Experience Joey W. Hill’s scintillating blend of modern-day witchcraft, ancient evil, and the magical tricks men and women play in the name of love…

All witch and part succubus, savvy businesswoman Raina has converted a Southern plantation house into an extremely profitable old-fashioned bordello. Because of her abilities as a witch, the demons under Raina’s protection can feed off the sexual energy of their clients without killing them—definitely a good thing for repeat business.

 

But when a rogue incubus shows up on Raina’s doorstep begging for asylum, the witch’s well-run business is put in jeopardy. The incubus has stolen an object of great power from Lucifer, and Underworld Dark Guardian Mikhael will do anything to get it back—even if it means incinerating the incubus on Raina’s porch to get the answers he seeks.

 

Not to be trifled with, Raina enters a dangerous match of wits with Mikhael to achieve their mutual goals—only to discover that the reluctant attraction between them is the most hazardous game of all…

  • To answer my own question: No, probably not. Unless perhaps its in the context of a great story and that story's ability to provide you the best escape, and then yes, I believe in magic. All of Joey Hill's books are the best of escapes for me, and while in her PNR tales, the worlds are magical, the characters are as real, and as full and as 3-D as life itself. This one is about balance: Dark and Light. Good and Evil. Perception and Reality.

    I love Raina, perhaps best of all Ms. Hill's heroines. She's as tough as old boot leather, especially when creating a place for and defending the underdogs, like herself. Even when these underdogs bring looming disaster to her doorstep, she creates and maintains a way of life for them where they can do no harm, while avoiding harm themselves. The unusual thing is that this sanctuary is a bordello with a spell that is..full of promise!

    She is endearingly irreverent and defiant. When an author can seamlessly create a relationship between protags that is at once confrontational AND supportive, and is also unerringly humourous, then you have a story with substance. Raina uses her boot-leather facade and laser sharp wit to keep her nemesis-cum-savior, Mikhael, from touching the real "her", while also using him to help keep a new and dangerous evil from her rag-tag band of misfit underdogs.

    Mikhael is a great find! The 'gawd-I-want-to-just-smack-him' bad guy from the previous book in the Arcane Shot series (Something About Witches [SAW]), with Ms. Hill's guidance and skillful "pen", transforms into bad-boy with heart, and soul... and a with a pesky Jones for Raina. He is a Dark Guardian and its his job to retrieve something one of her new misfits has stolen from Mikhael's boss: Lucifer. Neither he nor Lucifer counted on Raina, methinks!

    Considering his baddie activities in S.A.W. appear to include treating Raina's best friend like dirt, it is surprising that a relationship develops between these two. But the heart wants what the heart wants, and the determined Guardian slowly but surely (and most enticingly) shows Raina that everything is not what it first seems. Nor are people. Faith and trust are not destined to be misplaced, true caring can go both ways, and entrusting your battered soul to one who can help restore it, is life's true magic.

    By that same token, Raina's presence in Mikhael's life helps him put his own existence in context, heal wounds with old friends and find that suppressed part of his own soul. Balance...

    Indeed, it takes two...and a great book...for magic to happen.

  • I love a bad boy, add to that a bad boy who's a Dark Guardian, one who has his sights set on a witch, who's also a succubus and the sparks fly like crazy. Raina is the female alpha and madam of her bordello. She's able to use her magic and power to keep the other succubi and incubi in her business from killing the customers and in turn provides them a safe place to live. Raina is surrounded by people, the family that she's made, but she comes across as lonely. She was stolen and abused as a young girl and even though her nature has her responding to a Dominants touch, she will never, ever put herself in a position of vulnerability. She's so strong all the time, but all it takes is an encounter with Mikhael to throw her whole world into a tailspin.

    We met Mikhael in Something About Witches, and he, uh, made an impression, to say the least. He gave pain, mixed with pleasure to Ruby, the heroine, before she met her match with her mate, Derek. Mikhael had a dangerous edge to him then and even though we find out later that he took no pleasure in giving Ruby what she needed, he did it for that exact reason, she needed it. When an incubus, Isaac, stumbles into Raina's home with Mikhael on his heels, Mikhael makes himself at home, as long as Isaac is there. He stole an object that Mikhael needs to get back, but in order to do that, they need to figure out who's threatening and using Isaac. So Mikhael stays at the bordello, to keep an eye on Isaac and a closer eye on Raina.

    It doesn't take long for these two to fall into bed, they have instant chemistry and can give each other something that no one else has been able to. Especially in the case of Mikhael to Raina, he's able to match her power and she's able to let go for the first time during sex and trusts Mikhael to harness all the power she releases. Mikhael recognizes in Raina a woman who responds to being with a Dominant, but she doesn't trust anyone to let herself be put in that position. Of course Mikhael accepts that challenge and sets out to show Raina just how much pleasure he can give her and she slowly starts to trust him.

    Raina is such a strong female, someone powerful, who has a big heart, helps others and she's created a family around her, but at the same time she'll kill anyone who threatens her own. She's someone who obsesses over the movie Titanic and finds simple joy in having an ice cream sundae with crushed nuts on top. On the flip side, with Mikhael, she lets herself become vulnerable and one of my most favorite scenes in the series refers to her mention of being a tearless witch. Through all her past pain and tragedy, she's never been able to cry. She can go through the motions, but to be able to physically get it out through tears, she just can't. Mikhael gives her the greatest gift ever and it's a scene that had me tearing up with how emotional it was for her. It was so well done and a perfect moment for both Mikhael and Raina.

    Derek and Ruby make a few appearances and I really enjoyed the back and forth between Derek and Mikhael. They have a hate-sort of like-hate relationship as only two alpha males can, but when it counts they each have the other man's back. It doesn't hurt that they banter back and forth constantly and they ended up having some of the best lines of book between them. Even in the middle of battling demons in hell on their way to find Raina, Derek and Mikhael still bring the sarcasm. Derek also provides much needed back up when Mikhael needs to face down a deadly demon who is torturing Raina, making her relive her worst moment, mirroring what she went through as a young girl trapped with no way out.

    This was a great addition to the Arcane Shot series. Similar to how the first book ended, we're again left with a couple, one being a human, the other a Guardian who will live forever. There's no easy fix, no magical cure at the end where Raina will suddenly live forever, but what Joey W. Hill does so well is give us this couple who will find a way to be together in this lifetime and the next, and so on. Even though I'm a big lover of clear cut happy endings, I'm left feeling like these two people will love each other completely in this life, and then Raina will find Mikhael again in the next and they'll do it all over again.
