In Inborn Magic: Hidden Coven Series book 1 by Kim McDougall, Bobbi Coles first attempt at casting a spell results in her being paralyzed, helpless. Apparently, the only people who can help her is mysterious sexy Quinn and a coven of witches hidden from the world in a secret coven.
Quinn is a stern mysterious man with experience in magic. He doesnt trust easily and ever since meeting the novice Bobbi, he worked hard to guard his heart and his knowledge of magic from her. But when a demon

I love it when I find all the ingredients of a great read: compelling plot, believable and likeable characters, tight, active writing, humour and tension. Inborn Magic is a fantasy set in our world, but one that resonates with real magic. Bobbi is a feisty heroine thrust into a coven of witches and desperately trying not to become too involved with Quinn, a hero who has his own special magic. It's a toe-tingling adventure, quick to read, but I found myself wondering what will happen in Book 2!

Nice quick read.

I can't wait to get the next book. Just what I needed to break the self-isolation monotony. I am excited to see the characters develop.

I enjoyed reading this book. The author proves she is not intimidated by the shortness of the novella. She does a great job developing her story and creating fully rounded characters. I look forward to the next book in this series.

I would not have typically chosen this genre. I enjoyed this book. It was fun, fast paced the characters are engaging and leave me wanting to know them more. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

I really enjoyed Kim McDougall's new book Inborn Magic. It is a very solid read with a lovely sense of humour. If you like magic and witches, you'll love this book.

Not the type of book I usually gravitate towards but I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised and how it took me in. I could not put it down till I finished the story! Can't wait for the next!

Bobbi was a young, amateur witch. She practices and practices, but doesnt seem to be getting any better. During a spell, something goes wrong and she loses a great deal of magic. It was a stranger that had to unlock her. In an effort to ditch her saviors, Bobbi somehow lands in some kind of time portal. Im not really sure what happened here, but she seems lost and disoriented.

This sounded like an interesting story about witches and secret covens, but I sort of found it hard to follow. Like

Great story

Great story reads well with good fluidity. Shame it seemed too short. I liked the premise and characters, so of course I recommend it.

Part 1

This is lacking substance and depth. Really short. A weird mix of too much plot and no character development plus no clear narrative arc.

I absolutely loved this book! I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series of books.
(FYI I tend to only review one book per series, unless I completely change my mind on a series, so want to change my scoring down a lot)

How I rate Stars: 5* = I loved (must read all I can find by the author)
4* = I really enjoyed (got to read all the series and try other books by the author).
3* = I enjoyed (I will continue to read the series)
3* = Good book just not my thing (I realised I don't like the genre or picked up a kids book to review in error.)

All of the above scores means I would
