Charm Me Again
by Tena Stetler

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Paranormal Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Daylan, a warlock, is being haunted, but what the ghost wants is a mystery. His magical powers bring him no closer to an answer—until he encounters Josie, a Yoga instructor.

But when she is kidnapped by an ancient Fae Warrior set on revenge Daylan must rescue her before the rogue claims her as his own. During his quest, his world spirals out of control, and a devastating curse comes to light. Could the ghost hold the answers he needs?

Can he break the age-old curse to save Josie and their future, or will Daylan lose her forever?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT ONE:

Suddenly, the wind changed direction, a thin maroon line formed along the flat bottom of the dark clouds spreading across the sky where moments before there’d been only a few fluffy cotton ball clouds in a sea of blue. The maroon line widened then switched to vertical and spread open to reveal a shimmering interior.

Shadows emerged from the cloud then disappeared. As he was about to comment, huge raindrops plopped on the ground followed by pea size hail that grew to softball size.

Josie ran for cover and he followed. Protected under a ledge, she cupped her hands over her ears as the roaring of the storm combined with huge ice balls smashing against rocks echoed through the canyon. She elbowed him and cocked a brow in question, pointing to the vegetation that remained unharmed.

His eyes narrowed. Something isn’t right. I can feel it. Magic is spinning this storm. But who—how and why? At a loss for answers, he shrugged and urged her further under the ledge to wait out the storm. Brushing the wet strands of hair out of her face, he smiled. She looked like a drowned rat but the fragrance around her reminded him of sweet spring flowers. He leaned into to her and brushed his lips over hers. Immediately, he straightened and backed away. Her eyes were still closed. Maybe I could’ve lingered…

Her eyes blinked open and she licked her lips. After a beat, she waggled a finger in front of him. “Not a good idea.”

MY BOOK REVIEW:


This book took me on an exciting spellbinding adventure full of romance, mystery, magic, ghosts, family curses, enemies, suspense, and intrigue!!

I really enjoyed the main characters, Josie and Daylan.  I liked how easily they connected, and their passion just surged off the pages!!  I also really enjoyed the cute, flirty, witty banter between them which certainly led to many LOL moments.

I also enjoyed that the author created flawed and damaged characters that really showcase her writing style and ability to push her characters to reach their full potential over their arc.  This also allows the reader a stronger capability to connect and to form a bond with the characters.

Miss Stetler did an excellent job of world-building and keeping up with the complexities and details of a paranormal story.  I felt the author did a skillful job at making sure all her bases were covered and that everything seemed to sync up.  Although this was a paranormal-based genre, for every out-there scenario the author seemed to have a way to explain her reasoning, how it was possible, or how it came about.

I really enjoyed the exciting, adventurous, kick-butt, magical, fighting scenes!  They were entertaining and captivating!

This book has a creative story line, excellent writing style with vivid scenes, well-developed characters, is steady paced, and keeps you entertained through the last page.

I also loved the yoga angle to this story as I regularly practice!  It was unique, original, and authentic.

There are some predictable scenes.  However, there are still a few very unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming!

This book is not part of a book series at this time and therefore, can be read as a standalone.

All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!  I think all paranormal romance readers will like this book too!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!

    1. I've written most of my life. As a child I wrote stories for my friends. Then life intervened. After being downsized from my job of over 14 years, I decided it was time to follow my dream and get my books published. Thanks for asking and stopping by!
