He can give her satisfaction…if he can survive her kiss.

Magical Sisters, Book 1

Allie Tristan’s older sisters get to have sex. She’s not allowed—not until she learns to control the ravenous appetite of her emerging succubus powers. Till then, she’s resigned to her sisters watching her every move, poised to intervene before her kiss drains a man of his life force.

There’s something about local bar owner Tom Halloran, though, that tempts her to sneak away to have another taste of their deliciously electric connection.

Love and marriage are not in Tom’s plans. Occasional hot sex with a willing partner, when his busy life allows it? Definitely on the menu. Yet Allie nails him to the wall with her smokin’ hot body, innocent blue eyes…and drugging kisses that leave him more than just weak in the knees. For the first time in his life, he pictures a woman in his life long-term, not just for one night.

Along with hunger for raw sex, fear claws at Allie’s soul. Giving in to her raging need will kill him. Which leaves her only one choice: risk everything to keep their love alive—or die trying.

Magical Sex is the first book of Beverly Rae’s Magical Sisters series. I love the world she has created here, a mix of normal folk and magical beings.

Allie Tristan is frustrated. She has to watch as her older sisters have all the fun. As a fledgling succubus, she has no idea how to control her emerging powers, and the one person who could have helped with it, her mother, was killed in an accident. All Allie has are her two older sisters, and they watch her like a hawk.

When she meets local bar owner Tom Halloran, she is drawn to him like a magnet. Tom has no thoughts of any happy ever after, but Allie brings out something in him he never felt before. Still, Allie can’t be trusted alone with him, for fear that she will drain the life out of him with her kiss. Can her sisters help her learn to control her powerful urges, or is Allie destined to be alone forever? Is Tom willing to be with Allie, once he learns what the dangers are? Can they all find a way to make a happy ever after happen for Allie and Tom?

The characters in Magical Sex are well crafted and each is unique. The three sisters, Hillary, Meg and Allie, each carry a different sort of magic, and this book is about the youngest sister, Allie, a succubus like their mother. I enjoyed watching as they tried so many ways to help Allie while protecting the men in town from her powers.

Allie is just adorable. She knows what she is, and she wants what her sister has: a healthy sex life. She knows that can’t happen until she learns control, but she has no one to teach her what to do. I liked watching the ways Allie came up with to escape her sisters’ scrutiny, and the tricks she came up with to try and ease her tensions. I love the concept of a virgin succubus, and it is well done here.

Tom Halloran is strong, handsome and successful, and very much the bachelor. I liked his honesty and his determination, and his self-confidence. When Allie explodes into his life, he is lost and doesn’t understand what makes her different, but he does know he wants a life with her. The things he has to do to be with her are fun to watch, and there is a lot of humor in this story.

There are a couple of surprising twists in this story of magic and passion, and one was a big one, about the person who could hold the secret to helping Allie and Tom be together for their happy ever after.

This is a terrific introduction to these three magical sisters, and I look forward to reading Meg’s and Hillary’s stories in the future. Do Allie and Tom get past the problem and get their happy ever after? Read Magical Sex and learn the whole story.
