My name is Ace Bisset, and after a lifetime of proving magic doesn’t exist, I’m learning how to be a witch.

If you’d told me a few months ago that I’d be burning sage and staking vampires, I would have laughed in your face. And yet here I am, casting spells and brewing potions while I relentlessly search for a way to lift the curse that binds my four lovers to the night.

Note: I received an advanced review copy in exchange for my honest review.

This is the 3rd book, so let it be known it's best if you've read the previous two book as without having done that, not everything will make sense and honestly? The book won't be as good.
Having said that...
The book was really good. I enjoyed it more, probably cause we get to dive in deeper into well everything. Relationships, history/past, abilities..everything.
Now usually that's expected from a book in a series, but it w

Hidden by Night: a Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy (Her Dark Protectors Book 3) Kindle Edition
by Jada Storm  (Author), Emma Stark  (Author)
I borrowed this book via the Kindle Unlimited program and am choosing to leave a fair and honest review.
“Being a crime-fighting witch who also upholds the law is a lot harder to do than to TV shows make it seem.”

Ace's life is only getting more complicated as she recovers from her recent brush with a witch who wanted her dead. Somehow, she manages to open a rift i

A continuation of a series, that MUST be read in order.
First, I'll say the characters are very well fleshed out. Example: We pick up from book 2 right after Ace does something selfish and reckless, knowing it could put others in harm. This part was frustrating to me. HOWEVER, that's a sign of great writing because the character is perfectly-imperfect. She's not perfect. Ace is head-strong and wants answers no matter what it takes.
Second, the dialogue is witty, with lol parts, and just seems very

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from the author*

It's about a 3.5 for me. I liked it. It started right where we left off in the last installment and set an eerily touching vibe that continued with the rest of the chapters. This installment focused more on the consequences of dealing with magic you don't understand and tying up some loose ends from the second installment. Ace is forced to take vacation, which means she finally gets some down time. But what does a workaholic d

Great book, and amazing continuation of the series. If you have already read the first two books, you should definitely not hesitate to pick up this one. If you haven't, then I recommend starting them now. I really like this series and would definitely recommend it to people who never tried out this author's books as well as to people who are fans of this genre or already have some experience with the author's previous books.
The story itself is very exciting, deeply pulling the reader in, delic

I have such mixed feelings about this book. I read all the Sunaya books written by Jasmine Walt and couldn't wait for each book to be published. Having said that, I personally don't care for reverse harem books so didn't think about reading this series. I was given the chance to read this book for an honest review and accepted because this is a terrific author and I have no problem being honest. While still not fond of reverse harem books, I can only say "wow". What a story. Now I have to go

Excitement galore!

This third installment of Ace and her gargoyle protectors has been a wild ride. A lot of stuff happens and gets resolved quickly with the help of her men and her friend Gemma who was basically kidnapped by her bat crazy aunt and uncle. Ace is able to rescue her and gets her closest thing to a friend back in one piece. Then there is the vengeful ghost in the pink dress who came through a rift that Ace accidentally opened trying to contact her dead mother. So much going on and mo

This series never fails to be full of action, steam, and mystery. Ace seems to finally and fully accept who and what she is, though she still has a lot of questions and is struggling to make her life as a witch and her life as a detective mesh. In this installment Ace is more focused on learning magic and dealing with the resurfacing of her pain at the loss of her parents, particularly her mom. Despite this, and all her near death experiences, she seems to be much happier and is starting to come ...more

I have loved all of these books so far and love them. They must be read in order so if this is a new book for you then go back to the beginning of the series first. The first half of this book was fantastic but I felt it fizzled out a bit in the end and also the sex scenes become a little Monotonous with very little deviation its almost the same old, same old each time. Perhaps I am being overcritical but for a RH romance I fee that the author needs to be able to be very creative when it isn't a ...more

I really enjoyed this book. If I ever needed a detective, I would choose Ace. I love her determination, intelligence, curiosity, cunning, protectiveness, and her laser focus on her cases. I couldn't put this book down and read it straight through! Will she find a way to apply her magic skills to solve her supernatural case? I love how she relates to her protective gargoyles and how they are willing to help, any way they can. This book is action-packed with danger, magic, ghosts, witches, gargoy ...more

In this third instalment of the series Ace and her guys develop further into their personalities and skills as she gets used to what she can do and the supernatural world around her. We also learnt more about the history behind them all as well as hints of what might happen in the next book in the series. Sometimes a third book in a series can be a bit tired as the main events might have already happened but in this book there was still plenty happening that moved the story on while staying true ...more

Oh wow, what a great third book in the series. Hidden by Night picks right back up where book number two, Kissed by Night finished. I love the way that Ace's relationship with not only the guys is developing but also with Gemma and perhaps Jared too. I really liked Gemma in the second book, and even though she messed up I thought she was a friend that Ace needed. We're slowly starting to learn a bit more about Ace's past, but most importantly we're discovering more about her families. This book ...more

