Haha this book had me laughing all the way through.
Storm is convinced the crying baby is Aiden's child. With expressions like 'Withering witch balls'...how can you not smile...lol There are some great love scences between Aiden & Storm. The one thing I didn't like was that the story became a little hard to believe around page 200.
No phone call, no heads up or anything like that for the woman he'd been playing "dragon games" with while looking for a crying child.
But I still felt like elements of the plot were just thrown into the story.
However, things were a lot less clear in this book especially when it came to the foreplay and sex scenes which were numerous to say the least. Outside the sex scenes and foreplay scenes which I will again mention were numerous to the point the book relies a lot on sex to sell the love story, the work and plot is very clear but in the midst of them I felt like my head was spinning to the point that Id kind of zone out reading them. The book is a close third like the rest of Blairs work and probably falls under the category of light hearted paranormal romance. She did give both story lines equal importance as with the last one, but as the paranormal plot is a psychic female lead cosmically tasked with saving children there werent many scenes or any that I can think of that needed the sort of dangerous scare factor that Blair failed to create in the first novel in this trilogy. While the story idea was excellent, the clarity in the writing in this book compared to her other works is lacking and I believe she relies too much on sex to sell her story in this novel. Also in The Scot The Witch and The Wardrobe I dont remember any mention that Vickie is pregnant before Rory proposes but when Vickie and Rory make an appearance here for Harmony and Kings wedding Storm makes a big deal about Rory knocking Vickie up before he proposes to her. But back to the topic at hand, the story is fairly well written but as I mentioned doesnt have the clarity of Blairs other work. I think it would be impossible for this book not to have been hilarious with a female lead like Storm. This leaves the novel open to focus on Storm and Aiden as well as introduce and develop a few other secondary characters. Unlike in The Scot, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Blair manages in this novel to keep separate and believable identities for the reoccurring characters during their appearances which I liked. There were a few secondary characters that werent well developed like Marvelanne, Storms mother which I think was done intentionally so that readers werent in any way inclined to feel sympathy for her and Claudette, the mother of Aidens child who almost needed to be saint like to fulfill her role. Ive liked Storms character since I was introduced to her in The Scot, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
The story always gives me both humour and heart in an Annette Blair book, and so while they may sound and start like fluff reads, they always leave me sighing in pleasure and sweetness by the end.
For those days you have no idea what you want to read, crack open one of Ms. Blairs books and youll be smiling for days to come afterward. And even start at the very beginning of Ms. Blairs witch books. This is her second trilogy and even though the first three books, her Accidental Witch Trilogy, The Kitchen Witch, My Favorite Witch, and The Scot, the Witch and the Wardrobe, are not that closely related to this second set, there are some overlapping characters, but you just dont want to miss all the fun to start with. Dont wait for a rainy day to read Annette Blairs books. Dont even wait for those times when you need a distraction from life.
This is the sequel to Sex and the Psychic Witch, and there were some bumpy moments where past events are referred to and the reader is left to wonder if s/he missed something. While this had more details of witchcraft (particularly when Storm is gathering supplies) than some other witch-y romances, it still wasnt completely believable.
I like these books because they are an easy read, but I keep forgetting that this series is very sex-centered, so when I started this book I actually had an initial let down.
Annette Blair's romantic comedies owe their beginnings to a root canal and a reluctant trip to Salem Massachusetts.
