    One of the strongest beginnings I have read in a book where a contemporary story turns suddenly paranormal or

    How a heartbroken middle-age housewife with a cheating sly disgusting husband becomes a witch.

    Literally...

    Molly Sullivan (after being pushed over the edge) is a newly awakening witch and Josiah Mason is a powerful witch who discovers her. Josiah is after a very strong enemy and apparently a clueless new witch in his area does not help his cause.

    Josiah will become her mentor, her friend, her lover.

    The story of Josiah and Molly is an awesome start in this new series that takes place in the Elder Races world.

    This was such a good read and a great start to a new series!

    The story is about Molly Sullivan coming into her power and her transcendence into becoming a powerful witch.

    One of the major themes of this story is that Molly's power (not only as a witch, but as a person) lies within her.

    No matter what anybody says to her, or does to her, or whatever else is happening in the world...this power is Hers, and Hers alone.

    Completely and forever, all she has to do is

    claim it.

    Josiah Mason is a powerful witch and leader of a secret coven.

    He has focused all his time, energy and money for many years on a literal "witch hunt".

    He's also the one person who can help Molly.

    I loved the complicated characters and their different backgrounds.

    Thea Harrison did a wonderful job of developing the characters and bringing the story beautifully together at the end.

    I found this book to be a much darker, edgier story than I'm used to reading by Ms Harrison, and I loved it.

    I found the emotions between the characters raw which made them more likeable (in my opinion).

    I really enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading paranormal-urban fantasy romance.

    is the first book in TH’s new Trilogy set in her

    world (you don’t need to have read the Elder Races Series to read this book since they’re not connected in any other way).

    Molly Sullivan is our heroine and has just discovered her attorney husbands latest affair. She has reached her breaking point and confronts her husband at a dinner party they’re hosting for the newly appointed DA. Her rage brings out her powers that have remained (mostly) dormant till now. I have to say, I loved Molly. Her strength and self respect had me cheering her on.

    Josiah Mason is the DA and a century’s old powerful Warlock who is looking for an old enemy (I have to say TH’s historical character choice for the enemy is brilliant!). Josiah has tracked his enemy back to Molly’s (soon to be ex) husbands law firm. While at the disastrous dinner party held in his honor he recognizes Molly’s power and makes the decision to help her see her potential as a witch and at the same time find out more about her husband and his associates. Molly turns out to be very powerful. Now she just needs to learn how to use and control her powers. I can’t wait to read more of this new series!!

    paranormal romance

    I'm a huge Thea Harrison fan, so when I saw she had a book coming out centered around witches that's tied to her Elder Races universe I was giddy with excitement. I read the entire Moonshadow series and several of the Elder Races books, many of which were five star reads. There are some authors you click with, and she's one of them. She's one of my top favorite paranormal authors for her amazing world building, attention to detail, and addictive stories. I enjoyed the fact that while she kept supernatural elements with her main characters, they are human, living in the setting of the human world which is a departure from her norm.

    Molly isn't even aware that she has latent witch powers waiting to surface until her philandering husband loosens her control over her emotions which in turn, releases her hidden abilities. Her rage is a powder keg that unleashes all of the fury of a woman scorned and it's a glorious thing to see. You want to give her the biggest high five for how she smartly turns the situation to her advantage and humiliates him in the process. I absolutely loved the beginning chapters and I was immediately invested in how she would reinvent herself in her new life.

    Josiah Mason is the new DA in town, witness to her embarrassing scene when her marriage imploded, and he just happens to have ancient and powerful abilities of his own. He may have a squeaky clean image and ambition to get elected governor, but he has a secret agenda that he and his coven have been working towards for decades. He's been fueled by revenge for longer than he can remember, and nothing will stop him from finally making it happen. Not even the complication in the form of a fledging witch who may or may not be tangled up in something she isn't prepared to defend herself against. As much as he tries to keep his distance, he just can't stay away from the beautiful woman on the brink of coming into unimaginable power.

    I must admit, I wasn't the Josiah's biggest fan in the beginning. He's very self-serving, abrasive, and difficult to warm up to. I was worried for a little while there that he wouldn't be redeemable in the end. He tries to manipulate the heroine every chance he gets, but the good news is that she puts him in his place every single time. Although she is at a very difficult time in her life, no one could ever call her weak. In fact, she's more empowered than she's ever been in her life. Not only was she bullied by her pathetic excuse for a mother, she was used by her husband to complete his perfect cookie cutter image. Now she's ready to take charge of her life, and she isn't allowing anyone to take that away from her.

