Demon Bewitched by Jenn Stark

Witches.  They are not nice.  They have their covens and they summon demons to play with them like a cat plays with a mouse.  Now, a witch has to marry a demon.  How’s that going to go for them?

Title:  Demon Bewitched
Author: Jenn Stark
Series: Demon Enforcers #3
Publish Date:  March 19, 2019
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Source:  purchased by reviewer

Publisher’s Description:  You say witch like it’s a bad thing…

Former fallen angel, current smokin’ hot enforcer, and all-around demon most likely to get the girl, Stefan of the Syx knows women better than they know themselves. He should, because once upon a time, one of them caused his brutal damnation.

All these millennia later, however, Stefan still can’t resist a pretty smile. So when he learns his chance at redemption entails pairing up with a gorgeous redheaded spitfire, he’s ready to rock—until the other pitchfork drops. Because the bold, impulsive Cressida Frain’s not only a woman, she’s a witch. And a hookup between witches and demons is one of the few hard stops in Stefan’s book of Go.

Unfortunately, this is one offer Stefan can’t refuse. To keep her new position as high priestess for her coven, Cressida must lead her people in an ultimate showdown against evil. To help her succeed, Stefan must allow Cressida to take him, break him and bind him to her—body and soul. But neither of them are prepared for what happens next…

It’s out of the cauldron and into the fire when you’re a Demon Bewitched.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

Demon Enforcers are spread pretty thin in this world built by Jenn Stark.  They have to keep the demons in line or destroy them.  The Demon Enforcers are those that agree to become an enforcer for a chance to be redeemed.  The redemption is held in Archangel Michael’s hands and he makes them work thousands of years to get it.

The heroine in this story was stupid.  Okay, she gets a break because she’s young and has no experience, but she was played, man.  Stefan is ordered to deal with Cressida’s situation and he does his best.  The plot was fairly obvious right out of the chute, but the plot wasn’t supposed to be secret from us readers, it was supposed to be secret to the female heroine protagonist.  She fell hook, line and sinker.

There was one brief cameo from the world famous Sara Wilde, which made me all giddy.  How Stefan and Cressida made it through to the end, I have no idea.  It was all pretty touch and go.  Demons with big plans, witches with big plans and Michael with the biggest plan of them all.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 3/24/19

 

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.

Release date: April 17, 2019
Description: Wherever Dax Knight sets foot, hell is bound to freeze over.

As a mercenary for the Order of the Senary, Dax departs for New England to assist his comrades in battling the vampire forces threatening to consume the Northeast.

Cindel Konstantinov has been on the run since she escaped her sire’s possession, trading one life of abuse and imprisonment for another. As her hope for freedom wanes, she encounters one of the infamous Knights, and his dangerous appeal is undeniable. After a life-altering moment of mercy, they careen down a path of secrets, lies, and a forbidden passion neither of them can resist. But when her past comes back to haunt them, they’ll have to face the consequences of their actions—and their desires.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 12/9/18

 

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.

You know how much I love Jenn Stark’s books.  If you don’t know, then I’m telling you that I loooooove Jenn Stark’s books.

I have every one of them and I love how she can weave together a story.  She released a new book in October.  I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my list.  Check it out.

The Red KingTitle:  The Red King
Author: Jenn Stark
Series:  Wilde Justice #1
Release date: October 10, 2018
Description:  New world order, new job, new mission.

As the first Justice of the Arcana Council in two hundred years, Tarot-reading Sara Wilde is tasked with taking out the most dangerous magic-wielding criminals on the planet. Her first assignment? A killer known only as the Red King, who’s systematically picking off the world’s most gifted magicians in the rollicking streets and storied canals of Venice, Italy, on the eve of Carnevale.

Amidst the festival’s music, masks, and brightly colored costumes, Sara must unravel the truth about a brutal murderer from Venice’s own murky past, navigate the twisting political currents of magicians who seek to rival her own Council, and keep one costume change ahead of a conjurer whose lethal spells could end Justice–permanently. Good thing the diabolically sexy and deeply powerful Magician of the Arcana Council has Sara’s back…if only he didn’t hold so much of her heart as well.

