Review by Xeranthemum
Introducing the Cartwright sisters-Harmony, Destiny and Storm-triplets and unstoppable seductresses.
Harmony, the buyer for her sisters' vintage curio shop, can read objects and learn of their former owners. Now, a Celtic ring leads her to a castle on the coast of Massachusetts. King Paxton's money-pit is cursed, and he hopes that this leggy blonde can help him find peace with an angry ghost, a disgruntled renovation crew-and his own heart.
Sex and the Psychic Witch had me laughing, giggling and just flat out enjoying myself as I watched a woman totally charm and undermine a ex-military man’s determination to be unaffected by her.
King Paxton is described in the story in many a varied way by the heroine, Harmony Cartwright. Harmony not only has a way with words but with clothing, attitude, and ghosts too. She is a witch who is in touch with good karma and optimism. She stands her ground and is uninhibited to such an extent that she embraces who and what she is – no apologies. She loves sex, isn’t shy about it, but is particular just the same. And wait until you get a load of what she calls Mr. Paxton’s male anatomy. It is going into my vocabulary from this day onwards. Ms. Blair took a piece of purple prose and made it her own. Every time Harmony used innuendo, it sent me into gales of laughter. I don’t think I’ve read a book with such an animated character. And I have to love a character that has a passion for statement shirts.
Harmony’s animation is bemusing, perplexing and exasperating to King Paxton. At first he wants nothing to do with her, then, can’t get enough of her. His pursuit has him ending up in the most embarrassing and hilarious predicaments. A man with the sense of humor of a prune doesn’t stand a chance against a woman like Harmony. The evolution of King’s demeanor, his outlook on life and his belief system is a delight to watch. Not to mention his views about statement shirts. King is a hunk with baggage and he’s going to have to move it or lose it because Harmony is moving in.
I also really liked the set up of this story because it introduces King’s two best buds along with Harmony’s two sisters. I can see two sequels coming up easily. Ms. Blair developed the secondary characters to a perfect point because I want to read about them as well, preferably as soon as possible. Those other two guys, Aiden and Morgan, are quite yummy in their own right.
Add in a mentally touched ghost, unknown family members, flying kitty cats with attitude and a toy room that eerily comes to life and Sex and the Psychic Witch should keep you zipping through the pages as fast as it did me.
This story is a stand alone and from reading it, I realized that there is one book that came before. I guarantee you that I’m going to be finding it and reading it. If Sex and the Psychic Witch is a consistent example of this author’s writing style, she’s going to become a must buy for me. I love laughter and romance and this author seems to have it in spades.
