Love and danger intertwine
AS CHILDREN THEY PLAYED GAMES OF MYTH AND MAGIC…
Veronica Kent fell in love with Caith Breckwood when they were children. As a teenager, she was certain he was the man she was destined to marry. But a traumatic event from Caith’s past led him to fear a future together. He left Veronica, hoping to save her from a terrible fate. Twelve years later, Caith, now a P.I., is hired to investigate bizarre incidents at the secluded retreat Veronica manages. Returning to his hometown, Caith is forced to face his nightmares—and his feelings for the woman he’s always loved.
THEN ONE DAY THE MONSTERS BECAME REAL.
After the callous way Caith broke her heart, Veronica isn’t thrilled to see him again. But strange occurrences have taken a dangerous toll on business at Stone Willow Lodge. Forced to work together, Veronica discovers it isn’t ghostly apparitions that frighten her, but her passion for a man she has never forgotten. Or forgiven. Can two people with a tarnished past unearth a magical future?
What reviewers and readers are saying about MYTH AND MAGIC:
“My daughter recommended this book to me because she knows I love a good mystery. This book really did suit my taste. The characters were well-developed and I was drawn into their world so much so that when I finished the book, I felt like I had lost some friends. I miss them. This author is now on my radar and I’ll definitely check out more of her books.”

“It’s no coincidence that “Mae Clair” rhymes with “great flair”, because this author clearly had a great flair for description and drama.
Mae Clair has hit her stride with this romantic suspense novel set at a haunted hotel at Halloween time. A pro at setting mood, Clair brought me right into her world. Sights, smells, character feelings, it was all there as odd things begin happening at Stone Willow Lodge and manager Veronica must get to the bottom of it or else see the Lodge permanently closed.
…Every character is given realistic problems they must overcome. Even the secondary characters are fleshed-out and complex in all the right ways. Once the book was done, I had a hard time not thinking about the mystery presented and the lovable characters.
…This one is a keeper for me. I’ve already recommended it to my friends and family and can’t wait to talk about it with them!
If you like mood-setting description, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and swoon-worthy romance, You Gotta Read Mae Clair’s Myth and Magic.”

“WOW!! What an amazing book! There are not a lot of books that just grab me like Mae Clair’s Myth and Magic did. It was everything a book should be.
Myth and Magic had drama, suspense, betrayal, denial, family dynamics, small town interactions, neighborhood grudges, redemption, forgiveness, love, passion and a wonderful mystery.
…Myth and Magic is like a black and white film noire movie.. Rich in texture and nuance. The romance builds and you can almost see the fog slowly start to rise, covering the story in a veil of well myth and magic.. Just brilliant.
…Shauni, Tea & Book Reviews
“I feel so lucky to have received this ARC for review. It was such a brilliant change to other novels I have read lately.
The balance of all “ingredients” for a good romance novel was near perfection. There was enough “steam” between the leads, without being overwhelming. The mystery was present and made me wonder until the last pages where to look for the Responsible. I even admit I only got parts of them right in my guessing. The dialogues between the characters were witty, serious and sexy (depending :-D). And all leads were developed deep enough to feel believable.
The background of the story and where the characters “came” from was explained thoroughly, so there were absolutely no holes in the story and nothing the reader could not understand.”
…Jeri Ryan, Jeri’s Book Attic Reviews
“Mae Clair can spin a tale of intrigue mystery and romance with the ease of a juggler with several balls in the air, bringing it all home and packaging it up in one beautifully wrapped package! With high energy, emotion and mystery, Myth and Magic will span years of pain, loss and grief with characters that come alive on the pages and scenes that will play in vivid colors in your mind. Hang tight to YOUR emotions, grab your specter detector, and enjoy the ride. Mae Clair is in the driver’s seat, once again!”
…Dii, Tome Tender Book Reviews
“A romantic suspense set in a small town in Pennsylvania, Myth and Magic by Mae Clair is filled with colorful characters, family drama and an engaging mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. Good character development, plenty of physical action and emotional angst keep you turning the pages to discover what is really taking place at Stone Willow Lodge.