    Once you learn about Josiah's past and what he suffered, you can empathize with his need to bring down the mysterious witch who wreaked havoc in so many people's lives. It's not just about getting revenge, he's trying to prevent others from needlessly suffering or losing loved ones. Shortly after the halfway point you really see him softening up towards Molly. He lost his selfishness, going above and beyond to show her that she was now his top priority. Making sure she's safe, happy, and attempting to find a way for them to merge their lives so that they could have a future together.

    There is an underlying mystery in the plot regarding Molly's ex and if the shady business he's involved in could be tied to the man Josiah has been hunting. It held my interest throughout the book and kept me turning the pages to see the confrontation that would undoubtedly happen at the end. There was one issue related to the final climax that bothered me a little, but that may not be the case for others.

    In the end, Molly showed her strength and courage, though the scene was a bit anticlimactic as it was pretty brief and left unresolved for future books. Overall, I was really happy with the romance. I wasn't sure if I liked these two together at first, but Thea Harrison brought me around like she always does. I'm really looking forward to reading more installments in the series in the future! I'm hoping Steven, geeky tech genius gets a book because he's the character that intrigued me the most out of all of the secondary characters. This was a solid start to a new series filled with magic, mystery, and plenty of potential to grow.

    Oh my this author really got my attention with purple panties served in a cocktail glass ! Yes this story about Molly and her transformation from perfect wife to amazing Witch hits the ground running and totally surprised me. Molly isn't the typical heroine either as she's a mature woman and not some girl who acquires Powers at puberty.

    Oh my this author really got my attention with purple panties served in a cocktail glass ! Yes this story about Molly and her transformation from perfect wife to amazing Witch hits the ground running and totally surprised me. Molly isn't the typical heroine either as she's a mature woman and not some girl who acquires Powers at puberty. The traumatic event sees her weathering her own personal storm but can she trust the only person who seems to be offering help ?

    Josiah is the new hot shot district attorney but he's so much more than just the jaded, cold arrogant male he first seems. On a mission of his own the last thing he needs is the complication of a local Witch and if I'm honest I really didn't like him. However there's so much more to discover about Josiah and he just as much as Molly has to make hard choices but alas to say more would ruin the glorious surprises and revelations in store for readers.

    So this starts what seems to be a trilogy set within the Elder Races world and if you pay attention a firm favourite of fans just might appear ! However this story is primarily about Molly and Josiah as they both embrace a completely different outlook. A lot does happen but I certainly wouldn't describe this as action packed although as we reach the end the big bad that Josiah has been hunting makes his play and yes it's a violent confrontation . The scene is set for at some point an epic battle with interesting supporting characters and yes I'm definitely left thirsty for more.

    This voluntary take is of an advance copy and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    Thea Harrison is a name I’ve seen pop up on my feed a fair few times over the past couple of years and with plenty of positive reviews, so what better opportunity to dive in and test the waters for myself than with the first in a brand new series.

    Thea Harrison is a name I’ve seen pop up on my feed a fair few times over the past couple of years and with plenty of positive reviews, so what better opportunity to dive in and test the waters for myself than with the first in a brand new series.

    This was a bit of a mixed bag for me with aspects I loved and those less so, but the author did more than enough to keep me invested in the characters, story and series. And it all begins when Molly discovers a pair of panties in her bed, the bed she shares with her husband and which kick off a chain of unexpected events which lead her to a man who tests both her patience and her resolve.

    The demise of Molly’s marriage and subsequent events shows us how strong she is and she takes nothing lying down as she discovers just how much power she wields...literally. And it wasn’t just her patience that Josiah tests—arrogant and overbearing, he’s like that annoying mixer tap that always runs that bit too hot or too cold and there were points when I could have happily throttled him—but he has a softer side and the tidbits we’re fed of that do help redeem him.

    Throw in action and suspense amongst the romance and magic and

    was an enjoyable introduction to Thea Harrison’s writing. I’ll be checking out the rest of the series for sure.

    Harrison is an author I enjoy. I like her

    series and

    is in the same world. Their were things I loved and things not so much, but the author did enough to keep me engaged and spellbound in the story.

    Molly, our awakening witch, is not your typical heroine. She’s in her 40’s which makes her a mature women who knows what she wants and doesn’t want. I like that the author gave us an older heroine. Yet, we soon learn that she gave up who she was to be a wife, socialite, and homemaker for her husband. The perfect wife! Things soon unfold and Molly discovers that her husband has been less then faithful, again. This kicks off a chain of unexpected events; leading her to a man who tests both her patience and resolve.

    With Molly I had this sense of self discovery and empowerment. She’s coming into her Power’s, finding her voice and strength, and finally; become who she was meant to be.

    Our lead and hero is kinda a jerk. He’s out for revenge and will use any means, people or otherwise to complete his goal. He’s focused, he’s determined, and he put his coven together for one purpose only. It took me a while to warm up to Josiah. I liked seeing his focus shift and him finally seeing/discovering that this one event in his life has consumed him, but with Molly coming into his life things change.

