Hey all, I have been seriously slacking in the last couple of months, but because of the wonderful Melanie, my reviews are getting put up. Anywho. I am here today to tell you about this wonderful author who writes these super cool books that I think everyone should read. I met her at IBF, which I am in the process of writing reviews for.
I have read the first one, here is the review. I have the second one, just not read yet. Let’s just say I got a lot of books at IBF.
Winter Magic (The Thorne Witches Book 3)
Winter Magic is the third exciting installment in the Thorne Witches series. If you like paranormal romance, fast-paced action and suspense along with witty, engaging characters, order this edition today!
Feeling hurt and more than a little betrayed, Winter “Winnie” Thorne decides it would be best for her new lover to forget their relationship ever happened. In an impulsive move, she casts a spell and wipes his memory clean. The recollection of their time together is now hers alone.
Every time Zane Carlyle sets eyes on Winnie Thorne’s enchanting face, déjà vu strikes. It’s as if their first date has already happened and their first kiss has already rocked his world. He can’t seem to shake the feeling there’s something he should remember. After Zane gains his magical abilities, his suppressed memories return along with a burning anger at being tricked. Zane decides turn-about is fair play.
When Winnie needs help recovering a charmed amulet, Zane offers his assistance, knowing it is the perfect opportunity to exact retribution for Winnie’s deception. This time, she’ll be the one who is played for a fool. But what starts out as a game of revenge turns dangerous when an old enemy resurfaces. Can Zane and Winnie put their differences aside to fight this deadly opponent, or will old wounds and animosity be their downfall?
Sounds good doesn’t it? Yeah it does. Well here is a little excerpt from this newly released book.
“You wish we’d never gotten together?” she asked with cold fury.
“Yes,” he spat.
She stepped up to where he stood. “Done,” she snarled.
Hands shaking, Winnie fastened the buttons of her blouse as she left the clearing and headed through the woods, toward her home. Today had been a massive mistake, but she intended to rectify that as soon as she got to the attic of their house. There had to be a spell in the family grimoire to wipe this day from existence.
“And, Win?” Zane called.
She spun back to glare at him across the distance. “What?”
“When you realize what you could’ve had, don’t bother calling me. I won’t pick up.”
Without bothering to answer, she fled. As she ran through the woods, a sob caught in her throat. Goddess, if there was a way to make him forget, she’d make it happen.
Once she’d reached home, she jogged up the steps and headed straight for the Thorne spellbook. As she thumbed through the pages, she happened upon what she’d been looking for and tapped the page. “This should work nicely.”
“What should?” A statuesque blonde woman appeared in the doorway and caused Winnie to scream. “Why are you so jumpy, child? Are you up to no good?”
“No, Auntie GiGi. I… well, you…” Winnie detected amusement in the other woman’s bright blue eyes. “Okay, I was up to no good.”
“Wonderful!” GiGi clapped her hands. “How can I help?”
“I thought we weren’t supposed to do things for personal gain? Why would you want to help me?”
“Are you gaining anything from the spell you’re intending to cast?”
“Not me personally. I was going to wipe Zane’s memory.”
Perfectly arched brows shot up, and her aunt silently studied her.
Sweat pooled under Winnie’s breasts and in the small of her back. No way she could bluff her way out of this one. She went with the truth. “Zane said he wished he’d never asked me out.”
“You’ve only been out four times. It’s a little early for a lover’s spat.”
“We, um, we… today, we decided to… um…”
“Are you trying to find a way to say you had sex with the boy?”
“Yes,” she expelled on an exhaled breath.
GiGi smoothed a hand over Winnie’s hair. “While young, you are both consenting adults.”
Winnie screwed up her face.
Tone hard, GiGi asked, “It was consensual, correct?”
“I didn’t put a spell on him to do me if that’s what you’re asking!” Winnie retorted.
GiGi lost the cool composure she’d always worn like a cloak about her. Tears streamed from eyes crinkled with laughter. The sound of her merriment echoed off the wooden rafters. When she could finally draw a breath, she said, “I was talking about him forcing you, child. Not the other way around.”
Heat flooded Winnie’s face, and she ducked her head. Uh, yeah, maybe her mind had gone there because plenty of times over the last four years she’d thought of conjuring a spell to attract Zane’s notice.
“You liked this boy, didn’t you?” GiGi asked. The humor was replaced by a gentle understanding.
Tears stung Winnie’s eyes. “I thought I loved him. But he wasn’t who I thought he was.”
Her aunt heaved a heavy sigh full of understanding. “They never are, dear. Show me the spell you intend to use to wipe his memory.”
SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Okay I am a bit of a fan girl. The author is super nice, the books are good, and when I find an author I love I may read all of their books as long as they are in genres I like. You have to support the authors you like, so they can continue to produce content.
So excited? Thought so, here is how you can get your hands on this book.
