Fortuna Sworn by K.J. Sutton


With shades of A Court of Thornes and Roses, Twilight and others in this genre, this story is of a young woman with paranormal powers, who is desired by more than one male.  Fortuna is a Nightmare with the powers that go along with it and as part of an effort to save her lost brother, she makes a pact with a Fairy who, of course, desires her.  Danger, brutality and desire abound in this first book in the series. I listened to the audio book and it was well done.

A Letter to Three Witches by Elizabeth Bass


This is a fun to read witchy romance novel with the feel of a cozy mystery.  Gwen's family has been forbidden to practice magic with the constant threat of "watchers" who will turn them in to the witches' council if any of them were to practice magic. When Gwen's adoptive sister sends a vaguely threatening letter to Gwen and her cousins, Trudy and Milo, their lives change in wild and witchy ways.  This is a laugh out loud endearing book and I highly recommend it.
