If you like your paranormals with 20 pages of sex scenes at a time, and little character development or plot, then this is the book for you!
The male protagonist, Jack, is a slut. When he meets the female protagonist, Mira, she's "frigid" and recovering from a bad marriage. The rest of the book is 3/4 "we're so hot in bed together," and 1/4 plot and character development. Overall, a boring read.
I was disappointed in this...I thought it would be more of a supernatural thriller...in the Kelley Armstrong or Kim Harrison kind of vein, but as it turns out, it was more of a disguised romance novel - and a not-particularly good one, at that.
I finished this book in about 4 hours. It seemed more like very thinly veiled erotica than an actual plot-based book.
Mira, a hereditary Air witch, doesn't know much about her family line, and nothing about the fact that she has magick at her fingertips. Jack, a Fire witch, is sworn to protect her...and can't keep from bedding her in the process. Bast approaches the realm of Elemental Witches with a bit of Wiccan mindset mixxed with a lot of fantasy.
I'm finding that many of the "newer" authors in this genre are just using their books as a way to relieve their own sexual tension or to let their "Mary Sue"s run rampant. *shrug*
This is a start of a new series about witches. This was a very steamy read. For as sensual as it was, I thought it had well developed characters. There could have been more world building though. Overall I enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
Mira Hoskins doesn't know she's a natural-born witch who possesses the rare - and powerful- element of air. And she never expects to find herself tied to a mahogany bed frame, captive of a man who aches to fulfill her every desire and let loose the magick that dwells inside her...
The chemestry between the two main characters, and the actual plot is well done. This is a new author that I am looking foward to reading more from!
