Title: Enchanting Wilder
Series: Wild #1
Author: Cassie Graham
Release Date: July 28, 2016
Declan Wilder has never met a witch he didn’t hate. He is in the business of protecting the world from all things paranormal, after all. But what happens when one glimpse at an enchanting McKenna Sawyer sends him spinning? Suddenly, Declan can’t help but question everything he thought he knew about the world he’s been sworn to protect for so long.
Plagued by her parents’ death, McKenna Sawyer has no interest in anything outside of her family’s business and her sister’s happiness. So when she’s assigned to warn a Pursuer about his impending death, she’s less than prepared for the way he shifts her world on its axis. And when more time spent with him leads to more secrets about their world revealed, they must decide how their universes fit together — if at all.
The paranormal world is gearing up for a fight, and both Declan and McKenna have been called to battle. But the question remains — will they be fighting for or against each other?
Enchanting Wilder is a paranormal romance with hints of mythology, undertones of religion and a hot, swoonworthy hero that will have your heart thumping!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Think a cross between Supernatural and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and what you get is Enchanting Wilder.
McKenna is a witch, a good witch, who loves her sister and is dealing with the recent death of her parents. Declan Wilder is a Pursuer (think Dean Winchester) who travels the country with his younger brother hunting supernatural bad guys. McKenna’s witch power is to jump into people’s dreams and give them a push in the direction of good. Only, one day, she is ordered to jump into Declan’s dream and what she sees sends her reeling. Declan and McKenna’s paths cross and sparks fly. With the rest of their Scooby gang of witches, demons, Pursuers and immortals, Declan and McKenna must protect mankind from the baddest of the bad.
Seriously, every time I read about or from the perspective of Declan, I has Dean Winchester in my head. That made reading this even more fun! Cassie Graham took her imagination and creative license and brought us a world of supernatural beings that have you wondering who is really good and who is really bad. Underneath all of the supernatural goodness is the romance blooming between McKenna and Declan. It’s epic from the moment they meet.
I haven’t read any other books written by Cassie Graham, but I’m a believer now. I loved this book and I bet you will, too!
I don’t think I’ll ever forget the relaxed smile on Declan’s lips as he felt the ocean for the first time, or the way he pulled me into his embrace when we finally decided to leave. His needy hands trembled on my leg as we drove back to town because we both knew that was it. Or even the way he looked at me with earnest when he dropped me off at home—promising it wouldn’t be the last time. I won’t forget the forced, dejected smile he had as he waved goodbye because he recognized what he had just promised was a lie. I won’t forget the taillights as he drove around the corner and out of my sight. And, I won’t forget the way my heart ached when I was all alone because I’ve never felt such a sensation before.
I’ll chase those feelings—the ones I shared with Declan. The good and the bad—I’ll pursue those forever. Because they’re some of the best ones I’ve got.
