My thanks to the author for my copy of this book
and to Rachel's Random Resources for my invitation to this blog tour
A beautiful witch lost in time. A brooding farm boy with magic in his blood and a chip on his shoulder. Dark secrets and shadowy magic. Paranormal romance with a time slip awaits in the first book of this new series.
Cassie Gearhart casts a spell in the forest in the summer of 1974. The next thing she knows, she wakes up to find the world irrevocably changed.
It’s 2019, for one thing. For another, all of her coven members have vanished, leaving behind only one man who holds the key to their secrets.
Nick Felson has sworn off magic, until a confused Cassie knocks on his door in the middle of the night, somehow missing forty-five years’ worth of time. But Nick knows falling for the captivating witch means letting magic back into his life—and that’s one line he swore he’d never cross.
Can Cassie unravel the mystery that transported her decades into the future? And can Nick resist the powerful magic and heart-pounding passion that swirl in the air whenever he and Cassie are together?
The Tangled Magic Series is intended for readers 18-plus who enjoy fast-paced reads, wild and witchy.
What did I think about it..
A dash of magic, and a love which transcends time, is the focus for this story which is the first in The Tangled Magic series. In 1974, Cassie Gearhart is running away from something when she gets caught up in powerful magic and for her protection she gets caught in time. When circumstances allow, Cassie returns only to find that it’s no longer 1974, but 2019. Her inadvertent meeting with Nick Felton, a man with more than enough troubles of his own, opens up not just a hint of magic but also a powerful physical attraction which gives the story an altogether different direction.
Paranormal fantasy isn’t my usual genre so it’s been a completely new experience to read of magical spells, deep seated feuds, and long buried secrets, however, the author maintained my interest throughout, and I raced through the novella in just a couple of hours.
I have enjoyed getting to know the characters, and especially liked the way that the author weaved them into the story with enough detail to make them come alive in my imagination. And whilst the relationship between Cassie and Nick initially felt a little rushed, overall throughout the course of the novella, it works well, and there’s a nice amount of passion sizzling between them.
The author has an obvious passion for story telling and weaves the story together with her own brand of spellbinding magic.
Equal parts bookworm, flower child, and eclectic witch, Denise D. Young writes fantasy and paranormal romance featuring witches, magic, faeries, and the occasional shifter.
Whatever the flavor of the magic, it’s always served with a brisk cup of tea–and the promise of
romance varying from sweet to sensual.
She lives with her husband and their animals in the mountains of Virginia, where small towns and tall
trees inspire her stories. She reads tarot cards, collects crystals, gazes at stars, and believes magic is
the answer (no matter what the question was).
If you’ve ever hoped to find a book of spells in a dusty attic, if you suspect every misty forest contains a hidden portal to another realm, or if you don’t mind a little darkness before your happily-ever-after, her books might be just the thing you’ve been waiting for.
