Blood of the White Witch
Book 3 - Of Witches and Warlocks by Lacey Weatherford

Amazon Product Description:
When love came knocking on the door of novice witch, Portia Mullins, in the form of handsome bad boy, Vance Mangum, she had no idea how quickly the attraction between them would escalate. Now she finds her relationship with Vance taken to a whole new level, in a way she had never dreamed possible at this point and time of her life. Yet even as the personal connection between them explodes, the two quickly find themselves in a world of shifting balances. While searching for Vance's missing mother, they realize they are suddenly unsure of who to trust, learning that sometimes things are not always as they appear. When Vance's demon characteristics abruptly begin to resurface again without warning, the horrible truth comes out, crashing down upon them and shattering some of their most precious dreams. Once the deadly secret is uncovered, Portia and Vance find themselves hastily rushing against the hands of time in an attempt to stop an ancient ritual from being performed. But will they be successful before fate reaches out to twist them cruelly, possibly separating them and changing magic forever? Passion, loyalties, powers, and family ties, will all be tested when dangerous adventures abound in this third installment in the Of Witches and Warlocks series, Blood of the White Witch.
My thoughts:
~ short version ~
Yet another wild ride from Lacey Weatherford!  We see the same incredible characters in this story that we have come to know and love in the first two books in this series and only come to love them more!  Another must read!  

Blood of the White Witch is filled with danger, romance, intrigue, trust, deception, and love.  The story starts off right where we left off in book two and the plot hits the ground running.  Once again Lacey has created a phenomenal story that keeps you turning the pages!

~long version~ (spoiler alert)
I was impressed that Lacey Weatherford was able to create such an intense, emotional, young adult romance without ever losing the integrity of the YA part of that romance.   She was able to communicate the tremendous physical attraction between Vance and Portia without being graphic.
I couldn't put this one down!  The story has more twists than ever before with the deception and betrayal of  more of Vance's family.   I was sad when I realized that they were playing on his desire to be a part of a family, although I was expecting them to not be what they seemed to be.  So many people in this one are not who and what they appear to be, but we do get to meet new and helpful people in this book too.
The struggle of good against evil continues......
I couldn't put this one down - read it cover to cover in one sitting!  Got to the end - devastated!  I only wish book 4 was available - I don't know how I will survive the wait!
