Review: Bewitching the Enemy
Bewitching the Enemy by Dawn Chartier
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was a witchy paranormal romance with a “fated mates” spin. It was a little dark but had a new kind of witch/warlock lore that I was unfamiliar with. You can tell that this book was being used to set up a series to come.
Storm is a tomboy type who is definitely not ready to accept any “woo-woo” magic stuff in her life. She’s represents the contractor portion of a group of sisters who own a construction company. I can easily see how this book will slide into other stories about each sister. They were all very different and will be coping with the revelations in this book in different ways. Backing up, Storm is excited about a new job to renovate an empty building into a surgery center. When the owner of the job, Nate, runs into her at his day job as a surgeon, the sparks fly in some conflicted ways. Nate is a Paladin, tasked with defending witches from the evil warlocks. When he meets Storm, he isn’t sure if she’s good or evil, but a mating brand removes any doubt from his mind that she is his to protect.
The romance was a little stop-and-go with the feeling of “fated mates” being rushed to consummate the relationship in record time. The ending delivers a solid HEA for at least one sister, but we aren’t sure what the future holds for the rest. Because of the amount of groundwork and the shifty past of the characters, I had some trouble getting into this one. However, this first book easily leads right into future ones to come.
