Bewitching Hour begins a new PNR series. I've read other novels by this author but this is on a whole different plane! I loved this book, and while it does end on a cliff hanger the series should be releasing all together. So no long wait to endure till the next one releases.
This story was very well written with plenty of action and a smokin' hot sex scene! Samantha is a strong character who wants to deny not only her family but her magic heritage as well. The hero Derek is a straight arrow NYPD homicide detective. As neighbors in the same building they don't have much contact but when a series of murders has Samantha outing a couple of charlatan 'psychics' to the hot detective things heat up very quickly! This is a fast paced page turner with lots of interesting characters and a plot line that will carry you through the series.
Don't miss this new series!
Samantha Harris is a witch. Born to a family of witches, she doesn't like the things that magic does and is on a magic-starvation diet. (Also, she is not very good at using her magic, so that doesn't make her want to depend on it.) This does not work out well for her since she is literally sick all the time, sorta like alcohol withdrawals. Derek Pierce, Detective Derek Pierce, lives in her building, but she does not really know him except to speak. When he is investigating a string of murders that she can't help but think are magic related, she tries to steer him away from the two, fake, "psychics" he is working with. His captain asks her to use her witch powers to assist in solving the case, how the heck did he know she had those? Well, her family is pretty famous in certain circles, but does she really want to attempt a spell that might give the police a lead?
Deciding she likes Derek, probably not a good idea, she makes up a potion that will help her "see" what one of the victims saw. She can see the evil, but it doesn't have an actual face. She does get a thought from the victim that leads them to friend who knows more than she has admitted to the police.
What Sam finds and does, puts her in conflict with her grandmother. Claudia is a very powerful witch, and she really does not like Derek poking into her magic. What will she do to him to try and get him off her case? You will have to read and see. I am off to read book 2 in the series.
It turns out: it totally did!! The pace was fast but coherent and the plot was intense and addictive! The book was so great!!!
Samantha is a witch who is trying to get away from magic, even if that choice makes her phisically weaker. Derek is a detective who lives in the same building as her and is trying to stop a series of murders. When Sam realizes these murders were based on magic and some weird dark ritual, she steps up to help the investigation.
Even being a non believer, Derek is forced to admit that there are some strange mistical things happening, and as the investigation goes on, they get closer and closer.
So now, after so many things they lived and survived together, they have a turning point: either stay together and fight the evil as partners and as a couple, and that includes stepping up against her own family, or they get apart, deny their feelings and what might be a pontentially great relationship and somehow fight apart for the same cause!
And that decision is what I'm about to find out in the next book!!
Told from dual third person perspectives (Samantha and Derek) THE BEWITCHING HOUR focuses on the hunt for a serial killer that leads our story line hero, Detective Derek Pierce, to his sexy but closed off neighbor Samantha Harris. Samantha is a reluctant witch who has had little control over her emerging powers but when a series of murders looks more like ritualistic killings, Samantha offers her help in locating the person responsible. What ensues is the building relationship between Derek and Samantha; Derek’s spiral into the world of witches and magic; and the revelation that all is not well within the ‘family’ of witches and warlocks. Someone is gathering power, and everyone is at risk.
Samantha Harris is a witch; descended from a powerful lineage of witches, revered and reviled by the local community. But Samantha struggles with the darkness that continues to encroach upon her life. Derek Pierce doesn’t believe in the occult or the supernatural forces purported to be behind the recent serial killings but finding himself targeted by the ‘family’ forces Derek to push Samantha out of his life.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Samantha’s sister Heather, their mother Abigail Harris, and the matriarch of the ‘family’ Claudia Harris, as well as a powerful warlock Jackson Benedict whom Samantha uses to increase her once-dormant powers, and a young witch Claire Smith who survived an attack by the serial killer.
The world building looks at the hunt for a serial killer, and the connection to the ‘family’ Samantha has battled for most of her life. The relationship between our leading couple struggles in the face of the truth, and the family’s need to destroy anyone who interferes in the supernatural order.
THE BEWITCHING HOUR is a fast paced, intriguing and thrilling story line about the power of the occult, and the internal struggle for a family whose secrets are about to be exposed. The premise is imaginative; the characters are intense and powerful; the romance is challenging and fated. THE BEWITCHING HOUR is an enchanting look at witches, warlocks and the battle for control. The story ends on a bit of a cliff hanger-you have been warned.
