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 โ€œdimension-hoppingโ€ 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 Ryanโ€“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 ideasโ€“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…

My Review:
I received a review copy of the second book in this series, and then I saw a post the author put up about the first book being on sale so I snapped up a copy and got sucked right in.

Kat has no clue that she is a powerful witch, one of the seven Pleiade witches whom the Druids have sworn to protect. She has been stumbling in and out of Matt Ryan’s life for years, and they have made a lasting impression on each other. While he hurt her in the past, Kat can’t get him out of her head, and no other man seems to match up.

I loved their romance, and it was full of pushing and pulling, angst and misunderstanding, and plenty of lust-filled moments. Perfect. However, I did feel that the romance overshadowed the rest of the plot and I would have liked more insight into the paranormal world. What we were shown was really intriguing, and I hope that the author develops this as the series progresses. Also, did I mention how much I love the dimension-hopping aspect? Love, love, love it.

The confirmation ceremony at the end was a bit anti-climactic, and I never really felt the danger that Kat and the other witches were supposedly in. That said it didn’t dent my enjoyment of this book at all.

In the main the writing is solid, character development is good, and the pacing is consistent.

If you enjoy well-written paranormal romance then you should definitely check out this series.
