More About the Author
Writing, though, remains her primary love. Patti created her first romance when she was in junior high school and has been hooked ever since. She should have figured out she was a writer years earlier, however, since her dolls had such involved lives, complete with goals, motivation and conflict.

Dark Awakening was entertaining & engaging story. Author Patti O' Shea created in depth characters with Kimi and Nic as well as a good plot and storyline. Their sizzling relationship was also well developed. This story was fast-paced and had me clicking the pages away. Just a reminder, this is not a full length book; it is a novella. Kindle length is 1339. Despite its length, the author executed the story nicely with her talent of writing. The story flowed smoothly and left me satisfied overall. Therefore, I highly recommend this for those looking for a sexy paranormal romance to fill in their time.
By Patti O'Shea
Kimi Noguchi is a young Japanese woman who just found out that she was also a majo, a witch. She is interning at a Los Angeles advertising firm. The first thing that struck her when she started was that it was all woman; then she found out that they were all majo, and that she was one too. Now she is in training. Getting very board with the fact that all she is learning is ethics, rules, and consequences, but no actual magic usage yet. On top of all this, the man of her dreams, a demon named Nicodemus, didn't seem to want anything to do with her. A Dark One, a Bak-Faru, comes after her. With her cousin on her honeymoon halfway around the world she has no hope but to call on Nicodemus.
Nic, or Nicodemus, is desperately in love with Kimi, knows she is his vishtau-mate, but his half-sister - Kimi's cousin - has warned him off Kimi until she is older. Kimi after all, is just human as far as the two of them know, and Nic doesn't have a lot of experience being careful with fragile human woman. Knowing that Kimi is his vishtau-mate, and the fact that Kimi is actively seeking his company, makes it hard on Nic's control as their bond is trying to form, so he is trying to avoid her. When he is in San Francisco one night finishing up a drink trying not to think of Kimi, he suddenly finds himself in her front room, having been summoned. He finds out she is being attacked by the Bak-Faru, so puts himself in front of her.
Kimi learns a lot about love, men, the varying types of demons and the vishtau-mating during this book. It is a fun ride we take with these two through Crimson City. I really enjoyed Ms. O'Shea's writing style and the way she weaves humor in with the tense situations. I look forward to reading more by this wonderful author. I give the book five stars. If you like witches, demons, and other assorted beings of the night, this book is a great addition to your library.
The characters are interesting enough and the plot is decent. The climax is a bit too short (happens very suddenly) but it is a novella. The only downfall that I can see is Kimi's mention of her virginity on more than one occasion, yet neither Kimi nor Nic mention it again. Oh well...
Good, quick read with lots of sexy tension.
Take a good hard look at how I've written this review, because this is how the story reads.Read more ›
