A Wood Nymph Novella

Abelia, a Boronda Forest Wood Nymph…
She came to Willow Bay to satisfy her curiosity of human life, and got more than she bargained for.

Jack, an archeologist bent on discovery…
He can't wait to leave Pennsylvania and return to his explorations in Australia, where life is filled with dingos and roos.

Danger abounds…
Human hunters stalk the enthralling Abelia, and Jack comes to her rescue. The hunters back off, but she suddenly vanishes, and he's left confused as he returns home to the rugged Outback.

They’ll risk it all…
When Abelia magically appears in Jack's kitchen, she must divulge who and what she really is and risk the mythic people's secret for his help to return home. Meanwhile he risks his heart in convincing her to stay.

My Review:
Abelia is quite brave for leaving the protection of the Boronda Forest to visit a human town. She's very curious after listening to Patience talk about Willow Bay.
Abelia likes looking at all the shops and their wares, when she passes a bar and is noticed by some men. Trying to get away from them, she bumps into a handsome man who aides her in escaping the men. The men are hunters of the inhabitants of Boronda and don't give up easily.

His stay in Willow Bay is almost up and Jack is anxious to get back to his home is Austraila to continue his archeologist discoveries. A gorgeous woman literally runs right into him, she looks frightened. Ever the gentleman, Jack stays with Abelia.
When she suddenly disappears, Jack is very surprised. He gets on a plane and heads home. I can only imagine how surprised Jack was when Abelia disappears. I think Abelia has lived a very protective life in Boronda and seems naïve. I liked Abelia a lot, she was just curious after all she had heard from Patience. I admired her bravery when she and Jack encountered danger in his house. I also liked Jack, he helped rescue a damsel in distress. There are lots of surprises in store for both Abelia and Jack. Will they be able to handle them?

Portals of Oz is a quick read that has adventure, danger, excitement, and romance. Sheri has infused wit and humor, romance and passion into a short story. This is a fun book and I hope there will be more like it.
