Sprinkled with love scenes, magical moments, danger, mystery, surprise, The Sealed Door is the first book in the series of four where we hear the voice of other characters besides Chloe. The Seven Spell Saga takes a different turn.

In this fourth book of The Seven Spell Saga, The Sealed Door, we find Chloe McGarry still in love with both Oliver Tarrant and Tristan Dearing.

The three have a friendship, and deep connection after having a few startling adventures together.

Both Oliver and Tristan love her too.

The Sealed Door sees the relationship between Oliver and Chloe become very serious and yet she is still unable to choose between him and Tristan. Oliver suddenly realizes she will never choose between them, will it change his feelings for her?

 

{ We stood close together near the window and looked out at the garden, there were leaves everywhere, blown from the trees. I realized the trees that had shielded one side of the garden from the lane were almost bare, it was definitely fall. Oliver put his cup down on the table and came back to me taking my hand and turning me to him, he started to kiss me. I kissed him back and held him, I could trace his backbone through his cotton shirt, and I moved my hands up to his face and held him as I kissed him. He was so lovely, and I loved him dearly. I thought as I kissed him, how much I would like to make love to him, with him, why not, what if I lost him again, and I hadn’t ever felt that. I wanted right then to make love to him so that I would always have that in my heart no matter what.}

 

Chloe finds herself also taking her relationship with Tristan to a new level.

In this book, The Seven Spell Saga gets steamy.

Since she is unable to choose will someone else do it for her?

 

{ I realized someone was next to me and turned quickly to see Tristan, “Chloe what’s happening, I saw you come out here and you seem to have been gone for a long time so I came to check if you are ok”.

I smiled at him, “I’m fine Tristan I just had to call mom back, my gran is sick and she is staying in California for another two weeks”.

He looked concerned, “Oh no how sick? I hope she will be ok”.

“She will be its flu and asthma, so it’s not desperate but she has to take care, that’s all, thanks for asking,” I told him as he slipped his arms around me and drew me close to him. He felt warm and I shivered suddenly as I noticed how cold I was, he hugged me. “Chloe you’re freezing come back into the café”.

Instead, I kissed him and he held my head to his as we just kept kissing each other. He stepped back and smiled, “We better go in there before someone else comes along to check on you or both of us”.

We held hands until we were almost in the main body of the café when by mutual consent we let go and walked side by side.}

 

As everyday life goes on, we hear from Oliver and Tristan. Oliver describes his experiences and we find out more about how he feels.

The Sealed Door has some interesting revelations about Tristan’s past. He finds himself feeling emotions he never expected to feel. He surprises his friends by his actions; this is not the Tristan we have come to know.

 

When Tristan asks the archaeology team to open the sealed door found in a tunnel below his house, where Chloe lives, a surprise awaits him.

Trouble is on the horizon from a surprising source. Tristan, Chloe and Oliver think they have encountered enough magic to have grown used to it by now, but they find this latest brush with witchcraft almost too much to bear.

Who is Lily and better still who is Anna?

When yet another experience from the past catches up with Tristan, the only thing that will fix things is yet another time travel adventure.

 


Excerpt

He had walked to the French door and was now standing looking out at the garden with his hands in his pockets he looked thoughtful.
“Why don’t I know about that tunnel, I must have passed the sealed door behind one of the tapestries back in the eleven hundreds, just as I did the secret box in the tunnel? Weird stuff, don’t you think?” he had turned to me as I reached him.
“I seem to have been going around with my eyes closed back then, and er, I think I’ve said that before” he laughed. I looked at him and smiled a little, “You weren’t looking for secrets then; you know just living your life as a young person, unaware of the intrigue that was going on or whatever”.
He took my hands and put them against his chest “Chloe, you always comfort me, you never see any fault in me, but I was spoilt back then, maybe arrogant too, that’s why I crossed the river where I did. I just assumed I would be safe, that the ice would be just the way it always was; I was untouchable.”
He started to laugh again, “The good freezing I got cured me of that notion”. I put my hands up around his face and kissed him quickly, “Do you have to go back to work like you told Don?”
He smiled, “I do in fact, but I can be convinced to have coffee and cuddle up to you for a while longer”.
“Maybe I could just come up to the greenhouses with you; it would be nice to watch you work for a while”.
“Would it?” he looked surprised.
“Oh yes” I replied, I just didn’t want to be apart from him right then.
“What about Don and company?” he wanted me with him, I could tell from his expression.
“I’ll just go and tell them I have to go out for while and ask when they plan to leave, if they are anything like last time, it will be about seven tonight”.
I left him in the kitchen and scooted down to see Don, or Lily, whoever was available. Lily was alone in the drawing room; the men must be down in the tunnel. As I got close, I could see them on her computer screen, they were working on the sealed door in the tunnel. Already having made a column shaped opening and a carefully placed stack of stones was evident on the floor of the tunnel.
“Lily, I need to go out for a while, when are you planning on leaving?”
She turned to me, “About six I think, is that ok?”
I was nodding, “Sure, I will only be a couple of hours at the most and my brother Steven may come home soon, please help yourselves to tea, coffee, and there are cakes, biscuits and stuff in the fridge if you want anything”.
I smiled and left her going quickly back to Tristan, I took his hand, and we went out to the old truck he was using that day.
It was easy to kiss his cheek through the open window, as he was about to close the truck door, when I had gotten into the passenger side. He sighed and smiled as he closed the door. When he was in the driver side, he leaned over and kissed me “I seem to be unable to stop kissing you today, but then you are kissing me back,” he said smiling again as he let go of me and started the engine. I just grinned and looked out of the window.
Tristan parked in the end of the Dearing house car park telling me,
“The tiny parking space by the greenhouse is already full, and Jo has the trailer in there today in order to load the conifer order. So we will walk from here”. He was still smiling.
I got out of the truck, but Tristan came around to me and put his arm around my shoulders as we walked over to the greenhouses. It was just far enough for us to discuss the new tunnel-chamber some more
“Tristan I can’t help feeling that tunnel-chamber will hold some mystery since you know nothing of it”. I said, and he inclined his head to me, and slowing down hugged me a little closer, “Maybe it will, but at least on first glance there is no giant portrait of my father’s secret love interest”. He kissed my temple and I smiled, “That’s true”.
