million uninteresting characters and a silly blend of romance tropes that made me laugh like crazy.Our hero, Aidan is a pirate turned corporate raider Fae Lord snorts He s livedthan 1,000 years but when he finds the only woman he s ever loved , he s too busy with other stuff and lets her go without a fight The heroine, Elise, is also supposedly deeply in love but doesn t try to work with Aidan on their issues Neither ever mentions their feelings so each is left with the thought that the other doesn t love them.As you can see, neither character act as if they are really in love If you really love a person, you should put your love ahead of your pride and let them know how you feel and don t give up at the first opportunity.The murky issue of Dina s paternity is the author s way of having a secret baby plot without blaming Elise All I can say is that it didn t work Most of the plot was spent rehashing what happened in the first book and introducing so many characters that it was impossible to determine who was who The seemingly insurmountable problems that separated these two in the first place weren t even an issue now so that tells you that if only they had talked a bit, these could all have been avoided.The narration was good I ll listen to another book narrated by Gabra Zackman but definitely not continuing this series I thought Motor City Fae had some potential as the first book in a new paranormal romance series and so I welcomed the chance to review the sequel, Motor City Witch This book continues the main story arc from the first, but shifts the focus to the relationship of Elise and Aiden Elise and Aiden s relationship is nicely developed and they are both likeable characters Aiden is less arrogant than I was expecting, and I think Pape managed to show several sides of his character Elise has strength I thought Motor City Fae had some potential as the first book in a new paranormal romance series and so I welcomed the chance to review the sequel, Motor City Witch This book continues the main story arc from the first, but shifts the focus to the relationship of Elise and Aiden Elise and Aiden s relationship is nicely developed and they are both likeable characters Aiden is less arrogant than I was expecting, and I think Pape managed to show several sides of his character Elise has strength, common sense and is acoherent heroine than Megan was in Motor City Fae.As a paranormal romance, the plot is secondary to the romance of the featured couple, however there is a reasonable balance of mystery, action to maintain interest Pape has vastly improved the flow and pace of the story over the first, characters actions push the plot along rather than convenient coincidence I do feel that in general the writing style lacks sophistication and subtlety In my advance copy I found a couple of errors that I assume will be fixed on publication Pape has a talent for writing her initimate encounters though, they are steamy and tastefully explicit, though I think at least one of the sex scenes was poorly placed in the storyline Pape s world has so much potential with a mix of fae, werewolves, witches, djinn, trolls, goblins and even orcs but I don t think she provides enough detail to really immerse you in the fantasy world She doesn t effectively explain how the worlds of Overhill and Underhill relate to each other, nor how the other paranormal creatures stand in the parallel system.For me, Motor City Witch is a rather ordinary paranormal romance, but I think fans of the formula will be entertained by it I hope that Pape continues to improve the series as it grows She d left magic behind Once upon a time, Elise Sutton had been a powerful witch and paranormal enforcer Once she d been madly in love with Fae lord Aidan Greene But when Aidan had considered his duties important than their relationship, the love affair ended badly Shortly after, while on the hunt for a rogue demon, Elise was brutalized and almost killed Months later she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl To protect her child and her heart Elise decided to live a nonmagical life Until she meets Aidan again, and he assumes Dina is his daughter When Dina is kidnapped by a racial purity movement, Elise turns to Aidan for help The icy facade she has built around herself shatters at Aidan s touch Together they have to hunt through the human and faery worlds to find Dinaand to discover whether or not they have any kind of chance at a happily ever after Motor City Witch is book 2 in the Urban Arcana seires, and let me tell you, it s just as good as the first one I started reading, pleased to find the story was abut Elise, as I d grown curious about her in Motor City Fae Excited to get to know her and Aidan better, I dug in.Adina, Elise s

