For a paranormal romance novel to really work, it requires the perfect balance between its two main elements. Too heavy on romance and paranormal readers will feel cheated and vice versa, so to come across a nail-biting series which gets the balance just right is always time to applaud. Book one in The Winters Sisters series, Chasing Victory, certainly hits the mark and it’s clear from the start that Joanne Jaytanie knows how to weave a compelling and enticing narrative without relying on genre tropes. Take it as a given that the plot is both intriguing and original with plenty of forward momentum and timely twists, but its Jaytanies characters that ultimately make it a page-turner and here she gets the chemistry spot on. Victory Winters and Tristan Farraday are both strong, sensual and multi-dimensional characters with cleverly nuanced personalities, which makes them both memorable and convincing as they’re pitted against the odds, whilst the telepathic connection they share adds a level of intensity that proves wholly addictive.
A hard to resist start to a scorching series, Jaytanie has certainly raised high expectations for successive releases. Sure to be well received by ardent fans of the genre and beyond, it is highly recommended.
