Charmed In the Big Easy

 Under the Rainbow by Paisley Smith

Novice witch MeLeah McKinney is on a mission to retrieve a talisman from the grave of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. The relic must be energized via a sex-magick ritual—a tall order since MeLeah has no partner. She decides to gather energy at a live sex show on Bourbon Street. She doesn’t count on help from Celestine Laveau’s ghost, who’s crossed the rainbow bridge to bring ecstasy to the young witch—and serve her own agenda.

Defeating an ancient vampire requires not one talisman, but two…

The Mambo’s Door by Delilah Devlin

Ingrid Kassel isn’t in complete control of her witch powers—especially after drinking a double shot of vampire blood. Attempting to retrieve a candle buried with the Voodoo Queen’s daughter, Ingrid angers the spirit guarding the tomb. She finds herself in a shadowy limbo, where the daughter Marie lives in fear of a demon who also desires the relic. In desperation Marie tricks Ingrid, captures her, seduces her, shows her exquisite pleasure while charging the candle with sex magick…for Marie’s own attempt at freedom from the world of the dead.


 I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. 

What I liked:

This book is the second book in a series and lacked nothing for it. The novella took off from where it began, but you are introduced to new characters and more sexy f/f scenes. This book takes the vampire and witch story combo to new heights with some voodoo ghosts and loas with agendas of their own.

What I didn't:

It ended and I have to wait for the next installment. (cries a little)


This book was a worthy continuation for a series that is right up there with Laurel K. Hamilton in writing quality and pure sexiness. I loved the interaction of the characters and the raw passion of the erotic scenes. The authors again divide up the novella, so you get to meet two sets of characters. Excellent read!



  1. Guess this answers my question! :) Whee!
