Love can be magical. And deadly.

After my grand-mère was murdered, I returned to Bayou Noir to find the killer. And I have just one suspect, Xavier Richelieu. But I forgot just how superstitious the folks in my old hometown can be. A voodoo priestess, a supposed vampire, and a grumpy gator are on the loose. I don’t believe in this crazy supernatural stuff, but I am

This probably would have gotten an extra star if it hadn't been for the ad nauseum mentions of how much of a whore Saint was. I get it; he is the town bicycle. I got it the first dozen times it was brought up. I didn't need to be hit over the head with it over and over again through the ENTIRE damn book! And of course, Chloe had basically no sexual experience and never had an orgasm...sigh. When will authors stop writing this cliché trope (the uber whore and the innocent)?


However, those issue

Thank you Cynthia - this was one hell of a ride!!

Voodoo and superstitions, a witch and a vampire, a Demon MC called Saint and, I kid you not folks, a very grumpy gator!
Top it all off with a nice murder mystery and there you go: a fast-paced, funny and intriguing read that is bound to have you hooked from the very first pages.

Chloe was back in her small Louisiana hometown near New Orleans after her grandmother had been murdered. She was determined to find the murderer.

Saint was Chloe’s high school crush. He was a biker and all women were interchangeable to him. However, after seeing the adult Chloe, he had to have he

Chloe takes a job a local bar run by Cajun Demons MC. She runs straight into her childhood crush, Saint. At first, he doesn't recognize her but once he does, he promises to keep his hands to himself. It is proving to be difficult as both Chloe and Saint share an intense chemistry.

Instant intrigue, this was an awesome Read. With all the mystical magical intrigues that surround New Orleans this story that occurs on its outskirts is bayou perfect! With touches that scream Cajun and Voodoo right alongside of the Cajun Demons MC, you have a recipe for not only hot Bikers, but the Magic of the Bayous. Add in the Murder of her Grandmére Camille Valois, and you definitely have a mystery on your hands. Coming home and facing the loss of Mamie is one thing, but throw in Saint a Ba ...more

I found the plot interesting and wish it just got more in depth. It seemed very rushed and I really didn’t feel the pull between Saint and Chloe. There should have been a prologue or a flash back about them. I think it just needed more. It want a bad read but not a great read either. I craved more info especially at the end. Why did Chloe go to law school? We had no background to figure out her choice and Saint from man whore gotta have it every night to a stand up guy...hummmmmm. Agai

I was glad to read your book because I never read paranormal books and yours took me out of my comfort zone and opened my eyes to a new genre of books. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Under Your Spell, it makes me want to go to Louisiana and research it's history first hand. I'm on the fence on whether our spirits stay behind or move on once the body expires. You put an interesting spin on it. This was an interesting genre to read and I recommend your book as a good read 👍

ARC from the author for honest review...

First, I'll tell you that I've been to New Orleans a few times and absolutely loved visiting. I've read a lot of Anne Rice too.
Well, this is no Anne Rice, hardly even a little. That's fine because this book's story is more of a gumbo of Voodoo and a MC group attached to the swamps near New Orleans. It can be gritty but still it is MC light and paranormal light. Very entertaining. It gets a star off because it's a bit goofy on how Chloe bumbles into bad sit
I'd rate this book 3.5 stars. It showed a lot of promise but had a few problems for me that made me take a couple of stars off. The book was an easy, light read and I finished it in a day. The story's set near New Orleans in a small town that still holds fast to superstition and voodoo beliefs. There's a bit of witchcraft, a potential vampire and voodoo, so of course some of the story line is going to be over the top as it dabbled in the paranormal. I thought the MC side of things might conflict ...more
I liked parts of this one, but at the same time, it was missing something to really make it a solid 3 or 4 star read. So, for me, between 2 and 3 stars, but rounded up to 3.

I never felt the chemistry between Saint (H) and Chloe (h), which was the biggest problem I had. I didn't like that they were such stereotypical opposites, too. You have the super-slut (not just Saint but Maya too) and the naïve almost-virgin. Kinda old. Not that I didn't understand Chloe's reluctance for relationships, give

MC + Paranormal + Voodoo/witchcraft = Perfect Trio! From Ms. Nettie who might as well be named Louisiana's “Ms. Creole” (if there is such a thing) to the Kraken meeting you at your front steps; you are taken into the bayou while reading Under Your Spell by Cynthia Rayne.