    Molly and Josiah’s romance is bumpy. I did like that Molly stood up for herself and stood up against him. Josiah needs a strong woman. 

    One thing I could have done without and it’s cliché in my mind,

     

    The other thing that bothered me was

    I liked several of the secondary characters, some more then others, but that’s due to what’s happened to them and how they act. I do hope we get to come back into this world and dig deeper into some of the other characters introduced.

    The suspense was enticing on who the bad person or persons are that are hunting and hurting people. This evil we briefly meet and realizes it’s bigger then what’s first implied.

    Last, the author did a great job giving the reader and characters this feeling of peace, love, and home, but also the knowledge that it’s not over.

    This was a great start to a new series. It wasn't what I was expecting, but it sucked me right in. It did have one small portion of the book that felt a little slow. It's one of those things that I think was needed to help set up background.

    I felt this was a unique take on witches. I'll let you experience their secrets but I will say that the witches can live a longer life. So our couple Molly and Josiah, are an older couple.

    This was a great start to a new series. It wasn't what I was expecting, but it sucked me right in. It did have one small portion of the book that felt a little slow. It's one of those things that I think was needed to help set up background.

    I felt this was a unique take on witches. I'll let you experience their secrets but I will say that the witches can live a longer life. So our couple Molly and Josiah, are an older couple.

    Josiah is a hard man full of the need for revenge. That does get in his way a bit in this book. Molly is coming off a really bad marriage and had every right to be bitter but she wasn't and I loved that. I really liked her outlook on life and she was just what Josiah needed.

    I do feel like we got closure with Josiah and Molly but their isn't full closure in the book. I won't spoil but I'll just say that there is not a huge cliffhanger either. Readers who like standalone books will be satisfied.

    I didn't feel like there were any hints to who would be our next couple in the series. I kind of like that we are left guessing as to what direction the author will take this in. I'll be ready to read whoever she decides is next!

    This was an amazing find. The world-building was interesting, though we are constrained a bit because of the narrow territorialism of the various, uh, demesnes? We're told that night folk are in San Francisco and witches in Saint Louis and, uh, others I don't remember but included demons and angels and stuff. So magic is "out" but recent enough that some areas are "anti-magic" whatever that means. At any rate, our focal point is Molly as the anger of finally deciding she's had enough of her husband cheating on her again prompts an awakening of magic in her. We're told this isn't uncommon and that people's power can come on them at any point so her being 40 isn't that big a surprise. That's confirmed by a cast of characters who trend towards the older side of the spectrum, age-wise and I kind of liked how that was more than mere lip-service in the story.

    Anyway. Josiah is near ground-zero of her magical breakthrough and decides to tutor her at least enough that she doesn't bring a lot of scrutiny in his neck of the woods because he has plans in Atlanta (which is politically anti-magic) that would be disrupted if people start sniffing around if a new witch with uncontrolled power crops up. And then plot things happen and they clash and reconcile and ally and I loved how Molly does her best to cope and understand and learn and how Josiah gets to show that protective alpha thing I love so well.

    The two elements of this story (the romance vs. the magical goings-on) are entwined, but still separate and its the plot that dances them around by throwing them together and then keeping them apart. This hurts a bit as the middle of the story bogs down somewhat and the pace was kind of mono-toned (on the unrelenting side) and I very nearly stalled out. Since that's also where their romantic relationship kicks in, though, I reattached very quickly. And ho-boy is this a great romantic story. The dynamic between putting themselves at risk by pursuing the noble goal of ridding the world of a huge magical menace vs. providing safety for those you love is front and center and I just loved how Molly and Josiah talked things through and acknowledged the conflict and worked together to find compromises that work. So even though they are compelled to be apart for lots of that last half, they're still very much together, or at least working together.

    Add that one of my very favorite crypto-personalities shows up as the villain (revealed around 45% in but I'll spoiler tag, anyway), and I was just super engaged.

    Anyway, the pacing issues that bogged me down sometimes rubs the perfect off of the story enough that I'm setting this at a really strong four stars. I just loved these two together and seeing them develop devotion and caring was outstanding.

    : There are three and a half explicit sex scenes that put this at the high side of my steam tolerance, but only just. The last and the half are completely gratuitous, but the first couple are outstanding.

    I also can’t quite say if I am on board with this series or not, it has everything to make it a fantastic paranormal series as one can tell by the high ratings but I am in the minority here with some of the other very few here.

    I felt no connection with the main characters of the book and neither what these two really had with one another, the plot was interesting but in a way also drawn out too long for my liking.

    This is just me so take my review with a pinch of salt.
