Overview

Two charmed and sexy novellas set in Mysteria, the beguiling little Colorado town where magic is in the air and passions run high—and not because of the altitude . . .



Hundreds of years ago, in the mountains of Colorado, Mysteria was founded by a random act of demonic kindness. Today, it’s a magnet for the supernatural, where magic quietly coexists with the mundane world. But now two sisters are about to unleash a tempest of seduction that will have tongues wagging for centuries to come . . .



The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them

Genevieve is a witch with a bad case of unrequited love for a local bar owner. But is his sudden change of heart the result of a love potion—or a literally breathtaking passion?



A Tawdry Affair

Glory, witch of love, wants her man. Unfortunately, he barely knows she exists—until a magic pen brings her creative fantasies of seduction, sex, and delicious revenge to life.

    Normally I love Gena Showalter's books, but this set was just awful.  The stories didn't flow well; it kept jumping from person to person.  It was hard to like the heroines in these stories too.  They were both kind of whiny and pathetic.  They both kept throwing themselves at the heroes even after being constantly rejected.  And then when the men finally showed some attention to them, they just forgave everything.  It was sad.  I wish I hadn't spent my money on this.

    Not her greatest

    I love gena showalter but this book didnt hold up to her usual work. The copyright is from a few years ago but the writing seemed like something from a very inexperienced author. I was expecting more even though its a novella.

    ~Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    With Gena’s usual fun and sexy style it was full of energy and I read it with a smile on my face. ~ Under the Covers

    This is an anthology set in the small town of Mysteria, a haven for any kind of magical creature, witches, vampires, shifters, fae you name it and it lives in Mysteria. The Tawdry sisters are witches and Mysteria has always been their home, and now they plan on seducing their manusing any magical means possible…

    The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them

    Genevieve has loved Hunter since she was 17 years old, but although she could swear he feels the same for her he keeps pushing her away. She may now be bordering on some…stalkerish extremes to get his attention, but Evie knows he feels something. So what harm could a short dress, a love potion and a wish possible do?

    This was a great short story! With Gena’s usual fun and sexy style it was full of energy and I read it with a smile on my face. With very few pages some interesting and intriguing characters were established and a steamy romance heated up my kindle screen.

    A Tawdry Affair

    Glory wants revenge on the man who cruelly rejected her. Luckily her sister is a witch of vengeance and gives her a magic pen, everything she writes will come true for a short period of time. Unluckily she still desires him, so what would be better vengeance then seducing and rejecting him?

    This was my favourite story in the anthology, Glory was funny and sarcastic, just my kind of gal. Plus I love a heroine with a few body issues, especially when she gets the tall and sexy guy. The sexual tension really heated up in this one, and once again I hate a great sexy and sweet short story that couldn’t get enough of.

    This was a good anthology, it was fairly short as it only contained two novellas but I liked both stories, when normally anthologies can be a little hit and miss. I would recommend this if you are a Gena fan and if you are looking for something light and fun to read.
