Bewitching the Enemy is the first book I have read by Dawn Chartier, but seeing as it is also the first book of the Vieux Carré Witch Sisters series, this time focusing on Storm Morgeaux and Dr. Nathan Davis. I am pretty sure it won't be my last.
Initially bought together in a work capacity, Nate senses there is something a little off about his contractor Storm, especially after shaking hands with her, he gets the shock of his life and a branding on his palm that wasn't there before.
A hurricane had begun to brew, and her name was Storm Morgeaux.
Storm has a lot going on in her life at the moment, what with her mom's sudden non-responsiveness after a family get-together, the potential collapse of the family business she is responsible for. As well as feeling responsible for 3 sisters who aren't in the know about the financial crisis the business is in. As such, the last thing she needs is a pushy, sexy, Doctor/Client marking her palm, and then accusing her of being capable of things she had only ever previously believed happened in fiction.
"First Witches now Warlocks. Whats next, Unicorns?"
This is an entertaining, well-plotted, funny and sometimes sexy read. The characters and their development offer plenty of scope for the future books, and bearing in mind you have sisters Brye, Rose and Dusti Morgeaux who have also just discovered their witchy powers and origins, the directions their stories could go a numerous, especially if you take into account you also have Warlocks, Shifters and Paladins added into the mix at this stage as well.
The only slight niggles I have, are firstly the fact that everything important pretty much happens over the space of several days, and personally I felt it would have worked better with a longer time-frame. Secondly, I also felt the sisters reaction to the discovery of their new-found powers and their families past a little lacking in reaction. I still really enjoyed it though, I was just looking for a little more emotion and less acceptance.
"All great things are worth waiting for."
I can't wait too see which sister is up next (although part of me is hoping for Brye), I am looking forward to seeing where Dawn takes the Morgeaux Sisters stories next.
ARC generously provided via Netgalley, it was my pleasure to provide the above honest review.(
When Storm Morgeaux is late returning home from work she never anticipates the chain of events that will unfold. A chain of events that involves spells, evil warlocks, new found abilities and a sexy doctor. A doctor who just so happens to hunt warlocks on the side. When Storm and Nathan become acquainted in many aspects of their lives, the attraction is instant but something isn’t right and Nate’s warlock warning device is working overtime.
I liked the characters and the general storyline but I must admit that I was expecting it to hold more magic; considering the Morgeaux sisters are new to their witchy-abilities, they seemed to take it a bit too much in their stride. I also felt certain parts of the story seemed to building up to more but faded away a little. But that said, it does hold some surprises and I'm hopeful elements of the story will continue as the series does. Dawn Chartier has created a likeable cast of characters, a story with potential and one with feeling. I look forward to seeing where she takes the sisters' journey next, Brye in particular.

As for the story itself - it's got good bones. There is potential here and I am hoping this first book is a set up for the series that will continue to engross readers with tales of witches, warlocks, warmaids, paladins and other types of paranormal creatures. New Orleans is the perfect setting for these types of stories. We have four sisters who are (unbeknownst to them) hybrid witches and warlocks. The girls' mother has kept them ignorant and hidden from the warlocks, who are evil and kill witches. When a tragedy happens, the girls are thrown into this new world and must adjust their beliefs quickly.
Our heroine, Storm Morgeaux, is a contractor. I liked Storm for the most part. I liked that she wasn't the typical female heroine that is uber girly. She is a tough chick and is not afraid to swing a sledgehammer. And our hero, Nathan Davis is a pediatric doctor and paladin. While I liked both of these characters, I wanted more. I wanted more backstory, more details, more personality traits... particularly with Nathan. We know he had a very difficult and abusive childhood, and he lets it slip that he has never received a Christmas gift. There was lots of room there to expound on his past and make him a more appealing, yet tortured, hero. I just like those uber detailed stories which I know I am not usually getting in a short book like this. But the more details there are, the less the dialogue seems stilted and the more I connect with the characters. So even though I liked the characters, I would have liked to see more character development.
Along those lines - I would have also liked a little more explanation. What's a paladin? What's their origin? What powers do the warlocks have? What powers do the girls have as witches? Storm has this special power that may have something to do with rewinding time, or reading psychic residue from items, but neither of those are really explained. What's the deal w/ the mating symbol? How does it work? What effects does it have? I'll stop here because getting a little redundant by this point.
So I think the series has potential, and I will keep reading to see if I get that "more" that I'm looking for.
Storm is late for her family’s ritual and her mom ends up in the hospital. She owns a contracting company that is currently restoring a building for Dr. Nathan’s surgical center for children. Her mom hasn't told Storm and her sisters they are witches.
Nathan is not only a doctor but also hunts Warlocks. He’s confused by the signals Storm sets off.
I thought this story was exciting. In fact, I couldn't put it down. The main characters pull you in along with a fabulous cast of secondary characters. I really liked the raccoon.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about witches, sexy doctors, and enjoys great story telling.
