Part of a small demon lair in Las Vegas, tattooist Harper Wallis lives a pretty simple life. That changes overnight when she discovers that her psychic mate, or "anchor", is a guy who's rumored to be the most powerful demon in existence.

The story was ok... I think I would have liked reading it better as the narrator made the female demon seem really whiney. I wasn't sure I would make it all the way through. Not worth a credit but I got it on sale...

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

It started off really slow and a bit rambly. Once Iowna calmed down and the story took hold it was much better. I want to know what happens next so I guess I will put the next one in my wish list and wait for a sale!

Half-Navajo Janet Begay possesses extraordinary power that is tied to the storms that waft across the desert. The only person who can control her when she's caught in the storm's evocative power is Mick, a dark-haired, blue-eyed biker Janet can't seem to touch with her powers. He can wield fire and not get burned, and Janet's never sure where he goes when they're not together.

Mary Alice Brannigan doesn’t believe in the supernatural. Nor does she expect to find that Dreamland, the decaying amusement park she’s been hired to restore, is a prison for the five Untouchables, the most powerful demons in the history of the world. Plus, there’s a guy she’s falling hard for, and there’s something about him that’s not quite right.

I usually love Jennifer Cruisie books but I think she phoned this one in. The plot was awful and there were so many mistakes. Like, "hey get me another one of those daiquiris" so he goes in and pours her "margarita" and she sips happily on her full "daiquiri". I plodded through hoping it would get better but found myself looking to see how many hours and minutes of torture I had left. Next time I am going to listen to the sample. This book was just so STUPID!

When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace. Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy - one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.

Twenty months ago, Jamie and Lauren crashed a coven meeting in Chicago - a visit they barely remember. For Beth Landler, it was the moment that fractured her circle and awakened her need for an entirely different kind of magic. The kind only found in Witch Central. If she can dig up the courage to go.
