"A hot, sexy romp with immortals"
Candace is a young witch who narrowly escapes being bonded
to a villainous warlock. Though she is devastated at the
warlock's deception, she is distracted when she learns that
Cian, her real hero--the one who appears to her in her
dreams and does delicious things with her--is waiting for
her and is eager to make her dreams a reality. But she is
not only to find rapture with him. There's also his friend,
the earth wizard, Regan, with whom they will form the
Trinity to complete the Bonding.
As an erotic romance, this book fits the bill. The sexual
tension between Candace and Cian and Regan is high and
smokin' hot. However, I do find it hard to believe that
Cian, who never desired Regan in that way, would suddenly
find it so easy to do things to Regan and also have the
same things done to him. Cian's jealousy at the thought of
sharing Candace with Regan disappeared so fast that I
wondered if it was real to begin with.
I've not read a lot of witch books, hence my ignorance of
all things witchy could account for my confusion with
regard to certain parts of the story. I was unsure whether
Candace is a witch or a faery. Most times she's described
as a witch, but there's one time when Regan referred to her
as a faery witch. Or, are the two terms interchangeable
I feel that the opening chapter could be improved to pull
the reader into the story. Instead of talking about Candace
having a dream lover, make us see the dream that she is
having. Instead of having Candace and Sam talk about what
had happened at the ceremony, the impact to the reader
would have been enhanced if the event had been shown.
Another thing that detracted from my enjoyment is the
information dump in certain places of the story, which I
feel could have been presented in a better manner.
That said, there was a twist toward the end of the story
that took me by surprise, as I honestly didn't see it
