About the Book

As a powerful hedgewitch and psychic, there isn’t much I can’t work to my advantage and finesse with a spell. Love, fortune, and even the perfect cup of coffee are all possible with the snap of my fingers.

But some things are utterly beyond my control.

Like the powerful and broody warlock who’s been a part of my life for as long as I can remember—and even the lifetimes I often can’t. Things almost as dangerous as Lucien Bergeron’s hold on me and the breathtaking smiles only I get to see.

Or the evil still stalking the streets of New Orleans that beckons to me to see. To feel. To die.

With everything riding on a razors-edge, and things that have been portended coming to fruition, threatening both me and those I love, I’m not sure if I’m strong enough to resist my fate. Or his charm.

If I work with Lucien, it could mean the end for both of us.

If I don’t, those I love most will pay.

NICUnurse’s Review of Spells by Kristen Proby

Spells is the second book in the Bayou Magic series by Kristen Proby. While it can be read as a standalone title, there’s a mystery interwoven into the series that is best experienced by reading the books in order. Trust me when I say it’s worth your time and money investments.


I’ve been a long-time fan of Kristen Proby’s. There aren’t many books of hers that I won’t 1-click, most without even reading the blurb. However, I will admit that I had to take a moment to read the blurb for Shadows before jumping into the series, as it was a bit of a different type of story than she’s written in the past. That said, she also seems to be stretching her writing wings lately, and I’m always up for a new adventure with her, so I dove right in, loved it, and had to wait an agonizingly long time for this book. Then I promptly left it on my TBR until closer to book three’s release because the suspense is killing me! But Lucien and Millie’s story was so worth the wait.

And just like with Shadows, I was sucked in and hooked in the best possible way. It was spooky and, at times, horrifying, and I should not have read it at night. It was twisted. It was emotional. It was steamy. It was heartbreaking yet redeeming. And it was full of amazingly strong and savvy female characters. It also contained some revolting characters, but they are hauntingly necessary for this storyline.  

You’re going to want to set aside several hours where you will have minimal interruptions before you start this book because once you start, you will not want to put it down. Needless to say, as with her first true paranormal story, Shadows, I’d say she hit it out of the park once more with Spells. With Serendipity (book three) slated to release this October, I have just enough time to reread both books, so I’m all ready for what I’m sure will be a stunning conclusion to this paranormal series.

NICUnurse’s Rating: I give Spells by Kristen Proby 5 out of 5 propellers!
