Cursed by a spell meant to destroy them, Taran Wird and her sisters instead developed unique magical talents. With the power of fire and lightning literally at her fingertips, Taran doesn’t fear much. Demons, vamps, whatever—bring ’em on! Only one thing terrifies her: commitment.
Taran is crazy about her boyfriend, Gemini, a sexy were with the incredible ability to split into two separate wolves. But after watching her sister go through heartbreak with the pack’s Alpha, Taran knows not to count on happily ever after—despite Gemini’s desire to claim her as his mate. Reluctantly, she agrees to meet his very traditional and conservative parents. Taran’s a badass with a mouth to match, and Gemini loves her for it. She’s just not positive these attributes will please Mom and Dad.
Unsurprisingly, every attempt by Taran to bond with Gemini’s folks proves disastrous. But in the end, Taran finds that winning them over means unleashing her powers . . . and proving that this foul-mouthed fire-starter is a force to be reckoned with.
Woohoo! It’s Taran, baby! My favorite hot-tempered, foul-mouthed Wird sister takes center stage in Of Flame and Promise. I love the Weird Girls series, and I’m so happy that we’re getting books from Taran’s POV now. Even though this is from a different POV, this is still the sixth book in the series and should be read in order.
I expected this to pick up right after the last book, but instead we jump back in time. I was a little bummed about that because I want to know what’s going to happen between her and Gemini. However, as the story progressed, I realized this was much needed. We need to understand Taran and the progression of their relationship. And c’mon, watching poor Taran go through meeting Gemini’s parents was painful at times, but it was certainly entertaining. Sorry, Taran, but I’m totally laughing at your misery with the parents. I love ya, though.
It was just nice getting to see Gemini from Taran’s perspective too, and experience how he feels for her. I love how he balances her out and is patient with her. Plus, it’s always hot when a couple fights side-by-side. These two definitely make a great team.
Of Flame and Promise was exciting, funny, and oh la la sexy! I can’t wait to get more of Taran and Gemini.
