Overview

Experience Joey W. Hill’s scintillating blend of modern-day witchcraft, ancient evil, and the magical tricks men and women play in the name of love…

All witch and part succubus, savvy businesswoman Raina has converted a Southern plantation house into an extremely profitable old-fashioned bordello. Because of her abilities as a witch, the demons under Raina’s protection can feed off the sexual energy of their clients without killing them—definitely a good thing for repeat business.

But when a rogue incubus shows up on Raina’s doorstep begging for asylum, the witch’s well-run business is put in jeopardy. The incubus has stolen an object of great power from Lucifer, and Underworld Dark Guardian Mikhael will do anything to get it back—even if it means incinerating the incubus on Raina’s porch to get the answers he seeks.

Not to be trifled with, Raina enters a dangerous match of wits with Mikhael to achieve their mutual goals—only to discover that the reluctant attraction between them is the most hazardous game of all…

If you haven't read the first story in this series, "Something About Witches", I recommend reading them in order, however this book is great as a standalone also. The description sums the book up nicely so I won't repeat that. I highly recommend reading this book, you will not be disappointed. If you follow Ms. Hill's work, you will find this book close to the style we all know and love her for writing. The chemistry between Mikhael and Raina sizzles and leaps off the pages. Yes, that translates to very hot sex!! This is a contemporary story, and there are some laugh out loud moments along the way that all women can relate too. The story flows very well and keeps the reader turning the page for more throughout the entire book. While there are some moments of "will there be a happily ever after", don't despair, the books ends very well and you will find this is another keeper for your bookshelf. I can't wait for the next offering in this series.....

I just loved this book from start to finish. It was something that I wasn't expecting and the book proved to be surprising in such a wonderful way. This is a must read for anyone with even a slight interest in Paranormal fiction. The characters are strong and complex. The plot is fast paced and full of twists and turns. The love story leaves you with that warm fuzzy feeling we all enjoy. My only word of warning is this......once to start reading this book you will not be able to stop, so please budget your time appropriately. :)

Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Mind-blowingly good sex but a lot of it bogs down the plot. When the plot moves along it is a good story.Opening Sentence: Something was coming.The Review:Raina is half-witch/half-succubus and as such she runs a brothel that is a safe haven for some incubi and succubi. She has created wards around her home that helps protect them from killing the humans they feed off of. She has a familiar, Cathair, a raven. He sometimes delivers some funny moments in this serious story. At the beginning of In the Company of Witches, Raina feels an incubus running towards her home. She has many protections in place to ward off and detect strangers on her property. The incubus, Isaac, is being chased by a Dark Guardian, Mikhael. Isaac has stolen something from Hell and Lucifer wants it back.Raina offers Isaac protection from Mikhael as long as he divulges the information on what he took, where it is at and who he stole it for. Unfortunately Isaac is more scared of the enemy then Mikhael so he doesn¿t talk. Raina offers up temporary sanctuary hoping Isaac will change his tune and stay on as one of Raina¿s wards. Mikhael believes that whoever is after Isaac will show up at the brothel so he refuses to leave. He offers up more wards for protection of Sweet Dreams, Raina¿s bordello, in order to keep his eye on Isaac.Mikael has been a Dark Guardian for many years. He is also a half breed like Raina, but instead he is half angel. There is something about Raina that he wants. He believes that they are more alike than Raina would like to believe. He knows that there is something deep down inside Raina that needs healing and he uses their best assets (meaning sexual intercourse) to help Raina through her problems.There is a lot of sex (as if that is possible) at the beginning of this book. They are like a couple on their honeymoon at first, just exploring each other¿s bodies and what they can handle, sometimes pushing the eroticism envelope. Of course, there is a purpose here. Raina has some issues from her past that need to be overcome and do weight heavily on the final conflict. The sex really weighs the plotline down at first, but about halfway through the book the plot picks up and moves along.The scenes where Mikhael and Raina hang out in town are probably my favorite part of this book besides the final battle. You get to know a lot more about their characters, even a little bit about what makes them tick. Mikhael is not truly evil. He is dark but helps the light side. Raina is light but realizes that she may just have a bit of darkness inside of her. (I really wish I had someone like Mikhael at a movie theater frying people¿s phone batteries or at least just blocking them from working.) The story is told just from their points of view.Mikhael is not like he was in Something About Witches. He is not the crass masochist he comes off as in the first book, something I was a little wary of coming into this story. He reads people and can give them what they need in certain situations and that is not what Raina needs. He still likes to play at master but not to the extent of SAW.I still really enjoyed the world that Joey W. Hill has created with these supernatural creatures, learning about the Dark Guardians and Succubi more in depth. Places in the Underworld are explored, adding more layers to this supernatural world, even though the bulk of the story is told from Raina¿s house and brothel Sweet Dreams.Overall, after the slow start to In the Company of Witches, I really enjoyed the story. I was enraptured by Mikhael and Raina¿s relationship. If I complained too much about the sex scenes, I am sorry because it actually suited this couple¿s story and background. It would be something they would do and have no qualms about it.Notable Scene:¿I offer very few, Jorge. The invitation is always there for you.¿¿Perhaps not. I have heat burns between my shoulder blades. The man turned then, giving Mikhael a d

I was greatly surprised by how much I enjoyed the 2nd installment to this series and could not read it fast enough. The 2nd book was so much better than the first. I was not a huge fan of the 1st book and was a little disappointed by the quality of the writing as I usually love all things by Joey W. Hill. Plus, I found Mikhael really disturbing. Yet, this 2nd book made me understand Mikhael a lot better and actually had me rooting for him and Raina. I really hope there is a 3rd book in this series.

This is Book 2 of the series. The first book, Something About Witches, I also give five stars. You could have a great reading weekend reading one right after the other. Joey Hill writes a bad boy with a loving heart better than anyone.

This new paranormal series really does have it all. To quote the book: “A little magic keeps things interesting.” Raina is strong, funny, sexy and smart. Mikhael is a bad boy who works from the dark side for the ultimate good of all. He happens to be completely sexy to boot! The characters develop admirably over the course of the story. As they grow in their understanding of themselves, their story pulls you in further. The characters have challenges that make you doubt they will ever find their happily ever after, but they do. The ending, however, is unforced, and really, brings the reader, and the characters where they need to be! It's probably not necessary to have read the first book, Something About Witches, but the main characters from the first book play prominent roles in this story. (And I really liked that book as well, so if you haven't read it, you might want to consider both!)
