The Southern Belle's Guide to Witchcraft

Southern Magic Series, #1

Scarlet Burke’s her ex-husband turns up dead in a ritualistic killing full of an evil no one recognizes and she’ll have to join forces with the sexy sheriff if she wants to keep her daughters alive in this riveting paranormal romance.

Protecting the folks of Purgatory is usually an easy gig even if avoiding the persistent werewolf Sheriff isn’t and the reader can’t help but get drawn into all the intrigue and romance as Jake and Scarlet have to work together to keep Scarlet’s family safe. The chemistry between Scarlet and Jake is red hot and the sex scenes are hot and steamy but the relationship is not an easy one as Scarlet has been resisting Jake for quite a while which provides lots of passionate explosions of desire and tempers. The characters are strong, compelling and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning and the steady to fast paced plot keeps readers shivering in anticipation with lots of suspense, excitement and romance.

Spine chilling evil has arrived in the town of Purgatory, an evil that the Guardians are unable to identify, luckily they are joined by the Sheriff and a few others to hunt this evil down which adds lots of spice and excitement to the story as sparks fly between other characters as well as the main characters. The well orchestrated suspense draws the readers in and the well written scenes and details paint vivid images that make it easy for the reader to picture each and every scene.

The setting makes a perfect background for this edgy paranormal romance full of intriguing characters and interesting elements that adds a different flare to the story. I was completely caught up in this fascinating world from the very beginning and I am looking forward to visiting Purgatory and the Guardians again soon.

There’s a new evil in town, and it’s gunning for Scarlet...

Scarlet Burke isn’t an ordinary witch. She’s a Guardian, charged with protecting humanity from things that go bump in the night. And bite. Did she mention the biting? As if that isn’t enough she’s raising two teenage daughters to follow in her footsteps, juggling her crazy family, and avoiding the attentions of an amorous werewolf, Jake Mills, the chief police.

Jake has been chasing her for years. At times he’s bossy and possessive, but he’s just as often charming and teasing. And he’s definitely easy on the eyes. She has no idea what to do about him. He’s refusing to stay in the friend zone she’s placed him in for years. As he works his way more firmly into her life, her ability to resist him weakens.

To add insult to injury there’s a new evil in town and it’s gunning for her. But identifying the killer is even harder than finding him. As he begins killing off members of her family, Scarlet is in the fight of her life. When her daughters become the final targets of an ancient dark ritual she is forced to make an impossible choice. Fight evil with evil? Or hope that combing the powers of the witches and demons in town will be enough to defeat him? Failure is not an option.
