Harmony Cartwright is a witch and psychic one to boot. One of three triplet sisters, her power is the ability to read objects in order to learn things about their previous owners. This can be stressful on Harmony as not all the energy she receives is positive. Attending a yard sale with her two sisters to find items for their older sister’s vintage store, Harmony is drawn to a ring. It is that ring that leads her to Paxton Castle and its owner, King Paxton.
King has been trying to renovate the inherited eyesore that is his family home for months to no avail. But as soon as Harmony shows up, the workers are actually getting things done and the spirit that haunts the home settles down, somewhat. King doesn’t look a gift horse in the mouth and quickly hires Harmony to oversee the renovation of the home. As the two join together to get the renovation done, each for their own personal reasons, they find the attraction between them to be quite magical.
Readers will be delighted to revisit with the three Cartwright sisters first introduced in Annette Blair’s last novel, The Scot, The Witch and The Wardrobe. With Sex and The Psychic Witch, Annette Blair begins a new trilogy of magic-inspired stories with the three good, psychic witches: Harmony, Storm, and Destiny. Although the power of three is the strongest, Harmony proves quite capable on her own as she searches Paxton Castle for clues on its long dead, but still present, resident Gussie Paxton, and why her spirit still haunts the family home. King tries not to get sucked into Harmony’s “craft,” but finds it impossible to ignore the blatant haunting and as time goes by, his attraction to Harmony herself. But will the secrets he keep break the magical spell falling over the couple?
I found this to be a great addition to Blair’s already established witch-themed series (see also The Kitchen Witch and My Favorite Witch). The attraction between King and Harmony was evident from their first meeting and only got hotter as the novel progressed. The magical elements were not overdone and it was especially great to see the Cartwright’s positive interpretation of their powers rather than the preconceived negative connotations of others; the short and sweet spells they chant showcase this element perfectly. Sex and The Psychic Witch is a great addition to any Paranormal romance readers collection!
