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

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.

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
