Synopsis (Goodreads):
He’s a warrior, hardened by years of protecting his town from vampire attack. She’s a garden witch who sees the world in shades of sunshine and delight. Opposites don’t only attract, they go supernova in this sizzling tale of magic and mayhem.
Thoughts on Alejandro's Sorceress: I sort of wish I had read a book or two in the Warriors of Poseidon series before reading this novella. While I realize this series is a spin off from that series, I never really got a feel for the world and I think I would have appreciated the cameo appearances by a couple WoP characters WAY more than I did.

For the most part, I liked Rose and her crazy family. I'm not really sure how Rose expected to take care of her little garden pest problem on her own, but I can look past that. Especially when her granny started hitting on all the powerful men who showed up. I can't help it, inappropriate innuendo and comments by old ladies make me laugh.

I liked Alejandro, but I never really connected with him or his issues. His tortured bad boy thing didn't last long once he caught sight of Rose and I would have loved to delve deeper into his backstory to see more of what made him tick.

Enjoyable, but I really think I would have benefited by reading some of the WoP series first. The good news is I have the first couple books in that series to sink my teeth into. Maybe I'll give this one another try after I wallow in Atlantis for a bit.
