I enjoyed reading these two books. The author proves she is not intimidated by the shortness of the novella. She does a great job developing her story and creating fully rounded characters. The plot is face-paced and I found myself turning the pages as soon as possible so I could find out what happened next. I look forward to the next book in this series.
Welcome to the Hidden Coven. Tucked away in the rugged hills of Pennsylvania is a unique village; a mix of medieval and modern, dark and light, guided by a mad seer and hidden from the mundane world by dangerous magic. As ley-lines swell, and magic spills back into the world, keeping this coven a secret
becomes a race against dark forces who would take the power of the witches for their own.
Bobbi Cole’s first attempt at spell-casting leaves her paralyzed, and the only the High Priestess of the Hidden Coven can help. Quinn Mason, head of security for the coven, doesn’t want Bobbi around. He doesn’t trust strangers. Not when a demonic force is looking for a way inside the coven’s defenses to steal their most valuable resource: magic. Bobbi will have to battle Quinn’s mistrust and her own insecurities to get a firm grip on her magic, and do it before the witches face their ultimate enemy.
When Bobbi attracts a new admirer, Quinn breaks all the rules to keep them apart. It’s not that he’s jealous. Okay, he’s burning with jealousy, but William Fain is not what he seems. And with the demon Koro’s agent loose in Ashlet, Quinn isn’t taking any chances with Bobbi’s safety or the fate of the Hidden Coven.
As Bobbi falls under the stranger’s sway, Quinn must convince coven leaders that Fain poses a real threat and not just to Quinn’s love life. Get to know the Hidden Coven family from an all new perspective as four powerful witches and two civilians come together to stop the blood rite that will cost Bobbi her life and unleash a demon on the world.
If Kim McDougall could have one magical superpower, it would be to talk to animals. Or maybe to shift into animal form. Definitely, fantastical critters and magic often feature in her stories. So until she can change into a Griffin and fly away, she writes dark paranormal action and romance tales. Kim is also passionate about fiber art, photography, children’s literacy, rescue animals, nature, and genre-bending fiction.
