Synopsis: Warding the Crossing has always been Cayden Sinclair’s destiny. With her beloved Gran growing weaker, it’s time the little witch took her place. Juggling substantial curves for her frame and an inconvenient inability to control her power has always been a serious challenge. But not until discovering her fated Keeper is the extremely hot, tragically clean-cut insomniac who’s ignored her for months, does she truly fear failing her legacy.
Now that he’s finally on the road to the top with an offer from a big developer, Clint MacAllen can’t allow his struggling construction company to be threatened by a vicious nightmare, or his inexplicable attraction to a goth clerk working the graveyard shift at HandiMart—no matter how potent they are.
J. Milton Developments has its own agenda for Buchanan’s Crossing, and they’ll spill blood to get it.
Review: Cayden Sinclair is the last of the Buchanan line and destined to be the Warder of Buchanan’s Crossing once the mantle passes from her grandmother, Aileen. Cayden is a hereditary witch, but her magic has never been under her total control, and she has a unique familiar – a raven, Nevermore. Cayden has been searching for the Keeper, her mate, since her grandmother is getting weaker. Yet her destined Keeper, Clint MacAllen isn’t interested in her as she’s not his “type” physically and doesn’t want to have anything to do with witchcraft. He owns a green construction company, suffers from insomnia and migraines, and being drawn into a deal with J. Milton Developments. There are sinister forces who want possession of the Crossing and will let nothing stand in their way.
THE LEGACY OF BUCHANAN’S CROSSING is an intriguing paranormal romance. I liked Cayden’s style because she didn’t apologize for who and what she is and I loved Nevermore, her raven familiar. Cayden’s fear of failing at her birthright, taking over as the Warder, consumes her but it doesn’t break her. Clint, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to know his own mind. The story and characters kept my attention, but I do wish we got more background on the Crossing itself. Maybe there’ll be a prequel! I enjoyed the more natural progression of Cayden and Clint’s relationship, the magic of the Crossing, and the generations-old mystery. THE LEGACY OF BUCHANAN’S CROSSING is a very enjoyable story and I’d love to read more about Cayden!