Under Your Spell put a hex on me!

I’ve read the Four Horsemen MC and Lone Star Mobster series by Cynthia Rayne and I love when she spices things up by setting a story in Louisiana. The story lines of her books are generally somewhere in the Deep South (Texas, Louisiana) and I can really relate to the accents and atmosphere she describes. HOWEVER, when she sets a story in/around NOLA, I am automatically sucked in by the vortex that is Cynthia Rayne. The spiciness of the Cajun/French accent, the b

I really enjoyed Under Your Spell. This story takes place in the outskirts of New Orleans which already is interesting add to it an MC and a somewhat paranormal world and it is fascinating. There are mystical characters mentioned in the book but the story is not set in a paranormal fantasy realm, it's a modern-day human world. The town folks practice witchcraft, think Vampires exists and live in a Voodoo culture. Between the bikers, the creole lingo, and Beignets, I couldn't he

Voodoo, Witches, Vampires and MC makes a fun read!

Cynthia Rayne has written another good book. I loved the Four Horsemen MC Series written by Cynthia and I wanted to check this book out, well it doesn't disappoint. Under Your Spell: Cajun Demons MC, is an action packed, fast-paced, MC romance with a bit of paranormal thrown in. It's a steamy story with hot bikers, explicit language, burning up the sheets sex scenes and a happy ending. We'll meet Chloe Valois and Saint aka Michael St. James, as

A new to me author, Cynthia Rayne delivers the goods with this steamy yet very touching tale of a hardened biker and the girl who came back home. Saint and Chloe aren't strangers but one look at the gorgeous man and her childhood crush comes flooding back while he doesn't seem to remember her. That all changes and Rayne takes us on a ride filled with mystery, a bit of old-fashioned Louisiana 'voodoo' and some undeniable heat.

Under Your Spell was a good start to the Cajun Demons MC series. It’s a paranormal romance that has a little bit of voodoo, vampire, witches and the Cajun chapter of the Demon MC. Cynthia did a great job building the little town of Bayou Noir with some interesting townspeople. I can really see the potential of some promising stories to come with the folks.

The murder plot was filled with suspense that was entertaining. However, I find that the romance between Cholé and Saint lacking

Under Your Spell literally had me under it's spell!

This was the first book by Cynthia Rayne that I have read so I had no expectations going in. I usually don't read paranormal type books on the regular but there was something about the story's description that grabbed my attention.

If you like The Originals, the spin off of The Vampire Diaries, or MC stories, you just might find that this book is for you. Set in the Bayou, it has the old world magic and mystery on every page.

Overall: 4 / 5

Under Your Spell is the first book in the Cajun Demons MC series from author Cynthia Rayne. This is a standalone romance, and it’s a cross between a paranormal and an MC romance. I would say that the plot had more of a paranormal feel rather than an MC one, which was fitting as the story was set in New Orleans.

Under Your Spell is the first book in the Cajun Demons MC series. Chloe has had a crush on Saint for as long as she can remember. She returns to her hometown after her grandmother is murdered and ends up working at a diner to make ends meet. She bumps in to Saint, but he doesn't recognize her. She knows Saint doesn't do relationships, so she faces the quandary of telling him who she really is or if she wants to take a chance on a one night stand with him none the wiser to her identity.

Set in the bayous of Louisiana this book was interesting, Chloe returns home because her grandmother is killed of an awful death, the town believes in witchcraft, vampires, and potions. Chloe however does not believe in any of this, the book is good, however there was to many french words and phrases I did not understand. There should have been a glossary or something that could have told me what the meanings were. Now lets get to Chloe love interest Saint, he is a biker but honestly it all seem ...more

Yes to Under Your Spell

I loved this story. The author surrounded the characters and storyline in mystery. I have so many questions that need answers. Chloe is sweet, innocent but she has a wild side underneath. Saint is sexy and lethal to all woman. He is a manwhore and is proud of his reputation until he sees Chloe...lets say he will question his life choices.
The author could go in some many directions with this storyline...I hope it continues because I have questions that need answers. I love

What a great second chance story.

Saint and Chloe have known each other for years. Chloe left town only to return after her grandmother was killed and she inherited her house. Chloe is on a mission to find out what happened and hold that person responsible.

Saint is part of a motorcycle club who only has one use for a woman until Chloe comes back into his life. He sees her determination and decides to appoint himself as her protector to make sure she isn't killed in the process.
