Something About Witches by Joey W. Hill

Joey W. Hill thrills in a dazzling new spellbinder of modern-day witchcraft, ancient evil, and the magical tricks men and women play in the name of love . . .


Ruby Night Divine is a gun-shop owner. She’s also a witch who knows magic can fail. She’s experienced it firsthand, with full-blown tragic consequences. Smith & Wesson is a whole hell of a lot more reliable, and nothing’s as cathartic as the ability to put a few holes in the things that piss you off. Like Derek Stormwind.

A powerful sorcerer, Derek is determined to get to the bottom of why Ruby pushed him away and ran three years before. He also needs her help.  A coven needs training to fight a demon and his minions. While Ruby is willing to do it, she’s sure it’s just a ruse to get back in her heart—and her bed. The thing is, that’s where she wants him. Unfortunately, her bed’s already made, she’s this close to losing her soul, and she fears nothing can save her. Not Derek. Not even Smith & Wesson.

Amazing book.  I truly wish I am gifted at writing feedback, but I'm not.  I will say that I have enjoyed every single book of Joey Hill's that I've read and plan to continue until I've read her entire collection.  She is gifted at writing astoundingly vivid action and emotion.  My only real problem is that I have to take a breather and read some fluff between her books because each carries such an emotion impact.  Very, very well done.

This is the first book in a great new series by Joey W. Hill. I found this book not only very entertaining but also full of wonderful information and facts. This books really does have everything you are looking for in a great romance; and strong heroine, a super-sexy hero (that you can't help falling in love with) and a plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Overall, this is an amazing book by a amazing author!!!

This is a wonderful book! I have read all her books and this maybe the best yet. Ms Hill can write the nastiest, dirtiest, filthiest uncomfortable sex scenes (not so much in this book) and then turn around and write the most beautiful touching poignant heartbreaking scenes of human emotion youve ever read. She is so talented. Theres a simple scene in this book where Derrick and Ruby are sitting in a sunny kitchen sharing breakfast, its just magic. I just think sometimes with all the sex, people fail to recognize what a fabulous talented writter she is. And man! Can she ever write a sex scene!

Our Review [by Debbie – LITERAL ADDICTION’s Associate Reviewer]: I read this book the day it came out. I was excited but apprehensive because I LOVED Joey W. Hill’s Vampire Queen Series, and had wondered about Derek. The biggest worry I had was that by making this a mass market PNR, it wouldn’t have that perfect balance of heat and heart and pain and pleasure that I have found in her other books. I really shouldn’t have worried; she grabbed me with the very first line of the book and kept me there to the end. So when I heard that Michelle still needed to read and review it for her upcoming event I told her that she HAD to get to it because I knew how much she would love it but, that I would re-read it and write one also. After setting aside my new releases, I started Something about Witches and was again struck by the magic that is Joey’s writing. I was swept away into the story and saw so much I missed that 1st time reading it. I think I might have enjoyed it even more this 2nd time... If you've read Joey's Vampire Queen series, then you might remember the hero, Derek. He is the sorcerer who helped Mason set up the tomb for his late wife and also helped Mal set up his island. Derek is a Guardian of the Light and has been alive more years than some of the Seven Wonders of the World. He is the Hero of Hero's, a Dominate Alpha man, a modern day knight, a cowboy - complete with jeans, boots, hat and a duster over his broad shoulders that seem to be able to hold the problems of the world. He had been a part of Ruby's life since she was a small child; always showing up when she needed him and always giving her that support by being exactly what she needed at the time. Well almost always, except for the one time she really needed him and he was gone saving the world. He's been trying to figure out what happened to cause her to use magic to send him away since that day, but with a coven in need of magical education to repair a fault line, he as the perfect reason to try to get back into Ruby's life. Ruby is a survivor. She has been running her gun shop, Arcane Shot, for 3 years since breaking things off with Derek. She cut herself off since that horrible day with Derek and hasn't allowed anybody to get into her heart. Her best friends Raina and Ramona don't even know what really happened. Her years of being in her mother's shadow and the neglect she experienced, have just added to the pain from that day and the loss of Derek. She's dealt, by feeding that emotional pain with physical pain from a man she met at a gun show named Mikheal. When Derek walks into her shop with a job for her she almost turns him down, but when she realizes that she might bet the chance to get vengeance for what happened 3 years ago, she agrees to help. Derek and Ruby have a sexual chemistry that burns the page. I was so drawn into their relationship that even when the sexual experiences were tamer than other books I have read by Joey I still was extremely affected by them. Throughout the book you get to see a lot of what a “modern day” coven might be like. The women in this story are amazing and you want them to be your friends too. I loved reading about the different parts of witchcraft that aren’t all sparkly and exciting and the history of women and magic. I was amazed though by how exciting Joey made the magical fights. I think it might have some of the most exciting magical fights that I have read, at least lately. BDSM was a large part of the storyline of her Vampire Queen series. I wasn’t sure if it would have a part in this one but it was, just in a softer way. She showed the feeling and emotion that can come when it is a part of a relationship. Joey in my opinion showed that BDSM doesn't always have to be as extreme as it was in her Vampire Queen series. One quote from this book that really stood out showed this... Ruby is thinking about Derek and his dominance, “every time he won her surrender, that boulder of responsibility, guilt and insecurity was removed, letting her breathe” I tried not to give too many spoilers out in this review, but I had to give a bit to give a good overview. I have to say that this book was a surprising fave of mine this year. I am looking forward to May 1st when In the Company of Witches comes out. I'm excited about Raina's story and look forward to how Joey will have Mikheal redeem himself. I gave this book 5 skulls and would recommend this to any Paranormal Romance or Erotic reader.

