The last thing he wanted was to fall for a witch...

Veterinarian Kat Ramsey hasn't a clue that she's a witch. Sure, she can read minds, and there's the whole “dimension-hopping” issue that she can't quite control, but Kat is determined to keep things normal. That is, until she accidentally hops into the Otherworld, and runs smack into Matthew Ryan–the seriously hot one-night stand from years ago who shoved her out of his dorm. Naked.

And there's the tiny matter of the curse she gave him.

May you never find satisfaction with another woman. Billionaire and former druid Matthew Ryan hasn't forgotten the curse, or the witch who gave it to him. Kat's unexpected return means the curse will finally be broken. Unfortunately, his libido has other ideas–like how to get her back into his bed one last time. But far more worrying is his suspicion that Kat is the seventh Pleiades witch. Because while he's turned his back on his druidic ways, he's still bound to protect the woman who made his life hell...


Protecting His Witch is book one in the Keepers of the Veil series by Zoe Forward. 

I’ve had this title on my TBR for a while and won a copy back in 2015. I wasn’t sure what to expect; but I did end up enjoying the story and am interested to read on in the series.

We are introduced to Druids, Witches, Curses, an evil society and more. The main focus is on Kat, the lost Pleiades and Matt, who left the Druid Society and is now in Corporate American.

Kat has know idea what she is. She’s been jumping dimensions for years, but doesn’t understand why. She does always end up near this man who seams to have a pull on her. Their relationship is rocky, turbulent, and full of heated moments.

Kat takes her gift and dimension jumping in stride. She’s jumped since she was a teenager and instead of breaking down and ending up in a mental ward, she took control of her life and learned to live with it. We meet a lot of characters and each are intense in their own way. As for Matt that man has issues, but when it comes to Kat boy does the passion and protectiveness come out.

Protecting His Witch was enjoyable though I did have a bit of trouble getting into the story. Where we start is a bit confusing. We don’t know these characters and we don’t know what dimension jumping is. I don’t think I fully understand it and the Pleiades. It felt like we needed more information development. Maybe we get more as the series progress, but I was a bit lost at the start. Once things moved along I was intrigued to see if Kat and Matt would have a relationship or not.

It’s a decent start with a nice premise. I look forward to seeing where things go next and getting to know and fall for another couple in the next installment.

Rated: 3 Stars

  1. I would feel a disconnect at first, too, if I was dropped into the middle of a paranormal world. Glad you were able to get into it after a bit and want more of the characters and the series.

    • It just plops you in with no explanation. It was a ruff start until I understood what was happening. The next two books where a bit better, but I’m not won over. Thank’s for visiting!
