Marcie’s adventures continue in Pranic, Pregnant, and Petrified. Our intrepid heroine is stunned to learn that she’s pregnant. The ramifications of that fact are terrifying. What would Maddock do if he learned he was the child’s father? How would the rest of the world react?
If that was her only problem, she might have been able to cope, but Janet, Dan’s mother and a powerful witch, suspects that Marcie isn’t just a vampire and insists on putting her through a test. Opie is getting petulant. Kenisha is grief stricken, and Dan…Well, Dan is just as odd as Marcie has always suspected. Just what she needed, to fall in love with a guy who isn’t just a guy.
Picture this: a handsome, wealthy man from an influential family who has done nothing with his life except shame himself, indulge in hedonistic pursuits, and been such a rake that even the Queen had to upbraid him. The idiot (which is not giving anything away; he considers himself an idiot) goes off to play soldier in the American Civil War because it seems like a lark. What’s the end result of his stupidity? The Rake of London is now a blind recluse.
Now add in a woman who’s done her own share scandalous things (not really, but she likes to think her split skirt is the height of brazenness). For most of her life she’s been the guardian of her brother, Neville, who traipsed off to war with the Rake of London. Only he hasn’t returned.
Dalton MacIain refuses to take any responsibility for the missing Neville. Miranda Todd refuses to go away just because he’s told her to.
One thinks the other is a prude. One thinks the other is a hopeless wastrel. The problem is, they’re more alike than different and each truly needs the other.
The path to true love, however, was not especially easy for Dalton and Miranda.
