Early ARC: Beguiled by Darynda Jones

Feb 21, 2021

A Paranormal Women's Fiction with a bit of class, and a lot of sass, for anyone who feels like age is just a number!

Newly indoctrinated witch, Defiance Dayne, discovers there’s more to life after forty than she'd ever imagined possible. Especially if one is a charmling, one of only three in the world, with enough magics to make her a target for every power-hungry warlock out there. When one of them sends a hunter to town, she knows it’s time to take her talents seriously before the hunter takes her life.

She decides she has three things to do before she can die. Find out who killed her beloved grandmother, teach her BFF the finer points of spellcasting before she blows up the world, and figure out how serious her relationship with the Adonis living in her basement really is. If it’s heading in the direction she’s hoping for, she can die happy. Though, admittedly, she’d rather not. Die. Happy or otherwise.

None of that will matter, however, if she can’t figure out how to foil the supernatural assassin who’s been sent for her. Until then, it’s business—and hopefully romance—as usual. Now if she can only figure out how to tame a lacuna wolf.



Beguiled is another wonderful story in the Betwixt and Between series!  Jones delivers her signature laughs and right out, "Didn't see that coming!" throughout the story.  The sexy, Roane is back and better than ever. Defiance finally comes to grips with her magic and works out her relationship issues with the tasty shifter. Beguiled has just the right amount of mystery and steaminess. I am thrilled that Annette will have her own story in the next book.
