It’s no secret that we love our romance books with a paranormal twist. Whether it’s a red hot paranormal romance with a fanged and broody hero, or an action packed urban fantasy with a shifter warrior by our side. But, as it’s the Halloween season we wanted to talk about a figure that is synonymous with the holiday; witches. However, the witches we are talking about aren’t the manically cackling black garbed and green skinned old ladies with an unfortunate wart problem. Instead, our witches are powerful female figures who use their magic to save the day and the get the guy!

Witch books, what the hag?

Witch books? What even is that? Who wants a romance book where you fall in love with a warty old hag who likes to sprinkle eye of newt in her morning coffee? Well, lets take the patriarchy out of the equation and take a (very brief) look at witches.

The history of witches is long and fascinating, and dark. Very very dark. Especially if you’re the witch. It also fluctuates from culture to culture. However, quite often it has one thing in common: it was a way to persecute women, especially those who lived on the outskirts of society. That is a sweeping generalisation of course, and in Scandinavian countries there were slightly more males accused of witchcraft than female.

Daughter of the Blood
by Anne Bishop

Series: Black Jewels #1

read this is you want:

In this dark fantasy, Jaenelle, the foretold witch has the unique ability to cross through worlds. This read is both fascinating and disturbing but so worth the read for the world building alone. For those of us who like our reading on the darker side, this is perfect. If you want something that has witches, magic, and mystical creatures, you should definitely pick up this book and meet Jaenelle.

Seven hundred years ago, a Black Widow witch saw an ancient prophecy come to life in her web of dreams and visions. Now the Dark Kingdom readies itself for the arrival of its Queen, a Witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But she is still young, still open to influence—and corruption.
 
Whoever controls the Queen controls the darkness. Three men—sworn enemies—know this. And they know the power that hides behind the blue eyes of an innocent young girl. And so begins a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, where the weapons are hate and love—and the prize could be terrible beyond imagining…

The Witch’s Heart
by Genevieve Gornichec

When a banished witch falls in love with the legendary trickster Loki, she risks the wrath of the gods in this moving, subversive debut novel that reimagines Norse mythology.

Angrboda’s story begins where most witches’ tales end: with a burning. A punishment from Odin for refusing to provide him with knowledge of the future, the fire leaves Angrboda injured and powerless, and she flees into the farthest reaches of a remote forest. There she is found by a man who reveals himself to be Loki, and her initial distrust of him transforms into a deep and abiding love.

Their union produces three unusual children, each with a secret destiny, who Angrboda is keen to raise at the edge of the world, safely hidden from Odin’s all-seeing eye. But as Angrboda slowly recovers her prophetic powers, she learns that her blissful life—and possibly all of existence—is in danger.

With help from the fierce huntress Skadi, with whom she shares a growing bond, Angrboda must choose whether she’ll accept the fate that she’s foreseen for her beloved family…or rise to remake their future. From the most ancient of tales this novel forges a story of love, loss, and hope for the modern age.

Phoenix Unbound
by Grace Draven

But this year is different.

Azarion, the Empire’s most famous gladiator, has somehow seen through her illusion, and is set on blackmailing Gilene into using her abilities to help him escape his life of slavery. And unknown to Gilene, he also wants to reclaim the birthright of his clan.

The Sea Witch
by Katee Robert

Series: Wicked Villains #5

Once upon a time, I met a man who stole my heart.

In my desperation to reunite with him, I have nowhere to turn but the Sea Witch. Ursa is as beautiful as she is dangerous, and the one person my father warned me never to let close. But she’s all crimson lips and pretty lies, and I’m convinced despite my fear.

It’s a simple enough plan, if not for the faint of heart. An auction to sell the one thing I possess of any value—myself. The money will free Alaric and then we can finally be together.

Except nothing is simple at all.

Ursa is playing at games I can only begin to comprehend. And Alaric? The man I thought I loved might be just as much a villain as the woman I can’t help but be drawn to.

When playing in the darkest depths of love and lust, it will be everything I can do not to drown.

Urban fantasy witch books

We have given you witch fantasy books already.. but we decided to do urban fantasy separately. But, what is the difference you ask?

These witch books also follow one heroine as she grapples with her own magic, powerful enemies and of course her love life. If you are in the mood for a witch book that’s more action packed and plot driven, take a look at these:

The Magic of Discovery
by Britt Andrews

Series: Emerald Lakes #1

Growing up in Emerald Lakes, population six hundred and eighty-two, had been safe and comfortable. Running my own magic shop and making a living off my green witchcraft, I have no complaints. Sure, there’s my ex, who never understood the word ‘no’, but there’s also the lovable and eccentric townspeople who feel more like one huge extended family, and let’s not forget my boy-crazed Gran who keeps us all on our toes.

…But something has apparently been missing, and the stars take it upon themselves to correct the problem, dropping four sexy men at my door. Well, not literally. They move into the apartment above my shop, so I’m their landlord. Drawn in by these mages who blew into town on a work assignment, a whole different kind of magic starts to grow between us, but my powers are doing things they shouldn’t, and there’s also a pesky prophecy to unravel.

Strange, unnatural things are brewing in Emerald Lakes, and I can’t ignore the sinking suspicion that something life-changing is headed my way.

Discovering a whole new world of magic, I can only hope I don’t lose myself in the madness.

Witch Fire

Passion is all consuming…

Mira Hoskins doesn’t know she’s a natural-born witch who possesses the rare—and powerful—element of air. And she never expects to find herself tied to a mahogany bed frame, captive of a man who aches to fulfill her every desire and let loose the magick that dwells inside her.

Heat emanates from elemental fire witch Jack McAllister. The Coven, a governing authority of witches, has sent him to protect Mira from a band of warlocks who drain witches of power…and life.

