Rowena May O'Sullivan has created a tale of opposites. The hero was born an immortal in a special coven that rules over witches and warlocks. He is practical and follows rules. His mate is totally different than him: she is human, fly by seat of her pants, and likes to breaks rules which is what happened to her at the end the last story in this trilogy. However, the hero loves the heroine because she does not mind speaking her mind in front of people, which makes him laugh! But does she love him? I had no problem following this story since I read the first one in this series, but if this is the first story you read in this trilogy you might ask yourself some questions: why the heroine and one of her sisters are magic bound, how a person with magic becomes immortal and how they move to Maryleborn Coven?
Alanna, the heroine of this tale, is a witch who had her powers bound by The Maryleborn Coven. The hero of this tale, Gregory, was put inside a Jade Dragon when “The Bells” wrung for him and he was unable to bind with his mate, Alanna who was 14 at the time. Well 10 years have passed and Gregory has broken out of the dragon; he must now find a way to make her love him and find out who killed her parents long-ago. However, feisty Alanna does not obey anyone especially someone who says he is her mate!
**I would not consider this a stand-alone; it continues the same story line, characters, and background information that was started in the tale “The Silver Rose.” The author wrote on her bio that this is the second book in the Greenwood Witches Trilogy.
This is a fun paranormal series, but do make sure to read this series in order.
Ensorcelled in a jade dragon, Warlock Gregori has a secret that could destroy his future with the one woman who could save him from turning rogue.
Charged with guarding the jade dragon, Alanna is shocked when Gregori shatters not only the stone imprisoning him, but also the invisible barriers she has placed around herself to hide a secret far greater than his.
A secret that could destroy not only her close relationship with her sisters, but also her life as a witch and most of all, any hope of a future with Gregori.
This is the second book in a series that needs to be read in order.
