"Horace bounced up and down in his excitement as he met Blair and Stasi at the kitchen door. 'Let me tell you, wolf shit smells really bad when it's set on fire. I put bags outside of every door, so they got it everywhere. That Roan dude was royally pissed, too. And I left a bag at the end of one of the ski runs and someone ran right into it!' he chortled. 'Talk about brown skid marks,' he snickered." (Page 232 of ARC)
Blair is a a hot-headed, sexy small-town witch with fiery locks who just happens to have the hots for a shape-shifting Were Border Collie outcast, Jake Harrison. Her roommate, Stasi (short for Anastasia) Romanov, own a pair of shops and a great deal of land, including a lake. While Stasi sells lingerie and romance novels, Blair sells a variety of antiques with each day bringing in a new theme, ranging from the roaring 20s to WWII.
Their quaint life is interrupted when Jake's former Pack moves in on the witches' land and attempts to bring him back into the fold. With help from a gargoyle sidekick named Horace, ghosts, and their other friends, the Were Pack runs into some trouble.
"Her squeak came out louder than expected. She turned to the front of the room and took a longer look. 'Oh boy, you're right -- that's one powerful Were up there, and I don't think he's a Werepoodle, either.'" (Page 68 of ARC)
Wisdom's characters are quirky and outlandish, but the magic is in the fun these characters have with one another and when battling common enemies. Readers who have not read paranormal romance before should be cautioned that there are detailed sex scenes in this novel and reality will have to be suspended. Readers looking for some light reading and just a good deal of fun, Hex in High Heels is for you this Halloween.
