Free-spirited artist Stormy Jones-Smythe was raised by two talented Wizard fathers but never showed the slightest hint of magical abilities. Which is why she’s totally surprised when three famous fairy godmothers show up at her door to tell her she’s one of them.

Surprised, and none too happy.  The godmothers are fugitives, framed for treason, and the last thing the magical Council wants is another fairy godmother going rogue. Hence Stormy’s new full-time Guard, Hunter Merrick.

Stormy quickly realizes she’s not going to escape Hunter’s watch…and before long, she’s not sure she wants to. But her freedom depends on her ability to expose the plot against the godmothers, and that means getting control of her magic. Despite the growing chemistry between them, Hunter is fiercely loyal to the Council—and duty-bound to keep Stormy from doing either of those things.

But he didn’t count on Stormy’s irrepressible exuberance and passion for life. Before long, even Hunter isn’t sure which side he’s on, and he can’t contain Stormy either way.

First Thought when Finished: My favorite of the series!

What I Loved: Hunter and Stormy together made a great couple. I loved that Stormy was strong-willed, willing to search for answers on her own, and willing to stand for her beliefs even if it meant not having Hunter in her life. Hunter was an amazing man: strong, loyal, handsome, and at all times honorable. Their love story is my favorite as it just felt organic and natural.

What I Liked: Finally all 3 “new” godmothers together. Their personalities just meshed perfectly together and I could see in the future they were going to have lots of fun (and drive those men of theirs insane) 🙂 I am always a big fan of books that end with strong friendships and this one delivered on that. There were some emotional moments, I cried–twice, and there were some fun moments (can I have Tank? I will be his HEA). This was just a well-balanced story that really gave me a fantastic feeling at the end.

Final Thought: I really did enjoy each of the books in the Time of Transition series. While I have no idea if there are going to be more (I hope there is) this is a world that I just adore. If you like Fairy Godmothers, hot guys, and a little wish granting then these stories are for you!

    • I think you will like them though I think you will like her historical more (published under Gabi Anderson). Her Fairy Godmothers were fun, light, and great summer afternoon reads. Her historical was just downright excellent!

    How come I have not come across this series before? Sounds really my kind of thing, so on the wishlist it goes! Thanks for the review Felicia.

    Sounds good 🙂 I can't remember the other books at the moment so I need to go and have a look

  3. Of course I like hot guys and fair godmothers! And I agree with you about the strong friendships. I like seeing those types of relationships develop.

  4. I just got this book in the mail and was completely unfamiliar with the series, so I'm so glad you posted this review today Felicia! I obviously need to go back and read the first several books, but I think this will be a series I really enjoy. Who wouldn't enjoy hot men and fairy godmothers?
