Murder has brought Talon, Master of Guardians, as well as Zia, his witch and Master of Witches, to Chicago. The manner of death appears to be a suicide, but Talon is far from ready to close the case. To avenge the Guardian linked to his past, he agrees to take on the assignment, and find her killer.
As they dive deeper into the investigation, they find themselves entering a world where BDSM is the norm. A lifestyle that Zia is uncomfortable with and, rattled by this new development, she is more than ready to return to the Otherworld. But their investigation quickly takes an unexpected twist when they discover that they’re not only hunting a killer but also someone who is controlling supernaturals in Chicago.
Their mission not only brings danger, but also forces Talon to deal with decades old guilt that corrodes his soul. Every event that unfolds only deepens his fight and pushes him to face an ultimate choice—what is more important—his duty to the Otherworld or the witch he holds closest to his heart?

A bewitching romance full of magic and mystery!
As Master of Guardians and Master of Witches in Otherworld, Talon and Zia are sworn to protect humans as well as their own kind from any supernatural threats. When an Otherworld Guardian from the Earthworld is found dead, Talon and Zia are called to the scene and soon discover the identity of the dead guardian is Whitlyn, the mother of Talon’s son Kyden. Talon vows to seek revenge for her murder and together with his lover Zia, he’ll start an investigation to uncover the mysteries surrounding Whitlyn’s death. This investigation will lead them to a world of BDSM, rogue supernaturals and dangers that will have Talon reexamining his emotions and where his heart truly lies.
This was a non-stop, sexy thrill ride! I couldn’t put this story down, but that’s usually the case when I read a Stacey Kennedy book. The characters are captivating and the world created in A Warrior’s Witch is exceptional. Talon and Zia are already involved when the story begins so you don’t have the developing relationship with the sexual tension you find in some books, these two characters are very much in love and waste no time heating things up! One of my favorite scenes is when Zia and Talon step foot into the Leather Dungeon Club and are introduced to the realm of BDSM. Needless to say things get hotter in the bedroom for them after that night. Through all the conflict and danger, Talon and Zia are put to the test and realize their love for each other is above all else and vow never to take it for granted. The romance between Talon and Zia is sweet and fiery, they respect and love each other despite their demanding duties, I fell in love with them from page one!
A WARRIOR’S WITCH is an emotionally charged book that touches your heart and keeps you on the edge with its element of suspense. We see a conflicted hero with emotional baggage and a strong heroine who is adventurous but can hold her own. One of the things that really stands out in this book is the unique supernatural world where witches, vampires and werewolves all coexist for the greater good and are not out to kill each other. I found the world building fascinating and the writing phenomenal. Filled with passion and excitement, A WARRIOR’S WITCH is a must read for anyone who loves their romance with a little magic and danger!
