The lore and setting of New Orleans adds to the story’s impact.

I loved this story--I think that the author really brought New Orleans to life. Jared was a hottie, and Kendra his perfect match--her friends were a great addition to the over-all magic!

Two elements I love in the paranormal genre are witches and ghosts. I lucked out with both in His Magic Touch plus it is set in New Orleans! I craved beignets the entire time I was reading.

Jared Dupre is one fine man. He’s helps run the family hotel, he’s got a beautiful fiancé, and he’s a witch. On his road to the altar, he hits a major complication. His brother has been abducted by a witch bent on settling a centuries old vendetta. While Jared is off chasing his brother, his fiancé, Kendra, is

I was given a pdf. of this book to judge for a contest through NERFA. I was really the wrong person to read this book. I'm Wiccan. I've been a practicing witch for 40 years. I know how real witchcraft works. Imagine a paranormal romance written about Catholic priests who use their position, power, and sacramental wine to seduce women in the church to have sex with them. Imagine nuns that prey on the people of their church extorting them for money and turning them into slaves. You don't like that ...more

I felt there was good balance between the two lead characters point of view with just enough of the villain's to keep things going. The New Orleans setting really came alive but I think that a little more attention could have been given to the Black Island settings. The characters were all really great. I felt they were well-developed and had excellent dialogue. There were a couple of sections I felt a little rushed as well as a few places I felt were drawn out unnecessarily. To be honest, I fel ...more

Entertaining, suspenseful, and charmingly witty! The witches with all of their wizardry battles, high jinxes, and romantic upheavals keep the pace of the book moving. I grew to love the characters and look forward to future books because I know the author would NEVER leave such wonderful characters behind to mold in the NOLA bayou.

First let me state, I received an Advance Reader Copy, (ARC), but this in no way influences my review. I always leave an honest review
Excellent story. I'm not much into witches, but because of this read, I know I'll be reading more. Kendra & Jared went through a lot of turmoil because of a curse made by an evil witch. This has so much going on with it. Ghosts, witches (good & bad), a curse, black magic, and even some history thrown in. I recommend this read 5 Thumbs up

His Magic Touch is a fast-paced story packed with magic and mayhem, deceit and vengeance, and a lost love that tears a heart in two. This story is nothing short of captivating; great characters (good and bad), a fabulous storyline and well-developed world building, all combine to make this a gripping tale and one that will consume you till the very end. I hope others enjoy this book as much as I did.

He fights his foe and returns to New Orleans, thinking his beloved is safe from harm. Instead, she has fallen under the spell of his arch rival and is in more d ...more

I liked a lot of things about this story. The hero, Jerod, was a great character, with a lot of depth. He was smart, handsome and had a great background heritage, to say nothing of the fact that he could wield magic the way other men might wield a sword (he did wield a sword at some points in the book!) I liked the heroine, Kendra, but not as much. Though she, like Jerod, was a modern-day witch, I felt her character got a bit lost because she was so frequently in the company of her two witchy be ...more

I was looking for something different to read and His Magic Touch was just the right book to choose. A fun paranormal romance with lots of magic. The author weaves a compelling story line with revenge as its focus. A great cast of characters, alive and dead. Angelique was a spotlight in every scene she appeared in. The author scripted the perfect villain. I disliked him immediately and waited for his demise. While I enjoyed the main two characters, there were a few times I felt Jared was a bit s ...more

This is my 1st read and review for this author and this is an amazing story. I liked the characters Jared and Kendra but maybe more Jared I loved the cemetery scenes with the ghost of their ancestors playing their parts. I’ve always wanted to go to New Orleans and see the cemetery’s and Debby Grahl has made it all seem very realistic and it makes me want to go even more now. After reading this story I will be looking out for more from this author it’s a magical read and I even liked the main vil ...more

If you enjoy reading exciting, thrill-packed paranormal romances with sexy witches who possess intriguing magical powers, ghosts, diabolical villains, and plenty of steamy romance, His Magic Touch by Debby Grahl, is the book for you. From the very first page, I was captivated. With her vivid imagery, colorful descriptions of New Orleans, and a cast of believable and unique characters, the author drew me into the heart of the story.

His Magic Touch is a really good read mixing white and black magic, witches and ghosts, into the spicy flavor of a New Orleans gumbo. Jared Dupre abandons his love, Kendra, on the eve of their wedding under threat of her death and chases an unknown enemy to rescue his brother. Besides these two magical characters, the secondary characters are colorful and memorable. Perhaps they’ll show up in future books. But, this story will keep you reading to find out what the Dupre family secret is that has ...more

I've received a ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I was trying really REALLY hard to like this but Kendra, Loren and Deanne insecure and childish behavior was such a turn off. I was already done and over it by chapter 10 and that wasn't even 1/3 through the book. Poor Jared, him deciding he loves and cares for Kendra too much to let her go is a death sentence. The concept and storyline was great but if we had a more likable heroine, I probably would've made it to the end. I gue

Magical and Romantic Read

Jared and Kendra are star crossed lovers who have incredible obstacles to maneuver before they can find their happily ever after. This book was the perfect amount of romance and dark magic, with wonderfully created characters and a tense plot. It held my interest until the very end. I love witch stories and this is a new favorite, thanks to Ms. Grahl's writing and vivid imagination.
