I was intrigued by the use of the witch trials as a setting for this story and wasn't sure how they would blend with erotica but, wow, was it incredible. Ms. Dahl captured the hopelessness of the times and somehow turned it into something sexy.

Fear runs through the entire book - which is set within the governor's chambers as he examines an accused witch for the devil's mark. He has to examine her entire body and she has to respond to his touches to prove that she isn't marked. Even though it's shameful in this puritan time, she has to let him see how aroused he makes her. If she doesn't then that means she's a witch because the devil's mark makes witches unable to feel.

The governor does everything he can to make sure she does feel and it's all scary, super charged and incredibly hot, and the ending had me breathless for more. I'm glad book 2 came out by the time I read book 1 because I don't think I could have waited too long to read what happened next.

Arla Dahl's creative mind combined the hot topic of romantica and history in a unique way.

This story is a portal to a parallel universe of Salem-long-ago, but it's not like having a complicated history lesson, and you don't have to work hard to decipher flare of the historical romance language -- it's like super-sexy Shakespeare meets 50Shades.

What a terrifyingly terrific rollercoaster for the senses. A wild ride but written so poetic it's like reading a nightmarishly decadent dream. Beautiful and sinful.

I would recommend this for the bold-minded reader with a fantasy for more than the traditional light-hearted romance can offer.

And "Be This A Witch?" is my new favorite phrase!

I can't wait for the Book 2 -- I hope Arla Dahl is a fast writer!! lol
