Mira Hoskins is trying to recover from the betrayal of her husband and their subsequent divorce. She has found herself as a waitress trying to earn the money to return to school. All she wants in life is a little stability and normalcy. One day, while working at the diner, her libido gets a serious kick-start when a sexy man stands up for her. Later that night, the man from the diner rescues her when two men try to kidnap her. She finds out that the man from the diner has actually been guarding her from a distance and has had to step in to keep her safe.
Jack McAllister is the head of security for a large company, which just happens to be The Coven, a national organization that governs witches. He brings with him the knowledge that life is not what Mira has always believed, there is magic in the world and that him, Mira and many others are witches. Mira must be protected, as she is an elemental witch over the air, which is quite rare. Jack and Mira are drawn together, first by their elemental magic and then their sexual attraction.
Witch Fire was a fun, quick read with scenes that made you believe you were there and sizzling sex scenes. Ms. Bast was able to create a distinctive world with strong characters and believable powers. The next book in the series is Witch Blood, due out in March 2008. I look forward to reading more from this author.
