Book Review of Witches Be Burned (Magic & Mayhem #2) by Stacey Kennedy

In Stacey Kennedy’s steamy paranormal romance novel, a rookie guardian sworn to combat the undead risks life and love in a world of violence, witchcraft, and seduction.

Nexi Jones has lost her family, she’s been stripped of her guardian duties, and she’s still learning the ins and outs of white magic. At least she has Kyden, the smoldering hot elite guardian who’s been there for her every step of the way. But just as Nexi completes her training, tragedy strikes the Otherworld when a fellow guardian is murdered by a group of rogue vampires. Ready or not, she and Kyden trek into the Earthworld to hunt down a killer—and Nexi alone will be put to the ultimate test.

Although Kyden knows that Nexi must fight her own battles, his guardian instincts are raging as he struggles to keep her close. The ruthlessness of these vampires is like nothing he’s ever seen. And at their helm is the Black Witch Astoria, a demon with one burning desire: to shed Nexi’s blood in the name of vengeance. What troubles Kyden even more, though, is the warlock who covets Nexi’s heart. Let the devil do his worst . . . all Kyden can do is love and protect Nexi until his last breath.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

If you love a good Paranormal Romance then look no more because Witches be Burned (Magic & Mayhem Book 2) by Stacey Kennedy is the one you are looking for!  In this steamy, sexy paranormal world you will meet characters that tug at your imagination while drawing you into a world that is filled with mystery and the unknown.  The pages sizzle with seduction and hot alpha maleness!  This is the story of an Elite Guardian that just happens to be a witch that was raised as a human and the immortal that loves her.

When all your life you thought you were human, the discovery that you are more can be difficult to accept.  Nexi Jones was raised by human parents and shielded from other paranormal species by a protective spell.  Her life changed forever when she found out about those around her that were not human.  She was trained to be an Elite Guardian and a witch once her true identity was uncovered.  Drawn into the Otherworld she falls in love with Kyden, a leader of the Elite Guardians. Nexi refuses to take a backseat and pushes Kyden to see that she can take care of herself and be a part of the Guardians that protect the Earthworld and its inhabitants.

He is a protective alpha male that will go to any lengths to keep Nexi safe from those that could harm her.   Kyden is a trained Elite Guardian and the fact that he had almost lost Nexi to a rogue vampire master is more than he can handle.  It is important to him that she stay safe and out of dangers way, the only problem with that is Nexi.  When strange things begin to take place and immortals start to die, he becomes more protective.  There are too many indicators that someone is making rogue vampires and they are out for blood, but whose blood?

Kyden and Nexi will work together to solve the unexpected deaths of other Guardians and who is creating the rogue vampires.  But operating behind the scene, unknown to everyone lurks an evil that they may not be able to overcome.
