Newly indoctrinated witch, and a charmling to boot, Defiance Dayne discovers there’s more to life after forty than she'd ever imagined possible. Especially since one neighbor is trying to seduce her, another neighbor is trying to steal her house out from under her, and a third neighbor is trying to get her kicked off the planet. Oh for three, but things start to look up when a new witch moves to town, one who says she’s been sent to thwart an attempt on the charmling’s life.

Dephne decides she has three things to do before she can die. Find out who killed her beloved grandmother, teach her BFF, Annette, the finer points of spellcasting before she blows up the world, and figure out how serious her relationship with the Adonis living in her basement really is. If it’s heading in the direction she’s hoping for, she can die happy. Though, admittedly, she’d rather not.

None of that will matter, however, if she can’t figure out how to foil the supernatural assassin who’s been sent to kill her. Until then, it’s business—and hopefully romance—as usual. Now if she can only figure out how to tame a lacuna wolf

magical ROMANCE mystery friends

Beguiled is the third novel in the Betwixt & Between paranormal women’s fiction series by Darynda Jones. Narrated by Traci Odem, the audiobook captures the humor, romance and magical house perfectly. Trouble is brewing, and why does Defiance keep waking up in the attic?

We are back with Defiance and let me tell you there is never a dull moment at the Percy House! Defiance is determined to figure out who killed her grandmother, but she’ll also have to decide where her relationship is going with the sexy shifter, Roane. Keep Annette from killing them all and deal with meddlesome neighbors. Oh yeah, there is a new witch in town, and a hunter has been sent to kill her. Fun times!

First, I am over the moon excited that Annette will have her own story. Defiance’s BFF is hilarious, sweet and unique. I settled right back into the house Defiance inherited from her grandmother, the same grandmother she pulled from the Veil.

The romance between Defiance and Roane is hot. (fans-self) Any scenes with them and I am all ears! Jones had me excited, weeping and skipping with glee in Beguiled, particularly when it comes to our sexy wolf.

We get developments on the overall arc, discover something about Annette, and deal with a host of problems. Jones kept me listening as she threw in twists, caused problems and surprised the heck out of me.

The new cases wrap up even as Jones drops some news that has me excited for the next audiobook.

The Betwixt & Between series is available in Kindle Unlimited, but I recommend upgrading to audio. Traci Odem does a terrific job capturing these characters, the snark and the swoon-worthy moments. Her pacing, unique voices, accents and tones make listening a pleasure.
