A Perfect 10!

Okay…not like Bo Derek in that movie. The Perfect 10 isn’t for me, I’m more like a perfect 4, but a perfect 10 for BLOOD MAGIC! This review is suppose to go up today, April 1st, at Romance Reviews Today.

Glassbreakers, California – the Present

Isn’t it funny how life can drastically change within a few moments? Darcy MacAlister is comfortable with her life as a funeral director. Within the twinkle of an eye, her ordinary life becomes extraordinary after she is attacked by criminals fascinated by her blood! Darcy is rescued by Axel, a larger than life hunk. But, before Darcy can express her gratitude, Axel kidnaps her, claims she is a witch, and demands that Darcy help his sister.

Axel is a Wing Slayer Hunter on a mission. When a deadly spell is placed on his little sister, Hannah, Axel searches for a witch strong enough to remove the curse. To his surprise, Darcy has no idea that she is a witch and has never knowingly used her magic. To further complicate matters, villains are intent on killing Darcy, and Axel is her only hope for survival. As a Witch Hunter, Axel’s job is to protect witches and fight his yearning for witch blood. He knows Darcy is off-limits because, with only one taste of her blood, he could easily become ravenous for more. Darcy and Axel are soon fighting their attraction to one another and trying their best to tap into Darcy’s dormant powers because Hannah has only a few days to live before the curse claims her life.

Readers, get ready for the Wing Slayer Hunters! Axel is the leader of a group of immortals sworn to protect witches and the world from the villains intent on harming them. Axel is an “all-or-nothing” alpha accustomed to getting his way. He doesn’t understand his uncontrollable and all consuming attraction to Darcy. He only knows that he must have her despite all odds.

Darcy eventually falls hopelessly and completely in love with Axel, despite his overbearing ways. BLOOD MAGIC does an excellent job introducing and exploring the possibilities of witch magic as Darcy learns her powers. The other Wing Slayer Hunters are introduced and all seem worthy of their own tales. However, readers are only given a tease and won’t learn too much about them in BLOOD MAGIC. I guarantee that lovers of paranormal romance with sexy heroes who own their pages will be hooked by BLOOD MAGIC. By the end of the first chapter, you will recognize that you are truly in for a treat. Ms. Lyon has done a phenomenal job creating believable characters and intertwining them in such action-packed, save the world scenes that readers will be left frantically awaiting the next book in the series.

BLOOD MAGIC has Perfect 10 written all over it and is sure to be a hit all around. I enjoyed every minute of it and look forward to placing its successors on my keeper shelf.

    DUDETTE! Go you! It’s about time the romance community pulled their heads out of the sand and realized what an amazing writer you are! BLOOD MAGIC is an incredible book and should be at least a 15 on a scale of 1 to 10!

    Appletinis to celebrate! I’m mixin’ and pourin’!

    WOW! What an excellent review! I’m so happy for you. Of course, I already knew Blood Magic was a perfect 10, so this isn’t news to me. BUT STILL!!!! WOO HOO! I see your next book as written by best selling author Jennifer Lyon.

    GO JEN!

    All you guys rock! You’ve been so supportive!

    Margaret, thank you! I was blown away when I saw the advance copy of the review.

    Silver, you tell them :-) Seriously, though, thank you so much! This stuff is so hard to predict and who knows what will happen in the long run, but it’s nice to share these moments with you all!

    I’ve got my appletini glass!

    Erika, I love the sound of best selling Jennifer Lyon, LOL! Thanks so much!

    By the way, did you get the hats for the flying monkeys?

    They’re on order. You can never trust this stuff to arrive when they say it’s going to. You should travel over to my blog today and join up with the LSM club. ;)

    Erika, maybe you should send the flying monkeys to pick up the hats…or is it a surprise?

    I went to your site! Then went back1 I’m haunting you today :-) I’m shamelessly begging to be let into the LSM club!

    Hmm…wonder if I should stop playing and get some work done now?

    Work? We don’t need no stinking work! LSM men, YES! I’m sure hanging around at Erika’s house, too! Hrmmm. Do appletinis and cookies mix?

    Jen – the hats are a surprise, otherwise that would be a good idea. Birthdays are coming up, but if they’re not here soon I’ll have to send them out to get them. I hope not, that might ruin the surprise.

    WooHoo, I agree totally, I can’t wait until the other Wing Slayer books come out, to see what happens. Great read!

    Silver…I’ve been trying to come up with an appletini cookie recipe, but ummm…I think I might have drank the ingredients :-) But I think Appletini Cookies might be the Next Big Thing!

    Erika, shhhh! Mum’s the word! I won’t tell the monkeys no matter how many appletinis they bring me! I hope the hats arrive so you don’t have to spoil the surprise!

    Quilt Lady, thank you! Now if we can just get the Wing Slayer Hunters to cooperate so I can write this next book. These guys are a little stubborn!

    Dudette! Appletini Cookies. We can get Billy Mays to hawk them on late-night TV!

    Seriously, though…Appletini Cookies would rock! If I can’t get my inner editor jump-started to get some work done, I might just have to retreat to the kitchen and experiment…. *wanders off glassy-eyed* Oh..Erika? Think I could borrow the monkeys to run to the store for me?

    Erika, I like to think of the monkeys as resourceful!

    Silver, boy do I hear you on the work! I have to get back to it in a minute, but heck yeah! Appletini Cookies would be fab, but I have to warn you…I have had some mishaps attempting them. Be careful–magic and alcohol are combustible!

    Silver, my monkeys are your monkeys…or something like that. *scratching head*

    Thanks, Erika! I’ve got them winging to the grocery store and the package store to get what I need for the spell…er…recipe. I’ll get cookin’ just as soon as they return!

    (And seriously…I’m so trying the recipe I came up with as soon as I have the supplies!)
