The last of his kind...
Rekkus is the last of the great Black Tiger weres, and he's happy to stay that way. Working as security for the Wiccan Haus, a magical spa for inner healing, he has enough danger to keep him busy. Unfortunately, the Fates are not content with him being comfortable.

Alone and discouraged...
Dana has walked away from everything--her fiancé, family, job, and apartment. A stay at the Wiccan Haus may be the only way she can move on. But what she finds isn't what she expects, nor is it what she thought she'd been seeking.

If they can open themselves up they might discover that being together can be better than being alone and learn that passion can burn in those who least expect it.
Meet the unusual residents of the Wiccan Haus.

The staff can get a little hairy, and not all of the guests eat what's served in the dining hall. But the Rowan siblings do what they can to make the resort a place of healing and peace, using all of their years of practice. At the Haus, where humans and paranormals reside side by side, everyone in need of the services are welcome. If some happens to fall in love then all the better.

Welcome to the Wiccan Haus.

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.

Something wiccan this way comes 5 GOLD WATCHES No matter how hard you run tonight, you can’t run from your destiny. the Fates had created her especially for him. The Fates were not simply cruel, they had a diabolical sense of humor. Damn the Fates. HOLY WOWZERS!! What a WICCANLY AWESOME book!! I fell all but instantly in love with Dana and loved how her back story is told, how we get to know how, and then understand just why I DID connect with her so fast! Then there’s Rekkus... all I'll say about him is that Rekkus causes quite the ruckus to multiple parts of me, so poor Dana doesn't have a hope in Haus!! Did I say "poor" Dana?? *snort* Ya, oh poor, poor Dana has to deal with a guy who's a tiger in and out of the bed! wink I love, Love, LOVE how everything comes to life with Dominique's storytelling! I love how honest & fresh her writing is! It takes the story to an even higher level. Given that this is The Book that sets up all future books for a multi-author series that all builds off of these characters & their resort I have to say I was BEYOND impressed & blown away by the amount of story Shifting Hearts has! Yes, it does establish the main people who own & run the resort, how the programs for the vacationers are set-up, scheduled & ran, how the paras and the "mere" humans are kept safe, etc. but Dominique works it into the story so perfectly & seamlessly, it wasn't until I started working on my review that I realized just how much knowledge, background & history she had worked into Rekkus & Dana's story WITHOUT taking anything away from them!! I'm a little embarrassed to say this, but it's my first Dominique Eastwick book! But what a SHIFTACULAR one to start with!! I am ABSOLUTELY in love, Love, LOVE with Dominique's writing style, the characters, the story itself and am SUPER EXCITED to have FINALLY read the story that kicked off this FAN-WICCAN-TASTIC series!! I have only read Merryn Dexter's Wiccan Haus books, so it's pretty cool to now see how it all began! I'm definitely eager to read ALL of them, but it will take some time to catch up! WHOOOT! wink Good thing Grandma was keeping watch on & for Dana!! Fates indeed!

A black tiger with a hot date with fate Dana almost fell into the wreck of a marriage her parents steered her into. She’d known Frank most of her life, but marriage? Now that was a whole other can of worms, one she found she wasn’t willing to open when she found herself saying “I don’t” at the altar. Frank was in total agreement. Her parents on the other hand told her they disowned her. So she traded in her Caribbean honeymoon for a week at the Wiccan Haus with her best friend Jessie. Rekkus is a tiger shifter. He is the reigning prince of the black tiger streak. In fact he is the last of the black tiger streak. He’s also head of security at the Wiccan Haus. A tragic past has left Rekkus with the conviction that he will never mate, but fate has other plans for him with a little help from Dana’s deceased grandmother. Although he recognizes Dana as his mate from the moment they meet, he’s determined he will avoid her for there is no way he would ever force a mating and Dana is human. She has no clue of the existence of paranorms. All good intentions aside, life and fate has a way of throwing them together and these two can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. That might have something to do with Rekkus being naked almost every time Dana runs into him. I mean who wouldn’t be slavering over a tall sexy tiger shifter? When Dana is confronted with his true nature she’ll have to determine if she can accept loving a man that’s part animal. But one thing she is bound to find out is loving this shifter is better than anything her uncaring family has ever given her. Now she only has to convince him. This was a great novella with interesting characters in a unique world. I’m looking forward to reading more in the series. I was gifted this book in exchange of an honest review.

4 1/2 STARS This is the first book of Ms. Eastwick's that I have read and I must say I found it to be an unexpected delight and fun first book in the series. The characters had great chemistry, are interesting, strong, stubborn, sexy and well written out. The store was fresh, intriguing, had a little danger, exciting and just an all around a joy to read. The writing was smooth and energetic. The book grabs you from page one and doesn't let you go until the story has been told. I look forward to reading more of the series. Good book !!! I recommend it to everyone. ***Gifted a Copy to review***L.

Rekkus is the last of the great Black Tiger weres. He's working at a magical spa where both humans and the Paras come. His job is to keep them apart, but when he meets Dana something unexpected happens. Fate has brought him his mate who is human. Their desire and need for each other is fierce, but can he convince her to stay with him? Rekkus and Dana were compelling characters. I love seeing them together. Their dialogue and their interaction were very sensual and humorous. The Wiccan Haus and its island provided the perfect setting. I like the secondary characters and hope to learn more about them in future stories. Shifting Hearts is a fast-paced, passionate tale of fated love and a mystical world unknown to humans. It pulled me in from page one and I finished it in one sitting. Dominique Eastwick did a great job with this story. I was gifted a copy of Shifting Hearts in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

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.
