Michelle Scott, urban fantasy author

I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance! Although I'm not too keen on books that are overly sexy, I don't mind a little heat if it goes along with the story. At the same time, I'll read pretty much anything from classic novels to contemporary fiction.

Under Witch Aura - Maria E. Schneider When Adriel, a witch whose magic is grounded in earth power, crosses paths with the ghost of a murdered woman, she turns to the uber-hot warlock, White Feather, to help put the spirit to rest. What she doesn't count on is that White Feather is being haunted by his own peculiar demon.

One of the things I admire about this author is that she writes urban fantasy that is different from the ho-hum world of vamps and weres. To be sure, there is plenty of magic, but the fantasy element is unique from most other stories I've read. Also, this book contains a mix of Native American and Hispanic characters, traditions, and mythology. And the setting - Santa Fe, NM - is wonderfully described (be prepared to crave Mexican food!)

The characters are interesting and unique without being over-the-top crazy. This actually became a problem for me when I wanted to read more about a particular woman in the book (I won't go into detail to avoid spoilers).

"Under Witch Aura" is an eerie mystery with a great deal of suspense and an oh-so-sweet romance.
