Dee Fortune took her sisters and ran after their parents died from questionable causes. She's managed to escape their wicked Aunt Xan for years, but now Xan's found them. Can Dee keep them safe or should she stop worrying and give in to the love of her life who is a gift from Xan?

Although all of the sisters have their own special gifts, Mare knows that with the guidance her aunt could have given them, they would be powerful indeed. Or dead, if she believed Dee, and she's not sure she does.

Lizzie is the most powerful sister. She's working at turning straw into gold, but through lack of training her powers are creating dangerous changes in the universe. Xan has sent a handsome sorcerer to talk her into giving up her power to Xan.

I'm sure Crusie, Dreyer, and Stuart had fun writing this charming farce, but it's probably not as much fun for the reader who will want to stick with one sister instead of being bounced from one romance to another. It's still an enjoyable novel, but three books by three such talented authors would have been three times the fun.
