Review

"A yummy hot fudge sundae of a book!"
--Mary Janice Davidson, New York Times bestselling author, on Forbidden Magic
 
"Forbidden Magic is Charmed meets Kim Harrison's witch series, but with a heavy dose of erotica on top!"
--Lyndsay Sands, New York Times bestselling author
 
"Cheyenne McCray is my favorite new author!"
--Bertrice Small, New York Times bestselling author
 
Praise for CHEYENNE McCRAY AND FORBIDDEN MAGIC
"Wildly erotic and dangerously sensual, this explosive paranormal thriller sizzles. McCray erupts on the scene with one of the sexiest stories of the year. Her darkly dramatic world is one readers won't mind visiting again…McCray knows how to make a reader sweat--either from spine-tingling suspense or soul-singeing sex…McCray cleverly combines present-day reality with mythological fantasy to create a world where beings of lore exist--and visit the earthly realm."--RT BOOKclub Magazine
 
"McCray's paranormal masterpiece is not for the fainthearted. The battle between good and evil is brought to the reader in vivid and riveting detail to the point where the reader is drawn into the pages of this bewitching and seductive fantasy that delivers plenty of action-packed sequences and arousing love scenes."
--Rendezvous
 
"Forbidden Magic is a spellbinding, sexy, superbly written, dark fantasy. I couldn't put it down, and you won't want to either…[a]fabulous plot…[Cheyenne McCray has an] incredible skill at keeping readers engaged in every moment of the action. Longtime fans and newbies alike will be enchanted and swept away by this enduring tale of courage, love, passion, and magic."--A Romance Review
 
"If one were going to make a comparison to Cheyenne McCray with another writer of the supernatural/sensuality genre, it would have to be Laurell K. Hamilton…Forbidden Magic definitely puts McCray in the same league as Hamilton. The book is a very sexy work…Forbidden Magic is dark and filled with danger at almost every turn. Magic and mystery abound in San Francisco, with a major battle between the forces of good and evil, and the outcome is always in doubt when it comes to demons."--Shelf Life
 
"This terrific romantic fantasy with police procedural elements grasps the audience from the moment that Silver meets Tuatha and Darkwolf and never slows down until the final twist of their triangle…fans will take great and immense pleasure with this strong thriller that both genres will treasure."--Harriet's Book Reviews
 
"Cheyenne McCray's FORBIDDEN MAGIC is an intoxicating blend of luscious eroticism and spine-tingling action that will have you squirming on the edge of your seat."--Angela Knight, USA Today bestselling author

From the Back Cover

Cheyenne McCray's enchanting and deeply sensual Forbidden Magic left readers captivated and eager for more. Now, in Seduced by Magic, the stakes are higher, the passion hotter, and the danger darker than before…
 
DESIRE
Copper Ashcroft is an accomplished D'Anu witch, but the magic she wields is a potent force--strong enough to hurl her into a mysterious Otherworld when a spell backfires. Before Copper can escape, another being is pulled into her realm--Tiernan, a powerfully virile Tuatha D'Danann warrior. Blond, blue-eyed, and shamelessly seductive, Tiernan could be Copper's savior…and his touch sets her body on fire.
 
DUTY
Like others of his kind, Tiernan stands alongside the D'Anu witches to battle the demons of the Underworld. Obligation to his cause and his people cautions against any entanglement with Copper, yet each second spent with this beautiful, uninhibited woman stirs an insatiable hunger. Desire explodes into carnal bliss, but the visions that haunt Copper's dreams are growing stronger, and they foretell a terrifying evil waiting to be unleashed…
 
DESTINY
Saving the city will take more than brute strength…more than witchcraft. Only together can Copper and Tiernan find a way to overcome the dark forces--and seize a passion that has bewitched them both.

More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cheyenne McCray would give just about anything to run away with Jason Bourne to any foreign country (minus the getting shot at part) or visit an Otherworld realm. Either one, she's so there.

A multiple award-winning author, Cheyenne grew up on a ranch in southeastern Arizona. Chey has been writing ever since she can remember, back to her kindergarten days when she penned her first poem. She always knew one day she would write novels, hoping her readers would get lost in the worlds she created, just as she experienced when she read some of her favorite books.