about her in Motor City Fae Excited to get to know her and Aidan better, I dug in.Adina, Elise s young daughter, is kidnapped As Aidan, Elise s former lover, had just become aware her daughter existed and he thought she was his , Elise automatically thinks Aidan took her child When she finds out he didn t, my stomach rolled over along with hers Terrified, she joins Aidan on the search for Adina, but telephoning the regular police isn t an option It s obvious someone from Underhill took the little girl to get at Aidan, and trying to find her would be a tricky business.With numerous friends helping, Aidan gives orders and puts a plan into action With a member of his staff a traitor, and also someone from Elise s witchy faction clearly on the side of the baddies, the pair have to be careful who they trust Anyone could pass information to the kidnappers, alerting them to the carefully laid plans.When the kidnapper makes it clear he ll swap Adina for Aidan, and only elise and Aidan can go to Scotland for the swap, everyone is thrown into action They must go through portals, some on this realm, others on Underhill, and hope the abductor doesn t find out Aidan and Elise didn t come alone.Just when you think it s all over and everything is going to work out, a twist comes along You ll root for Aidan, cheer when he succeeds in a second mission, and sigh with the happy ever after.Best Bits Faster and faster the scenery whizzed by, glinting in the moonlight, until it was all silvery blur Great image here Le Fairy, who LOL You ruined everything, you stupid mortal loving sod LMAO Verdict Motor City Witch was a jolly good read that I couldn t put down I enjoyed the kidnap aspect I m not sick, honestly because it gave the book a sharp edge that had me wondering what would happen next, had me thinking about where Adina was and how she was being treated, while at the same time knowing everyone was doing their best to set her free Fab Check out my other listens at

is a very interesting gal, she has been through a lot She really had great strength, especially when it comes to her man or her child I loved her empathy, it really went hand in hand with her healing It would have been nice to seeof her struggle after the attack, it would have made her growthimpressive.The dynamic between all the characters is great The story progresses at a great pace, never a lull The world becomes fuller anddetailed as the series continues Love the mixed narrative, you get a much better feeling for the romance when you have both character s POV The steam is really delicious, even in the midst of all the drama I love the yummy smexy action, this series gives plenty of delightful detail This will seriously warm you up I listened to the audio book, the narrator, Gabra Zackman, does a great job She has distinct voices for each character She does a wonderful job of going with the flow of the story I will definitely be looking forread by her I can not wait to see the next books, you get hints at the lead couples in them Next up is a delicious werewolf I love the world in the Urban Arcana series, the different factions of supernaturals and how they interact with each other especially We learned a lot about the Fae in Motor City Fae, so one would expect to be submersed in the world of witches in Motor City Witch We do, but we also get an even better look at the inner workings of the fae, seeof the shifters and learn of other supernaturals previously unseen in the series.From a romantic aspect, Motor City Witch focuses on Elise, a healer I love the

in the series.From a romantic aspect, Motor City Witch focuses on Elise, a healer witch and her relationship with Aidan, a Fae lord Beyond romance, the thrilling and heartbreaking kidnapping of Elise s daughter Dina is in the forefront Aidan is convinced Dina is his child, hidden away by Elise, but Elise claims Dina is the product of a rape that occurred after their relationship ended More than anything else, Motor City Witch made me fall in love with Aidan again and again He cares for Dina almost instantly, blood relation or no His connection with the child, and the emotions that brings, surpasses both the romance and the action, making the book a truly heartfelt experience That isn t to disparage the hot connection between the adults Aidan and Elise have their relationship issues, but when the clothes start coming off, the world falls away and sexy doesn t begin to describe their connection.I would have liked if the witch aspect of the book has been played up a bit , but that sa matter of personal preference than a complaint about the book itself Motor City Witch is great mix of paranormal romance and supernatural thriller and a wonderful follow up to Motor City Fae I ll definitely be checking out the next book in the Urban Arcana series Motor City Witch is the second book in Pape s series which moves between Detroit and the Fae realm This installment starts out strong with a confrontation between past lovers witch Elise and Fae lord and Detroit portal guardian Aidan Green There is also a fairly strong action packed plot in the background which expands the

