Synopsis:

Banish the demon, stop the prophecy, and do not fall in love. Easy, right? Yeah, not so much.

Mina Donovan is a woman of many talents. Fire elemental, psychic, Legacy witch, magical asset for an FBI paranormal task force…she does it all. Her latest struggle? Not crushing on her sexy best friend. Logically, she knows they can’t be together. Too bad her heart has never bothered with logic.

The friend zone is the last place pyro expert Josh wants to be with Mina. Not that he has any choice in the matter. A witch hunter falling for a witch? Not smart. He’ll just have to learn to ignore his attraction to the gorgeous woman who already owns so much of his heart.

If Mina and Josh have any hope of finding their way to happily ever after, they’ll have to banish an all-powerful demon and take down an evil magical organization. Oh, and they’ll also have to figure out how to stop the prophecy that warns a dragon will consume Mina.

It’ll take more than magic to fix this supernatural dilemma

A witch hunter who’d fallen for a witch.

There was no spell in the world to unravel that level of stupid.

“Can I kiss you?” The question came out on a breath, so soft she wasn’t sure he’d hear it with the fans humming as steadily as her powers on a Josh high.

*She poured seven hundred days of anticipation into this first kiss.

Excerpt

The staked witch burst into flames. Mina swore and jumped clear of the blaze. By the powers, she’d lit the wrong target with her elemental magic.

Again.

At least it’d only been a mannequin.

The camera above the door blinked a steady red, a judgment of her failure. Her boss could be watching right now. Or worse—her sisters.

Embarrassment sent hot tingles across her skin, and her pulse thudded louder in her ears than the massive fan above. Why couldn’t she control her powers?

If this had been one of her video games, she’d wield her magic with precision worthy of a stupendous title. Something inspiring. Something enviable. Something that would make her, Mina Donovan, legendary.

Second spare to the heir of a ruling witch family? Yeah, not so much.

Reality sucked in every supernatural way. Or at least it had these last few weeks.

Her actual targets—giant cotton balls tacked to a wall across the room—mocked her with their bright white while the mannequin and its formerly Mean-Girls-esque you-can’t-sit-with-us designer threads burned like a tiki torch.

“You missed.” Of course her district attorney sister picked that moment to walk into the room. Delia was everything Mina wasn’t—accomplished, distinguished, polished. Never mind how her sister’s blue-eyed, blonde-haired dressed-to-the-elevens flawlessness compared to her own frizzy-curled, height-deprived, rolled-out-of-bed look. “Unless you’re practicing to light one of us up like a witchy sparkler?”

“Hardly.” Being recruited to a secret FBI task force right after college had seemed cool. But it should’ve come with a neon warning: “All loved ones may be collateral damage.” Last night, her oldest sister and baby niece had almost died. Not her fault entirely, but that didn’t ease her guilt. Or help her get a grip on her powers. The now flaming mannequin was proof of that. “What happened to safety cones and boring bulls-eyes for training? Whose idea was it to put humanish targets in here anyway?”

“The boss’s. A13 wanted to test your aim so you won’t torch us out in the field. After this little demonstration, I’ll be sure to stay out of the line of—”

            “Don’t say it.” Mina jabbed the button for the secondary exhaust system to blast out her know-it-all sister’s opinions as much as smoke. If she’d heard one bad fire joke, she’d heard them all from her snarky sisters.

The roar of the combined fans wasn’t enough to shut Delia up. “Good thing this place is retrofitted for magical elements training. One wrong spark in LA, and the whole city burns.”

Not the reminder Mina needed right now. She changed the subject. “Who decided on the witch hat and the giant demon dummy?” Red-sequined horns sparkled in the light from the fire.

“My fiancé has a sick sense of humor. You started that little inferno. You going to put it out?”

“Yes.” She hoped. But when she pulsed a thread of magic toward the mannequin, the flames shot higher than its pointed hat.

“Did you mean to make the fire worse?”

“Yep.”

Delia’s yeah-right look was a speed dial straight to Mina’s self-doubt.

If the place had been made of anything but concrete, the fire would’ve raced across the room taking everything out. As it was, black circles spread in a messy scrawl on the ceiling.

Mina closed her eyes. The orange glow burned behind her lids, a flashing pyrotechnics show that didn’t help her maxed-out stress levels. With a deep breath, she imagined darkness where there was light. When she dared a peek, the fire was gone. Thank the powers.

“Quick work.” Delia sounded almost impressed. “Maybe we should race sometime.”

“Right, except if you’d used your air element, we’d both be unconscious. Me from oxygen deprivation and you from magic drain.” Petty, but true.

