Who says getting eaten by a shark is a bad thing?

That Old Black Magic, Book 3

Willa Jameson is having one whopper of an identity crisis. Odd memory flashes that aren’t hers. A sultry voice in her head that’s obsessed with sex. Even weirder, she finds herself in the jaws of a rogue leviathan, dragged to the bottom of the ocean—and rescued by a hunky…shark?

The last thing Sheriff Max Truitt expects to find on his daily, deep-Atlantic patrol is a human—especially one who breathes underwater. Compelled to take her home, he waits for the beauty to wake up and reveal her name. Instead he’s treated to a punch in the nose, then a sexy romp hot enough to boil water.

The next morning, embarrassed by the sizzling, scandalous things the voice in her head drove her to do, Willa slips away. But if there’s one thing a determined shark excels at, it’s tracking his favorite meal.

Solving the mystery that is Willa is no simple task. When they finally unlock a dangerous secret hidden deep in her subconscious, it drives a wedge between them…and puts them in a desperate race against an evil that seeks to rain down a watery Armageddon on all mankind.

Warning: This book does not contain sex with a puffer fish. There’s not even sex with a seahorse. However, there’s plenty of smoking-hot lovin’ with a shark. And even a steamy M/F/M threesome. So slap on your snorkels and swim fins, things are about to get wet and wild.

    Fantastic Read

    Jodi Redford has a way with hot and sexy shifter stories, and this one is no exception.

    Willa Jameson realizes her life has gone totally out of control when she finds herself being dragged to the depths of the Atlantic in the tentacles of a leviathan. She has been having flashes of memory that she doesn't recognize, and a voice in her head urges her to do naughty things with the sexy and hot shark shifter who rescued her from the deep.

    When Willa and Max track down her Aunt Aurele, Willa learns that her life as she remembers it is all a lie-she isn't just a powerful witch, she is actually a nymph, and the only living descendent of the royal family of Atlantis. Even her memories of her parents' accident are false; they were actually murdered by an evil woman wanting to seize the throne. But can Willa do what is necessary to break through the memory wipe and regain the truth of who, and what, she really is? Can Max, her sexy shark, and his friend Boone take her to the heights of passion needed to release her inner nymph? Can they defeat the evil Reva once and for all?

    I love this world Ms. Redford has crafted, with the unique mix of normal humans, shifters, witches and other strange and interesting beings. This is the third visit to this world by Ms Redford, and I enjoyed catching up with Willa, who was instrumental in the happy ever after in book two.

    Willa Jameson is a confused young woman, with voices in her head and memories she doesn't understand. She is a strong and talented witch, but she soon realizes that there is something more inside, and she becomes more determined than ever to uncover the truth. I enjoyed watching as she came to terms with each new piece of the past that had been taken from her, and loved her determination to regain the memories that had been erased.

    Maxwell 'Max' Truitt is the Sheriff in his part of the Atlantic. As a shark shifter, he patrols the Atlantic waters, keeping the area safe for humans and shifters alike. He is strong and sexy and loyal to his friends and family. I liked his protective streak where Willa was concerned, and his total inability to resist her inner nymph when she popped in for a quick visit. I loved his noble idea that he wasn't good enough for Willa, who is a princess, and how that idea clashed with the man who felt that she was his.

    There are several intertwining threads to this one. Willa's emerging nymph, the secrets of the past, and the danger still ready to pounce all come together to provide edge of your seat reading. There are several very hot scenes between Willa and Max, courtesy of the nymph, and the scene where Max and Boone finally break through the mind wipe to bring Willa's past and present into alignment is one of the hottest I've read. The secondary characters are all well crafted, and I hope that Boone will get his own story somewhere down the line as well. Do Max and Willa find her Aunt Aurele, defeat Reva, and find a happy ever after? You will need to read Maximum Witch to find the answer to that one.

    Another MUST read from Redford!

    Jodi Redford raises the stakes . and succeeds! Can we talk about that wicked hot cover for just a second? I was practically drooling all over myself before I had read the first page. How frickin hot is that gorgeous body with that sexy tattoo? And I love how the hands are wrapped around him, but the rest is unseen. Sensual? Absolutely!

    Personally, I have read a lot of books with shifters, but this is the first time I have experienced ocean-dwelling shifters and then some. You name it, seals, nymphs, sharks, seagulls (yeah, I said seagulls), mermaids, walruses, puffer fish, leviathans . makes for a very interesting cast. This story picks up where Book 2, The Seven Year Witch ends with poor Willa being led against her own will toward the ocean; a place she is deathly afraid of. Max is both Sheriff of the area and on rounds that night when he encounters Willa being dragged deep into the ocean by a leviathan. Max rescues her and discovers that she is breathing under water, but an unconscious Willa has no recollection of the feat when she comes to.

    Eventually Max pieces together a few cold cases with his vast knowledge of the Atlantean population. Yep - as in Atlantis! I have to admit, I was wondering how a witch story with the heroine in imminent peril was going to work for the third time in a row, but the Atlantis spin took everything to a whole new level. No stale reused story plots here! I also liked how parts of Book 1 tied into Book 3 allowing the components to all three stories click together. That said, with Book 2, you would be better off reading Book 1 first. However, with Maximum Witch, a reader could read it on its own and be able to understand without any gaping holes left wide open.

    I do have a few questions though. How did Willa get away from being Domino's assistant? I mean, impending danger was probably automatic for a leave of absence or something. But one day she is working and the next day she's not; nor do we hear anything else about working for Domino. Anyone who has read the previous books knows Domino is NOT going to allow that to just happen. And what is with Boone and Justin? Blushes and what not all over the place, but nothing developed or was explained in plain text. Do we have a possible Book 4 in plotting phase? Also, Willa is best friends with Marabella, so where does she go? Wouldn't she want to spill her guts to her best friend? Just seems like we would have seen more of Marabella during the emotional turmoil of the last few chapters. Now these questions are not paramount to the immediate story of Max and Willa, they are just little nags in the back of my head.

    Now, a shifting shark? I too had my brows raised a time or two. By the end of the story - errr - more like by a very creative bathtub scene, the ever talented Max, water manipulating extraordinaire, had me begging for a Tiger shark of my own! Kudos to Redford for keeping my interest with creative spins that broke outside the box, entertaining me from start to finish.