But she’s the long-lost cousin of his boss—making seduction off-limits.

Dead Witch Walking
by Kim Harrison

Series: The Hollows #1

read this is you want:

If there was ever a witch that needed to struggle to come into her full potential, it’s Rachel Morgan from The Hollows series. She starts the series without really knowing her true power and armed with just a desire for doing good.  It takes some time for her to understand things aren’t as black and white as she’s always thought and sometimes to do good, you have to taint yourself with some bad.  The growth Rachel shows throughout the series is one of the things that make endears her to me.  That, and the fact she is still a hot mess. If you like heroines to be perfectly imperfect then Rachel is your witch. She’s just as much fun as she is badass.

All the creatures of the night gather in “the Hollows” of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party . . . and to feed.

Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining—and it’s Rachel Morgan’s job to keep that world civilized.

A bounty hunter and a witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she’ll bring ’em back alive, dead . . . or undead.

Series: Whisper Hollow #1

Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living, and the lake never gives up her dead…

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I’m Kerris Fellwater and when I returned, I not only inherited my grandmother’s house, but her gift. Like her, I must take on the job of spirit shaman. It’s my gift-and my curse-to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people-and secrets-don’t always stay buried.

A trunk hidden in the attic throws my life into chaos.

My mother vanished when I was little and I was told she ran away. But now it looks like she was murdered. With the help of Bryan-my mysterious and brooding neighbor-we begin to unravel the mystery of her disappearance, and in doing so, we unearth a dark force seeking to bury Whisper Hollow. Now, I must work with the dead, rather than against them, because our enemy will do whatever she can to destroy the town, and she means to start with me.

Iron and Magic
by Ilona Andrews

Series: Iron Covenant #1

read this is you want:

Elara aka the White Warlock. She leads a rag tag group of people, all with their own magical capabilities and all view her as a mixture of their leader and their goddess. To keep them safe she has made a deal with the devil aka Hugh D’Ambray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs and all round ruthless Warlord. That’s when we watch the sparks fly as these two powerful individuals try to work together to keep themselves and their people safe.

I loved Elara, she’s powerful, smart and ruthlessly loyal to her people, if you are after a strong female protagonist Elara is perfect. But, what is really fantastic about this book is the interplay between Hugh and Elara. Both are used to being in-charge and their mixture of dislike and attraction that grows into respect and more is enthralling to read. If you want an enemies to lovers story between two alphas…this is for you!

No day is ordinary in a world where Technology and Magic compete for supremacy…But no matter which force is winning, in the apocalypse, a sword will always work.

Hugh d’Ambray…

Hugh d’Ambray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs, Warlord of the Builder of Towers, served only one man. Now his immortal, nearly omnipotent master has cast him aside. Hugh is a shadow of the warrior he was, but when he learns that the Iron Dogs, soldiers who would follow him anywhere, are being hunted down and murdered, he must make a choice: to fade away or to be the leader he was born to be. Hugh knows he must carve a new place for himself and his people, but they have no money, no shelter, and no food, and the necromancers are coming. Fast.

Elara Harper…

Elara Harper is a creature who should not exist. Her enemies call her Abomination; her people call her White Lady. Tasked with their protection, she’s trapped between the magical heavyweights about to collide and plunge the state of Kentucky into a war that humans have no power to stop. Desperate to shield her people and their simple way of life, she would accept help from the devil himself—and Hugh d’Ambray might qualify.

Hugh needs a base, Elara needs soldiers. Both are infamous for betraying their allies, so how can they create a believable alliance to meet the challenge of their enemies?

As the prophet says: “It is better to marry than to burn.”

Hugh and Elara may do both.

Blood Kissed
by Keri Arthur

Series: Lizzie Grace #1

In a world where magic and science sit side by side, and powerful witches are considered necessary aides for all governments, Lizzie Grace is something of an outlier. Though born into one the most powerful blue blood witch families, she wants nothing to do with either her past or her magic.

But when she and Belle, her human familiar and best friend, open a small cafe in the Faelan werewolf reservation, she quickly finds herself enmeshed in the hunt for a vampire intent on wreaking bloody havoc. It’s a hunt that soon becomes personal, and one that is going to take all her skills to survive–that’s if the werewolves, who hate all things witch, don’t get her first.

Sealed with a Curse
by Cecy Robson

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they’re products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…

The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense.

But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha’s family to keep the region safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight.

Dime Store Magic

Series: Women of the Otherworld #3

read this is you want:

If you haven’t read the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong then you’re missing out. This is a fantastic mix of urban fantasy and paranormal romance and contains a plethora of paranormal creatures, including witches.

Paige is a witch, the head of the leader of the American Covens, at least in name. All the other witches believe that she’s too young, wild and inexperienced to lead them. However, Paige is determined to drag them into this century. What I love about Paige is that although she isn’t the most powerful witch in this series, her curiosity and fierce loyalty still make her a formidable foe. She also had one of my favourite romances in the series, everyone talks about Clay, but Lucas’ quiet confidence steals the show for me.

Paige Winterbourne was always either too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as leader of one of the world’s most powerful elite organizations- the American Coven of Witches. Now that she is twenty-three and her mother is dead, the Elders can no longer deny her. But even Paige’s wildest antics can’t hold a candle to those of her new charge- an orphan who is all too willing to use her budding powers for evil… and evil is all too willing to claim her.

For this girl is being pursued by a dark faction of the supernatural underworld. They are a vicious group who will do anything to woo the young, malleable, and extremely powerful neophyte, including commit murder- and frame Paige for the crime. It’s an initiation into adulthood, womanhood, and the brutal side of magic that Paige will have to do everything within her power to make sure they both survive.