Delia’s powers would have her blonde butt on the floor within seconds—the price of her whirlwind-slinging element. Then the designer diva would be pissed off that she’d gotten soot on her suit. The tornado-tosser looked anything but amused. “Okay, super witch.” Which sounded like a not-so-subtle reference to another word ending in –itch. This was big sister bossiness at its worst. “Care to hit any of the real targets now? I thought you’d been working on this during your training sessions.”

 “Don’t you have something better to do? Like making out with your fiancé? Since that’s all I see you doing these days when you’re training.” Mina wiggled her fingers in air quotes with the last word.

“Jealous?”

“Nope.” She totally was. Legacy daughters—those witches born to rule the witch Senate—were traditionally forced into arranged matches for powerful bloodlines and big bank accounts. But not her sisters. No. They’d each risen above that to find true freaking love. “So why don’t you get back to your guy instead of interrupting me?”

“Don’t be such a brat. I was just checking on you.”

Because Mina was the screw-up baby sister. Not as bad as their brother, but he’d set the bar low. As in conspiring with the Revelare, a demon-led organization looking to overthrow the witch Senate—that kind of low. “I can do this by myself.”

And on the Dark Side is..

darkglitter - And on the Dark Side is.. Dark Glitter
The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club
CM Stunich
Paranormal Werewolves & Shifters Romance, Paranormal Romance
Independently published (14 Feb. 2019)
Independently published (14 Feb. 2019)
four star - And on the Dark Side is..

Ciarah O’Rourke was born into torture.A human spirit reincarnated in the body of an ancient fae goddess, she’s spent the last five years in iron shackles, her mind poisoned with magic for secrets she doesn’t know.

Waking up in a dirty alley with no memory of her escape, Ciarah finds herself in the hands of The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club--a ruthless and violent group of bikers with faerie blood in their veins.

Arlo. Reece. Killian.

Three men drenched in death, sin, and old magic.

From their clubhouse in the middle of the Louisiana bayou, they’ll offer Ciarah the keys to unlock her memories and control the veil between worlds. But even her knights can’t erase the twisted scars that remind her they aren’t the only ones who hunt.

When The Wild Hunt rides, the souls of the dead join their parade.All that’s missing now is their queen.

DARK GLITTER is the first of three books in THE WILD HUNT MOTORCYCLE CLUB series, a full-length reverse harem novel with dark faeries, werewolves, goddesses, voodoo magic, steamy scenes, graphic violence, cursing, and a supernatural motorcycle club

La caza salvaje de Od%C3%ADn%2C por Peter Nicolai Arbo - And on the Dark Side is..

This is a reverse harem story.

300px Gypsy Joker Protest Run 2 - And on the Dark Side is..

The Wild Hunt rides – after a hiatus of over 100 years and they are now in New Orleans and disguised as a motorcycle club! Who knew? Really badass, tattoos and all. As they point out, horned horses would now look very strange riding around the town…

So what is the Wild Hunt? Well it all depends on who you read. It is a Northern European myth whereby a group of hunters chase –

you; or something unseen..;

can consist of dogs, riders, elves, fairies, demon horses, souls from Hell or something else;

and usually presages a really bad event happening to you or the world.

See Grimm or other myths depending on the country or mythology.

This is an interesting story idea about the Keeper of the Veil (between worlds) and her connection to the Wild Hunt and how her magic is enhanced.

The style is fluid and using the different characters to tell the story at points I found useful to understanding the back story.

What happens in Vegas: Series Review

Dark Ink Tattoo
Dark Ink Tattoo

(1 Aug. 2016 -7)
KU
four star - What happens in Vegas: Series Review

Jack's back in this new installment of Dark Ink Tattoo! No good deed goes unpunished -- and doubly so if you're already dead.

After the events of book 4, Jack thought he'd finally earned himself a break -- or at least a few fun nights -- but now that his Mistress is dead Maya needs help holding the club against other vampire gangs, he's got a bloodslave following him around like a puppy, a sacred warrior is hunting him down for his part in her partner's murder, Paco's going to become a vampire in three nights, Francesca won't let him forget he owes her, Dark Ink staff are about to riot, and the perpetual temptation of Zach still lives next door.

If you enjoyed the prior Dark Ink Tattoo books, you will continue to love the action and heat of this one -- and if you haven't read the first four, this book is a good place to start.

This is a series of box sets from KU that total up to 15 books – and I read them all in sequence!!!

Set in Las Vegas, in a seedy area, where the tourists come for an experience which often ends up being a tattoo. Each book tells the story of a different member of staff starting with the owner who sets up the first 24/7 tattoo parlour and who employs supernaturals of all varieties from the vampire who takes the night shift, to shifters to magic users and more… and sex is consensual, often rough and gender irrelevant.