The canals of Venice will run with blood when you deal in The Red King.

 

Title:  The Lost QueenThe Lost queen
Author: Jenn Stark
Series:  Wilde Justice #2
Release date: December 27, 2018
Description:  Not all who wander are lost. 

As Justice of the Arcana Council and an experienced artifact hunter, Tarot-reading Sara Wilde prefers to track down the missing on her own. With her latest case, unfortunately, everyone’s dying to help her out.

Determined to locate the Lost Queen, a witch destined to fulfill a dark and twisted prophecy, Sara finds herself corpse-blocked at every turn. Not even the electric, provocative, and deeply powerful Magician of the Arcana Council–whose newest arcane pursuits test Sara’s emotional and sensual boundaries–can help her find her mark.

Worse, Sara isn’t the only hunter on the case. From the shadowy labyrinths of Budapest to the ancient churches of Moscow to the glittering lights of Los Angeles, the world’s most powerful male witches are gunning for the Lost Queen, demanding her as their rightful consort. Right before they end up dead, each more gruesomely than the last. There’s definitely a pattern here…and one Sara needs to break, before her own mercurial Magician becomes the prophecy’s next target.

Better hope you don’t find what you’re looking for when you hunt The Lost Queen.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 9/2/18

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

This awesome new book released August 29, 2018, and I’m deep into it already.  I love this series.

Title:  Demon Forsaken
Author: Jenn Stark
Series: Demon Enforcers #2
Released: August 29, 2018

Description:  A Sin so great it cannot stand…

It’s not easy being the wittiest, sexiest, most devilishly handsome member of his elite team of Demon Enforcers, but Finn of the Syx has worked it his entire existence. The existence he can remember, anyway. While his fellow demons can recall their lives as Fallen angels–and the sins that got them condemned–Finn’s memory is a blank slate.

Which means his Sin was so horrible, not even the mind of a demon can handle it. Outstanding.

Now Finn is given his last chance for redemption: twenty-four hours to find an encrypted list of mortals marked for death. Unfortunately, the only person who can help him is Dana Griffin–the gritty, passionate, fiercely independent security expert who’s far more than she thinks she is, and definitely more than Finn deserves. Not to mention she’s being hunted by the worst of his kind.

Finn knows Dana is the key to his future and his past, but she’ll also be a dead woman if he can’t remember how to save them both before the clock strikes midnight on Christmas Eve. No pressure, though.

The life you’ve lost is all that can save you when you’re a Demon Forsaken.

Yeah, I’m in the middle of this one too.  There are so many blockbusters this fall!

Title: Storm of the Gods
Author: Amy Braun
Series: Arios Brothers #1
Released: August 28, 2018

Description:  Thirty years ago, the gods of Greek legend returned to the world. Their return restored their powers, which had been spent in a cataclysmic battle with the Titans. With the ancient deities imprisoned in Tartarus, the Olympians now reside in Néo Vasíleio, formerly known as California.

Twenty-four-year-old Derek Aerios is a war scion, a descendant of Ares, the God of War. He and his brother, eighteen-year-old Liam, capture mythological creatures and rogue scions as part of Ares’s elite military force. As he struggles to cope with his violent powers and the scars of a traumatic childhood, Derek tries to keep the two vows he has made: protect his brother, and never kill a human again.

But when Ares forces him to hunt and kill four rogue scions under Athena’s control—by threatening Liam’s life—Derek chooses to go after the scions in order to save his brother and keep his promise to himself.

Yet the closer Derek gets to the scions, the more he realizes that his orders are part of a deeper conspiracy that put him at odds with his mission and his conscience. Athena may not be the enemy, a traitor could be in their midst, and the Titans could be closer to freedom than ever before.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 4/29/18

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

Big news, people!! Here’s an author that One Book Two has supported with reading and reviews of her books.  Who is that? Kristi Charish!!  We haven’t heard from her in awhile, but that’s because she’s holed up in her writing cave creating new and exciting adventures for us all.

