McKenna has gone through some horrible times, dealing with the death of her parents and wanting to protect and look after the sister she loves dearly. And on top of that she is a witch! But a good witch who can go into people’s dreams and push them in the direction of good. But when she has to go into Declan’s dream, a young man who pursues bad supernaturals, she is shocked by what she sees. This leads to Declan and McKenna, along with a whole host of other supernaturals, to come together. The c ...more

Wow. Just when I thought Cassie Graham had found her groove in contemporary romance, she went and wrote a paranormal romance and... well... I think she hit the sweet spot. She found her home. Enchanting Wilder is a fun, wild ride with twists and turns in every chapter. I can confidently say this is Graham's best book to date!

First let me just say that I coined this author as the modern day Walt Disney after her first book, because seriously, she knows how to write the sweet, hearts and flowers r

Thank you, Cassie Graham for providing me a copy of this amazing book in exchange for my honest review. Where on earth do I begin?!

I love romance books. I’m a complete sucker for them. Especially paranormal romance books. This one…THIS ONE WAS ONE OF THE BEST ONES I HAVE READ! I found myself falling in love with Declan. Like for real? Who falls in love with a character in a book? Me, that’s who! McKenna and Declan are adorably cute and it makes me totally swoon. Declan kept reminding me of Dean

Enchanting Wilder is a paranormal romance with hints of mythology, undertones of religion and a hot, swoonworthy hero that will have your heart thumping!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Think a cross between Supernatural and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and what you get is Enchanting Wilder.

McKenna is a witch, a good witch, who loves her sister and is dealing with the recent death of her parents. Declan Wilder is a Pursuer (think Dean Winchester) who travels the country with his yo

Paranormal love at its best. Sometimes in life we make choices that ultimately leads us to the one thing that will either bring us to our need with love or snatch the one thing in life that can bring us that type of love. In this story the super natural was taken to a whole new level where love is not the only thing on the line. In this story Cassie brings out the world of witches and dreams, vampires, angels, daemons, and those who hunt the guilty and protect the innocent from that which goes b ...more

This book...omg, this book! These characters are so well written I still find myself wanting to be friends with them a month after reading! The banter among the characters makes me think this author has been listening in to conversations with my bestie! McKenna and Declan have such an intricate relationship and while I generally despise the insta-love aspect of any romance...Cassie gives us a WHY behind it! The supernatural aspect to this novel was seamless. I love the world created here! From a ...more

McKenna Sawyer is a Strix, a witch who helps guide people down the right path through dreams. She is assigned to Declan Wilder, a Pursuer who hunts and eliminates the bad in the world like demons and ghosts. Little do McKenna and Declan know, they will be pulled into a fight that has been going on for millennia and they are a much bigger part than either ever imagined.

The book was a nice change of pace from some of the dark romance books that I have been reading recently. There are religious ove

Magic.

Magic is what this book is about. And, magic is what Cassie Graham created on every single page of Enchanting Wilder.

Like a moth to the flame, I was immediately drawn in. From the very first page, Enchanting Wilder is an amazing, emotional roller coaster read. The ups and downs, the twists and turns will have you wishing you wishing you were on this journey with McKenna, Declan, Candy, Wood and Kai. It was incredibly refreshing to read an original story that's unlike any other book in th

Oh my.... where to start! There is so much I want to gush about when it comes to this book, about McKenna & Declan. But I don't want to give anything away, because you have got to experience this book. The lore, the monsters, the action. The compelling and gripping characters. This a fantastic, page turning ride.

This book is so different from anything that Cassie Graham has released before, but she is certainly in her element. Enchanting Wilder contains components that will satisfy a little bit of everyone’s cravings. There is a dash of romance, a dose of paranormal antics, and even a splash of philosophical musings. I fell in love with the main characters, McKenna and Declan, but also with their tribe, and I have no doubt that other readers will as well.

Personally, I found that this book started off just a little slow. It wasn’t bad, so please don’t think that’s what I’m saying. The thing is, though, in the first book of a series (particularly a paranormal or supernatural type series), the author has an entire world to create. There are so many myths and legends about different types of beings out there that they have to generate both a setting and a baseline for things. You have to know what legend they’re going with. Witches, for example, are ...more

Cassie Graham has been on my watch list for the past year. Her contemporary stories, that are both deeply emotional and suspenseful, have captured my attention. So naturally, I was so excited to see how she fared with her first paranormal story. I am happy to say that I adored this book! Cassie nailed it! Enchanting Wilder is a fantastic story.

