4 Star Madness  
She’s being accused of committing a crime spree but Gwen Black knows that she didn’t do it! To prove her innocence she must determine how she came to be in this magical place. Struggling to control his shapeshifting abilities, the last thing Theo wants to deal with is a beautiful thief who is persisting that she is innocent even though he has proof.
This paranormal romance is cute, charming and exciting. The characters are strong, magical and easily enthrall readers as they try t

Theo tossed and turned in bed, dreaming the dream he had always dreamed of dragons flying above that he could never join or they would disappear. If he could reach the castle, he knew he would get answers, but as soon as he reached it, he woke up tangled in the sheets. But this time a guard stopped him and led him to Queen Cosima of the Dragons. She told him he bore the mark of the Bravian dragon, orange and yellow dragons that protect and defend their homes and their soulmates. He will mate wit ...more

Touch of Madness brings us back to Magic New Mexico where we encountered sheriff Theo in the book Touch of Darkness. Well now we are getting part of his story.

Without giving spoiler about the book lets just say Theo and Gwen will have a fight on their hands to protect themselves and the town of Magic with only two day to do it in.

The story was very fluid in its writing with nary a hiccup in the story line to keep the interest of the reader. At less than 100 pages the author kept th

This is the worst Magic, New Mexico novella I’ve read. It’s about Gwen, who had an evil witch split her from herself and they had to put her back together or both halves would die. It was not only silly it was so boring I kept falling asleep while I tried to read this. I would have to pass on anything else by M.L. Guida.

In fact, I may have to give up completely on this series. It’s gone from good stories to stories that are short and centered mostly on sex. As I’ve said before, I like sex in a

I am loving Magic, New Mexico and the ties it has to the dragon world. This is not the first time the time spider sends a pirate from the 1700s to Magic. This time, a trouble making witch, Hera, tries to get her way by splitting our pirate in two. Gwen is on the demon's island trying to help her brother and gets sent to modern day Magic, New Mexico. Hera casts a spell to split Gwen into two separate beings. Theo and Gwen must put her back together before both halves fade away. Topper is there wi ...more

I liked this story. This is part of a Kindle World. Apparently, certain authors that write this genre are invited to write a story for this place and time and it is expected to contain certain elements. ML Guida wrote Theo's story. Theo is a dragon shifter sheriff in Magic, New Mexico. It is his time to meet his soulmate. She is an unexpected surprise. Her name is Gwendolyn and she is a pirate from the 17th century. How she gets there and what happened to her during her travel is part of the sto ...more

I thoroughly enjoy the Magic, New Mexico books and am delighted to see dragon shifter Sheriff Theo find his mate in this one. Although you could probably read this as a standalone, it is probably best to read the one just prior to this so you know the various characters. Gwen is thrown here from the 17th century where she was a pirate. Unfortunately things don't go smoothly for her and when she and Theo meet he arrests her. Of course with this being Magic, there will be magic involved - good and ...more

A pirate’s life for me

What a saucy tale of demons, spiders, witches, pirates and dragons. Once again this author has taken us on a time hop to Magic, New Mexico where the people are straight out of a fairytale. This time one of the residents is up to no good on a grander scale than normal. It might take a while for the sheriff to figure it out, but when he does he finds his own HEA. This author is so good at pulling us right into her stories until the very end. I hope the next book is just as e

Theo was a good sheriff of Magic, New Mexico he keeps the peace...even if when he gets mad he turns into his Dragon which can be messy. Gwen is a pirate lady who was fighting with her brother against a demon! Next thing she knows she's falling through a wind tunnel pushed by a very large spider! The storyline is good, got laughs...some kinda sad times..but most of all good characters that keep you interested in the story.

This Dragon is Mine?

Loved the story of how Gwen and Theo got together. It answered questions from other books about Gwen's arrival. I just wish I would have read this book before reading Magic, New Mexico: Touch of Darkness! LOL But I still understood everything and still loved the characters and it even made me laugh with the crazy deputy deciding to be a mummy for the day.

This book is a great short read with fantastic characters, Theo and Gwen at the center of the story. There are steamy scenes with wonderful chemistry that are surrounded by action, adventure and some suspense.

Wowed! The dragons of a Lara cross over to Magic, Mexico in the form of Theo, the town Sheriff. Just like Cé, his mate is a pirate from from the past who came to the future because of the spider. But the pettiness of one witch wrecked havoc in their life, or should I say love life.

This short story was a lot of fun and included a pirate cursed by a witch, an evil twin, and a shapeshifting dragon sheriff. A fun and romantic story great for a quick afternoon read.

Poor Gwen is divided into two, a good half and an evil side. She doesn’t feel it’s her but an imposter. A fairly short interesting read, that I received as an ARC

Vampires, demons and witches! I love to write about these dark entities and the darker the better. My characters are plunged into worlds where they experience torture and mayhem, but even in a world of darkness, true love survives. I write both, sci-fi, contemporary and historical paranormal stories.
