldier and a man, instead of the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. And he broke Becca’s heart by running off suddenly without a word. He said he loved her, but he left anyway, a question that has tormented Becca for years. Now he’s back, a war hero, with his canine partner, injured both physically and emotionally. Can Becca survive round two of all things Owen?
Something dark is happening, brutal animal tortures and ritualistic murders, and no one has a clue as to what is going on. Is someone trying to bring Becca’s powers out into the open? Confused, Becca’s talent will dig up some amazing clues as to what is going on and her true past will be revealed. Is she ready?

Edgy, intense and detailed, once again, Lori Handeland brings her talent into the forefront as a gifted story-teller who knows how to package her tales into riveting urban fantasy with a side of romantic intrigue. Fast-paced, full of everything required for magnetic reading that casts its own spell over each reader, this one will grab at your heart, while it feeds your need for fantasy and the magic of books!

I received an ARC edition from St. Martin's Press in exchange for my honest review.
