Welcome to the captivating world of Appalachian Magic! Charmed and Dangerous is a great New Adult paranormal romance that blends the hidden world of witchcraft and supernatural beings with a gorgeous southern, creating a page-turner of a story!
Having read (and loved) ‘Changeling,’ I was thrilled to return to the world of southern witches and hidden worlds. Callie Bradford is a tough and resilient heroine who faces more than her fair share of trauma with courage, wit, and admirable determination. Between a strained reunion with the mother and grandmother she believes cast her aside, the revelation that she’s a burgeoning ‘super-witch,’ and the quest to determine the truth about the father she thought was dead, she’s on a collision course with more than earthly danger.
Hidden Immortal James MacLauren proves a worthy hero, trusting and aiding Callie in spite of the power she could use to bind him. Though a mortal witch can only bring him heartache, Callie’s spirit, loyalty, and courage draw him like no other woman. No spoilers, but when James discovers Lucas Bradford’s (Callie’s father) deadliest secret, he puts more than his freedom on the line to protect and aid Callie.
Twists and turns aplenty in this story, as well as an immensely satisfying heroine’s journey, make for a great read!
I was also very pleased to read a female-centered coming of age story featuring Callie and the host of amazing and resilient women around her. Her mother and both grandmothers serve as wonderful mentors, and I adore her relationship with gal pal Skye. There are so many buddy/mentor books out there for boys and young men. It was a TREAT to have a series for girls/young women.
I also adore that Callie isn't a shy, shrinking virgin. She owns and embraces her desires. So refreshing!
Fans of paranormal romance and YA/NA should definitely check out this series!
Shortly after returning home, she runs into James, who knocks her off her feet. But he's far more than what he appears at first, and he's terrified of Callie's magic. They make a very unlikely pair in their world, and trust is needed if they are ever going to make it last. This trust will be pushed from all directions; close family memebers with an ax to grind, as well as the enemy to try and make them weak.
This was a very exciting book and I really enjoyed learning about the world Debbie Herbert has built. It's familiar in many ways, but with some nice surprised to set its lore apart from the rest. With quite a suspenseful ending (but don't worry, no cliffhanger), I know that I will want to re-visit the Appalachian Magic world to see what else is in store for these great characters.
She also meets James MacLauren, who completely perplexes her. She thinks he likes her, but he goes from hot to cold with his emotions so fast he makes her head spin and she just can't figure him out. He's hiding secrets of his own.
This is a wonderful NA book. The main character sees growth through out the book. It's fun, has some adventure, has danger, the plot is steady. The author does a wonderful job of portraying the angst of youth. I like that it's set in Appalachia. It's s good book and it's well written.
