Great follow up to the first Wiccan Haus book. Loved that the hero and the Heroine were magical but humans in a magical place. Nice change.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

There was a lot to enjoy in this second novella of the series by an author I haven't read before. Although the hero and heroine are both human, the setting and mix of characters keeps it paranormal (and consistent with the excellent first book, Shifting Hearts), as does the wonderful healing magic. I really appreciated the inclusion of Holly's love being part of that magic, as well as Justin's attitude. They were a great couple. I don't usually like stories where the heroine pursues the hero, but it was so well done that I found it really worked for me. The romance is warm and fuzzy, the love scenes hot and enviable. There was danger and action, too. Will be starting the next one, An Apple Away, tonight!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I don’t have any experience reading a series where every book is not written by the same author, so I wasn’t sure what to expect compared to the first book. I was pleasantly surprised! The setting felt consistent with what was set up in book 1, and the staff from the first one were present and still rang authentic. We even get a few cameo appearances from Mr. sexy were-tiger himself, Rekkus, from the first one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Now in this story, Justin gets hurt on a mission and the person that did it is still at large, so thinking he’s keeping her safe, as well as not getting in too deep with her, he texts Holly to break up with her. Yeah what a jerk, right? A girl’s gotta have more closure than that, so she tracks his ass down! Holly not letting him get away with a short little text as a breakup really made my day. Ok so the sex scenes helped quite a bit too.
I had two problems with this story though. One, Justin was ridiculously stubborn and a bit hypocritical. I wanted to reach into the book and slap him at times for being such a jerk, plus he was a little depressing at times. Two, the overall plot was a little shaky. The villain was ultimately after someone else, but Justin was supposedly a threat and in the way, but after being hurt and in the vicinity of the ultimate target, I can’t help but think how silly it was that Justin remained the target.
Overall, while the plot wasn’t quite solid, the romance is and it makes for a steamy read with a satisfying ending. The best part, however, is Myron, she’s so fun!

Let’s see, what qualities did A Man Worth Fighting For have…stupid man logic, magic, angst, sex, paranormals, suspense, action, more sex and surprisingly humans?!?!
A Man Worth Fighting For is book two in the Wiccan Haus collection. These are great short stories revolving around the Wiccan Haus Resort and Spa located off the coast of Maine. It is a special place for paranormals and humans alike; a place to go for spiritual and emotional healing.
This I just the kind of place that Justin needs after being shot and almost killed by one of his own team members. His career is over. His knee is permanently damaged and he now has to give up being a soldier. It was all he had and ever wanted. Since his career is over, he also decides to kill his relationship with his girlfriend Holly. He doesn’t want to burden her with having to take care of him. He has nothing to offer her, so he cuts her lose one of the most cowardly ways possible.
Holly can’t believe it…Justin is a coward! She can’t accept his breakup and is determined to hunt him down and have him explain his lame actions. She never expected to find him at a spa. Justin is a big strong manly military man and he is at a spa for spiritual and emotional healing, WHAT? Well by her calculations their conversation won’t take long, so off she goes to close this chapter of her life.
Neither expected the circumstances of their meeting. Justin was shocked and immediately went into protective mode and Holly was reminded just how much she cared about this frustrating man. They have a week to determine what they are going to do. Each must work through their inner problems and discover what is best for them. It’s really too bad that the interfering staff of Wiccan Haus won’t leave well enough alone.
Can you believe it? A Man Worth Fighting For is set at a primarily paranormal resort, ran by paranormals and the story is about two humans. I LOVED IT!! What a different twist. Yes, Justin knows about paranormals. In fact, he protects the rest of us by taking out paranormal rogues, but at the end of the day he is human and a damaged one at that. I never saw this twist coming…oops…I hope I didn’t ruin it for you.
Oh don’t let my little slip stop you from enjoying this great little treat. The couple is fun to read about, they have some great hot (and wet) sex and even the meddlesome staff is entertaining. You even get a little suspense and action thrown in. Ms. Daniels packaged this plot well and I immediately loved both Justin and Holly. There was just the right amount of everything in this book. It was all well balanced and believable. Editing was spot on, continuity was solid and the whole short story was just wonderful. What more could you want from a mini vacation?
