The Season of the Witch

25 Feb

triadI was thinking about the Oscars last night. More specifically, the Oscar curse–you know the one that goes like this: 50% of the actresses who win the oscar supposedly end up getting cheated on/dumped within a year of winning.  (Although we have to keep in mind that one year in a Hollywood marriage is the equivalent to five years in the real world.)

witchfireAnyhoo, thinking about curses got me thinking about THE SCOTTISH WITCH.  I’m reading it and I’m loving it.  Then I started thinking about how popular witches are in romance novels these days, and I went poking around all the many titles out there for some that might be…stimulating.  If you know what I mean.  And I think you do.  ;>

Here’s what I found.

Most sexy title/cover goes to: TRIAD by Lauren Dane.

Award for witch story with best homoerotic sidekick thang: Kim Harrison.  Check out her HOLLOWS series.  You won’t regret it.

FistfulHottest book blurb goes to: Anya Bast for WITCH FIRE. Mira Hoskins doesn’t know she’s a natural-born witch who possesses the rare—and powerful—element of air. And she never expects to find herself tied to a mahogany bed frame, captive of a man who aches to fulfill her every desire and let loose the magick that dwells inside her.

That’s right, magick–with a K.

Finally, the award for best curse goes to: THE SCOTTISH WITCH by Cathy Maxwell.  A mother curses the lineage of the man who betrayed her daughter.  Now every man in the family line who falls in love dies.

scottishOh yes–the power of destructive  female perversity–Scottish style.  I wouldn’t want to be a witch any other way.
