The man she loves left her, but he’s the only one that can protect her.
Sharmila is a witch with a problem. Her magic is waning. And her lack of sex may have something to do with it. Her mother’s solution? Easy. Sharmila needs to get laid. Easier said than done, though, because Shar is still in love with the only man to make her melt, Zahir Darkwrath. Her missing husband. Her demon.
Zahir knows he’s a danger to Shar, so he’s done his best to stay far away. Darkness flows through his being, and when emotions run wild, destruction rages around him. And sex with Shar is definitely wild. Staying away from the woman he loves is the hardest thing he’s ever done, but hurting her would be far worse. So he’s astounded when Shar’s mother hires his company to watch over her.
Evil is heading Shar’s way, and Zahir is the only one who can stop it. To save her, Zahir will need more than control; he’ll need the power of his own darkness--which might be his undoing.
When I saw this Blog Tour, I couldn't really resist! Sometimes when you read a lot YA books, sometimes I like to go outside my comfort zone and experience other genres I like! I know its Erotica not something for a blog like this! But for a novella it really wasn't that bad at all!
What I loved about it was the Paranormal concept to the novella. Sharmillia is a witch that has literally lost her power and strength. She was at her prime when she was in a relationship, but after having a rough break up she has denied her needs as a woman. But what she hasn't considered is that is what fuels her strength and power as the protagonist of the novel. Sharmilla is a very contented woman, who enjoy the daily work of her own business yet she know there is something missing without her magic!
There is also an element of her character that I just love, her mother! From the beginning she scrutinises her daughter about her needs. As a reader it not only cringes Shar but also myself. Having your own mother talk about such a thing must be a very embarrassing and I feel for her! Her mother is like her personal cupid! She takes the matters into her own hands and contacts Zahir, a Warlock and one is fuelled by his own dark magic lingering in the air.
Apart from Shar's lack of power, her mother has sensed a growing darkness in her home. By contacting her ex, she know she will have full protection as a magical fuelled being as well as a bodyguard as part of his daily job. At first his character can be contrasting when he associates with Shar bringing back the memories of being her husband. He loved her so much, that he knew the way to protect was to leave her. I loved his persona; he is a content and down-to-earth character beneath the hardcore and powerful alpha male that he is portrayed as.
Overall, I loved the paranormal concept of an Erotcia novella. Its fast-paced, action-packed, steamy romance with the suspense throughout the whole book!
