Dangerous Magic - Review

Convinced she's a stalker magnet, Gwen Mitchell is taking a break from work and from men, trying to figure out what's next in her life. When she meets sexy reporter Nathan Stark, on assignment to interview witches in Salem, Ma, life gets a lot more interesting as she struggles with an attraction to a guy she's not sure she can trust.Nathan is caught off-guard when one of the women he meets while conducting interviews happens to resemble a woman who keeps turning up dead in his nightmares. Unfortunately, his dreams have a history of becoming reality. To protect her, he'll have to face the past he's tried to leave behind him. However, it doesn't take long before they both fall prey to the powerful sexual attraction that they can't seem to fully control, and that might be the biggest danger of all.

**Love the HOT cover!!**
There is something about witch stories that always draws me in. Dangerous Magic by Samantha Hunter tells the story of Gwen. Suffering from bad dreams is in her local wiccan store buying supplies to make a dream pillow. And Nathan is in the same store to write a piece about witches and he sees the woman he's been having sex dreams about for months. The same woman who also dies in every dream. Not only that, his dreams ever since he was a child have been premonitions of things to come. 
He's freaked to see the woman he's been hip bumpage with for months and she is freaked when it looks like Nathan is stalking her. 
The pair have to work together to discover the meaning of his dreams and just who is suddenly attacking witches, are the two incidences connected? 
Nathan and Gwen were fun to read about, i liked that even though Nathan has this extraordinary gift he is still sceptical of the paranormal. i liked that even though they had major chemistry they weren't instantly in love and they fought what was happening to them. 
It's steady paced, sometimes it felt a little too steady, i was hoping for a bit more drama, Gwen is a witch and i would have liked to have seen more magic, those were my only two niggles i had with Dangerous Magic. 
Want to know about the smex? Of course you do! Goodness, the author BROUGHT IT! I do love it when an author doesn't skimp on sexy details. it was Hawt. much Hawt! 
Some quotes i loved: 

She dropped her arms and stepped forward, taking his hands in hers. The jolt of her touch nearly dropped him to his knees. What was it that she affected him like that every time? Something was happening between them, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to know what it was, and yet he was dying to find out. 

“Oh, there’s really not much to do. I’ll just run to the kitchen and be back in a sex. . .I mean, sec.” He pretended he didn’t hear the slip, but turned his head to hide his smile 

A spellbinding story, i give Dangerous Magic by Samantha Hunter 3.5 Sparkles out of 5!
