Determined MBI (Magickal Bureau of investigations) agent Alex Denopoulos will stop at nothing to catch a killer, including recruit notorious felon, Willow McCray to work for the agency. The lines between duty and passion become blurred the more time he spends with the sultry witch. In the midst of the investigation, they succumb to the dark edges of desire, placing both their lives in danger. Alex will risk more than his badge to keep her alive.

Kick-ass witch Willow must use her powers for good if she wants to stay out of Hellios, a mage prison for those who have broken the Wiccan Rede of ‘Harm ye None.’ Willow never expects to fall so hard for Alex, a mortal with a penchant for justice and a deep seated hatred of witches. Though a future together seems impossible, she doesn’t want to let him go. Can she vanquish the evil surrounding them and give Alex her mind and body before she loses her heart and maybe her soul?
Witch Hunter is an action packed steamy paranormal romance with a host of intriguing characters.

Willow McCray is a witch who has been working for the wrong side of the law but when Willow finds out that the organization she works for is in involved in things she’s not comfortable with she decides to it’s time to quit. Problem is no one just walks away from her line of work freely or alive. In order to hide out from her boss and his demon henchmen she needs a little extra magical help from her best friend Mauve. While looking for Mauve she runs into a mysterious and sexy man named Alexandros Denopolous. Willow is instantly attracted to Alex. The man is smoking hot but there is something off about Alex. Willow suspects that he’s done something to Mauve and that he’s an assassin working for Agares sent to kill her.

Alexandros Denopolous is a human who works for the MBI, the Magickal Bureau of Investigations, the supernatural version of the FBI. Alex has been working on taking down a notorious drug lord but his informant is now dead and it looks like her death is connected to a serial killer. Now that Willow has broken a cardinal rule, ‘Harm Ye None’ the bureau has the perfect means to get her to work for them, on the right side of the law. Willow has inside information that can help Alex take down Agares and she also has unique magical skills that can help the bureau track down the serial killer. However, Alex isn’t excited with having to work with the sexy and feisty witch. He doesn’t trust witches. Actually he hates witches and he definitely doesn’t trust a witch who worked for Agares but as he gets to know Willow he starts to trust her and his attraction for her grows.

Neither can ignore the attraction they have for one another but they have a number of obstacles to work around. They both have past issues they need to deal with and several present issues in the way. With Willow’s boss out to kill her and a serial killer on the loose the two may not have the time or opportunity to explore their feelings beyond a few steamy hookups.

I burned through the pages of this book and was hooked by the fast paced storyline and constant action. Things moved rather quickly between Alex and Willow. The sex scenes were intense and well written. I did have questions concerning the interactions between humans and supernaturals but since this it the first book in the series I’m expecting those questions to be answered as the world of Raven Hollows is explored and explained further.

Willow took a sip of her margarita and glanced down at Alex’s big hands, tanned and sprinkled with a smattering of dark hair. Funny, she never found a man’s hands sexy. Suddenly her mind filled with images of Alex trailing those big, masculine hands over her body. She wondered if he fit the stereotype. Big hands, big…
“You never did answer my question. Are you considering taking me up on my offer?” The sound of his voice pulled her from a host of fantasies. Willow dug her nails into her palm to get her head back in the game. She shouldn’t be thinking about this man in such a raw, sexual way.
“Why not? My car’s parked in the back.” She probed through the nearby crowd to check if Alex came here with bodyguards. A virtual cacophony of conversations invaded her thoughts, but nothing about protection for Alex. Once she got him alone, she’d take her chances and pray she wouldn’t be outnumbered. “Then
let’s get out of here. Unless of course I’ve got some competition.” He   motioned over her shoulder to the incubus whose head now lolled forward over the bar.
“I think you’re flying solo here.” She’d set her trap and let the consequences be damned. She rubbed her finger along the rim of the glass and licked off the salt.
She lifted the glass to her lips, savoring the tangy flavor of margarita mix along with the zing of tequila as it slid down her throat. Headrush. No surprise there, she couldn’t remember the last time she’d slept or eaten in the past forty-eight hours, existing on a combination of raw nerves and pure adrenaline.
“You missed a spot.” He ran his thumb along the seam of her lip. He put it to his mouth and licked. “Mmm, sweet.” Her plan didn’t involve foreplay…but damn he was hot. In another time and another place she would be seriously into this guy. Too bad I might have to kill him.
