Review: Blood of the White Witch
When love came knocking on the door of novice witch, Portia Mullins, in the form of handsome bad boy, Vance Mangum, she had no idea how quickly the attraction between them would escalate. Now she finds her relationship with Vance taken to a whole new level, in a way she had never dreamed possible at this point and time of her life. Yet even as the personal connection between them explodes, the two quickly find themselves in a world of shifting balances. While searching for Vance’s missing mother, they realize they are suddenly unsure of who to trust, learning that sometimes things are not always as they appear. When Vance’s demon characteristics abruptly begin to resurface again without warning, the horrible truth comes out, crashing down upon them and shattering some of their most precious dreams. Once the deadly plan is uncovered, Portia and Vance find themselves hastily rushing against the hands of time in an attempt to stop an ancient ritual from being performed. But will they be successful before fate reaches out to twist them cruelly, possibly separating them and changing magic forever? Passion, loyalties, powers, and family ties, will all be tested when dangerous adventures abound in this third installment in the Of Witches and Warlocks series, Blood of the White Witch.

Wow, this was an emotional book! This book starts off with Portia and Vance getting married. Now, Portia is only 16, so this may seem strange. Portia seems older than that though so somehow it just works. Vance and Portia have been waiting for marriage to be intimate, which is really sweet. Not that many teens wait these days. Vance and Portia are soulmates and are just perfect for each other so it was nice to see them finally be intimate with each other even though they are young. I would still consider this a young adult book though - the sex is not graphic at all.
I really enjoy the chemistry that Vance and Portia have. Even though they've been together for awhile, and they've kissed hundreds of times, it is still just as passionate as it was in the beginning. I love how the author is able to keep that passion so strong between these characters.
Once again, Vance and Portia go through a lot of challenging situations together. There were some extremely sad moments that will make you cry. You can't help but feel all these emotions with Portia. There was a major twist at the end of the book that had me stunned. Be prepared for a major cliffhanger. I can't wait to read the 4th and final book in this series!
