The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it's kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine's aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don't talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she's dead.

It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max.

This book shows another side from the run of the mill romance. Explores the rough side where some are hurt and damaged from life. Some good morals of story lines to take from and romance and love scene with out them dominating the story. Loved the narrator and enjoyed the book.

Loved the narraters. Good romance and drama.
Didn’t like two things. The repeating a word three times for dramatic effects all the time - irritating. Then the sex scenes dragged on with over describing each move that I was fast forward through then as got
bored.
