Book of the Day: Cruel Enchantment

The winner of yesterday’s book is Junegirl63., who said, “This is a tough question! I like the fact that we do get all four seasons where I currently live but I hate the summers here because they are so hot and muggy! I think my ideal place to live in the US would be either the southern parts of Virginia or the northern parts of North Carolina…lol.” Congrats! Please drop me an email! Anyabast (at)

Today’s book……

Even the most powerful hands need a delicate touch…

Emmaline Gallagher is a master of wielding personal glamour. As a free fae who lives among humans, she must hide her true self at all times as she works undercover within the powerful Phaendir—for if certain factions within the Phaendir gain control, the fae will be wiped from existence. Now, an object of fae power lies within a locked ancient box. And there is only one fae who can forge the key.

Known as “the Blacksmith” Aeric O’Malley can create or destroy almost anything with his forging skills. Emmaline has come to him in need, but he and Emmaline have a past—and he has spent centuries wanting to take revenge on her for her transgressions. But now that he has her within his grasp, something about her keeps him from exacting his vengeance—or is it merely her glamour blinding him?

Trapped by fate, Emmaline must hope that she can reach Aeric’s furious heart before it’s too late….

  1. I’ve read Wicked Enchantment & will love continuing the story. I haven’t read a lot of paranormals, but Enchantment was a great representative of the genre.

  2. I have the Dark Magic series on my bookshelf. It is on my summer reading list.

  3. I’m familiar with you as an author but I unfortunately haven’t read anything by you yet Ms. Bast.

    Out of the series I’d like to get the most acquainted with.

    I think I’d really like to read the first books in both your Dark Magic and Elemental Witches series.

    They seem like a different sort of paranormal read and I think I’d really get into them.

  5. I was pretty sure I had read some of your books awhile ago, but when I checked your bookshelf, I couldn’t remember any of the titles – oh, dear – mama said there’d be days like this. Sorry! I’d like to read the Dark Magick series – to start! Thanks.

  7. I am savouring my way through the’ Dark Magick series’. I’m not in a rush because the end will come all to soon if I do.
