Blurb from Amazon:
A spell that tore three sisters apart is broken four hundred years later, when the magic in their blood reunites them. Now, one of them will discover her gift-and reignite a love long thought lost…
Flame-haired Becca Carstairs was born to be a veterinarian. Since childhood, her affinity for animals has been special, and her healing touch nothing short of magic. But only Becca knows the truth-that she alone can hear the creatures’ voices. She’s always trusted her sixth sense…until a string of missing pets, an attempted murder, and a face from her past converge into one explosive mystery, with her at its center. Is haunted Owen McAllister, the boy who broke her heart ten years ago, related to the sinister crimes that have peaceful Three Harbors, Wisconsin, on its guard? Or is his reappearance part of the answer to questions that have troubled her all her life? As Becca delves into her strange heritage, she’ll have to fight for her life…and the man she will always love.
In the second book of this spellbinding new series, New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland delivers breath-taking danger, desire, and the dark heart of magic.

OMG, OMG, OMG! I was so excited to know I’d be getting HEAT OF THE MOMENT after reading IN THE AIR TONIGHT. And I wasn’t let down. The series continues to get better and better if that’s possible. As of now, HEAT OF THE MOMENT is my favorite of the series so far. Fans of Lori Handeland’s NightCreature Novels will recognize some familiar faces. If you are new to Lori Handeland I would recommend reading In The Air Tonight first, just so you know the characters who are introduced in HEAT OF THE MOMENT, however you can start with this one and not be lost. HEAT OF THE MOMENT is Owen and Becca’s story. Owen and Becca have a history, a past, one that is painful, but one the neither of them ever got over. With HEAT OF THE MOMENT, we watch as Owen and Becca reconnect while dealing with “witch-hunters”. If you’ve read book one, you’ll know that evil exists, if you haven’t read book one you’ll meet characters who will give you chills. There are a lot of animals in HEAT OF THE MOMENT, a wolf, a military war dog, cats, more wolves………..but then Becca is a Veterinary with special talents so we should expect to see animals. Their are some who become their own characters and who I hope will show up in book 3, they make an impact. I won’t go into detail on the story because I feel so much of it needs to found out for yourself. I will say the overall story and characters are OMG worthy.
I am not normally a fan of 1st person stories but with HEAT OF THE MOMENT and all of Lori Handeland’s stories, I tend to forget it’s 1st person. She does an awesome job of mixing 1st person with 3rd person to make for a great story. You become part of the story! The characters are well-written and intriguing. The story itself is fast-paced and keeps you engaged and eager to read more. I found HEAT OF THE MOMENT to be a hard to put down read! Fans of paranormal romances with heat, great storlylines and outstanding characters need to add HEAT OF THE MOMENT to their reading lists today! I am eager to get book 3, SMOKE ON THE WATER, I want to know what happens next! I highly recommend SISTERS OF THE CRAFT series to everyone!! HEAT OF THE MOMENT is one of those unputtdownable, up all night, eager for more reads that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Yes there is a touch of suspense, but you’ll quickly figure out the bad guy just not how it will all end, this one I have to say was a surprise for me, and yes even knowing that Lori Handeland would never let me down in the HEA department I still got a bit worried and teary-eyed. If you are looking a great read with loads of great characters, from the hero Owen, and his MWD Reggie to the heroine Becca you need to pick up HEAT OF THE MOMENT!
