Welcome to Lusty Charms, located in the heart of Desire.

Ren Sparks has finally found a home in Desire. It’s a small paranormal town where she runs a successful shop of love and lust charms, surrounded by good friends, and just so happens to be the head witch! Life couldn’t be better. Except, she is cursed from the one thing she desires most…love.

In walks Slade. He’s a werewolf that not only captures her heart, but fills her with such lustful need that she can’t wait to get him in her bed. Sparks fly and the heat rises when they are in the same room. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing in town. The mayor is killed and Ren is tasked with finding the killer. When everything points to her, she must rush to find the truth. Is Ren being set up? Is Slade the one to finally break the curse?

***Cassandra – #NerdGirlLola’s  Review***

 I absolutely loved this short story; it is the first glimpse in to the Paranormal town of Desire, and what a glimpse it is. With witty writing and fun and engaging characters, Charms of Desire is a great read. I really like the fact that this book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

For being as short as it is it has a clear cut ending but introduces you to plenty of characters that we will hopefully see throughout the series. Also it has a lot going on for being just a short story, but luckily it all wraps up really well. The scenes with Ren and Slade aren’t too shabby either, very well written with none of the awkward stuff like “he put his hand on her bosom” nonsense.

Overall it was a great beginning to a series I plan to look out for. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone (over 18, of course).
