I love a touch of magic in my romance!! Witches, Elementals and Supernaturals, oh my! Two of my fav mainstream series have just those things!!
I adore Jennefer Estep's Elemental Assassin series!! Gin Blanco kicks butt on all levels!! Estep creates a fantastic world like no other. So wonderfully well thought out with engaging and dynamic characters! 

Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin, #1)Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Awesome loved it! lots of excitement and the concept is fantastic! Can't wait for the next one.

Listened to the audio-book and the narrator was beyond awesome! She really brought the characters to life!

Great story that is a fast paced adventure. Happy and sad moments. Very engaging characters that are funny and touching.

And just as exciting is Kim Harrison's Hollow's series, Rachel Morgan is a force to be reckoned with!! And one of my fav bad boy crushes the demon Al!!! It was dicey for a few books but it is back on track now.

Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, #1)Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great series! Rachel is snarky and a kick a$$ chick! Jinx is hysterical and Ivy is a real bada$$!

Terrific concept and truly entertaining tale! Great story telling that draws you in and keeps you engaged the whole way through!

Can't wait to see where this series is headed!

  19. My favorite “Magical” books are The Witches Knot series by Lauren Dane. Triad, A Touch of Fae, Vengeance Due, and Thrice United. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

    1. Oh Yeah!! I love the Lauren Dane series as well!!

  20. This is an awesome blog hop! I'm a big fan of supernatural books especially romantic ones. I love magic and I love that you never know what people's abilities are going to be. It leaves so much more open to guessing because the world that the author builds all of a sudden does NOT follow our world's rules. I love when people can listen to thoughts or move things with their minds. I also think being able to control other's emotions would be a handy gift. Probably my favorite books involving people with magic are 'Beautiful Creatures' and 'Poison Study.' It must be hard to be responsible for such power. I love when Lena from 'Beautiful Creatures' is trying to harness all she has. It's something akin to the awkwardness we all go through in middle school in which we are trying to figure out who we are.
    Thanks for the giveaway and I'm gonna keep on hopping!

  33. Love Stacey Kennedy new Magic & Mayhem series. Nora Roberts Trilogies, Kelly Armstorng! and so many others :)

  34. Thank you very much for the chance to enter the giveaway.

    I can't think of a very favorite book with magic in it because every time I read one, it becomes a favorite because I love them so much! "Magician" by Raymond Feist is very good but it's more fighting fantasy and not romance at all (still, it's really very good). I love the television show "Supernatural" and have been watching that since season one day one so I like books that are a bit like those things as well. Oh, I just like it all!! If it's written I like it! I'm also always on the hunt for a new series (so if anyone has any suggestions, send them my way! I need some!!)

    Have a wonderful day one and all!
