Ahhhhh, another Jade Calhoun novel that kept me up all night finishing it!!!

I have been in love with this series since I came across book one and read it within the day. Deanna never fails to disappoint with her humor and the raw emotions she makes you feel right alongside the characters.

I love all of Deanna's books and this one didn't let me down! Can you say hottttttt?! I swear the magic between Kane and Jade could knock me outta my chair.

You can't make a mistake with this series!

Kade and Jade are getting married--or are they? Weddings are hard enough to plan let alone plan in a hurry. But things are going well--if you don't count the mother of the groom on a mission to collect a neck-full of beads from Mardi Gra partiers and wear them to the formal wedding. Then, of course, there is the interruption from her boss to take on a rescue mission--now--in the middle of the ceremony. Nothing can change her mind.

The mission turns life-changing for both of them. The question is

Excellent story! I have been waiting for the wedding of Jade and Kane! Will it go off without a hitch, please! This action packed story has Jade in trouble as well as Pyper, Kat and more. Ghost are creating problems, Chessandra disrupts the wedding but we do know things will turn out fine. Lucien will get help and him and Kat will have a happy ending. With all the action, romance, twists to the plots you still have humor! I love the wedding which finally happens! Read and enjoy this excellent ...more
At the end of the previous novel in Deanna Chase’s Jade Calhoun series, the Angel Council blackmailed Jade Calhoun and Kane Rouquette into becoming shadow walker agents for the council. Jade’s fractured half-soul, a condition caused by the Council itself, was in imminent danger of being completely possessed by the ghost of a murdered sex witch and needed to be healed. Since Jade possesses angel blood, only the Angel Council could approve and conduct such a procedure.

So a very nasty version of

Hurricane Shelia blows into town and Nola is about as prepared as anything can be. Kane receives a permanent wedding present whether he likes it or not. And we learn that sometimes, the one that's needed most to save the day isn't always who we think of first.

I'm not sure why I keep reading this series. When Jade is not waiting for Kane to make her strong, she is giving up on her self. When it is not about Kane and Jade, it is pretty good. The other characters are good, but Jade's usability to function without Kane is seriously annoying .

I'm enjoying the hell out of this series. Great world building, fast paced plots, and terrific characters. Not as funny or sexy as some of my favorite UF/PNR series, but solid reads.

The Poor Girl Cannot Catch a Break

They were both stood up at the altar! Or more accurately pulled away right before the I Do's. No wonder Jade is always angry. But she will do anything to help an innocent victim, even postpone her wedding. This witch has power and heart, and a boat load of powerful friends to back her up. I love this series.

Looking into the face of danger again! Will Jade and Kane make it to say I do? She and her friends are all back into danger together again. How can you not enjoy this series. I'm hooked!

Intense..heart pounding !

Jade and Kane are all set to get married. Unfortunately for them their wedding day is torn apart when they are taken by the High Angel and pressed into a service they did not expect.

This review is for both the audiobook and the ebook since I read/listened to both. First I would like to say that a lot of reviews stated Jade had an emerald ring and this book said diamond. I was thinking it was an emerald with diamonds all around it. Anyway, moving on, in the last book it seemed like things were beginning to be repetitive. Well, hang in there because this book is totally different than the others. There was so much going on that at some points I had to pause and reread or ...more

Another great entry in the Jade Calhoun series. 4 stars because, imho, a bit too much of Jade & Kane in bed rather than out saving their friends/themselves/New Orleans/the world from baddies.
Dec 21, 2016 rated it it was ok
OK, this is getting tedious now. Jade is the world's most powerful white witch, but every time she turns around someone is in trouble and she's the only one in the world who can save them. And (supposedly) lesser beings push her around as they please.

I continue to enjoy these books because I like the characters and the setting . They are not deep and sometimes you can figure out what's going on very quickly but they are none the less entertaining and that is all I want. I have found that listening and reading are both great fun with this series. The narrator, Traci Odem, is fantastic as she gives depth to the characters through her vocalizations of them. You cannot be bored when you know the backdrop is New Orleans, though I would be happy ...more

Shadows of Bourbon Street is the 5th book in the Jade Calhoun series. In my opinion, it's the best book in the series (so far). Deanna Chase is great at keeping the action moving in her novels so you never get bored. Her characters are multi-layered and interesting. In Shadows, we finally see Kane stepping up with his own story line and issues to deal with rather than being the long-suffering, patiently supporting fiancee to Jade. You can read this book on its own, but I think to get the most ...more

This was another exciting Jade Calhoun book. I loved seeing Jade and Kane starting off as a team in this book. They work well together, and definitely make each other stronger. In true Jade Calhoun fashion, nothing in this story is plain or simple. The obstacles and drama that I have loved in all the other books, continue in this one. However, this one has some new characters and supernatural beings, and it was awesome! It was very cool to see the worlds of all the different types of supes ...more

In Short: Jade and Kane finally step up to take their romance to an official level when they are whisked away and their lives are changed dramatically. Both struggle to adjust to Kane's new status while searching for a way to free another witch who is withering away to nothing. Literally.

So the story this time was good, but, I am not liking how Jade is evolving. For a very powerful white witch she always still seems to be lacking. Then, the author is starting to make her sound older than her

Out of the full series, at the beginning I was doubting another good book. I was beginning to let my mind run away with me wondering where the story was going to go. It was another several hurdles that Jade and Kane had to jump. Throughout the series, I had a feeling there was more to Kane than just a dream-walker. Did I expect him to be a demon hunter...NO! However, once I got into the story again, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story was intense but it flowed nicely. I will download book 6 ...more

This novel is the start of a new story arc within the series. What do you do when you wedding is interrupted before you get to say I do? Deal with the problem of course. In this novel Chase introduces us to the other coven of New Orleans, The Coven Pointe Witches. They even have their own series, so this is a crossover type novel. What makes these witches different? They are sex witches who deal in sex magic. The reader is also introduced to The Brotherhood of the Dagger which is made up of ...more

It's the fifth book, the protagonist shoud have evolved, instead she is always less strong, she is always abused by the persons closest to her and she gladly takes it, now she is attacched, her fiance violated and she still takes it? Forced an incubs and she saves the niece? Instead of demanding retribution? Instead of being respected and protect those important to her? Orrible.
The fiance is a negotatior and he does nothing too. She know nothing and she doesn't educate herself!!

I have to admit that the main reason I read this series is Kane. He's a well-developed character and it was great to see him having a more active role in the paranormal goings on that are always surrounding Jade. The storyline between Lucien and Kat was a welcome departure as well. The challenge that I had and what kept me from rating it 5 stars is that I felt that there were so many storylines going on, none really got felt fully fleshed out. The book was fast paced, but each twist and turn ...more

Fantastic Paranormal Romantic Adventure, Jade Calhoun Style!

I honestly don't know how Deanna Chase does it! Another wonderful romp with Jade & Kane and their family and friends! With each book in this series, it gets better and better! The paranormal adventures are unique and exciting in each book. Witches, Sleep walkers, Shadow walkers, Demons, Black Magic and Mardi Gras make this a paranormal adventure like no other! I eagerly await Book 6! I highly recommend anything written by Deanna

Almost didn't finish but glad I did

The book started out with a little too much sex but I went back and finished it and glad I did. Are and Roman have gone through so much that I needed a happy ending. Roma is turned into an obvious who needs a sex witch to exchange power. The witch who cursed him promised to remove the curse of they bring back her sister from another dimension .
They have to fight demons and black magic but love pervails. I won't tell you the ending... Read it yourself. You will
