Spellbound by Kathleen Nance Madeline Fairbanks is a talented dancer, but has suffered from debilitating stage fright ever since her childhood. Her current job in public relations is a torment to her because of her fear of performing in public; if she doesn't solve the problem soon, she's going to lose her job. To make her life more complicated, she has agreed to housesit for her eccentric friend who warns her that there will be a houseguest to look after. The houseguest turns out to be a handsome djinn -- and not just any djinn. Zayne is magical, of course, but he certainly doesn't grant wishes or live in a lamp. He is also the Minstrel of Kaf -- his music holds his world together. And he is on Earth to find his mate, who must be a fantastic singer, to complement his music. Unfortunately, Madeline is tone deaf. Still, sparks fly whenever they are together and Zayne may be the one person that can help Madeline solve the mystery of her mother's strange illness and her father's disappearance.

Kathleen Nance enthralls once again in this magical, sexy romance. The world of the djinn, Kaf, is a fascinating place, one that readers are sure to want to see more of. But the author makes New Orleans seem like a magical place, as well. The interactions between Zayne and Madeline are very well-written. This is the perfect book for lovers of fantasy romance.
