Review of Paranormal Romance Novel: Destiny Bewitched by Leia Shaw


Title: Destiny Bewitched
Series: Shadows of Destiny
Author: Leia Shaw
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Official Synopsis
Deemed “trailer trash” by humans and the daughter of the most disgraceful family of witches and warlocks since the Puritan age, Samantha is used to fighting her own battles.

When her younger sister is taken to the Underworld, Sam doesn't hesitate to rescue her. To survive the harsh land, she makes a deal with a demon — the most dangerous of creatures in the realm. Even with those lustrous horns, Geo is as hot as the hell she's stuck in.

Fighting nasty beasts in a supernatural version of the gladiator games is easy compared to falling in love with a man who has no future to offer.

My Review
This book in one sentence: An action-packed and deliciously wicked tale of survival, love and the strength to overcome the impossible to get the things you thought you could never have: hope, happiness, and love.

Leia Shaw continues to amaze me with her new installment of the Shadows of Destiny series: Destiny Bewitched. Each book of the series is unique and unputdownable in its own way and Destiny Bewitched is no exception.

Sam is the tough girl who goes into every situation using her heart as her guide with her head trying to catch up to tell her she is nuts. She has a thick skin due to her questionable upbringing when the only person she ever loved and truly loved her, her sister, goes missing she will stop at nothing to bring her back - even if it means making a deal with a demon. Little did she now that Geo is not a demon and when she made the deal she is risking something more than her sister's life. As they journey together she realizes that it is now her heart that is on the line as their relationship grown with each passing day. Can she trust Geo with her heart, her own life and  that of her sisters or will she lose everything for making a pact with a demon?

Geo has been in the Underworld and knows how to survive, but when he encounters a witch, his whole world changes. A witch is the only being that could save him so he agrees to help her, but he never expected to fall in love. The bubble of protection he created in the Underworld is broken by the feelings that continues to grow for Sam. But how can he love someone he can't keep? She is from the Earth realm and he the Underworld. Is he going to lose the only woman he has ever loved?

They will soon find that nothing is ever as it seems. Together they must fight their way through a gladiator competition, try to find Sam's sister and figure out how to deal with their growing love for each other. With the world on their shoulders and the Underworld against them, will they be able to survive or will they lose it all in the face of pure evil?

This book is amazing. It is a fast-paced thrill right that I could not get enough of. The attraction between these two is pure fire, the love that grows is sweet, the twists and turns will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat and the ending will leave you in tears. I loved every second of this read!

Each installment can be read as a stand alone, but it is fun to see the way the characters and worlds of the other installments are weaved together through featured appearances of the main characters of her other books in the series. If you are looking for an unputdownable series filled with sensual romance, action and surprises - this series is for you!