Chey has three sons, two dogs, and is an Arizona native who loves the desert, the sunshine, and the beautiful sunsets. Visit Chey's website at http://www.cheyennemccray.com

I recommend you read the previous book in this series Forbidden Magic, before undertaking this book.

Unfortunately there is too little difference between "good guys" and "bad guys" in these books.

A practicing white witch, Copper Ashcroft was casting a circle when her magic clashed with a Darkwolf, a warlock. Flung into Otherworld, Copper is trapped with several very unhappy magical creatures. Only knowing that she is direly needed back home in San Francisco, Copper can only try to break the shield that is surrounding the meadow that has become her prison. While chanting a spell, Copper accidentally brings a Tuatha D'Danann warrior into her prison with her.

Tiernan, along with other Tuatha D'Danann warriors, have been assisting the D'Anu coven to rid the world of the Formorii demons that were trapped for a millenium, but are now free. Not knowing their specific plan, what they do know is that the demons are trying to free Balor, who would unbalance good and evil. When he finds himself imprisoned with Copper Ashcroft, he is at once happy to see her alive and frustrated that he is trapped. From the Earth realm, Copper has been missing for fifteen months. Now all they have to do is free themselves from the meadow and return to San Francisco and the battle that awaits them.

I highly recommend reading Forbidden Magic first. While this can be a stand alone, everything makes much more sense if you read FM first. The battle that began in Forbidden Magic is continued in Seduced by Magic. Cheyenne McCray brings these witches and warriors alive. The reader just gets pulled in so quickly that it is impossible to put this book down. I am really looking forward to the next installment in this series, including seeing what happens to Darkwolf and Junga.

There is a strong basic plot here, and what might be some interesting characters. Unfortunately there is too little difference between "good guys" and "bad guys" in these books. Both sides fornicate as often as possible, and in the crudest ways possible. When you have to go back and check character's names to decide who is doing what and to whom, you start skipping through that part of the book, hoping to get to the real plot. Alas, that received less effort than the sex scenes.

I have read MANY Romance and Adventure Novels in my time ... and never have I read one with som much F-ing in it. Not making love, not sex, but just straight F-ing. There is no tenderness in this book that I could find ... so I had a very hard time connecting with and seeing how the main Characters, Copper & Tiernan, could have possibly fell in love? If you like to read Porn, this book is great ... if you are looking for romace, love and all that implies ... skip it. As for creating another world ... the authors imagination is passible, I was able to "see" the "worlds", I just wished that not all of the "romanticly" linked characters were so VULGAR and base! It is one thing to lust for someone, but when there are feelings involved ... I am sorry, it is not always lustful, angry and hard ... definately more porn than anything else.

for my tastes but I did enjoy the magic and the characters. This is my first Cheyenne Mccray book so I don't know if this is her usual writing style or not. I did find that the first couple of chapters were confusing with all the different "creature" backgrounds being explained, but after you just remember who the bad guys are and not worry about the rest, you'll be ok. I felt the names for the demon races were way too complicated and way to similiar. What I did not like most about this book were the "love" scenes, although they were more like "porn" scenes, IMO. I'm not prudish or innocent or anything, but I don't think that the language and the terminology used repeatedly was necessary. There were no sensual scenes, just sex...which weren't even that great in the first place. I've read much better in Feehan's or even Harris' vampire books! I also felt that the nudity in the book was just there because the author felt she needed to put it in...there wasn't really any good reason to have it in there as blantantly as it was. However, all that notwithstanding, I felt that the basis of the series is well thought out and the series will have some interesting twists, although a little more thought could have gone into characterization of some of the more secondary characters. I could just be being hard on CM since I haven't read any of her other books (and I see that she's highly praised) and maybe since this was her first stepping stone into the magic genre, she just tried a little too hard. I will read the next book (already have it) and I'm hoping that the sex gets a little less crude and a little more sensual and believable.

After all the hype on the site and all the great reviews I was excited to read both books in this series. The story in Seduced by Magic was marginally more developed than the first book however stereotypes and bad cliches abounded. This is not a romance, nor is it an adventure or a thriller. The story is an excuse to cram in endless sex scenes and some of the worst dialog I have read this year. Don't call them "love scenes", that would be comparable to criminal stalking being described as flirting. Since I bought it - I finished it but it was a struggle. Far better fantasy series exist in the genre that do a way better job. Don't waste your money.
