Banished Witch was a great read. I loved the characters and felt for them through the struggles that they were trying to overcome. Danella and Omar know that they are soul mates but Danella is in denial because of what she has gone through and been forced to do in the last ten years. Omar struggles to get through the walls that are guarding her heart and keeping him out. Omar just wants to be with Danella and wants her to be happy. He has to help Danella overcome her guilt and see that it is not her fault and that her family still needs and loves her. Danella wants to spend some time with Omar but does not plan on spending the rest of her life with him. The betrayer that she has to defeat ends up helping Danella and Omar stay together in a small way. As they focus on trying to best the betrayer they work together and this allows Omar to break down more of her walls. As Danella realizes how much she still cares for him she wobbles from believing that they can make it and disbelieving.
Once a princess of Ardenia, Danella, left her homeland to warn her childhood sweetheart only to be kidnapped and sold into slavery. Learning the dark magic from her keeper, she grew to accept her role as a witch to protect her family and track down the traitor to the crown. But when Omar Mandel, the love from her past, arrives to bring her home, she realizes she can never go home. That doesn't mean she can't use his assistance in her plan for revenge and, in the meantime, live out a few unfulfilled fantasies.
The queen wants her daughter to come home and Omar’s job is to see that it happens. However, Danella isn’t the same sweet girl he remembers. In her place is a sexy woman who excites his lust and claims his heart. He must teach her to trust in his love and face the sins of the past if they are to have a future together.
