Review: Witch Fire (Elemental Witches #1) by Anya Bast

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
After a chaotic marriage and a rough divorce, all Mira Hoskins wants is stability and normality. But when sexy Jack McAllister enters her life, she discovers that what you want isn't always what you need.

Jack is a powerful witch with the ability to command fire and is anything but normal. As the head of a security detail for The Coven, a national organization that governs national witches, Jack has been assigned to watch over Mira. She is a natural born witch with the ability to call the air. And although she is unaware of her talent, a group of renegade witches has discovered her existence and are determined to steal her power--and her life.
My Thoughts:  This was one of those books that was a really fast, fluffy read.  Some bad stuff happens, but nothing that's going to induce screaming nightmares so you can read it right before bed and not give yourself the willies.  I'm going to pause to mention here that I watch horror movies alone at night in the dark so I don't really have a problem having the pants scared off of me.  I don't know what that had to do with this book, but there you have it.  I'm not afraid of scary things.  Unless it's a clown.  Or a spider.  I'm scared of those.

Fortunately for me, this book had neither clowns nor spiders.  It did have one powerful witch who's keeping secrets.  It also had another powerful witch who has no idea that she's the product of two strong bloodlines.  The two of them have some blistering sex.  But not literally blistering, becasue OUCH.

This was definitely in the fun, quick category for books.  I think I finished it in a few hours and I felt pretty good about myself afterward.  I guess I can't ask more than that.
