Rowan McAuliffe has been hiding most of her life. Secretly trained in her powers by an unusual source, she’d been taught not to trust anyone. Especially other witches. However, after she was forced to perform a hateful act against her will, she now hides from the Covens Syndicate and their judgment.
Greyson Masters is the Syndicate’s best hunter. On top of the danger of his job, Greyson is trying to raise his triplet daughters alone, budding new witches who display an alarming combined power no one understands. Too bad he doesn’t have a clue how to deal with them.
Until Rowan walks in and the chaos settles for the first time in… well, ever.
Little does Greyson realize that his new nanny is the very witch he is hunting, and she’s been hiding right under his nose this whole time.
(There are more titles listed on Goodreads but I’m holding off listing them until it’s clear that they will be re-released into this revamped series as I would prefer to read the most current version of the books, but you can find them listed on Goodreads.)

Title: Bait N’ Witch
Series: Brimstone, Inc. #3
Author: Abigail Owen
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Published: June 15, 2020
My Rating: 4.5 stars
‘Bait N’ Witch‘ is the third title in the ‘Brimstone, Inc.’ series – and this one may just be my favorite (of course, I think that with every new release in this series so who knows what the next one will become for me).
Sometimes hiding in plain sight is the best defense, and Rowan is right in the enemy’s lair as she becomes a nanny for Greyson’s triplet daughters, little preteens with astounding powers, and normally chaos rules in this household. Now, things are calming down and that’s all due to Rowan’s presence in their lives… but nothing lasts forever, and Rowan’s past is about to catch up with her. Will she lose everything she now holds close in her heart or will there be a way out of the trouble she’s landed in?
Aside from the obviously vile villains I loved everything about ‘Bait N’ Witch‘. Rowan’s so-called crime was at the instigation of a powerful werewolf who preyed on Rowan’s vulnerability and now she’s paying the price. Greyson is a powerful hunter and usually has no trouble bringing in the culprit he’s after, only this time is different. For the longest time, his target was elusive and when he discovers exactly where she’s been hiding he is definitely taken aback. A decision has to be made and now his choice is love or duty – and he knows which side he wants that decision to fall on. I am fascinated by the powers the triplets are showing. The chaos and confusion of the preteen years are bad enough, add in extreme supernatural powers and it becomes explosive. These five people become a family quite easily, now they have a battle on their hands to remain a family… and they are not shy about fighting for what is right and what they need.
If you love a really good Paranormal Romance then you need to be checking out this series. While I will always try to read a series in order, I know that’s not always possible for everyone (even me)… yet, you will find characters and some of their information from previous stories in this series in ‘Bait N’ Witch‘ so just be aware that you might get some spoiler information if you’re just joining – or background if you cannot go back to the beginning, it all depends on perspective, doesn’t it?
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher, Entangled 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.*
