Cute short story... Because it was short it also felt a bit rushed in places and like things came together a little too neatly and easily!

Minna Westerfield is a wizard, but she isn't allowed to act on it. Her father, Wynn Westerfield, had his career as a dragon jockey ended by a wizard.

While her father is away at a dragon convention, she finds a stranger on her doorstep. It turns out Evan Valentine isn't a random stranger like she originally thought, but is actually a wizard -- an apprentice for

I love magic & wizards and stories about magic & wizards ! In this story, there is a ghostly butler, an enchanted castle, a kaleidoscopic picturesque train, a dragon race, an alternate reality, and, of course, young love. But most importantly, this story is about forgiveness and fulfilling your dreams.

The author provided me a copy of this sweet story in return for an honest review. I always look forward to reading her books !

MINNA & THE VALENTINE is an incredible blend of magic, fantasy, and romance! While the story revolves around wizardry, Ms. Rogers created two very real, down-to-earth characters -- Minna Westerfield and Evan Valentine, and of course, a loveable pup named Beast who is an endearing addition to the mix. Minna and Evan are thrown together to fix the damage caused by a wayward wizard. Conflict arises between them, but so does attraction. Minna and Evan put a lot on the line to make the world righ ...more

Such a romantic story. Goes to show that two people can really share an electric connection.

Minna and Evan’s relationship sparked with electricity right from their very first meeting.
I loved how Rogers brought Minna and Evan together, it was beautiful. Thaddeus is certainly a wise wizard especially when it comes to love.

However short this was I enjoyed every moment especially when the sparks flew!

I’d love to learn more about both Evan and Minna before they first met. It would be interesting t
Ms Rogers uses her excellent writing skills again to create another wonderful adventure. Wizards, racing dragons, an alternative reality full of revelations - and a cute puppy called Beast.

This is a warm and sweet short story about two young wizards who overcome their different backgrounds to stop a bad wizard from causing further mayhem. Full of emotion, imaginative wizardry description and adventure, Minna & The Valentine makes for a relaxing read that leaves you with a smile on your face.
