In the high desert pueblo, the old beliefs have never died. And when witchcraft can be the only explanation for murder, Luke, Tom and Rico, former renegades, must step up to save their people and the women they love.

Part 1: Luke

In the first novella of the series, Luke Cordova is devastated when the man who saved him from life as an outcast is murdered. He’s determined to find out who killed his uncle Joe Cordova. At first he will accept no help from Ashley Donaldson, a woman who was born on the pueblo and came back to find her roots. But she’s just as strong willed as Luke and just as beholding to Joe, and when the two of them unite to track a killer with magic powers, the heat that’s been smoldering between ignites into flames.

Renegade Magic: Luke…Tom…Rico…each of these compelling stories ends with an HEA for the hero and heroine. But only the full set will finally get to the bottom of the murder mystery. Be sure to read them all!

My Rating:  4 stars

If you enjoy murder mysteries with a paranormal twist then you’d enjoy Luke (Renegade Magic).  However – no matter what label you may use, series or serial or trilogy, this is a story where the main characters have their happy ending but the murder mystery continues on into the next two stories with that part concluding only at the end of the third story.  There are often plot threads that an author weaves throughout a series so this isn’t all that different for me… but some readers like their story to be complete at the ending, this one won’t be, not completely.

Luke and Ashley make an interesting couple.  Both have their reasons for their need to discover exactly what happened to Joe.  They also have their suspicions of each other and others.  I enjoyed their story, it’s short but the paranormal aspect grabbed my attention as I began searching for my own clues.  This is a trilogy that I will follow through to the end.  Luke has my attention and now I need to know what happens next.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
