White Witch of Hartford by J. Spencer Bryant

I really do not know what to say about this book, but to say that I am thrown off.

Synopsis

Contrary to some disbelief, witches and warlocks do exist. Although certain psychics phenomena have been proven to exist, yet it is still not believed by many who choose not to think about such things.

This story is not similar to Harry Potter who deals with wizards and sorcerer’s stones, but rather of a real witch with whom the author became involved through no fault of his own, other than though stressful circumstances at the time. The phrase often mentioned in the story, “there is no way out for you or me” haunted the author then and still does to this day.

Meet Madam T’umphie, a witch that came to this world on a special mission from her called Seker, and met with a fate that couldn’t be tolerated by her god, in that she had fallen in love with a mortal man. Send from the “nether world,” Madam T’umphie enjoyed toying with humans she disliked, often destroying them to the dismay of many people.

Kept secret for 25 years until now, the author recalls his harrowing experiences of becoming a supernatural pawn of a capricious spirit-being as she leads him into the unbelievable world of the paranormal.

This book is dark and mysterious. I love witches, and this one takes the cake. I don’t know if I like or hate it, to be honest. You have the main character that goes by the name of “Chef”, and a mysterious woman who is after Chef’s ex-wife’s husband (or boyfriend?), Bobbie. Bobbie has the amulet that Madam T is after. And Madam T uses Chef to get that amulet. And he gets a gift in return, anything he wants. He decides to have a powerful . . . Manhood. I know, right?

Anyways, while reading this book, with the synopsis in my head, I am thinking to myself “this cannot be real”. “Maybe this is some way the author is exaggerating a story?” Then I remembered, it’s just a story, just like the other books that make you think it’s real, but isn’t . . . Or is it?

The book could have gone great without certain descriptions, scenarios, and even some words. Words I cannot even repeat. And there are very few.

I give White Witch of Hartford 3 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ because like I said, I don’t know if I like the book, or I dislike it. The story itself is great, but the way it was written, was kind of . . . Confusing. Check it out, and let me know what you think.

Book Review – From Ashes and Embers by Claire Marta (18+)

*Disclaimer this blog post consists of an affiliate link.

I have always loved Claire Marta’s Ceasefire’s series. From Ashes to Embers is yet another one to add to my collection.

Synopsis

She’s forbidden.

Temptation personified in a curvy package of sugar and sin.

My one job is to obey the rules.

Keep my **** in my pants and forget the new nanny.

Be a good little soldier as the Devil himself raised me to be.

Problem is I can’t.

I care more than I want to admit.

I’m not supposed to have a conscience. Blood stains my hands and taints my soul.

There’s no escaping the chains that bind us, when duty threatens to destroy us both.

Raziel is the Devil’s right hand man. Someone who sold his soul to him when he was young to save his mother’s soul, and send it to Heaven. He was trained as a fighter, and not to have feelings for others.

Jane is a fairy who takes the job as a nanny to watch the Devil’s and Mavi’s baby. She instantly attracts Raziel, who is conflicted because of his boss. The Devil himself told Raziel that she is to be off limits. Well, the Devil had other plans.

Jane recollects where she came from, and try to solve so many mysteries that were holes in her past. Raziel, comes to terms that he loves Jane, and he can’t fight it.

From Ashes to Embers is book 3 in the Ceasefire series. You will have to read the first two or else you will be completely lost. Book 1 is The Devil’s Plaything and Book 2 is The Devil You Know which both posts can be seen here.

I give From Ashes to Embers 5 stars. The sex, the continuing story, the violence, the feelings . . . Everything. If you like erotica with some drama and violence, this is the book for you!!!
