Publisher: Liquid Silver Books
Buy Jinx and her Werewolf Here!
Rating: Need To Read
Reviewed by: Lupa
As a jinx, Thora has had to move around a lot. When her car breaks down, stranding her in Strange Hollow, she figures the town is as good a place as any to stay for a while. When she meets Daker, he is just one more reason for her to stay.
A werewolf, Daker knows Thora is his mate, but her being a mortal just adds one more reason to take things slow with her. Not only does he have to find a way to tell her he is a werewolf, and she is his mate, he has to explain that the residents of Strange Hollow aren’t exactly what they seem. After Daker claims Thora as his mate, Thora knows they can never be, not with her curse hanging over her head. She may be cursed to be a jinx for the rest of her life, but she’s also destined to kill the man she gives her heart to. Not wanting to be the cause of Daker’s death, she has to fight her feelings for him or watch the man she loves die.
Curses and werewolves and succubi, Oh My!
Ok so I know that is a cheesy way to start the review, but that is me ;)
Strange Hollow sounds like my kind of town, a place where misfits can live peacefully – well misfit paranormals anyway. They might let a nut like me visit but I wouldn’t qualify to stay.
Marise Cheney’s vivid descriptions and brilliant details bring to mind any quiet little town out in the boonies; with of course the exception that this town has werewolves, succubi and any number of other unique individuals residing there.
Thora is a tough young woman, of course being a jinx – cursed even – she would have to be pretty tough to survive. Above and beyond that she has learned to take things as they come, of course she certainly didn’t expect what she gets when her car breaks down in Strange Hollow.
Daker is handsome, smart, and a slightly dysfunctional werewolf, but his patience with and passion for Thora make him a great match for her.
Jinx and Her Werewolf is a great read, the characters are well rounded and fun, the setting of Strange Hollow is detailed and endearing. I definatley recommend this book to anyone who likes the paranormal.
The mot important thing to remember though is that Assumptions will get you in trouble ;). Just ask Thora and Daker.
