Genre: Paranormal Romance

What do you do when you’re magically inept in a world where your worth rests on your magical ability?
This is the question that has haunted magic-less Warden Lyssa all her life. So when injured Warrior Hawk mistakes her for a full Warden and claims sanctuary she agrees, thinking she can hide the truth for just one night.
Unfortunately it’s not so easy with a Warden execution squad on her tail and then a steamy encounter with her handsome warrior challenges everything Lyssa thought she knew about herself…

My Rating:



Favorite Quote:



“When Lyssa cried she sounded like a cross between a pig and a donkey, her eyes went bright red, and her nose ran so much it could double as an Olympic contender.”



My Review:


I rarely read paranormal books, but I have learned to make an exception for Mina Carter.  Ms. Carter has a way of making her unusual paranormal stories smoking hot, while also being fun and witty at the same time.   Her stories contain odd-ball and sad-sack characters, as well as sexy beasts that are - on occasion – beasts.  This time our sexy beast is a leather wearing Warrior, whose purpose is to hunt and kill the scary bad things that most humans don’t know about.  I want one.   He may not have been the star attraction of the story, but he was for me – I though he was yummy.

Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days.

So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all.
..
(But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.)

The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.
