Charmed & Dangerous by Candace Havens

 


When Bronwyn turned twenty she took the oath to protect, and for the last five years she's kept that promise, working as a kind of one-witch secret service to the British Prime Minister. Her arsenal includes a combination of potions, spells, explosions, mind-reading tricks, and general butt-kicking skills. But Bronwyn has a soft side, too-especially when it comes to Dr. Sam, the favorite physician of her new hometown, Sweet, Texas. He's smart, funny, adorable, everything she could want in a man. Except he's also a warlock-a big no-no in Bronwyn's book of dating. Being a witch is definitely getting in the way of her sex life. If zapping evil jerks is easy, why is finding a boyfriend so hard?

Enjoyable read fast paced book .

For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have commanded the four elements and guarded the earth's treasures. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr, who count humans among the earth's treasures, and the Slayers, who would eradicate both humans and the Pyr who protect them, is about to begin...

When Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt's New Age bookstore, she's not looking for adventure. She doesn't believe in fate or the magic of the tarot-but when she's saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she's losing her mind-or about to lose her heart...

Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr and a self-reliant loner. So when he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he's determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost to himself. Then Sara's true destiny is revealed-and Quinn realizes he must risk everything- even Sara's love-to fulfill their entwined fates..

Enjoyed this book. It was recommended by a fellow friend on facebook. She described this style writing as urban fantasy. So I thought to give it a try. It was and enjoyable read and a fast pace book finished it within several hours .


For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have commanded the four elements and guarded the earth’s treasures. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr, who count humans among the earth’s treasures, and the Slayers, who would eradicate both humans and the Pyr who protect them, is about to begin.

Haunted by dreams of a lover who takes the form of a dragon, Eileen Grosvenor searches for the truth. She never expects to find a real dragon shape shifter, let alone one who awakens her passion and ignites memories of a forgotten past.

Erik Sorensson is focused on leading the Pyr against the Slayers when a powerful ancient relic reveals itself. Erik tries to retrieve it from Eileen’s possession—and is shocked by a fury of passion. Her presence touches him in unexpected ways, reminding him of mistakes he’s determined not to make again, and Erik is forced to make a choice—duty or love.

She refuses to risk their friendship for a few nights of what promises to be really great sex.

But the magic will wear off... Stitches In Time By Diana Hunter When Liam Finnerty agreed to let the boss's daughter accompany him on a business trip, the last thing he expected was to get lovemaking advice from a leprechaun. When a scrap of tapestry in an old boutique forces Maggie Andrews to confront the demons that have made her life miserable for the past several years, she admits her life is on the wrong path. Now all leprechaun Seamus O'Brien must do is get the two of them to see what is right before their eyes. Review quotes for Irish Enchantment "Of all the novellas in Irish Enchantment, Stitches in Time is the one that moved me the most. Maggie was the type of heroine I prefer to see. Three artifacts, three talented authors, three unforgettable novellas combine to make Irish Enchantment a don't miss read. Full of Ellora's Cave trademarks, emotion and more sex more sex more sex, this anthology will have you glued to your seat and downing iced tea while sighing over the beauty of undying love." ~Ayden Delacroix
