SUMMARY
The third and final installment of the Enchanted series -- a trio of trilogies by three amazing romance writers. These stories all have two things in common: magic and romance!

"All's Fair in Love, War and Demigods" by Wendy Sparrow:
Allie Mason isn't what Donovan Rowe was expecting from a demigoddess of love. Touchy-feely she is not. But just because she is able to drop him to the mat but doesn't mean he's right for her--she needs someone less battle-scarred and jaded. However, Allie has other ideas. While a matching site may have set them up, Allie is sure demigod of war Donovan is who she wants. He's not getting away without a fight and all's fair in love, war, and claiming your demigod.

"These Resting Bones" by Em Shotwell:
New Orleans college student Bradley Murphey works hard to blend into the background, which is easier said than done when you are descended from a cursed line of witches. After helping her sisters cast spells (with questionable results) Bradley would be happy to never work magic again, but when she accidentally kills a man she has no choice but to turn to her hottie best friend and her family's cursed magic for help. But every spell has a price, and sometimes it is best to let dead things rot…

"Destiny's Dark Light Part III" by Sara Dobie Bauer:
The love story of Cyan and Liam comes to its enchanted end. With the identity of the dreaded dark witch revealed, both Cyan and Liam must find ways to deal with the ramifications. War approaches at an ever-increasing pace. Dark witches and white will soon battle on the streets of Charleston. Still, Cyan remains focused on the man she's come to love. She is destined to protect Liam, but how can she keep him safe and save the world when her powers are barely under control?

ALL GOOD THINGS COME IN THREES

According to Wikipedia there's a connection between the number "3" and writing:

"The rule of three is a writing principle that suggests that a trio of events or characters is more humorous, satisfying, or effective than other numbers in execution of the story and engaging the reader. The reader or audience of this form of text is also thereby more likely to remember the information conveyed. This is because having three entities combines both brevity and rhythm with having the smallest amount of information to create a pattern. It makes the author or speaker appear knowledgeable while being both simple and catchy."

This book is part of has several things connected to this number:

THIRD book in the Enchanted Series

THREE authors writing THREE stories, one for each volume.
[Sara Dobie Bauer, Em Shotwell, Wendy Sparrow]

THREE volumes with Magic in its title with an increasing intensity
[Spark, Ember, Flame]; which also reflects the level of romantic passion of the stories being told.

I felt the stories in this collection gives its readers a wide-ranging array of dichotomic opposed comparisons, such as: love/hate, intimacy/distance, empathy/coldness; which magic playing an essential part with what's happening.

This causes these stories to have a decent level and wide spectrum of emotions as one reads them, which is why I've given this collection 5 STARS.
