Willow McCray is a witch running away from her past. Alex Denopoulos is an agent with the Magickal Bureau of Investigations. He joins forces with Willow to catch evil men. The two are complete opposites. Willow doesn't always follow the rules and Alex likes to play everything by the book. I really enjoyed watching the two of them try to work together while also fighting their attraction to each other. The chemistry was off the charts! This book is filled with action, snark and sexual tension.. t ...more

This is a paranormal romance that doesn’t pull any punches on the danger and the gore, and it’s got plenty of action, magick and romance. Characters are well developed in this story and Willow is a tough witch with a heart of gold that has strong psychic powers. Alex is a mortal that works for the Magickal Bureau of Investigations and is paired with Willow as his partner when the Bureau gives Willow the option of spending the rest of her life in Hellios (a magickal prison) or becoming a part of ...more

I went into this new-to-me-author’s book with high hopes as I’m always looking for new authors…like I really need to. RME! LOL! Anyway, I was immediately drawn into the story, and I really liked the main character; Willow had lots of spunk and was an interesting character. I did like the plot, and the side characters were fun, as well. At times, I did feel that we were lacking some details that should have been shared sooner, or something that had already been shared could have saved the day if ...more

Although this novel could benefit from more editing, as several errors slipped through the cracks, it was still a very enjoyable read. The characters have strong personalities and show depth and growth. The antagonist is truly evil and although it was at times disturbing to read, his madness really helped showcase Willow's goodness and strength of will. There's also a fair amount of action, as well as a rather steamy romance. I would definitely consider reading more from this author! *Update: I' ...more

Witch Willow McCray is out to discover what happened to her bestie Maeve, which is why she’s at Fusion, a smoky, heavy metal bar, dressed in an overflowing bustier and prowling for men. Her claws are extended to find out what happened to Maeve who’s been with her since their early days in foster care.

Willow thinks she’s got the culprit when super smooth, sex incarnate Alex Denopoulos comes on to

Dirty devil! If you're looking for something jumping into action, keeps you riveted on a razors edge, throws you under the bus only to shake you out, riding into chaos, partnering up with the enemy, fighting evil entities, drawn in with the shenanigans and ditching the mayhem. Congrats my friends, you've jumped off chin deep. Satisfaction rocks this little treasure, bringing it home with such intensity and precision, riding roughshod and imparting one block busting

Fast paced and full of forbidden desire, witch Willow McCray will stop and nothing to find out who killed her best friend. MBI agent Alex Denopoulos isn't fond of witches but he has a job to do and he needs Willow's help to catch a killer. I loved the sparks between these two, and watching their love grow, despite the evil threatening them. An awesome read!! ...more

Willow is a witch who has involved herself in the criminal element of the place known as Raven's Hollow and who is now frantically trying to salvage her chances at any sort of life. Alex is an investigator who is part of the MBI and is on a case to solve a vicious murder...and a man who has a remarkably low opinion of witches and witchcraft. Their paths cross one night, and the only thing salvaging the rockiest of starts to a forthcoming work partnership is the instant chemistry the two find bet ...more

Great read from start to finish. Willow finds herself in a bind when she is arrested looking for her friend, luckily her powers are useful and she is recruited to help on an important case. Alex hates witches but is drawn to Willow in a way no one has ever been able to do before. As they become closer so does a killer. Will they be able to save each other in time?

I received this book as an arc and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I was immediately drawn to Willow. She literally kicks butt and takes names, making no excuses for why she is the way she is, or why she made the decisions she has made. She will fight to the death to protect her friends, even those who have turned their backs on her. And Alex is delicious and damanged, and I absolutely love him for his imperfections and for how much he grows throughout this novel. If you're a fan of urban fantasy romance, this is a must read! ...more

This is the first book of the Raven's Hollow Coven series and it can be read as a standalone. A lot happens in this book no dull moments till the end. The sizzling chemistry between Willow and Alex and the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat til the end. If you're looking for a good PRN romance series with a HEA at the end then Midnight Desire is for you.

Midnight Desire by Shari Nichols is a paranormal romance. This is the first book in the Ravens Hollow Coven Series and each book can be read as a standalone.

This is the first book of Shari's that I have read and it definitely won't be my last. This book pulled me in and I just had to know how it was going to end. I absolutely loved Alex and Willow! I can't wait for the next book in the series Midnight Temptation to be released on June 30, 2020 so I can get Gillian and Garrett's story.

Our heroine is a witch with a past that she is trying to put behind her. Our hero is a detective with some strong preconceptions. Together they just might make an explosive mix.

This is book one of the series.

This is nominally a paranormal romance story, but I found there was a lot more to it than that. The story is well written, easy to read and chock full of action and intrigue that keep the book moving at a fast pace. The background and setting are well developed and provide a nice stage for t

An enjoyable story! I liked the characters, and the overall premise is good. Looking forward to seeing more of Willow (and Alex!) Add in detectives and witches - what could go wrong? I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.

After a very long time, a full length novel that had no prequel, no sequel and had an ending.

Thank God!

Loved it, enjoyed it and finished it within 1 day. The writing style was simple yet effective, though not flowery, it brings across the imagery it needs to. The characters are just like your every day people, beautiful and good looking like most supernatural species but they are just like a normal being.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre: Sci fi and Fantasy. romance
I enjoy books in the fantasy genre and where there's romance too, that's me happy. I enjoyed this book but didn't love it as I'd thought. To be fair, as with other reviewers I'm writing this, reading this in the midst of the Covid19 crisis and my mind isn't where it usually is so that could affect my enjoyment.

I loved the characters, the story flowed well and was a quick, steamy read. What I ha

A witch in deep puts up a biased detective in his place is always a good start for a story! Fiesty willow entertains us with her cunning and slightly violent side while the smooth Alex tries to win us over. This book has deep characters and extremely well written plot with so many layers it keeps your brain engaged and you in your toes waiting for the next curve ball. Multiple story lines truly intrigue you to fall in love or hate with the characters but intertwine them perfectly. If your lookin ...more

I ♥️Love♥️ Willow! Her no nonsense, I can handle myself, bad a$$ery makes it SO easy to like her and connect with her.

The world is well built and diverse, the characters are vivid and jump off the page! This book played out like a movie in my head! Well done @Shari Nichols !

Good story

This was a good story about a witch finding herself and a cop overcoming prejudices. With a dose of forgiveness and second chances.

Look forward to next book
