No Rest for the Witches - MaryJanice Davidson, Lori Handeland,
Cheyenne McCray and Christine Warren
"From broomsticks to black magic, leather-clad warriors to love
potions gone wrong, here you'll find four stories of supernatural sex
and suspense from some of today's hottest bestselling authors."
Admittedly, I originally picked this charming book up for the
MaryJanice Davidson story "The Majicka". It was a great surprise to
come away from this read with an additional three authors to seek out
The anthology starts out with Ireland Shea starring in "The Majicka".
For a girl who tries hard to live a "normal" life, she ends up
surround by a wide variety of characters of the supernatural
persuasion as her inner circle of friends. Each turn of the page
brings new twists to her increasingly paranormal life and to this fast
paced and uproariously funny story. If you love other MaryJanice
Davidson works for their acerbic wit and good humor (with a splash
of steamy magical love) then you are sure to be pleased with this
In "Voodoo Moon," Lori Handeland pens another thriller resplendent with
a tough FBI agent, murder, voodoo dolls and no small amount of magic.
Special agent Duran thinks she's embarking on yet another routine
serial killer case - cut and dried. Not so much. What she encounters in
the backwoods of Louisiana is enough to make anyone's skin crawl.
Faced with the power of belief in the unknown or cold hard data to
apprehend this killer, she faces one of the most evil creatures you
can conceive of and the opportunity of a lifetime. Of course, no story
from this author would be complete without a little steamy sex and a
completely unforeseen twist at the end. Lori Handeland does not
Who knew that San Francisco was home to resident evil Gods, sexy
leather-clad Celtic warriors, witches and the ultimate struggle
between good and evil? Why author Cheyene McCray of course! Ms. McCray
brings just the right balance of fantasy realms coupled with real life
places in her mini masterpiece, "Breath of Magic". A little slap and
tickle, save the world from destruction - all of that and a bar of
Few authors have the power to make me actually laugh out loud.
Christine Warren in her savvy "Any Witch Way She Can" did just that.
What happens when a non-magically inclined thirty-something,
desperate for love Randy Berry, decides to make the man of her dreams
appear with her own special brand of magic? Her own special blend of
backfire that's what. Hot and heavy mind blowing sexual seduction (in
45 minutes or less) has Randy on edge (of love that is) and her shape
shifter grandmother in full disapproval mode (in 5 minutes or less).
Complete with time warp, this little ditty is sure to have you
splitting your seams just like me.
All four of these stories are well written, fast paced, humorous and easy to read.
4 really good stories from 4 terrific authors. I loved the Cheyenne McCray story as it ties into the witches & warriors which I just finished. I don't usually like all stories in an anthology but these were all great. Enjoy!
I bought this book for the MaryJanice Davidson story and ended up liking the Lori Handeland story better. All four stories were okay although I really didn't love the third and fourth stories much. The MJD story and Handeland were both pretty good.
I didn't care for this book much. The good part- the stories are quite hot and sexy, the bad- at least one story tried to fit way too many unnecessary characters in, and the main character was just irritating. If you're looking for witchy stories, I'd recommend Alice Hoffman instead.
I enjoyed all the stories except for Davidson's. The other 3 are part of continuing series'
