REVIEW: Shifting Hearts by Dominique Eastwick

***This book was originally reviewed for Storm Goddess Book Reviews.***

Summary:

The last of his kind…

Rekkus is the last of the great Black Tiger weres and he is happy to stay that way. Working as security for the Wiccan Haus, a magical spa for inner healing, he has enough danger – and women – to keep him busy. Unfortunately, the Fates are not content with him being comfortable.

Alone and discouraged…

Dana has walked away from all she has known, her fiancĂ©, family, apartment, and job. Now, having a ticket to the Wiccan Haus may be the only way she can move on. But what she finds isn’t what she expects, nor is it what she thought she was looking for.

Meet the unusual residents of the Wiccan Haus. The staff can get a little hairy and not all of the guests eat what’s served in the dining hall. But the proprietors always do what they can to make the resort into a place of healing and peace, using all of their years of practice. At the Haus, where humans and Paras reside side-by-side, everyone in need of the Rowan siblings’ services are welcome.

Thoughts:

Vampires, witches, and weres, oh my! This was a sweet and sexy novella, filled with shape-shifting yumminess and cameos from a couple witches and vampires. I’m partial to the cat shifters to begin with, so the hero being a were-tiger was the icing on the cake. It was also a relief to read a romance, especially an erotic romance, where the heroine wasn’t supermodel stick thin and perfect, but was still plenty sexy. There’s not a whole lot of storyline other than a little background on our main characters, so the focus is all on them as they get very friendly with one another.

My only real complaint is that I want more, because the atmosphere created such a fun story. It is a series, though by different authors, so I’ll have to check out the next one to see how things play out. The way it’s set up, stories could be written for the owners of Wiccan Haus, but from the looks of it, so far it looks like the sequels will focus on guests. It’ll be interesting to see how the different authors depict the same world and incorporate the background characters each time. Overall, a quick, light-hearted, fun erotic read.
