Book Review: Motor City Witch

She'd left magic behind
Once upon a time, Elise Sutton had been a powerful witch and paranormal enforcer. Once she'd been madly in love with Fae lord Aidan Greene. But when Aidan had considered his duties more important than their relationship, the love affair ended badly. Shortly after, while on the hunt for a rogue demon, Elise was brutalized and almost killed. Months later she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. To protect her child-and her heart-Elise decided to live a nonmagical life. 

Until she meets Aidan again, and he assumes Dina is his daughter. When Dina is kidnapped by a racial purity movement, Elise turns to Aidan for help. The icy facade she has built around herself shatters at Aidan's touch. Together they have to hunt through the human and faery worlds to find Dina...and to discover whether or not they have any kind of chance at a happily ever after. 

Wow! This book caught me from the very first page.  Independent Elise, who is raising her daughter on her own, never wanted Aiden to know about her.  And when he finally sees Dina, she is kidnapped that night.  Aiden and Elise must work together to save her (and possibly his) daughter.

This book is a fast paced romantic suspense that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.  Not only do Elise and Aiden have to rescue Dina, but they have to face their feelings for each other.  This book was equally powerful in the fight scenes as it was in love scenes. 

Ms. Pape also does a wonderful job with her characterizations and world building.  I would love to see more stories set in this world and several of the secondary characters are just begging for their stories to be told.

I highly recommend MOTOR CITY WITCH to anyone that loves a paranormal romantic suspense.  In this case all the ingredients come together in a very enjoyable fashion.

I rate this book a 4.