I enjoyed the book a great deal I just was not fond of the lead female character. She was a bit much, and even though closer to the end it comes out why she is this way. I still feel that she took everything even her angry to far. I can say that I want to red the other books in this series.

I am an avid fan of anything Joey W. Hill writes. I love her Vampire Queen Series, Nature of Desire Series and The Knights of the Boardroom Series. Although this was not my favorite, I cannot wait to read the next installment "In the Company of Witches".

This book was simply amazing. It is Ms. Hill's first "mass market" paperback. I had mistakenly thought the "mass market" might result in less of an emotional impact compared to her other work. Boy was I wrong! As you may have read in the publisher's description, the main characters of this novel are Derek Stormwind and Ruby Night Devine. Derek is the embodiment of strength, bad ass and unconditional love. He is wonderful, but it is Ruby that I expect will come back to my thoughts for many days, weeks, and months to come. Her flaws, her strengths and her loss are so real and so true. I want to invite her to my kitchen table, have a cup of tea, and give her a hug! That said, there are also some incredible hot interactions between Derek and Ruby that you won't want to miss. If you want a book that will have you laughing, have you crying, and have you thrilled to be in the company of strong, smart sexy characters, buy this book.

If you are familiar with Joey’s work, this book departs from her more erotic writing but it still sizzles with her wonderful style of putting you in the hearts and minds of her characters. This is a contemporary romance/suspense that flows beautifully. Derek and Ruby have great chemistry both in the bedroom and in the magical sense which is what the story is based on. The book is well written and grabs you from the very first chapter. Derek and Ruby work through their emotional issues as the book progresses, and it is a wonderful journey of two people that get a second chance at their HEA. I loved the magic aspects of the story, and the glimpse of favorite characters from her other works. Joey proves once again she is an exceptional writer in any genre.

Ms. Hill's first mass-market book, is all that I've come to expect of this author. It has sexy hero, beautiful heroine, nasty bad guy all in a well written book. the book introduces Derek, a sorcerer, a Guardian of Light, and his .elationship with Ruby Night Devine, a witch. The book explores the loss of a child and the way a mother deals with it. I will definilty be getting the nxt. book in the series and the one after that.

Something About Witches (Arcane Shot #1) by Joey W. Hill I’ve read Joey W. Hill’s Knights of the Boardroom series and am working my way through her Vampire Queen series. I even have the first book in her Nature of Desire series on my TBR shelf. So when I found Something About Witches at my bookstore I grabbed it. I’d heard it was to be more main stream. Everything is relative I guess. Ms. Hill does not write brain candy or fluff. The Knights of the Boardroom series starts out hard and ends OMG. The Vampire Queen series is dark and often brutal (but it is about vampires after all). Something About Witches takes place in the same world as the Vampire Queen series but it isn’t exactly a spin-off. It is a book about choices, good vs. evil, love and redemption and like every Joey W. Hill book it was well written, intelligent, with smokin’ hot love scenes. I am not Wiccan and don’t know much about Wicca. I am sure that I missed something when reading this because of that but not enough to take away from the story and I did learn a thing or two. All in all another great read. Will be adding In The Company of Witches (Arcane Shot #2) to my wish list.

Something About Witches is the new series written by Joey W Hill and her first mass market book. It is planned to be a trilogy about three witches. The main characters of this first book are Ruby, a witch who has started using Dark powers for some unknown reason, and Derek, a centuries old Light Guardian and sorcerer. I highly recommend this book. Derek is a wonderful hero. He is strong and loves Ruby despite the darkness that she has growing in her. Ruby is a great heroine. She is fighting to keep the most precious thing in her life safe even as doing that makes her slowly sink into the mire of darkness. This story is so well told. I was completely pulled into the story and could almost feel the darkness pulling Ruby in and corrupting her spirit. The love Derek and her friends have for her is unmistakable and yet she is so isolated and in such danger. It is wonderful to see Derek break down the walls she constructs until he finally gets to the truth that she has hidden from everyone. There are some great action scenes and I love the details provided about the witches in the coven that Derek and Ruby help. But the essence of this book is about Ruby being redeemed from the Darkness by the love that Derek and her friends provide and her own growth of understanding. I can hardly wait for the next book, In the Company of Witches, to come out. We have already met the two main characters: Mikhael, the Dark Guardian, and Raina, Ruby's friend.

Chases a rabbit. She runs just a bit faster than it and goes around a bush and comes out in front of it. She stops and faces it. She leaps on it and kills it with a bite to the neck. She buries it to collect later. She marks the territory. - cloverwhisper
