While on the hunt for a book of magic that could well destroy the Compact that gives them their power, she meets Conchobar MacNessa, a ten-thousand-year-old Faerie warrior, and suddenly she’s not quite so invisible.

3.5 stars!

Em/Emily is a witch, and she descends from a very powerful family of witches who maintain the Compact agreement between the spirit world and humans. She is human with a very strong empath ability. She is much more reserved than her sister Amelia, who was a MC in the previous book, Triad. She has to be in order to stay sane with all the background noise of everyone's feelings and thoughts around her.

She is a bit of a scholar, and she has had visions of a special book with symbols, and

I liked it, especially the part with the other dimension
This one started slow but progressed really fast. Em's character seems familiar with other heroines I've read about, the one misconstrued as the shy one, always outshone by her sister, but there's no hatred, just plain weariness on her part.

What she did was understandable, get away from it all and focus on her research. I began to like her character a lot because I saw how passionate she is about books, and I liked it how she slept with Con without expecting anything from him, just to try being

hello let me tell you the emergency kit rules for these books the kit includes tissues, ice cream, a stress ball and sometimes on rare occasions pillow to scream in. in this book you'll need the tissue ice cream and stress ball i did not need the pillow.

I read this to fulfill a challenge requirement. I didn't read the first book, but I don't really feel like I missed much (except maybe some m/m/f loving, lol). This was an interesting story, and while I don't mind sex in my stories (duh), it was kind of overkill. It's sweet that Con was Em's Faerie stalker for a few months before they actually met. Then again, she'd been dreaming about him for years, so it was fate. And normally, I don't have a problem with insta-love in PNR, but it seemed too q ...more

I enjoyed this naughty-racy-raw-erotic-fantasy read thoroughly. The conflict was not as dire as the previous book but exciting just the same. I felt so pampered, precious and cherished through Em's POV and Con's action. Being a Chavez, Em needed to make sure the Compact, handed by goddess Freya to protect human, never to be broken. Accidently crossed over a Fae's magic book, Em drew the Fae Queen to her attention. Con, ten thousand yr old Fae warrior, Queen's Favored and alpha male in eve

3.5 stars. I enjoyed this, but it didn't as much of a story as the first book. The night they officially meet and *bam* they're together, so not a whole lot of romance. The action part was pretty tame and wrapped up pretty quickly. Definitely more erotica than romance.

We meet Simone, the lead from the next book, very briefly. I am happy to see Jayce, Con's best friend, will be turning up again in Threat of Darkness, as I wanted to hear more about him.

Another good book by Dane. This is the second book of "Witches Knot" and it was every bit good as the first. (Actually thought it was better) Great story line, and thought the romantic erotic scenes were better then the first.

The story continues with Em, who is an empathy searching for a book that can brake her families witch magic. While searching, she falls for someone that needs the book too....

Looking forward to the 3rd book!

I found Em to be a bit annoying most of the time, with all of her insecurities.

I liked Lee in the first book in this series, but not so much in this one. She and the rest of her family did treat Em like an invalid, and it was just sad to watch. But what was worse was how Em defended them for doing it.

Even for an erotic romance, this had too much sex and too little story. It was a great plot with great characters but the sex scenes interrupted the flow of the story.

Lauren Dane's later work is much better. So is the first book in this series, Triad.

It was funny and a bit fristrating as a book...

em when she was not whining she was trying to find herself...and then she was losing herself and then re finding it.

on the other hand Con is...between wanting to kill him and wanting to sex him up...he's a funny guy.
I have enjoyed the first book and this one doesn't disappoint... The author does create a great PRN "new world" of magic and... Great balance between a storyline, new world and characters oh goodness, and the heat...

Very imaginative and creative... great one to read.

A good afternoon read but things just seemed to happen and conclude way too fast without any opportunity to build tension into the story ... I don't expect an epic but this was just a little to easy for me

A little slow, but I'm enjoying the series. It's a pleasure to read Ms. Dane's work.

This book was much better than the first book Triad! Still only gets 4 stars though. Hopefully the third book will be just as good as A Touch of Fae if not better.

Good continuation of the first, however the mystery/danger could have been brought more to the forefront instead of waayyyy in the background.
