Meet Merlin’s Descendent

By Carolyn Spear

An interview with Ian Branson, chairman of the Syndicate’s Rules and Regulations on the Lawful Use of Magick and Innate Powers and hero of Sorcerer’s Legacy, conducted by Wiccan Haus yoga instructor Trixie.

Trixie: Thank you for joining me this evening, Chairman.
Ian: Certainly. And please, after what we’ve been through, call me Ian.
Trixie: Ian. Tell us how you are related to Merlin.
Ian: Merlin is a myth. Really a compilation of several real men. One of those men was a Welsh sorcerer named Myrrdin. I am his descendent.
Trixie: Let me ask you some of the questions on the list. I think Myron wrote them. I apologize in advance.
Ian: (Chuckles) Go ahead. I reserve the right to remain silent though.
Trixie: Fair enough. (Looks at paper and rolls eyes.) Okay, Tighty whities or boxers?
Ian: Boxers. Most of the time.
Trixie: Hobbies?
Ian: Yoga for flexibility, boxing for stress release, running for cardio. Oh, and my son just took up T-ball so I guess you can add that to the list.
Trixie: Favorite position?
Ian:  I beg your pardon?
Trixie: Sorry…
Ian: It’s fine. If you’re familiar with the Kama Sutra, I find the tigress and the cross positions pleasurable for my partner.
Trixie: (blushing) Sorry, Chairman. Ian. (Rustling the paper) Just a couple more. Favorite drink?
Ian: Irish breakfast tea or a nice wine.
Trixie: Favorite food?
Ian: I love a nice beef loin, medium rare, with roasted vegetables.
Trixie: Last one, I promise. Tell me about your last trip to Wiccan Haus.
Ian: (laughs) Like you don’t remember. But since I agreed… I came to Wiccan Haus to rediscover my balance. I had some anger issues which made me unable to control my psychic abilities. Either I was on or off. On, meaning I was open to everyone’s feelings, I was bombarded by emotions. Imagine being in an empty field during a tornado. Being hit by all manner of debris. That’s what it was like. So, I closed down my powers. I came here so I could get back to normal.
Trixie: Through yoga?
Ian: The Rowans arguably have the best yoga instructor.
Trixie: Flattery will get you everywhere. Thank you and I hope you’ll visit again soon.

Sorcerer’s Legacy

Librarian Rebecca Jones has always found solace in books. The death of her grandmother leaves her alone in the world. An inherited old Welsh scroll renews her desire to find the father she never knew. She hopes fairytale Wiccan Haus will yield the answers she needs.

Descendent of the inspiration for the Merlin legend, Ian Branson lives with the responsibility of protecting humans and paranormal beings. He takes an impromptu vacation with the Rowans of Wiccan Haus, seeking healing for his out of control psychic abilities.

As soon as Ian meets Becca, he feels the pull of his soulmate. Love has no place in his life but he cannot deny the peace only she can provide. Becca finds her Welsh knight in shining armor to translate her scroll but passion tempts her from her quest to find her father.

As their relationship blooms, Ian fears putting another loved one in jeopardy. A tryst isn’t enough but Ian’s charmed solution goes awry.  With his emotions into a tailspin, he is forced to sacrifice his pride and ask the formidable eldest Rowan for help.

Will Sarka’s magic reverse the sorcerer’s spell and will Becca accept Ian’s legacy and her own?
