A fun cute story

Overpriced for the length but descriptive, original and fun. Maddy, Bubba, Sandy and Aegis are a delight. I'm captivated and the world building rocks!

Crazy short, it's really just laying the foundation for the series. But I enjoyed it. It feels a little young, maybe New Adult, but I'm gonna give the first full book in the series a chance. ...more
Cute start --

I found the cjinn (pretty much djinn in form of a cat) to be one I want to read most *lol*. Probably because a gorgeous vampire who used to be Apollo's servant to be a little too 'perfectly boring' as a plot for me.

BUT, the first novel of this story seems to have a mystery to it? SO maybe this is more of cozy-mystery with a side of paranormal territory; which can be interesting. Let's see how it goes.
This was a funny, short start to this series. Maddy has had enough of the rules and regulations in her condo and enough of her creepy ex-husband spying on her and decides on a whim, following a drunken night with her best friend, to buy a run down mansion on the island of Bedlam. It needs a lot of work doing to it, but she feels she needs a project just like this to take her mind off things, but there's more to this house than just crumbling walls and peeling paint!

A nice little prequel story for a new series starting new year by Galenorn. I'm looking forward to reading it.

I really enjoyed this short story. Maddy is so fun and i feel as if i can come to connect with her in a special way, Maddys friend Sandy reminds me of a really close friend of mine. Bubba (OMG) i love this kitty and I can't wait to see what kinda trouble they get into.
Prequel to the Bewitching Bedlam series.
maybe because it was too short I still don't know how to feel about the series. Will reserve judgement until I finish book 1
The story was included in Taming The Vampire Anthology. Piqued enough to at least try the next book in a series of 9 total books.

Fangs for the Fantasy
This book is an introduction to an entirely new world by Yasmine Galenorn which makes me very very eager

I’ve followed Yasmine Galenorn’s Sister of the Moon/Otherworld series (the name seems to change depending on who you ask) for a long time and I’ve always enjoyed her world setting, her characters and her stories. I haven’t enjoyed the massive massive bloat that besieges the series because there are so many ideas that it’s heard to fit them all in

So a new series entirely? That is promising.

Purchasing a mansion that has seen better days but has a charm that Maddy can't resist, it's just the restart she nee

Maddy has had enough of her old life. Too many rules and too much noise in the Condo she used to share with her abusive exhusband. And the fact he stops over sometimes is a real problem. Also she is tired of having to hide her Cijin cat Bubba. When her best friend Sandy suggests she move to a decrepit mansion in B

A Deliciously Magickal Beginning

This, the first book in the Bewitching Bedlam series, was a very quick read and a nice introduction to the series. I actually read the first full book before reading this novella, but I wanted to get the background after falling in love with the characters. I've been a fan of Yasmine's writing for many years and love that she's started this series. So far, it's a bit tamer than her other books, but I love the comedic edge, the magic, and the fun story line.

I first read this as part of the anthology Taming the Vampire. I loved this story. This author's writing flows so well. It's a very short story but has a lot in it. It's a great introduction to what I hope is a wonderful series. I love the characters and the world building. I'm hoping to find out more about Bubba the cat who is also a Cjinn. And what is being done with the mansion Maddy purchased will make for some interesting future stories. ...more

A fantastic introduction to Yasmine Galenorn's new series, Bewitching Bedlam. Maddie Gallowglass has lost herself and a move closer to her friend Sandy seems like the answer. Maddie moves into an old mansion to renovate it, but things don't go as planned. I'm really looking forward to this series. ...more

Taming the Vampire Anthology

Maddy moves to Bedlam to get away from her still controlling ex. She buys a house and plans to turn it into a bed and breakfast. Of course she didn't know she had a vampire squatter who also happens to be a famous cursed former servant of Apollo.

This was ok. I'm just not into the whole musician thing, I find those scenes incredibly awkward to read.

Quirky and exciting

I love the backstory for the vampire and the hinted common thread. Her discovery of Aegis living in her house was quite hilarious. Service businesses seem to suck around her area. Definitely a great start to a captivating series. I look forward to reading more.

This was such a fun/sexy way to start the series! Since it's a prequel I read it first and I'm already in love with Maddy and Aegis! The forbidden romance and promise of secrets to be discovered draws you in and makes you want to sit down and finish the whole series. ...more

Witch running a b&b? Fat magic orange cat with a cowlick? Hot vampire rock star in black leather?
It's all so very silly and random (especially Greek/Roman pantheon connection), but I think I'm in.