guardian Aidan Green There is also a fairly strong action packed plot in the background which expands the conspiracy lead by Elven purists against those who have some Fae blood and has some real emotional moments when several half blood Fae members of the families who aligned against the purists are kidnapped.I enjoyed Motor City Witch, almost as much as the Motor City Fae even though the romance between Elise and Aidan wasn t quite as well done as in the previous book Even though I liked both the leads and their chemistry was good together, the motivation for love scenes was a bitforced in this story possibly due to the fact that the action in the background plot didn t leave much time for quiet moments for the pair to allow their reconnection to buildslowly Instead during the rare downtime between crises for Elise and Aiden early on in the story, there was I just want a distraction sex and Life affirming sex and those tropes always feel like they are forcing the steamy stuff in rather than having them flownaturally But it wasn t a huge detractor because as I mentioned I liked both of the leads and I wanted to see them together So I still am hooked on this world with witches, Fae and werewolves I was happy that the past pair Ric and Meghan have a part to play here and that there are clearly two future pairs waiting for their turn in the spotlight I already have the third book, Motor City Wolf, on pre order Let me first say that faeries aren t really my thing, I discovered this when I read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr That said, the Fae didn t annoy me in this one yay for the author I thought they were at time snobbish and egomaniacs, but well, I get that when I read about royalty as well, so that wasn t really a big deal.I would however have liked if Pape had gone a bit deeper into the paranormal side of the story instead of the romance part There are so many different paranormal beings to Let me first say that faeries aren t really my thing, I

so many different paranormal beings to choose from Fae, witches, werewolves, orcs, all come wirring past, but I felt like the story could have revolved around typical human beings and been just fine as a romance I liked Elise and Aidan as the main characters, though I would have liked to see Elise man up a bitand not jump to weird conclusions sometimes I also liked the girl, Dina, she was a bit mature for her age, but I like smart children and she was definitely intelligent Although I thought her huge magical abilities were a bit too much for an untrained 4 year old.Oh, and if you can t guess who the father is after reading the summary, you should probably read it again it was pretty obvious.I didn t really get why Elise s brother was so angry with Aidan, sure they had broken up and he should be all brotherly protective, but after about 5 years that should sort of pass, right I also assume we ll get to see why he has such a strong dislike for werewolves in a book that centers around him in the series My rating 3 stars I didn t cry at the romance, so I can t give itthan this More like 2.75 stars Motor City Witch is a great read, full of everything you could want in a paranormal romance fun characters, interesting plot, steamy scenes, emotional connections and well written prose.Long time readers of Mills and Boon might find the plot structure a little similar, and it certainly does have a formulaic feel to it in many ways but, as I ve mentioned in previous reviews, this is not necessarily a bad thing Mills and Boon is just a publisher, but we now so well known

reviews, this is not necessarily a bad thing Mills and Boon is just a publisher, but we now so well known that we now associate it as a genre all of its own, and the writing style works This is actually part of a series, but it s the first in the series I ve read, and I didn t actually realize it was part of a series until about half way through We re launched straight into the plot, and within a few pages the author has introduced us to the characters, given us a decent back story and padding the characters out to create a connection for the reader to latch on to It s a great example of a smoothly written, fast paced story if onlywere like this.I normally have a problem reading books out of order, but Motor City Witch, despite being in the middle of the series, has inspired me to go back and read the earlier books Written in such a way that you didn t miss out on any of the story from previous books, and even though you could work out the significant plot points, I don t think it has blown any of the twists and we re left with a hint of what is to come in the next book.The characters are all fun, but again there is that formulaic aspect coming in to play, making Motor City Witch an incredibly fun no brainer , there are some nice twists, but overall it s a book to read for pure light entertainment The story is paced well, with peaks of action, and peaks of relaxation too I ll even go so far as to say that this is a bit of a re reader, it s so inoffensive and light it s the perfect thing to read in between either dark and gritty urban fantasy or sickly sweet romance Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy.http www.fangtastic.co.nz books shop.php paranormal romance motor city witch p11515.html
