This can't be happening to her. A random breakdown, an isolated mountain road, a seemingly chance meeting with a hotter-than-hot stranger. Tatyana is a modern gal who can handle any crisis, but before she knows what's hit her, she's sensing a hideous threat, not to her but to this man who draws her like a moth to a flame. Hunter. "I know things…I saw it." When the attack comes, she is his protection from a diabolical enemy, even as he initiates her into a startling world of magic, sorcery, and sensuality. For in a moment of terrifying danger a spark has been struck, and neither can escape the erotic fire to come.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Jacqueline Frank is an auto download for me but she has written this a JAX her pseudonym because she wanted to include erotica in her books and thought this would give them a distinction. However, I didn't find this book to be erotica on any level, yes is was sexy in parts but not more so than a lot of other books and certainly not along the lines of Lora Leigh (who I also love).
Tatyana wanted to join her brother and his friends because the two were close but she is unaware that he is actually a White Witch and he has joined other Witches in Willow Coven. When she gets there she meets a handsome sexy Master Witch called Hunter and sparks and sexual chemistry fly. But there is an evil Warlock and his dark Coven who's been raping, torturing and murdering Willow Coven members in the hopes of destroying them. It turns out she too is a latent Witch and slowly discovers her powers.
Thrills, chills, danger, surprises, magic, magical fight scenes, Witches, a Warlock, good world-building and some likeable secondary characters who provide strong bonds within the Coven. All the action and tension within the plot was good however, it did sound like there should have been a book before this one but I looked on JF's website and there's nothing listed but this book refers to a lot of events and a new recently formed couple that have already taken place which threw me a bit.
Worth a credit? For any paranormal romance lover out there this may surely tempt you but I have liked a lot of JF's other works more partly because of the 'missing previous info' and partly because I have now discovered goody goody Witches sadly just don't really do it for me..... So sadly, I would have preferred waiting until this was on sale.
This was a good book, but it reminded me that i don't like the witch books. Witch books for me are too chaotic, there are rules but you don't know them so it's hard to appreciate when characters do something impossible. Then the explanation after the fact that the character did do something exceptional is too late to impact the moment the impossible was done. That happened in this book several times, and exceptionally powerful witch vs simply powerful witch, or a powerful vs skillful, but in either case I could not appreciate the tension in moments of conflict because I didn't know the rules of this world. If this book had a follow on i could definitely enjoy it more because I now have a baseline for the rules of this world. The Love Story was good, I don't think this was any more hot than other J.F. books, but it did have more references to the abuse of women.
Love, love, loved this book. Everything about it: the battles, the magic, the characters, the love among the witches and the sex, lots of sex that was so well written. I loved Ryce and Annie and Dimitri. Absolutely hated Braen and Odessa. This is my first JF book but not my last. Great writer.
The narration was just great. Whether she was talking with Ryce's British accent or Annie's southern drawl Ms. Wilde did a really wonderful job. I will be looking to see what else she narrates.
