You know its time to stop writing a series wheh they keep geeting shorter and shorter. The series started with 500 and more pages then 300 then 100. I think the author is grasping at straws. I miss reading about sage where the series started. This book should have been free.

Sam decides to save her sister by fighting in the Demon Games, but first she has to survive long enough to get there. Strangely she meets a demon named Geo who wants to help her. Long story short, they fall in love because he doesn’t want to be a demon and she is a witch. Of course there is a lot more to it than that, but you’ll have to read for yourself. This is such a romantic book. I loved that Geo was willing to give up everything for her. The idea that love can conquer all isn’t a new one, but in Destiny Bewitched the author creates a charming, unique story that shows a different angle to the story. I loved it. It was well written with characters that brimmed with life, humor, angst and love. I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.

Sam is a witch. Her family has been beating, abusing and neglecting her for years. Nikki her younger sister, who Sam has protected and loved where her family has failed. Nikki has been kidnapped. She knows her fathers debt to a secret underworld fighting ring, is why she was taken and so Sam heads into the underworld. Geo, a half demon demigod, stumbles across a girl being attached by 3 werewolves. She is holding her own but knows she can not win against the 3. He says to himself keep your head down, it is none of your business. He is drawn to her but doesn't want to get involved. Until he hears her cry out and sees she is a witch. Geo was banished to the underworld as a punishment. Maybe, if the witch talks to Gaia(mother earth) and she says how much he has helped the girl, Gaia can get him out of the underworld and back home. So after rescuing the red head beautiful women named Sam, they make a deal. Geo will get Sam to the games, so she can get her sister. Sam will contact Gaia and tell her how much he has helped her. Too bad he plans to leave her there when he goes back home, and she knows she can't contact Gaia because her family is cursed. So the two travel together. Dangers all around them and both having lies of their own. Will the truth come out? If Geo finds out will he forgive Sam and will Geo be able to walk away from the women he is growing to love? This was the first book I have read by Leia Shaw. If you like action, romance, and more action, you will LOVE this book. I couldn't put the book down and it made me cry. Both signs of a really good book. The love story between Geo and Sam is sweet, endearing and very funny at times. You watch their love blossom and grow, as they fight through the underworld. Sam is forever wanting to get to her sister and will do anything to get to her. Even it means lying to a man who is helping her. The story is fast and filled with action, from the fighting in the area and under the sheets. You are rooting for the two to the very end. I also liked the set up for the next book. Wonderful story..thanks for the great read! Will be watching for the next one.

Enjoyed this book. Was a fun, easy read. I felt the building of the relationship could have been flushed out a bit more but overall was enjoyable. What we see going into the next installment seems promising as other good read. Looking forward to it.

I really enjoyed this book. I really liked the way Leia Shaw gave Samamtha every day dialogue. Sam came out with phrases I use and it made the book relatable, and if you like steamy love scenes ... this book is for you. Now I want to read the others in the series. Thanks, Leia.

Fantastically written! Destiny Bewitched is the fourth book in the "Shadows of Destiny" series by Leia Shaw, and I hadn't read any of the other books. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up with the story, and would be missing key elements, but I wasn't. I was able to jump into the book head first and keep up with everything that was going on. It's part of a series, but stand-alone enough that you can pick it up and read it without reading any of the others first and not be lost. Destiny Bewitched is written from two points of view: Geo's and Samantha's, and the switches between the two are incredibly easy to see and pick up on. Sometimes, switching between narratives can be confusing for the reader if it's not done well, but Leia did a fantastic job of showing the switches and making them easy to follow. With just the right mix of romance, violence, and head strong characters, Destiny Bewitched is a wonderful read, and hard to put down.

Love, Love this book. Geo and Sam are a sexy, funny couple. There is plenty of action, humor and romance to make this book one of the best I have read recently. You can read it as a stand alone with out a problem. It will only interest you to go back and read the other books in this series. Leia has started what will end up being a classic series of books. I will gladly read more and patiently await, Aedan, Maddox and Gethin's books. Great fun, pick it up for a good summer read.
