I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, I just knew it would be fun. This was so true, I mean she turns 40 and then meets a shifter, a vampire, a Goddess , an alien and the Fae and gets magical powers. who wouldn't want that?? I would definitely keep the shifter for myself lol. Through the whole book, little moments that happen in life came up and I'm thinking this is so true! The author hit the nail on the head. The only thing that took away from me giving 5 stars was that it was written i ...more

Birthday Witch was definitely a fun and different read. This book really is unlike any book I have read and was full of twists and turns.

I really enjoyed all of the characters in this book and would love to read another story involving this group. I was actually sad to get to the end because I wanted more. There were a few places I had to go back and reread to make sure I understood what was going on but otherwise the writing was good.

Well what a enchanting read.
This is a new to me author and I’m very pleased to have found a new name to follow in 2018.
It’s fantastic to have a heroine who’s 40, I love the wit and sarcasm throughout the dialogue, usually from Shay and of course the heat in the form of shifter Luke and vampire Jace, two alphas wanting her.
They Say like begins at 40, certainly a whole new life is about to begin again for Shay but first there’s the small matter of being the chosen queen who’ll need to save this al

Amazing!!

Well that wasn’t what I expected! I’m simply without words to properly define my utter surprise. I’m delighted and I must admit a little lighter in the stress I was carrying, prior to this read. I can’t remember laughing, smiling, giggling and grinning like a fool this way, especially from a book. This wonderful author took me on a hysterical, lovely, charming and super hot ride from cover to cover. Seriously this story has it all. This epic, funnier than hell storyline takes you to fa

A funny, sexy book with a sassy, single mom protagonist who has to grapple with a milestone birthday, a snarky cat, family responsibilities..oh, and she's also the queen of a magical realm in the middle of a civil war.

No biggie.

With a mentor goddess and a handsome-as-a-god trainer, the new queen learns to manage her powers, fulfill her responsibilities, and have some fun along the way.

Fantastic, funny book. A great read.

So it's Shay's 40th birthday and she's expecting a normal day. But instead she hits her head and next thing she knows she has Magical Powers. She learns that she is in fact a Queen in the realm of Erigate and has been chosen to rule she must first lead them into a battle to restore peace in Erigate. So she starts training to use her powers with Luke, and of course the sparks start to fly.
Overall pretty good book. I just wish there were more so we can learn more about the magical races.

Shay learns some pretty big news on her 40th birthday. She learns she must save and rule a magical world. Luke has been by her side a lot longer than she realizes and she just might learn to love a man again. Her daughters seem to adapt to all the changes pretty well and I'm anxious for Princess Witch to be available.

Shay is turning 40 is the last thing she expected was to wake up to powers and to news that not only is she a witch but is Queen to another realm. All she wants is to get a cup of coffee but everything slips from her in weird ways and goes flying across the room. She rushes her two daughters out the door to school so she can figure out what is happening to her. Its not long that she gets two visitors that explain what she is and what's to come.

An amazing read with lots of sassy fun and wonderful PNR elements.

I love discovering a NEW author, I love everything paranormal plus this isn't your ordinary dark and mysterious PNR. It is fun and hot....god grief this sex is smoking and your pages may burst into flames.

She is just looking for a boring day, a normal birthday...but this birthday is about to become so much more than just turning a year older.

This has a smoking hot Alpha, a steaming butthead Vampire, Goddesses, Shifters, Aliens

I love the humor that Billie Dale installs in her stories. They are different with the storylines. Birthday Witch is fabulous. It has twists and turns throughout the story. The support characters are fantastic. I love the banter they have throughout the story. Shay is amazingly strong, but kind and loving. She has this air about her that just makes her so great. Luke is a moody, but protective alpha male. Support characters I have to say that Jace is my favorite. He has this quirky humor that ju ...more

Our heroine discovers she is the magical queen of a foreign realm on her fortieth birthday. Not so over the hill, eh?