The stories tend to be complicated, full of fights and difficult relationships from ex’s to current partners. There are nightclubs and bars and parties and motorcycle gangs. So, don’t expect a set of light and frothy stories – these are dark as the tattoos that are illustrated in the text. But somehow compulsive reading. Oh and nice illustrations too.

When the Swamp calls

Blackwater - When the Swamp calls Black Water Magic
Leslie Scott
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
Leslie Scott Fantasy
Publication date: January 12th 2021
three star - When the Swamp calls

Teagan Blackwater’s biggest problem used to be hiding her relationship with a demi-demon from her grandmother, Nola, the most powerful witch in all of Florida.

When Nola is murdered, Teagan learns how insignificant her secret really was. And how rare it is she only had the one. Firewater Springs is a small town, and every one of its residents seems to have secrets of their own. Including the friendly cop Teagan had a crush on in high school and the Demi-demon she’s been sleeping with.

But the person with the most secrets was Nola herself, and Teagan needs to unravel them to break a curse and solve Nola’s murder. It’s no secret Teagan doesn’t feel up to the task, but she is the new Swamp Witch of Firewater Springs, so what choice does she have? Everyone is counting on her.

No pressure.

This is a magic tale with a difference as the magic is ‘white’ but the power comes from the swamp and thus can be called a little contaminated perhaps.

As the story begins, we have a witch coming into her power and not yet fully trained. So far, so trope.

We have a lover who is a bad boy – in this case half demon and member of a motorcycle club. 2 dips into the trope. But nonetheless, very helpful to our witch. We also have a really good friend who helps with the magic. Sometimes this is a girl, but in this case a gay friend. Again we see trope.

So, whilst the setting is unusual and we have a Nile crocodile lurking around and a magic room behaving as a TARDIS, the trope is fully formed. The writing is quite nice but the storyline about finding out who killed Grandma and another set of ‘bad’ witches etc and her being a Protector, all play into a trope. Which is unfortunate as this could have been a good series to follow. Sadly, I will not be reading more.

Winter is going? Book Blitz

Wynter
(Silver Skates, #1)
Mia Harlan
Adult, Comedy, Paranormal, Romance
January 18th 2021

When a pair of magical skates helps me find my fated mates, the last thing I expect is to get rejected, betrayed, and framed for a crime I didn’t commit.

I moved to Silver Springs to escape my past. Fell in love with the small supernatural town. Made friends with its quirky residents. Even got my dream job.

But just when life’s finally looking up, disaster strikes. The cleaning company I work for falls under threat, and I’m framed for a crime I didn’t commit.

Then, I find my fated mates:

  • A shifter hockey player who knows how to handle his stick.
  • A sweet journalist who shifts into a block of ice but is oh so hot.
  • And a mage detective who already broke my heart once.

This should be the happiest time in my life, but my mates reject me, one by one.

As the new life I built starts to crumble around me, can I work things out with my mates and catch whoever framed me? Or will I end up broken-hearted, alone, and behind bars? Because I may be the best magical maid in town, but my life is one mess no spells in the world can fix.

Excerpt 1:

“I thought I’d test out the rink,” I tell Hockey Hottie—who I really can’t keep calling that, even just in my head. Not unless I want to risk blurting it aloud. “I’m Zoelle Wynter. Zoe for short.”

“Wynter, eh?” He lets out a deep, throaty chuckle that I can feel right down to my toes.

Then he extends one large hand, palm up. For a second, I think he wants me to cross the distance between us to shake it. But then he looks up at the sky and watches as the snowflakes drift down onto his skin. They melt against his bare palm and suddenly, I want to melt against his palm, too. To feel his hands all over me. To see what those long fingers of his can do.

I don’t think I’ve ever had such a strong reaction to a man. Not at first sight. I’ve had one-night stands before, but I’ve never wanted to strip a man naked outdoors, in the dead of winter. Or wondered if a hockey player might want to do any other type of scoring on the ice.

“Leaf,” he calls out.

“What?” I stare up at him, wondering if I just zoned out on half of what he was saying. Why else would he be talking about leaves? Unless he means the Maple Leafs? But why even bring up a human hockey team, when as far as the NHL is concerned, supe teams—and supe players—do not exist?

“My name.” He rewards me with a throaty chuckle. “Scottish mother. Jewish father.”

“And they called you Leaf?”

“Leith, with a TH.” He grins as he spells it out for me. “It actually means wet. So nothing to do with leaves.”

“Wet,” I repeat and swallow hard.

Leith rewards me with a knowing grin. One that has my body reacting in… well… the way his name would entail.
