Oy vey! Shit just got serious in Chicago. The Witches Union has discovered that Leigh Epstein has been dabbling in the dark arts, and now they want to become creative editors for Leigh's paranormal romance, "Four-Bitten Fangtasy", a book about a shape shifting-werewolf-vampire hybrid named Vlad. They definitely have something up their sleeves and they've assigned our young apprentice witch to a mentor named Gertie, who isn't quite up to snuff.

If Leigh has learned anything this summer, it's that magic can be chaotic. Despite some headline-making disasters in her last diary, Leigh is eternally hopeful. With Four-bitten Fangtasy behind her, Leigh decides to write a little paranormal erotica with her newest disasterpiece, Bangin' the Billion-were. She even takes on a rehash of the popular YA dystopian genre in her novella, Regurgitant. It seems that even the editing of other authors' writing can make her unwittingly fire up her literal witchcraft.

This is the best new series find for me so far this year! I love the characters and the storyline! If someone would have written a review for these books that said if you have read all the Robyn Petermen, Eve Langlais, and are looking for their quality writing but with more humor I would have found this series sooner! Highly recommend!

It's Halloween, Leigh's favorite time of the year. As a rookie witch with high hopes, she has a lot to look forward to. When a mysterious supernatural force meddles in her life, things take a turn for the worse. Hunter gets caught in the paranormal crossfire, and his very soul may be at risk. Leigh's job seems to have suddenly gone sour as well. The public school doesn't share this young teacher's enthusiasm for what they deem to be a religious holiday.

It’s not fair that only males get to go out and pillage the universe. Being born a female automatically means staying home and birthing the next generation of warriors. Azteriya has other plans. She has a dream of traveling the galaxy and exploring strange new worlds. Fighting fierce foes. Of clubbing a viable male to bring home to her mother so that her transgression is forgiven.

This was well written and preformed. While I have read many of this authors paranormal stories and enjoyed every minute, I had not yet moved into her off world titles. This book was alot different than what I had thought that I would get, but in a good way! The characters are what I liked the most. She is so arrogant yet sassy you can't help but laugh at her antics! And he just tugs at your heart strings right off the bat! They fit togther perfectly! Their adventures get you pulling for them as well as giving us some great laughs. I will definitely be doing exactly what I should not be doing ! Purchasing more of these alien adventure books by this author and falling into another binge read/listen! Highly recommend this talented authors work!

I met a trio of furballs when my BFF was dealing with a demon issue and since then, I can't stop thinking about them. When the chance to investigate a possessed house appears on my desk - after I filch it from someone else's - I know it's fate we team up again. However, I might have bitten off more than I can chew, because suddenly my hunky puppies are demanding I become their permanent chew toy. Me, mated? Eek, but also yum. Did I mention they totally make my body purr?

This was a very well written story. Brenda 's character was a hoot and just plain amazing. This series stays true to the theme of strong, capable female leads. The men are just plain sexy alphas! The storyline is fast paced and detailed! Nothing is lacking here!

Nothing sucks more than losing your humanity in a government experiment. Now I’m something different, something special, and everyone wants a piece of me. Go ahead, give it a try, but don’t be shocked when I turn the tables and try to steal your soul because I am so very, very hungry.... But I don’t want to eat everyone I meet. At least not in a bad way. I know Simon, a big, beastly shifter, and his buddy Gene, an actual djinn living in a bottle, are after more than just my lusty bod.

This was well written and performed. I purchased the ebook addition and was given a code for the audio version.
I loved Beth's character, she has a amazing sense of self worth that made this story so much more enjoyable to listen/read. That she has small niggles of doubts about her men, that quickly pass rather than bog down the storyline, really shines thru in this book. Her alpha males are awesome! The storyline is action, action packed and sexy action packed! The only bad thing is Lana's story, book 2, is slated for a December release. I'd be happy if that date should magically be moved up!

I'm a witch. Not a good one or a bad one, although according to the snooty wizards, I'm a stain upon their robes. But who cares what those snobs say? I've got a job to do: stop demons from infiltrating Earth and killing all the witches. Concentrating on my job is hard, though. First, the guy who's decided he's going to help me is hotter than Arizona in the summer. Second, demons are targeting witches such as me because, apparently, we're a tasty snack. Finally, the kitten I adopted has gone missing, and if I'm not mistaken, a demon stole it.