I picked this book up because it looked like fun and I was not disappointed. The author has a very dry sense of humor and the book shows that throughout. The characters are fun, sarcastic and more than a little confused by all that is happening. The story is a bit unusual in that our heroine doesn't spend much time in her new realm, but unusual is good. Perhaps we will see more of

I loved this story and I loved Shayden she’s such a funny character, it’s nearing her 40th birthday when she is told by these paranormal’s that she is a queen and a witch and she is needed to save the world when all she wants is a cup of coffee. Shayden’s life consists of being a single mum and a cat that hates her who is now able to talk to her and now being told it’s up her to save a world she didn’t even know about what else could happen?.

I received this book from the author through LoP in exchange for an honest review.

Shayden is having one hell of a 40th birthday. She hits her head, suddenly has magic powers, her cup of coffee is running away from her, and her crabby cat is talking to her. On top of that, she opens a door that reveals a shape shifter guardian and a goddess who say she's the queen of another world selected because of her power and wisdom that comes with her age. Poor Shay doesn't know what to do with this revelat

A birthday to remember

A really good read. Okay for those of you that don't like sex in your books, just skip those parts the rest makes a great read. The characters are vibrant and full of vim with an underlying humour that runs through their dialogue. There are a couple of proofing errors but these are minor.
Hitting 40 shouldn't have been a big deal. Heck she's been preparing for it! However when her coffee kept getting away from her and then strange people appear in her kitchen she is gobsmac

Birthday Witch was definitely a fun and different read. This book really is unlike any book I have read and was full of twists and turns.

Shayden is turning 40 and starting a new journey now that she is newly divorced. What she didn't expect was to be thrown into a magical world in desperate need of her help. Finding out she has true magical powers is just the tip of the iceberg compared to everything else she is facing.

I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I love Shayden for she is witty and fun character. Her being a mother and having to go on this adventure. She meets a lot of cool characters. I would like to read the other books in this series. This author did an amazing job put this together. I kind of got urban fantasy vibes and the way the gods give her abilities to save the day. I don't want to give away to much.

I liked the story. A strong middle-aged female character with a little Wiccan knowledge tossed in. The story also has a lot of pop culture related humour which was amusing. This book is steamy and has more gratuitous sexually explicit scenes in it that weren't really necessary to the story, which was distracting from the story itself. Otherwise, it is an entertaining read.

A fun balance of laughs and adventure

Having never read author Billie Dale I had no clue she'd take my hand not let go, I been her hostage and continue to be so as her series goes on to our main characters daughter and her own journey.

Shay wakes up on her birthday with the idea of blogging, getting her girls off to school and coffee but not in that order. When she goes to get her coffee the mug shoots across the room and shatters and then kosmo the cat decides to speak or should I say demand certain things and then tells her more is to come and since she is wiccan she tends to believe him even though she can't get over that he speaks and as she sends her daughters off to school she gets a text that says wave your hand in the ...more

Having never read author Billie Dale I had no clue she'd take my hand not let go, I been her hostage and continue to be so as her series goes on to our main characters daughter and her own journey. I found Shay to be loud and immature in the best ways making her a fun character to read. I liked the references to television shows I've watched in the past, you can see where the author found inspiration there. My only reason for loosing the star was the inner monologue seemed enless on some chapter ...more

For me the beginning of this book was a little slow. It was typical exposition and I'm just impatient. Once things really started happening I found I was beginning to enjoy it more. Then the triangle happened; I hate them. This was especially true for this book, because one of the interests was not great; He was selfish. I also wish there was a bit more battle. It seemed like the heroine was just so powerful that the fighting was over too quickly. Overall I liked this book. I'm not sure if I'll ...more

The story had an odd flow, some places moved well, others dragged. The plot had quite a few wrinkles that didn’t really work for the story. All the characters had this weird thing going on, I would like them one moment, then the next I didn’t, flipping back & forth thru the story. The snarky humor was funny at first, but before I even reached the half way point, just got old. The bad editing/proof reading didn’t do the author any favors either. That stumbling thru the goofs was nearly enough ...more

no male crisis with a car or bike and a chippie .

nope. cataclysmic war between territories in a place she has never heard of - and her power on the fritz so she cannot hold a coffee cup!

perhaps menopausal agita and deprivation mojo can save the day?

a wild adventure for this middle age mom!

For most women their 40th birthday is one they would like to ignore or even forget. Shayden's is one she'll never forget as a new reality waits for her. Once again Ms. Dale managed to keep my attention focused on the story until the very end( much to the annoyance of my cat).