Another exciting chapter in the life of Ace and her men. This one in my opinion is the best one of the three. We are really starting to get into her story , discovering and enjoying the journey right along with her, and the action is tightly packed into this third installment. Ace is growing as a witch and a woman, entwined with her sexy men and exploring their relationships, getting comfortable with herself and them, as a group and more separately. I am really excited to discover where their st ...more

This book started off slow but by the end I was loving it just as much as the first two books in the series. The mystery was enjoyable and I loved that Ace was willing to take Jared under her wing. The relationship between Ace and her men also grew to deeper states during the book as well. Reverse Harem isn't always my favorite but this series is the best Reverse Harem I have read. I like that the mystery and sex are interweaved and so balanced. I am really enjoying this series and can't wait fo ...more

I really enjoyed this book, however, some of the scenes in it were a bit too spooky for me. I don't really like reading about ghosts and hauntings and spirits getting up to mischief (i guess i'm hypersensitive). I kept reading though as the rest of the story line was great. I loved how the characters evolved and i loved finding out more back story. I love how the book progressed and i love how Ace's harem is evolving. The book was written very well. I'm looking forward to the next book in the se ...more

Here we are at the third book, and the series is still going strong. One thing I like to see in a series at this point is character growth, progression of the plot, and new information that doesn’t seem tacked on. The authors deliver these things very well. I was pleasantly surprised at the addition of a sort-of character, but I don’t want to give too much away. And, I liked how we went back to another character who I really liked. As a side note, I hate how some RHs become all about the men, an ...more

Ace summoned her dead mother, who she had not seen in years.. Hugging her, Ace recognized the small patch of freckles on her mom's neck. Ace began to remember things from the night her parents were murdered, Hasan comes into the library and her mother disappears. A little later, Thomas comes in to report that a rift, an opening between worlds, is in the back yard. Ace discovers a fiendish spirit escaped through the rift. What is the spirit up to? What does Ace do about the spirit? A must read to ...more

I received Hidden By Night, book 3 of the Her Dark Protectors series, from the author/publisher (via BookFunnel). The gifting did not determine the review/rating, which reflects my honest opinion. I love this series and the characters--gargoyles rock (pun intended). This book was fast-paced with non stop action and a fun (and often flirty) storyline. Another great addition to the Her Dark Protectors series. The only thing I would have enjoyed more, was more focus on a few of the sub-plots, like ...more

I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest
The characters + storytelling were very captivating
This is the 3rd book in the series
Ace is never believed magic exist.
Now that she found out she is a witch, she has to learn how to use her newfound powers.
Let's not forget the 4 hotties living with her.
It has all the ingredients that you need for an awesome book!

Gargoyles and a detective

Absolutely amazing! I love this series. Gargoyles and a detective. Ace opens a portal and ghosts get through, her mom included. I loved how Ace and the guys relationships advance and they also try to be “normal” as much as four gargoyles can be using magic to hide their wings. I love stories with detectives and crime scenes. This author did a great job blending both paranormal and realistic cop procedures. Can’t wait for the book!!!

A good story in what is shaping up to be a fantastic series. I like finding out about all the characters, and getting to know them better. The dynamic between the main characters is decent. My only criticism is that I felt that some of the sex scenes were added only for the sake of it — though, not all! — I don’t know. What I like the most about this series is the detective/police procedural seamlessly mixed in with the supernatural.

Excellent 3rd book!

I love this series! Its so well done.
I wasn't on board with bringing Gemma home though.
I felt she wasn't trustworthy, and a tough cop wouldn't risk her loved ones on a liar, and backstabbing would-be friend!
Apart from that I loved this book! Can't wait for more!

Great addition to this series.

This is book 3 in Ace and her 4 men's story. It is just as good as first two. She's still trying to figure out how to break the curse, what happened to her parents and some new things that happened. I can not wait for the next one and excited to read what comes next.

I wanted to give this a 5 but two things stepped it down. The neighbor was Richard through two books. In this one he was Robert and toward the end of the book he was Roger. Jared's Dad was Richard. Fix it. The second was that there has been a lot of wasted "togetherness" in this book and a real emphasis on Jac. You can't play favorites in these. All equal and all together.

This book had me biting my nails the entire time I was reading it. Every time I thought I knew where the story was headed I was thrown a curve ball at every turn. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. I really am enjoying the journey Ace is having learning to accept her new role in this world and embracing her powers more and more as the story progresses.

Third in the series is as good as the first!

I love these books! Ace kicks butt as a detective and witch, and she does it with the support of her men. Adding Gemma, Jared, and ghosts just keeps the story alive. Cannot wait for book 4, and hopefully some answers about what really happened to Ace's parents.

This is the third installment to this series and its still going strong. This series hit the ground running and shows no signs of slowing down. Each book is better then last. The story like Ace and her men is changing, growing and has a complexity and fluidity that's easy to follow and one you don't want to miss.

The third book in the series continues the story of Ace and you should read all of them in order. The book has character growth and a strong story. The cliffhanger will leave you wanting the forth book asap. Ace is growing as a person along with her Gargoyle friends and the adventure make this book an enjoyable read highly recommended.
