Alright ladies and gentlemen, we are about a month away from Valentine’s Day, so let’s start getting in the romantic mood with a short novella from the Candy Hearts Romance series!
What’s it About?
Summer Dawn Riley’s an extraordinary elemental witch whose troubled past haunts her. She’s created a calm life for herself teaching yoga and keeping people at a distance. Her life takes a one eighty degree turn when she enrolls in a woman’s weapon’s class and meets ruggedly handsome Devlin Sawyer. Devlin, a former Navy Seal, has sworn off women after two long-term failed relationships, but there is no denying his attraction to Summer. She intrigues him like no other woman ever has. Despite her attempts to ignore him, Summer is drawn to Devlin. His magic signature is strong, but he’s no warlock. Will Valentine’s Day magic find them a future together?
You guys! After reading this novella I might actually have to stop saying that paranormal romances aren’t my cup of tea. For some reason I’m always surprised when I come across a paranormal romance that I like, so the fact that I loved this romance was kind of a shock to my system. But you simply can’t help but be drawn in by the simmering electricity between Devlin and Summer. And I’m talking literal electricity here. Romance characters always talk about feeling a spark of passion with their love interest, but in this instance our lovebirds can actually see the sparks between them.
Although Devlin is only technically a half-werewolf who can’t shift into his animal form, he is the prime example of a strong alpha male with strong alpha male desires. These two definitely have chemistry, and the couch seems to be their preferred location to explore/explode their passions for each other around Valentine’s Day weekend.
In addition to the simmering romance between Devlin and Summer, there is another dramatic story-line taking place on the sidelines. Summer is wary to use her magical powers after a rather unpleasant incident involving her brother’s vampire girlfriend. As a result of this unfortunate incident, Summer has a strained relationship with her family. I absolutely loved reading about the sexual couch explorations of Devlin and Summer, but I wish we could have explored this side story just a bit more to fully understand what happened with this treacherous vampire, and how it influenced Summer’s relationship with her fellow witches.

I read a lot of PNR but I haven’t heard of this author or the story. Thanks for sharing.
I have read this authors first book, A Demon’s Witch. She is amazing! I like romance but got tired of the predictability of the plot lines and somewhat predictable characters. Ms. Stetler certainly breaks the stereotypical formats of romance novels.
Tena’s book sounds like a great read for a relaxing day at the beach. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
What a fantastic review/ We’re having a virtual party to celebrate this review over at http://authorroastandtoast.blogspot.com and you’re all invited!
Oops! I meant we’re celebrating Tena’s book – but of course we’ll celebrate her review as well! LOL
