Publisher's Summary

Shameless cravings. Wicked pleasures. Can she survive a bond more powerful than love?

For the survival of his clan, Jack Fialko needs to mate with a witch of equal power before the end of the solstice. He finds the perfect woman, except for one serious flaw. She has no idea how to engage in the dangerous magical foreplay - the duel for sexual equality. The task of training her in two days seems insurmountable, especially while other warriors are trying to kidnap her. 

Zoe is a warrior-healer hybrid. The trouble is, she has no idea what that means. It’s all a harmless game until, one night, a dominant, brooding, sexy-as-sin warrior touches her and ignites a shameless craving to mate. Zoe must decide if the scorching chemistry between them is worth fighting for. 

Can love and lust exist together in an exhilarating magical combination? Or will their bond combust?

Warning: The book contains mature themes, steamy and sexual scenes, and graphic language.

Dark Vortex

This is a hard review for me because the stories are REALLY GOOD, yet I felt like some parts were cut a bit short. Still things were all complete, nothing was left undone. Maybe a bit more background in a few characters would have been good. I’m so glad to have taken a chance on this book. And the 4th book was my favorite. I laughed so much.
The narrator was good. But there were a few times in book 4 that I had a hard time knowing who was talking because there wasn’t any distinction in the voices.
Definitely would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in some paranormal sexy, fun and adventure!!

Steamy Paranormal Romance

This is a fantastic paranormal romance series and very steamy; I thoroughly enjoyed it. In the paranormal genre, World-building is essential, Stella Marie Alden has done an exceptional job creating the Dark Vortex (Mated by Magic) world. The storyline is very sensual and marvelously entertaining, it's packed with romance, action, drama, magic, and witches. The plot is very engaging, you'll be immersed from the start, right to the very end. The characters are captivating, particularly the four super hot Fialko brothers, Jack, Jace, Josh, and their healer Mohegan along with their mates. The Fialko brother's and Mohegan all have great connections to their mates, very passionate, and the chemistries, charged.

Simone Gayuma's performance is outstanding. With her smooth voice, she draws you further into the story. Overall, the Dark Vortex world is a delightful listen, and I wholly recommend it. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Magic abounds in this set!

I was fortunate enough to run into this set and have the opportunity to listen to it. I wasn't paying much attention at the time and didn't realize I was getting the series, Lucky me!!! I've always been intrigue with magic and witches, although for some reason I rarely read books about witches. I am glad to have stumble upon this set. The witches for the most part live balancing lives. They aren't magic crazy since they have to exist with humans and keep their knowledge of magic a secret. The first book, I found the heroine a little annoying and quite naive. However, after much thought about how I would feel if I find myself in her situation, I kind of understood her. The hero came on quite strong and yet held back a lot from the heroine, causing a lot of misunderstanding. The second book, similar to book one but with enough differences to set them apart. This one also has the heroine and hero keeping secrets from one another. The third and fourth book has both heroine who have better understanding of their magic and are more confident in using them. The heros both are hard headed as always but they appreciate the heroines and their skills. Although, I thought the fourth book could have been a little longer. I felt like it was a little rushed at the ending, but still a good bonus since I wasn't expecting it. All in all, a very good set.

What a great deal!!

4 books for 1 credit! You can’t beat that. I thought the series was excellent. Interesting and different world of witches. The first 3 books are about 3 brothers and them finding their perfect mates. The brothers are fire witches and each of their mates are different element witches who when they mate with them their magic combines. The last book is Olivia book. She is the healer to the fire witch clan. She finds her mate a different way but it’s still magical. I thought the first book was the best of the 4. Overall the series was very entertaining and filled with mystery, mayhem, and plenty of sexy times. Totally worth the credit.

Fantastic Series!

The four books in this series center around the Fialko brothers, Jack, Jace, and Josh, who are warrior witches as they each find their mates. Their mates are each unique and while the brothers possess fire powers, their mates each have a different power (Earth, Air, and Water). The final book features Olivia, the healer for the Fialko brothers, and Mohegan, another Healer and a member of the Guild which acts a bit like a policing force for the witch clans. Lots of steam, magic, mystery, suspense, and action in each individual story.
The narrator did an absolutely amazing job bringing the stories and characters to life. One of the things I most enjoyed were all the different voices. A lot of the characters are from all over the world and the narrator really nailed the different accents from Russian to Australian. The narration is smooth and flowing yet animated and full of emotion when called for. Overall, this box set is a delight to listen to.

4 books that suck you in.

#1 Dark Vortex - Jack is head of his clan. Zoe is a warrior/healer witch with no training. Bad guys are after Zoe and her powers, can Jack keep her safe and happy or will he lose her?
#2 Dark Tremor - Jace has tried mating once before with disastrous results, will he truly try again? Terra is a loner earth witch with trust issues and a terrible enemy. Can she trust her own power and Jace?
#3 Dark Tide - Josh was betrayed by the woman he loved. Now even knowing Maya is his perfect match he chooses not to love again. Maya is a powerful water witch, and she has been passed over more than once for other women. Will it happen again?
#4 Mohegan - Mohegan is a rare healer witch. Olivia is a strong and stubborn healer witch also. What happens when a lust spell attracts them to each other, but neither wants a relationship?

A BOX LOAD OF HOT SEXY MEN, THEIR WOMEN AND DANGER

I received this book for free and am giving my honest and voluntary review.

Each book in this series kept me turning pages and dying to see what would happen next. From the Fialco brothers, Jack, Jace and Josh and their mates, Zoe, Terra and Maya respectively to Zoe’s cousin, Olivia and Mohegan, these earth element warrior and healing witches stayed in the fray to keep the balance of good while battling the forces of evil. I couldn’t put it down.

The narration was very good and at times, I was so engrossed that it didn’t matter that a woman was doing male voices. She was that awesome.

I’m glad I took the time to listen to the audiobook

I’ve read this book way before I learned there was an audiobook. I’ve enjoyed reading it and I’m so glad I explored the audio version. This definitely helped bring the story to life. If you’re not into cliffhangers, I won’t really suggest listening but it is so worth it. The narration was okay but overall it was worth it.
