While running for her life, she encounters Nik Zaros, a man so handsome she swears he would put a Greek statue to shame. Strapped to a plow being pulled by the mighty Marathonian Bull, Nik has been tortured and is near death. Cassie’s heart goes out to him, and she feels compelled to take him along with her.
Upon recovering, Nik is immediately attracted to the charming sorceress. Though she stirs his blood, he can’t help but suspect her of being in league with the demon, Prince Drakon. He soon discovers Cassie wishes to be free from the demon’s control, just as he does, and only love’s magic can save them.
Relentlessly pursued by Prince Drakon, Cassie and Nik begin a dangerous journey across the Underworld. Dodging perils at every twist and turn, they develop a profound love for one another, and discover only a sacrifice of the heart can keep them together.

A Witch at Midnight is an interesting paranormal romance novel featuring Cassandra – or Cassie – as the main character. Cassie is a witch, and on the night of her wedding she’s kidnapped by a demon, which screams but luck but she’s not so into the groom anyway. She escapes from the demon and runs into charismatic and handsome Nik, and they’re immediately attracted to each other. But of course it’s not that easy for them to just be together – a demon stands in their way, and they can only truly love each other if they free themselves from the demon’s hold.
Paranormal romance at its best, A Witch at Midnight is enthralling from start to end. I had some trouble with the first chapters because this is a sequel, and I hadn’t read the first book. However, that feeling didn’t last long. The story starts with Cassie getting kidnapped in the first ten-or-so pages, and it’s non-stop action and adventure from there. Cindy Reynders has painted a vivid imaginary world with witches, demons and warlocks. Reminded me of Charmed, but in a good way.
Cassie is an endaring heroine, but it was Nik who truly made things interesting. He was a great love interest, powerful and intelligent at the same time, and I also liked his sense of humor.
If you enjoy paranormal romance, you can’t say no to this book. It brings originality to popular, well-known tropes, an interesting cast of characters and a trip through the underworld you won’t forget soon.
