After losing his immortality Mikhail Day isn't sure of his
place in the world. However, he does know he will never make
the mistake of helping a damsel in distress ever again. But
when Jenna Quilan shows up at his door, lost, pregnant and
running from a fairy curse, Mikhail knows he has to help. As
the two travel through the magical Otherworld to defeat the
curse a friendship starts to form, and Mikhail begins to
wonder if he's found his place in the world after all.
DANGEROUSLY CHARMING is the first book in Deborah Blake's
Riders series, which follows the lives of the Riders
from her Baba
Yaga series. Readers, I believe, will be
thrilled to learn more about the somewhat mysterious Riders,
and how their lives have changed since the last Baba
book. Mikhail is the youngest Rider, and he's a wonderful
hero. He shows immense character growth throughout the
story, he is sweet and endearing, and he is the perfect mix
of human and paranormal. Jenna is charming, quick-witted,
and independent, and readers will love her kindness and
determination. Their romance is steamy and adorable all at
the same time. Some former characters return, such as
Barbara Yager, from the first Baba
Yaga book, and the Queen
and King of the Otherworld. This not only connects the two
series, but will keep fan in the fairytale world they remember.
Blake sets most of DANGEROUSLY CHARMING in the Otherworld,
and her descriptive setting will have readers feeling as if
they are traveling through the magical land along with
Mikhail and Jenna. Gregori's cabin, the picturesque oasis,
and the quaint villages all conjure images of a fairytale
world of magic and secrecy. The plot twists keep the story
moving at a nice pace, and I like that the reader can try
and figure out the answer to the curse along with Jenna.
Monsters, giant lizards, and temperamental salamanders help
to create a world readers will love to get lost in. Once
started it was hard to put this book down. DANGEROUSLY
CHARMING is a great continuation of a magical series
modernizing fairytales readers won't want to miss.
From the author of the Baba Yaga novels, a brand new
series set in the same â€śaddictingâ€ť* world, filled with wild
magic, enchanting damsels, and the irresistibly daring men
who serve the Baba Yagas...
The Riders are three immortal brothers who protect the
mythical Baba Yagas. But their time serving the witches has
endedâ€”and their new destinies are just beginning...

brothers of their calling to be Riders, Day has hidden from
his shame and his new, mortal life in a remote cabin in the
Adirondack mountains. But when a desperate young woman
appears on his doorstep, he cannot resist helping herâ€”and
cannot deny how strongly heâ€™s drawn to her...
For generations, women in Jenna Quinlanâ€™s family have been
cursed to give up their first born child to the vengeful
fairy Zilya. When Jenna finds herself unexpectedly pregnant,

baby, even if it means teaming up with a mysterious and
charismatic man with demons of his own...
To unravel the curse, Jenna and Day will have to travel deep
into the Otherworld. But the biggest challenge of the
journey might not be solving an ancient puzzle but learning
to heal their own broken hearts..
