Protecting His Witch by Zoe Forward - #BLOGTOUR #REVIEW @ZoeForward1 #GIVEAWAY

 Title: Protecting His Witch
Series: Keeper of the Veil
Author: Zoe Forward
Release Date: October 27, 2014

A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...
The last thing he wanted was to fall for a witch...

Veterinarian Kat Ramsey hasn't a clue that she's a witch. Sure, she can read minds, and there's the whole "dimension-hopping" issue that she can't quite control, but Kat is determined to keep things normal. That is, until she accidentally hops into the Otherworld, and runs smack into Matthew Ryan―the seriously hot one-night stand from years ago who shoved her out of his dorm. Naked.

And there's the tiny matter of the curse she gave him.

May you never find satisfaction with another woman
. Billionaire and former druid Matthew Ryan hasn't forgotten the curse, or the witch who gave it to him. Kat's unexpected return means the curse will finally be broken. Unfortunately, his libido has other ideas―like how to get her back into his bed one last time. But far more worrying is his suspicion that Kat is the seventh Pleiades witch. Because while he's turned his back on his druidic ways, he's still bound to protect the woman who made his life hell...

 This is the first book I've ever read by Zoe Forward.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but I liked the blurb and when offered a review copy I said yes.  I am SO, SO HAPPY that I did.  I LOVED Protecting His Witch.  
I like paranormal books, but I sometimes feel like some things are overdone.  There are too many vampires out there and too many shifters (I don't want to offend anyone - it's just my opinion).  However we don't have enough books about witches.  Everyone read the Harry Potter books years ago, but there aren't too many authors that write romance novels about witches.  Zoe Forward did just that.  
Both Kat and Matthew are "witches."  He's a druid and she's a Pleiades witch.  While Matthew knows who and what he is Kat does not.  She knows that she's different, but doesn't know why strange things happen to her and why she seems to hop from one world to the next.  
Kat is slightly insecure and a bit prudish.  She's happiest around her animals and tends to avoid relationships.   She's best friends with a gay man.  Matthew is the definition of an arrogant playboy.   While he doesn't intend to hurt anyone he does hurt Kat when she realizes soon after their first fling, that he has a girlfriend.  Matthew is good looking and knows how to use it to his advantage with women.  
Things get steamy the first time Kat and Matthew meet.  She rocks his world and then curses him.  They don't meet again for several years, but the passion is still there the moment they see each other.  
 I loved the world of the Druids and Pleiades that Zoe Forward created.  Matthew had denied this world and Kat had never known about it, but both were pulled in and forced to become a part of it (that's as much as I can say about it without giving away details and spoilers).  
 There are seven Pleiades witches.  I'm hoping that Zoe Forward writes all 7 books because I can't wait to read more about them and their men.  
 I give Protecting His Witch 4.25 stars!  Check it out now!  You won't be disappointed!
Zoe Forward is a hopeless romantic who can't decide between paranormal and urban fantasy romance. So she writes both. In addition to being a mom to one rambunctious kindergartener and wife to a conservation ecologist who plans to save all the big cats on the planet, she’s a small animal veterinarian caring for all the small furries, although there is the occasional hermit crab.

When she’s not typing at her laptop, she’s tying on a karate belt for her son or cleaning up the newest pet mess from the menagerie that occupies her house. She’s madly in love with her globe trotting husband of ten years and happiest when he returns to their home base in North Carolina.