Releasing on May 7, 2018 is the next in Owl’s adventure.

Title:  Owl and the Tiger Thieves
Author: Kristi Charish
Series: Adventures of Owl #4
Release: May 7, 2018
Publisher’s Description:  In this fourth Owl novel, Kristi Charish (The Voodoo Killings) melds sparkling fantasy with the grit of urban underbelly—with a detour through the world’s most spectacular cities. This is perfect for fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and fantasy lovers everywhere.

Through no fault of her own, Alix has found herself essential to the fate of the world as we know it. She didn’t mean for this to happen—she was quite happy being merely the notorious antiquities thief, and ex-archeologist, known as Owl.

However, years ago, Owl reluctantly entered the secret world of the supernatural. Her goals: complete one job, escape one bounty on her head, continue her thieving in peace.

Fast forward to today. Now, she has become a key player in a brutal paranormal civil war that is rapidly getting out of hand. The leader of one of these factions—a lethal opponent called the Electric Samurai—grows more powerful by the second. To stop him, Owl sets out to find the long-lost, legendary group known as the Tiger Thieves.

But will it be too little too late? One thing Owl misses about “normal” archaeology: there are few emergencies with thousand-year-old relics.

 

This next book may need me to go back and re-read the first in the series to remember where it left off.  The VooDoo Killings was released in 2016 here in USA featuring star Kincaid Strange. Kincaid’s next adventure will be released in January of 2019, so I have a bit to prepare.  I am definitely looking forward to it!


Title:  The Lipstick VooDoo
Author: Kristi Charish
Series: Kincaid Strange #2
Release: January 9, 2019
Publisher’s Description: Kincaid Strange cannot catch a break. After dealing with a spate of paranormal murders, there’s barely time to recuperate–let alone sleep in–before there’s a new problem in Kincaid’s world of paranormal activity. When her roommate, Nathan Cade–the ghost of a grunge-rocker with a pathological lack of self-control–comes home bound to a dead body, it’s up to Kincaid to figure out how to free him. Ideally before her new mentor, Gideon, a powerful sorcerer’s ghost, discovers that Nate is trapped in the body he’d coveted for himself.

 

I really don’t want to talk about this because I’m sure if I don’t talk about it the end of the series really won’t happen, right? Yeah, you heard me right.  It’s the end.  I thought that depression was imminent UNTIL I talked with Author Stark.  She told me she will be releasing a new series in September-ish 2018 called Wilde Justice.

Here’s what she had to say:

Sara will not be shutting up any time soon–in the fall I’ll be launching a new series with her and most of the gang. It’ll be a tiny bit different in that my goal with the new series is to have them be standalone adventures vs. so deeply tied together that there was no way you could start in the middle of the series, and her focus will be different as a result of what happens in Wilde Fire… but this isn’t so much the end as a new beginning! :D~Jenn Stark

Title:  Wilde Fire
Author: Jenn Stark
Series: Immortal Vegas #10
Released: April 18, 2018
Publisher’s Description: It’s the end of the world as we know it…

The war on magic is here, and Mistress of the House of Swords Sara Wilde has done everything she can to prepare. The Arcana Council has recalled its most powerful members to hold the line, and the Houses of Magic are frantically strengthening their defenses. Then the first volley hits: a plague of demons freed to ravage the earth. Scrambling, Sara discovers that the war will be fought not on one front, but three–while new threats emerge at a breakneck pace.

All the magic in the world may not be enough to save it.

From an ancient coven in Chicago to the sunbaked streets of Vegas to the frozen ice fields of Antarctica, Sara rallies her closest friends and fiercest enemies to protect the earth from the gods and monsters raining down from the dark side of the veil. To succeed, Sara must confront the truths she’s been avoiding her whole life, and take on forces that have kept the Connecteds powerless for far too long. But is she willing to make the ultimate sacrifice?

When it comes to Armageddon, where there’s smoke there’s always Wilde Fire.