Everything about this book made me happy. The characters were brilliant. I loved McKenna and her sister Candy, Declan and his brother Wood, and the many d

I have so much to say about this book, I don't even know where to begin.

Cassie and I became friends over the course of her writing this book, and I was one of the privileged few who got to beta read it with her/for her. Cassie, while still honing in on her talent, is an excellent story teller and this book proves it! Her other works are good too, don't get me wrong. But Wilder is her best yet, and there is more to come! She's not done and it's only going to get better from here!

I was lucky enough to receive a ARC copy of Enchanting Wilder, and I was so excited to read this book! Cassie Graham's writing style is exactly like her personality: spunky and full of life! I really enjoyed the "voice" of this book and I could definitely see a lot of "Cassie" in the pages which is great. I love authors who have an authentic sound to their books, and Cassie definitely has that!

You've never danced with someone you've just met. It makes you nervous and you're wondering if you're going to get caught up in it—in me.

Ohhhh my god! I haven't read a paranormal romance since high school (so 7 years ago) and this book brought back all those feelings memories and just overall joy of reading this genre. The only difference is that this is my FAV genre, NA.

I should mention that this is my first Cassie novel and because this book was so amazing, no doubt will I give the others a sh

Enchanting Wilder by Cassie Graham is a very original paranormal romance. There is a little bit of everything in this book from witches to demons to angels to hybrids. This book contains paranormal beings galore!
McKenna is the witch that this story is mostly centered around. She is a Strix, which is a good witch that tries to help people choose the good path. She and her sister are left to run the family business and carry out their legacy, but then, things start getting weird. Declan is

Man. I have been seriously trying to write this review for days. I had the extreme pleasure of beta reading this book. Cassie has come so far in her writing. Her previous books have been incredible but you can just tell that this genre is it for her. She has the flexibility that you don't always have when writing contemporary. The writing in this book is so expressive and just plain fun with a hint of suspense to keep you guessing about what is actually about to happen. You can just tell Graham ...more

I have read all of Cassie's books and was so excited to see her take a chance on writing a paranormal ( her other books are contemporary romance) and she completely blew it out of the park!!! I absolutely loved Enchanting Wilder and cannot wait for the next installment. I'm not going to go into the storyline because I'm sure you have already read the description but here are a few of my thoughts :)

This book is a big one for me. It is the first book I have read from this author and it’s also the first paranormal that I have read from beginning to end. That makes for a lot to process to write a review, so I will keep it short.
I don’t know if it’s enough to make me a fan of the genre, but I can say that I loved Declan and McKenna. The writing in this book is some of the best I have seen. I will definitely be reading her other books to find out what I have been missing! The book was a little

I am new to Cassie Graham but I can say that I will be checking out her other works. She managed to create a world that drew you in and made you believe that anything was possible. There were a few (small) spots that lagged for me but that is simply personal preference.

Declan and McKenna are two well developed characters that I found it easy to relate to. I have to say that I enjoy stories that involve siblings in the paranormal world. I think they give us an insight into the characters that we

Enchanting Wilder, reminded me a lot of Supernatural, the tv series. Declan, is a rough around the edges, wham bam thank you ma'am kind of guy. Then McKenna waltzes in and he goes arse end over tea kettle for her, this whole new perspective of Declan comes out. Let me tell you, I was swooning HARDCORE! “Now your song is the only one I hear again, and I’m so grateful for your symphony.”-Declan Wilder

I have to say, I have not read a lot of paranormal as of late. However, I am so glad I read this. It has completely put me back on track for looking at more paranormal stories. This book is romantic, it is creative, and it will definitely leave you reeling with the twists around each corner. You are sucked into this world until everything around you disappears besides this book. I was completely oblivious to anything around me while reading, which is bad seeing as how it was dinner time at home. ...more

Phew! Buckle-up and get ready for a wild ride! I will admit that at first I thought I was way in over my head, because I never read PNR, but I was quickly swept away in the world of McKenna, a witch with uncanny abilities and Declan Wilder, Pursuer, in other words demon/monster/vampire hunter.
Not only the chemistry between McKenna and Declan is off the chart, but the twists kept coming until the end.
Now I can't wait to read more about the other fantastic characters. I definitely need more Wood,

This. If you haven't read it yet, you need to. It is a great paranormal/romance read. And...there will be a second one in the Winter of 2016!!!! I can't wait! I hate to give too much away in a review, because everyone should make up their own mind in regards to liking a book or not, but this book was layer upon layer of surprise all throughout. If you like demons, angels, witches, this is your book :)
