I enjoyed this book, the storyline was great and held my attention. I loved the hint of Paranormal we got from the Sisters of the Sacred Heart. They seem like a bunch of fun women who like to get up mischief by helping the people around them find love. In Dark and Stormy its Serena’s turn to help her Co-workers Reddick and Regina realize there is more to their relationship then business. Reddick and Regina are your typical workaholics, but one stormy night changes everything, and business ...more

I enjoyed reading this book, the story pulled you in quickly, and kept you hooked, however, the ending also came just as quickly and left you wondering what was next? This is it? I felt like there could have/should have been more about the Sisters of the Sacred Heart and what their larger role is in the series. They seem like they play a pivotal role in the series but we didn't learn much about them, how they came together and w

Besides the fact that Felicia Starr Frame received months of publicity and book promotion services and refuses to pay for them, I do have a little something to say about her newest release..

I expected way more of this novella, especially considering her first novel was decent. I think Felicia Starr Frame had potential as an novelist until she thought she could publish a book once a month. Her creativity hit a severe downward spiral after that.

I think it's obvious. Readers will love (or at least

ARC for Honest Review

Dark and Stormy is one of those pleasant reads that hits you unexpectedly. When I first started I thought "this is one of those typical romance stories", but it wasn't. I found myself engaged and immersed in the story. It has a cute and enticing quality that hooks you. The story line, was mixed with paranormal qualities but taking place in and under normal circumstances. I liked seeing the interactions between the characters and enjoyed their story from start to finish. It w

What I Loved About This Book: This was a simple, quick, easy-going read for me. All the characters are enjoyable and likeable plus the story is well-written and engaging. I loved the suspense between Regina and Reddick and Felicia Starr does not disappoint when they finally have their moment. One thing that stood out to me was the realness between Regina and Reddick. Sometimes I feel the author goes a little too crazy with the love scenes. They can seem unrealis

Serena and her husband Michelangelo runs and owns a sale company, where they have excellent team leaders. But Serena is more than just a female, she’s a witch too. And she has noticed something… There’s tension between her two sales leaders; Regina and Reddick, although if you ask them, hell will freeze over first before anything happens between them. So Serena decides – with some help from her sisters in her coven – to give them a nudge in the right direction. Now all they need is the right ...more

I do love myself a steamy story and this was definitely that. I never really know what to expect when reading N.A. but this one was great. I think the fact that there was a paranormal aspect to it helped integrate the story for me.

This was a short story but for some reason it didn't feel like it to me. I felt like it was a whole novel, which was good because most short stories or novellas are just filler stories that aren't necessarily needed to understand other books in the story. I don't feel

A modern day coven of witches that use their casting for good and love. Serena, a co-owner of a business, noticed that two of her best employees, Regina and Reddick, were very competitive with each other. She looked a little deeper and noticed they had an attraction towards the other. Regina an

Felicia Starr has shown her diversity as a writer with another well written story in a rather different genre than her first series. Dark and Stormy was eloquently written and easy to read. The crescendo of excitement as the story progresses grabs hold of the reader and pulls them into the story and along for the wild ride. It is steamy and romantic and full of fantasy while maintaining a sense of believability and reality. Again she leaves the reader wanting more and lucky for us, there will be ...more

First, I would like to thank the author Felicia Starr for giving me this book for an honest review. I enjoyed this book, normally I have issues with novellas, short stories, because usually I find them lacking. Felicia did a great job, the characters are well developed and the story flowed nicely. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Dark and Stormy is a very quick book about a love spell. When I started reading and saw that a love spell was at play, I was thinking “oh no”, but I was pleasantly surprised that once the spell was cast the Regina and Reddick didn’t automatically start falling over themselves to get to the other person. It didn’t feel over the top or crazy cheesy. It was just a quick story about two people finally seeing how great they are for each other.

Regina and Reddick are both total workaholics. They live

Review: 5 stars

General: I absolutely love this cover and had to start with that first. It’s beautiful and drew me right into wanting to know what secrets it held. The book didn’t let me down at all! I absolutely love the concept of the series. It’s original and entertaining without being unbelievable. I think the coven may have been my favorite part but I did love the book as a whole as well. My complaint? TOO SHORT!

The book starts off with a bang

It’s started really good! The story seemed to just build and build. I was hoping it would continue to build at that steady pace…but it didn’t. Once it hit that climax, everything went really fast. I didn’t like how fast things progressed once they started making out. It was made clear very early on in the book that they did not like each other. Then it turned into intsa-love. That right there is what turned me off.

It didn’t seem consistent with their chara

Let me start by saying I am usually against paranormal. They don't normally strike interest for me although I try and try. Felicia Starr swooped me in and kept me going until the last page. I finished it in two sittings.

Every month the sisters of the Sacred Hearts Coven gather with one thing in mind: ignite that flame that has died and spark up a romance. Regina becomes their target and her boss, Serena is determined to get her to loosen up and give Reddick a chance.

I received this book as a goodreads contest giveaway. I liked it. For a short book it had detail, you knew about the characters, and then it got steamy! The epilogue felt rushed, but over all a good book.

Wow!! I wasn’t sure how I was going to like this book as I have not yet really read books involving witches. I love it!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

She is convinced that her two employees have an attraction for each other and they just need a little help opening their eyes. So she takes it upon herself to cast a spell that helps them to open up their hearts. Regina is her top sales person along with

Serena is a Sister in the Scared Hearts Coven and asked her Sister's to help cast a spell to bring Reddick and Regina together. She feels if they get together, then their whole lives will become the better, at work and play.

There’s nothing like a few witches getting you to open your eyes, and pay a little less attention to work, and a little MORE attention to the person you’re attracted to at work. This is exactly what the sisters of the Sacred Hearts Coven did for Regina and Reddick. Sure, they paid plenty of attention to each other, but as rivals in business. They were missing the heat between the two of them that everyone else saw. So, the coven decided to give them a little nudge.

As their boss, who is also Regi

Regina and Reddick were hard workers. Usually one or both were top salesperson for the month. Regina worked so hard that she didn’t allow time for a romantic relationship. Little did she know that magic was on her side. A hurricane was heading straight for the office and both Regina and Reddick were stuck inside. Their attraction was heating up and there was no denying it anymore. Will the storm bring them close or finish something

This was a great story to read. I was hoping for a little bit more magic. Don't get me wrong there is magic that happened in many ways, and those red heels are the key of this whole thing. This is well written and kept me turning page after page. I would have given it 5 stars if I would have got a little bit more witchiness, but I truly give it 4.5 stars because it truly kept me reading. The love that happens is sweet and there is steamingness that happens that would make anyone move in their ...more
