Review - A Warlock’s Destiny by Jane Wakely @JaneWakely (Reluctant Mates #4)

A Warlock’s Destiny
Reluctant Mates #4
by Jane Wakely

Goodreads blurb:  Isabelle Turner, a librarian known as the only powerless witch in the Mythical Realm, has been on more human dates than she can count. Unfortunately, the evenings always end the same, with her wishing she could turn her date into a toad. When she receives a summons from the Council, she’s convinced they’re going to push her into the human world for good. Instead, they force her to take a mate.

Liam Waverly is the most powerful warlock in the Mythical Realm. When the Council brings up mating, he knows their choice will be an accomplished witch to match his strength. When they try and force him to mate with the powerless witch, he decides to seek out his own mate, but fails.

In order to sustain the numbers of all mythical beings, the Council, the governing body of the Mythical Realm, intervened and found prosperous matches for several of their subjects. Rather than create an act of treason, punishable by death, Isabelle and Liam agree to mate. The mating bond is sacred, but several disastrous incidents push them apart, starting with Liam’s desire to mate with another. When Liam finds out Isabelle’s secret, they agree to work together, but it will take more than a tentative friendship to keep evil from destroying them both.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received the ebook for an honest review

The cover is definitely steamy, but I think she should have looked more like a librarian ;)

Okay, I really love this series, but I always like to start off with things you may want to know.  This is only 60 or so pages, so it is a quick read.  Not sure if that makes it a short story or a novella because I don’t pay that much attention to the distinctions between the two :)  This is the 4th book in the series, and yes you can read them out of order.  It does have some steamy scenes, so adults only.  This is my favorite series that this author writes, and I haven’t read anything by her that I’ve not liked.

This story is great for when you want a story, but do not have time for a full length novel.  Jane’s stories are easy to read, and she makes it come alive in my imagination.  I really wish these books were longer because I love this world she has created.

Okay this book is about Isabelle, and I love how strong she is especially with jerks.  And Liam, well, let’s just say I think he needed to be slapped a lot in this book for being an arrogant jerk and a caveman, but you have to read it to know what I mean.  As always my reviews rarely say anything about plot and such because I would never want to ruin another reader’s adventure in reading.

I highly recommend this series to anyone who already loves Jane’s work, and those of us who love PNR but want a quick read.
