I don't normally go much for shape-shifting in erotic romances, too much room for yik. No yiks here, only yum! Rekkus is a wonderful hero--very alpha (and the shape-shifting adds to that nicely), yet romantic and considerate. The heroine, Dana, was likable in her insecurities and the way she handled discovering the secret of the island plausible. The development of the relationship felt real even though it was (of necessity) quick. I'm normally not into any novellas, either, as I just like more plot and world-building, character development, etc. than there is space for in shorter stories and this one is only 21,500 words. But the concept of Wiccan Haus--a resort/spa where paranormals and humans come to heal--with stories by different authors about the place--was too hard to resist. It was on my TBR list before I won it in a contest. I'm even more enthused by the premise now that Ms. Eastwick has introduced me to it. I've read a previous novel by her, so I know that she can write very sweet romances that are also quite hot. This story reinforced that. I'm looking forward to the next books in the series.

Vampires, witches, and weres, oh my! This was a sweet and sexy novella, filled with shape-shifting yumminess and cameos from a couple witches and vampires. I’m partial to the cat shifters to begin with, so the hero being a were-tiger was the icing on the cake. It was also a relief to read a romance, especially an erotic romance, where the heroine wasn’t supermodel stick thin and perfect, but was still plenty sexy. There’s not a whole lot of storyline other than a little background on our main characters, so the focus is all on them as they get very friendly with one another.
My only real complaint is that I want more, because the atmosphere created such a fun story. It is a series, though by different authors, so I’ll have to check out the next one to see how things play out. The way it’s set up, stories could be written for the owners of Wiccan Haus, but from the looks of it, so far it looks like the sequels will focus on guests. It’ll be interesting to see how the different authors depict the same world and incorporate the background characters each time. Overall, a quick, light-hearted, fun erotic read.
Wish this place were real. I loved Rekkus and can't wait to read more about the island and its residents and I have alread read a few more in the serie :). This is a great introduction to the series (most of the book are written by different authors), but like with any good book I wish it had been longer.Was this review helpful?
