Bait n' Witch

Published by Entangled: Amara
Book #3 in the Legendary Consultants series
In love with the witch hunter father of her charges...
Rowan McAuliffe has been hiding most of her life. Secretly trained in her powers by an unusual source, she’d been taught not to trust anyone. Especially other witches. However, after she was forced to perform a hateful act against her will, she now hides from the Mage High Council who seek answers, and possibly her life.
Greyson Masters is the Council’s best enforcer – a witch hunter who lays down the law. Despite the danger of his job, Greyson is also raising his triplet daughters. Alone. Budding new witches who display an alarming combined power no one understands. Too bad he hasn’t got a clue how to deal with them.
Little does Greyson realize that the new nanny sent to him by Legendary Consultants is the very witch he is hunting. When the truth is revealed, can these two opposing forces find a way to listen to their hearts? Or will Greyson have to follow orders and kill Rowan – the one woman who has made his soul come alive?

Bait n' Witch by Abigail Owen is the third book in her Legendary Consultants series, a series that follows the cases of Brimstone, Inc ... a supernatural help service is the best way to describe it. In Bait N' Witch, it centers around Rowan, a powerful witch, raised to distrust her peers, and is currently hiding from Mage High Council, after the events of the first book (The Demigod Complex), where she was abducted, and compelled to perform magic to attack others. In fear of her life, she asks Brimstone Inc. for help hiding. Enter Greyson, the Mage High Council's best enforcer (witch-hunter), and a very powerful mage himself, who is tasked to hunt down Rowan and bring her in for questioning. In an ironic twist, he also asks Brimstone Inc for help. Not in the hunt, but in finding a nanny for his twelve-year-old triplet daughters, who run nannies off frequently. The solution: Hide Rowan in plain sight, as the newly hired nanny to Greyson's daughters.
This isn't the first book I have reviewed of Abigail Owen's. (See here for my review on Shift Out of Luck). I wasn't the hugest fan of it, but it didn't push me away from requesting another book of her's. Abigail Owen's is a good writer, so I wanted to give her books another chance. I'm glad I did. The story was cute and fun, and original. It's a quick read (I had it done in less than a day), but it didn't need to be longer. It's quick and to the point, with just enough to push the story along, as well as make the attraction between our two narrators believable, as well as the bond Rowan builds with the girls.
The characters are well-written, with thorough backgrounds, and different personalities. Rowan might be in fear of her life, and her free-will, but she is strong, and protective of those she loves. She might be in hiding, and not a professional nanny, but she takes her charge seriously. Greyson is your typical alpha-male. Lost when it comes to rai
