Publisher's Summary

When the topic of grandchildren comes up during a weekly sewing circle, the matriarchs of the founding families seek out the witch Elder to scry to see if their sons have mates. They are shocked to discover that many of their son's mates are out in the world and are human!

Fearing that their future daughter in laws will end up dead before being claimed and providing them with grandchildren to spoil, they convince their own mates that something must be done. After gathering all of the warriors together in a fake award ceremony, the witch Elder casts a spell to pull the warrior's mates to them, whether they want it or not.

Aiden McKenzie is adamant that he doesn't need a mate and that she would only get in the way. He doesn't have time to coddle a female. He likes his world run with military precision. Little does he realize, Fate is sending him his mate first! He meets his destined mate Meryn Evans and things go downhill from there. She is the embodiment of chaos. In the first 24 hours she kicks, screams, and knocks her bear shifting mate unconscious.

Eventually they discover that life before finding each other may have been good, but life afterwards is perfect, even if it involves super soaker battles and accidentally discharging hand grenades.

Unfortunately the joy of their mating is overshadowed when Aiden and Meryn find themselves embroiled in a missing persons case assigned to Aiden by the Lycaonian Council. By assisting Aiden, Meryn finds herself the focus of a demented killer.

Can Aiden and the elite warriors from the Alpha Unit keep Meryn safe? Or did Fate bring her to Lycaonia to die?

YES YES YES!!!

Such a funny, refreshingly different view on the paranormal community. I loved how the author made sense with the different sections, leaders and roles the paranormals play. I loved the drama, the characters, secondary characters and misc. characters (I'm sure will have books later) all fit in and blended perfectly. the story was HILARIOUS!!, fun, a bit angsty, had drama, comedic relief and was fun spirited. would highly reccommend!!!

Fantastic

I love this series so we I seen Bewitched and bewildered on audio I knew I had to have it. The narrator did a fantastic job. Well worth the money or credit!! I hope the rest of the series will also be narrated

Hysterically Funny & Irreverent Paranormal Romance

Don't you love it when a "first" book you listen to makes you immediately want to buy the entire series? That's what happened with this book. Within the first few chapters I stopped listening for just a moment to search and buy the other books --- they weren't there. NO...NO...NO. I NEED a My Commander fix NOW!!!

This is the funniest paranormal romance I've heard. It takes irreverent pokes at society. The author wrote things that I've often wanted to say and sometimes did much to my embarrassment. They say "the truth will set you free" and Meryn Evans spoke it with a good dose of "hoof and mouth disease". If you want tears running down your face with laughter, pee in your pants giggles and a snort thrown in for good measure, then listen to this book. Meryn takes on paranormal high society in the funniest way.

Aiden McKenzie, the Apha Unit's Commander, is out patrolling when a tiny human climbs the warded fence and throws his life into chaos. A human is his mate and she is everything he doesn't need to fit into his station in life. Not only is she human, she is an introverted geek and a computer genius. So, after she knocks him out (spoiler alert) he does the only thing he knows how to do. He locks her in the trunk and takes her home to his parents. They can figure out what to do with her. Let the hi-jinks begin.

I saw that one person hated the narrator. I thought she did an awesome job with her characters. Maybe that reviewer just doesn't have the same sense of humor that I do. Take the time to listen to the sample to see if the author's humor is the same as yours. It definitely tickled my funny bone. The only negative is the book stopped too soon and I felt left hanging as if I was at the end of a chapter rather than the end of a book. Otherwise, it's a 5 star laugh out loud book of wonder.

If you hurry, this book is a whispersync $.99 Kindle and $1.99 audiobook when purchased together. (5/1/17)

There are 8 -12 books (includes novellas) in the "Bewitched and Bewildered" series and sadly, this is the only one in audio format at the present time. Alanea Alder also has another 8 book series, "Kindred Of Arkadia". This author could be my "New Favorite" author if the other books are similar to this one. Now if Audible would just publish the other books in audio format.

Over 28,000 people on Goodreads rated both series with an average of between 4.19 - 4.38. We couldn't all be wrong.

So worth it

Alanea is an amazing author. She brings laughter and adventure to her stories that keep you coming back for more. Meryn and Aiden are the first two characters that you meet. Meryn is a firecracker of a woman who keeps Aiden on his toes as they learn about each other. But danger seems to be around every corner stalking Meryn. Can Aiden save his beloved mate from the feral's or will he lose her just like the nightmares foretold. Follow Meryn and Aiden on there journey, laugh and cry and then laugh some more. It's so worth it.

Second time is the charm

I purchased this book back in the summer of 2016, I love this author and this series, but the first narrator was not very good. Apparently authors do listen (I wasn't,t the only negative review) and found a much better narrator. Thank you Ms Alder. Please do whispersinc if you can, for we fans who like print and audio.

Love the Alpha Unit

I really enjoyed the story! It was captivating and kept me hooked from the first words.

While I liked the narrators voice, I feel that she didn't do the heroine voice justice. At times it seemed to manly. But I do look forward to hearing more on the future from this series!

Loved it!!!

I have a hard time finding a new series/author that can stand up with my favorites. (Molly Harper, Patrica Briggs, Lorelei King, ex..) I think Alanea Alder will! This book made me laugh out loud.... at work. Also having a great reader like Charlotte Kane helps. I was pulled in from the start and finished the book in one day. Can't wait for the other books in this series to come out on audible!

What a story!

Not your usual shifter sex antics that you come to expect in shifter books. This book actually had a back story, a heroine with flaws, a loving hero who adored her because of her flaws, a supportive family and lots of friends for a girl who had neither for most of her solitary life. I just loved this book, it had me laughing out loud, getting strange looks from my husband. I can't wait for the next one to come out, with the mate who keeps having accidents!

Great story love that the characters are not simmering teens or twenty somethings however not great narration

It is a shame that the narration did not capture the book well. The reader did not seem to be able to convey any of the non-human characters and with that some of the great humour was lots. If you have time read the book

must read or audio book

A book you never get tired of reading or listening to. Well narrated, still think it would have been even better with multiple narraters, the charraters would have come across better. As the charraters are one of the books strengths .

Bellini ma poteva essere meglio

Mi è piaciuto anche se ha due pecche grosse... Avrei preferito.. Che nonostante l'essere predestinati i due innamorati ci avessero messo un pochino di più ad accettarsi ed amarsi l'un l'altro... Troppo poco tempo e poche esperienze non fanno innamorare il lettore altrimenti... E poi la lettrice sulle voci maschili per i miei gusti rallenta troppo con la lettura.. Ciao!

Meh!

I would have enjoyed it more if there wasn't so much tautology. The narrator emphasised this by the word, (Forever)… Gah! that was all I was anticipating to hear.

I had to slow down the speech quite a lot so that I could hear the sentence, phrase and paragraph breaks. speaking in male/female tones, there was a distinct slowing down, making the men sound decidedly DUH!

Story line was OK. I am quite the romance/erotica veteran and it was lacking in some shezam...

Good

3.5 stars

I really wanted to love this book as a friend of mine really loved it but sadly I didn't, I really enjoyed and at times it made me laugh out loud but sadly I'm not gagging to read the next in the series.
I listened to the audio version which was really good !
