Publisher's Summary

When Delia Forrest talks to statues, they talk back. She is, after all, the last of the Steward witches.

After an arsonist torches her ancestral home with her estranged father still inside, Delia is forced to sell the estate to pay his medical bills. Her childhood crush, Grant Wolverton, makes a handsome offer for Steward House, vowing to return it to its former glory. Delia agrees, as long as he'll allow her to oversee the restoration.

Working so closely with Grant, Delia finds it difficult to hide her unique talent - especially when their growing passion fuels her abilities. But someone else lusts after both her man and the raw power contained in the Steward land. Soon Delia finds herself fighting not just for Grant's love, but for both their lives....

    "Very well written and the narrator was great!"

    I really enjoyed this book. It never dragged and I enjoyed the narrator. The love scenes were vivid but not tacky and there was an actual story line that had twists and turns.

    This is for sure worth the $$ or the credit.

    "Not what I expected"

    Two stars for the book and the narrator gets a lump of coal. Watson Heinz is not the narrator, but Katie [unintelligible] is named at the start of the book.

    With the exception of a few poignant, very nicely executed scenes between Delia and her estranged father, the book's are-you-serious factor is off the charts. I can run with a fantasy as well as anyone, but I need a little more believability and cohesiveness than I found here. There are omniscient stone statues who can walk and talk and have sex. There's a good witch and a creepy, evil, zombie-like witch.

    I guess I could have gone with those things (IF the narrator hadn't sounded like Miss Margaret reading to pre-schoolers) if the romance weren't an 80s style throwback. And here's where the book ultimately failed for me. Grant is an unwelcome blast from the past: the wealthy, smug, patronizing savior. Grant decides he'll marry Delia even though he believes that she is a thief and a lunatic. Why? Because she's adorable, the sex is hot, and she needs a big alpha man to take care of her feisty, ditzy self. This Big Mis dragged on far too long, right up to the end with a predictable magical fix

    Stevens has no small degree of talent. She writes evocative, sexy love scenes. POV passages from Delia (who is not the ditz everyone believes she is) are strong and the very best of the book. What brought it down for me is the choppy editing, mishmash factor, and the unheroic hero.

    The narrator's delivery is bizarre. Odd pauses, as if she just turned the page and was surprised to find more words there. The pre-school teacher tone which, by the way, SO does not work when reading sex scenes. And did I mention emo overacting?

    "Didn't rock my world but I liked it!"

    This was a cute book...some of the scenes were H-O-T, but the concept read more like a young adult novel with R rated sex scenes, and the characters were older. There is a touch of the magical, a touch of the romance, and a touch of the hot scenes I like so much, so over all it was a cute book, glad I read it, but nothing earh shattering.

    "Boring!!"

    Could not get into this book. Listened for couple hours and just had to give up. Wasted my credit on this one.
