The last thing he wanted was to fall for a witch...
Veterinarian Kat Ramsey hasn't a clue that she's a witch. Sure, she can read minds, and there's the whole "dimension-hopping" issue that she can't quite control, but Kat is determined to keep things normal. That is, until she accidentally hops into the Otherworld, and runs smack into Matthew Ryan―the seriously hot one-night stand from years ago who shoved her out of his dorm. Naked.
And there's the tiny matter of the curse she gave him.
May you never find satisfaction with another woman. Billionaire and former druid Matthew Ryan hasn't forgotten the curse, or the witch who gave it to him. Kat's unexpected return means the curse will finally be broken. Unfortunately, his libido has other ideas―like how to get her back into his bed one last time. But far more worrying is his suspicion that Kat is the seventh Pleiades witch. Because while he's turned his back on his druidic ways, he's still bound to protect the woman who made his life hell...
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Boy did I enjoy this Protecting His Witch. I usually like my PNR to be more about strong hairy shape shifters, dark and sexy vampires, or good old kinky demons…(or angels for that matter ;D), I have nothing against magic, it just not as… attention grabbing to me.
However, this book was excellent. It starts out a little confusing, like when you’re flipping through channels and you finally catch a film or series that seems interesting but you caught it 10 minutes in, so at first you’re kinda confused about what’s going on and who’s who. The first couple of chapters had me a little lost, I even went online to check if this was a follow up book from an ongoing series… When I confirmed it is the first (of many to come I hope) I just relaxed and got into it. And let me tell you it gets very good real fast.
With a mix of Celtic culture and Ancient Greek mythology, I found the storyline fresh and exciting.
Filled with action, magic, an anti-magic-fanatic-killer-secret-society, and a very steamy and hot destined-for-each-other couple, Protecting his Witch has everything I look for in a Paranormal book. It sets a great precedent for the coming installment in this new series, and I’m looking forward to the stories to come.
I was slightly dissatisfied by the lack of epilogue (I know I always complain about this, but what can I do, I’m a sucker for a good peek at the actual HEA) but I’m confident that I’ll get to see the couple in future plots.
This was a very engaging and fast reading book and I highly recommend to anyone who would enjoy a hot take charge druid protector alpha guy, a somewhat lost but persevering and very stubborn witch who doesn’t know what she really is and lots of hot, rip-my-clothes-off, can’t-take-my-hands-off-you-even-if-I-have-a-girlfriend, steamy sex from a destined couple.
