"High kudos to Ms. Dean for keeping me on the edge of my seat in anticipation."
Near Oklahoma City, a serial killer is on the loose and
murdering young women. When the killer makes a mistake and
leaves Ravyn Skyler alive, he'll have one determined witch
seeking retribution. Ex-homicide detective Nick Lassiter
plans to use Ravyn as bait to catch the killer but he never
expects the passion that explodes between them or to fall
for Ravyn's quiet strength and determination. The killer
isn't the only one with secrets...Ravyn has one of her own
that just might destroy them both.
I truly enjoyed Heart of the Witch. With Alicia Dean
a new author, I wasn't sure the storyline would be strong
enough to keep my attention. But wow! She definitely packed
a punch with not just the plot itself but the riveting
characters, the suspense surrounding the killings, the
attraction between Ravyn and Nick and the climactic ending
as well. I'm a huge fan of mixed genre stories and I have
to give high kudos to Ms. Dean for keeping me on the edge
of my seat in anticipation. I literally couldn't put this
book down. From the very first page I felt a connection to
both characters and to the villan as well. I always felt
like I was part of the story and wasn't disappointed with
fillers or nonsense dialogue. If you're a fan of mystery
and thrillers woven in with your paranormal romance,
of the Witch is definitely the book for you. I'll be
keeping my eyes peeled for the next Alicia Dean novel!

There is a monster on the loose, a serial killer murdering young women near Oklahoma City. On each corpse he writes his name in blood: THE TIN MAN
But while the villain claims to be heartless, he’s not beyond making a mistake. This time he left his prey alive, and ex-homicide detective Nick Lassiter plans to use her to crack the case wide open. Yet, Ravyn Skyler is nothing like he expects. She remembers little of the crime, and for a victim, she has a deep reserve of quiet strength. In her eyes he sees both helpless waif and merciless vigilante, and in her kiss he tastes both passion and power. With a tale of a tin man, it only seems fair that there’s a witch. And this witch guards a secret that threatens not only their lives, but their souls.
