Publisher's Summary

Thorn works after dark. That's when she combines her gifts as a tattoo artist and her powers as a natural born witch to weave magick into her ink. Her tattoo parlor, Stained, on Berkeley's quirky Telegraph Avenue draws clients from all walks of life. Her work is in high demand from the supernatural community and the undead. With her raven familiar, Thorn's been on the run all her adult life. She won't talk about why. She only wants to practice her art in peace. But when a murderer targets her clients, Se, a tall, dark and Irish detective is assigned to investigate. Can they learn to trust each other and survive the cat and mouse game that ensues.

    "To catch a killer"

    I really liked it. Just now I looked at a review and the person thought that there was not enough angst from the killer--pooh! They rarely think that they will get caught or else they simply think that they are immune to punishment (former jail nurse). I was interested in the way that the author treated the issue of witchcraft, and found the romance angle to be a bonus. I read the audio edition and really enjoyed the performance by Valerie Gilbert.

    Story
    "It Must Be Magic!"

    I finished listening to the first audio but I'm still somewhat confused from listening to the first short novella to this complete story. Narrator and author Valerie Beth Gilbert has done a great job with this story. She's not the author of this story though. I think the honors go to Jessica McBrayer. Overall, this one gets 5 🌟.

    Story
    "A Magical Adventure"

    A hunky cop, a sexy witch on a motorcycle, and a talking raven make for a magical adventure. When a serial killer targets Thorne's paranormal tattoo clients, she and hunky cop Se must hunt down the villain before everyone Thorne cares about is endangered. Attraction between the cop and the witch sizzles right into my earphones. What I love about this book is that unique use of the tattoos, which use special inks for paranormal clients and are interwoven with magical talismans. This special element, along with delectable characters, brings Stained far and above most urban fantasy/paranormal offerings.
