Favorite Quote: "You know it's true, Rissa. You're the queen of my everything. You have me. All of me. Heart, body and soul." Review: I was pleasantly surprised with this book; Book 2 in the That Old Black Magic series. Sometime a follow-up novel falls short, or seems a bit too much like the first one. Not in this case! Redford kept up the action once again from start to finish. Constant excitement in both overcoming obstacles and hot, steamy sex scenes. In Book 1, That Voodoo You Do, we were introduced to supporting characters Clarissa and Logan with hints sporadically tossed in that there was another case of mutual attraction denied to the bitter end. Thanks to Griffin and Jemma in the preceding book, the ban has been lifted, which had previously forbidden witches to fraternize with their familiars. The good being that complications were avoided between to dependent relationships, the bad being those that developed strong feelings faced dire consequences for an act of intimacy; not even allowed to speak of love. Clarissa finds herself in a pickle with a debt coming due while trying desperately to ignore the seductive advances of her wolf familiar, Logan. Eventually, she decides to enjoy her spoils for the remainder of her time (one short week) prior to her imminent death. Clarissa just fails to mention any of this guaranteed hindrance toward a permanent future to Logan. Confused by the retracting and resurrection of Clarissa's invisible, though effective emotional shield, Logan sets out to claim Clarissa as his mate for life guided by his wolf sense. But will death be the ultimate blockade that the two cannot break through? Read it yourself to find out! I honestly have no complaints about this book. Knowing a bit of history of Clarissa and Logan from Book 1 allowed an easy understanding of explanations in Book 2. The book flowed easily throughout, facilitating a quick and easy read. What I loved about this book was the correlation between the seven deadly sins and a little message relating how nurturing any of those sins, however slight, can effect life in a tremendous way. The message was subtle, but compelling. This book also briefly incorporates the family dynamic and how lasting effects can damage when players within the fold are out of whack. I also enjoyed getting to revisit Griff and Jemma and their pending nuptuals. Logan's southern drawl and fierce dedication to his life mate is both endearing and erotic. **Le sigh** Don't we all dream of such devotion? Pick up your copy and continue the adventure of witches, shifting familiars, a creepy demon, and a love destined from the start.

This is Jodi Redford's second visit to this wonderful world, filled with witches, their familiars and all kinds of beings we don't often see. What would you do to protect those you care about? That is the decision Clarissa Miles had to make, and now the payment for that safety is coming due. Seven years ago, Clarissa sold her soul to protect her father, and now the demon that holds the contract is calling it in. She has just seven days left to put her affairs in order, before leaving all she holds dear behind for a 'life' with Seven, the demon holding her contract for her soul. Ever since becoming her familiar, Logan Scott has made his desire for Clarissa clear, and she is tired of denying her feelings for him. She decides she will indulge in one brief and passionate fling with Logan, before she is gone forever. But she didn't take into account the determination of one very hot and sexy werewolf to keep what is his, and Clarissa is definitely his. Can Logan and the coven find a way to defeat Seven and bring Clarissa home? Will Clarissa save one soul from the demon before going? And will the coven discover just what Seven is before it's too late? This is a terrific follow up to Ms. Redford's first of this series, and I have been waiting for Clarissa and Logan's story. I enjoyed seeing the characters from book one again, and seeing the progress they have made. Clarissa is determined to be strong, and face her choice without complaint. I like that she makes no excuses or apologies for what she has done, and that she is determined to face Seven with dignity, but she doesn't count on losing her heart to Logan. I enjoyed watching as Clarissa decided to strike out and stop Seven from claiming more souls, even as she knows she is doomed. I loved the strength she had throughout this story. Logan is a hot and sexy werewolf, determined to claim his mate. And he knows, deep down where it counts, that Clarissa is the only one for him. I loved watching as he gets what he wants, only to realize that he wants forever, and then discovers he is going to lose her to Seven if he can't figure out how to beat the demon once and for all. I love that Logan never gives up, and fights for what he wants. This is a story of love overcoming all obstacles, and the lengths we will go to beat evil. I enjoyed watching the coven unite to save one of their own, and it was fun visiting the coven house and seeing Gloria and Mrs. Peach. The secondary characters are a delight, and the humor here is integral to the story at times. I loved seeing the love that was between all of the characters, and the fight for a happy ever after was definitely a life or death battle. But it is so worth the journey, and I wholeheartedly recommend this book. Do we ever discover just what kind of being Seven really is? Read The Seven Year Witch to find out.

Holy angst, Batman. What happened to the humor?I enjoyed several individual scenes, but overall the characters, worldbuilding and plotting were kind of a mess... which I probably would have overlooked if I'd been laughing like I was in the first book in this series.1. The whole deal with the devil scenario seemed like an extended suicide fantasy. Clarissa never really tries to figure a way out of it, except for some half-assed attempts when her marker's called due. All of her actions make it seem like her nickname should be Queen of Denial and Despair instead of ice mistress. She's lived with her coven for around a decade but doesn't trust any of them enough to ask for help? Or respect them enough to let them know she's dying in a week? It's all avoid-avoid-avoid, oh woe is me. Even her relationship with Logan seems more based on self-destruction than respect or affection or even simple desire.2. How does no one in her coven know anything about her family? Based on the first book, I thought the magic was passed down by bloodlines.3. Also based on the first book, I thought witches magically called their familiars from 'Loa-something. In this book, it sounds like Clarissa filled out a classified ad and Logan was the best candidate of those who showed up.4. Logan had apparently been falling in love with Clarissa for several years, but engaged in near-daily stranger hook-ups. As soon as he was freed from the no fraternizing rule he made his move on Clarissa, but I got the feeling she thought of him as a flighty playboy by that point. (You'd think that would be something they'd talk about, but no.) He also likes to ride a motorcycle and works in a bar. Other than that, he's an endlessly patient, well-endowed blank slate with no apparent history or problems of his own. Based on what we're shown in this book, I have no idea what he sees in Clarissa.5. I do like that Logan doesn't make Clarissa his mate without her permission. A sign of his respect for her that I never see reciprocated.6. I have no idea what the purpose of a familiar is other than errand-boy. They're all shapeshifters, but that pretty much only seems to manifest in the rescue scene and because Logan's wolf wants to mark her. (Sometimes pruning allows a plant to thrive; I wish Ms. Redford would prune her stories a bit more.)7. I think every character at some point mentions that Clarissa isn't acting like her normal self. I think that's a sign that even the author knows that Clarissa does not act very much like a heroine in this book.8. Babies don't magically solve relationship problems. Actually, they tend to bring new problems. Having Clarissa making the grand gesture of telling Logan she wants to have his kids at the end instead of *demonstrating* that she trusts him (in a way not involving mate marking) does not fill me with confidence in their relationship. Personally, I think she might be better off going to Al-Anon meetings and waiting until she gets over the trauma of almost dying before deciding to procreate. It feels (to me) that Clarissa is just using a baby lure to avoid dealing with her problems and distract Logan from said avoidance. (Remember her avoid-avoid-avoid, oh woe is me habit? (which is patterned after her father's behavior, really))I still have enough positive energy about the first book in the series that I'll check reviews for the third book, but the teaser chapter at the end makes me fear that it's going to be as much of a muddled angst-o-rama as this one was.
