Not Your Ex's Hexes
In April Asher’s next Supernatural Singles novel, Not Your Ex's Hexes, a one-night-stand between a willful witch and a broody half-demon conjures an adventure that wouldn’t be complete without several magical mishaps.
For her entire life, Rose Maxwell trained to become the next Prima on the Supernatural Council. Now that she’s stepped down, it’s time for this witch to focus on herself. And not think about her impulsive one-night stand with Damian Adams, a half-Demon Veterinarian who she can’t get out of her head. Neither of them is looking for a relationship. But when Rose is sentenced to community service at Damian’s animal sanctuary it becomes impossible for them to ignore their sparking attraction. A friends-with-benefits, no feelings, no strings arrangement works perfectly for them both.
After a sequence of dead-end jobs, it’s not until Rose tangos with two snarly demons that she thinks she’s finally found her path. However, this puts Damian back on the periphery of a world he thought he left behind. He doesn’t approve of Rose becoming a Hunter, but if there's one thing he's learned about the stubborn witch, it was telling her not to do something was one sure-fire way to make sure she did.
Working—and sleeping—together awakens feelings Damian never knew he had...and shouldn't have. Because thanks to his ex's hex, if he falls in love, he'll not only lose his heart—but his humanity.
Asher's fun second Supernatural Singles paranormal romance (after Not the Witch You Wed) skillfully juggles humor, heart, and magical hijinks. After mistakenly trying to rescue emaciated horses from what turns out to be an animal sanctuary, witch Rose Maxwell is sentenced to community service at that same sanctuary under the supervision of sexy half-demon veterinarian Damian Adams, with whom Rose once shared a one-night stand. Now the flighty witch and the grumpy demon must play nice for the sake of the animals under their care. Meanwhile, their intense mutual desire—both of their internal monologues are exceptionally horny from the get-go—leads to them cautiously navigating a no strings attached relationship. Damian is determined not to develop feelings, as he lives under a hex that will cost him his soul if he falls in love—but staying detached proves difficult. And when Damian is lured back into his role as a Supernatural bounty hunter, Rose develops a taste for action as well, though she's unprepared for the risk. Asher's setting, which sees Supernaturals of all sorts dwelling alongside humans in the contemporary world, is somewhat hastily built on familiar tropes, but Asher enhances the basic worldbuilding with lively romance and sizzling chemistry. It's funny, fluffy, and fast-paced.
