Publisher's Summary

Three sexy-but-psycho monsters. One fiery, determined witch. And a high-stakes heist about to go very wrong....

I've made some pretty questionable choices in the name of my witchcraft - dabbling in necromancy, double-crossing vampires - but summoning the dark goddess? That was just plain stupid.

Now I’m in her debt, and goddesses don’t exactly do payment plans. She wants the blood of the dark fae warlord of Midnight, a realm of exiles where the sun never rises and torture is a competitive sport. It’s a death trap only three men have ever escaped - my newly appointed escorts.

Jax, a terrifying demon whose icy touch leaves me trembling in more ways than one. Hudson, a hulking, fiercely loyal shifter hiding secrets so painful he barely speaks. And Elian, a cocky fae prick with eyes like molten silver and a heart full of vengeance - a heart that once belonged to me.

I’ll do anything to settle my debts and get back home, even if it means teaming up with my infuriating ex and the other sinfully hot psychos for the most dangerous blood heist in history.

But when it comes to the cruel fae warlord, not even my monsters can protect me....

Especially when we discover why the dark goddess really sent us to Midnight.

Blood and Midnight is the first book in The Witch’s Monsters series, a steamy paranormal and dark fantasy romance featuring a sassy, badass witch and the fiercely protective monsters who’ll destroy anyone who touches her. Expect sizzling enemies-to-lovers romance, damaged guys who hate everyone but their witch, and plenty of dark, supernatural thrills!

Loved the action, steam and unexpected twists!

When a book draws you in immediately at the Dedication, you know it’s going to be great! If it hadn’t happened then, I certainly would’ve been hooked by the Prologue of Blood & Midnight by Sarah Piper. As Haley, a blood witch, decides that falling in love with heroes and villains isn’t for her, she announces that she wants monsters instead. And monsters she gets!

After making a deal with a dark goddess to help break a curse and save her sisters, she embarks on a quest to the dark fae realm of Midnight. She can’t go it alone and needs the help of Elian, a vampire fae who broke her heart and has been to Midnight and back. Elian brings along his hot friends Jax (a sexy demon) and Hudson (a quiet gargoyle) to help Haley. Their protection of her is fierce and their attraction to her is undeniable. She is drawn to each of her monsters in different ways and each one has shades of both hero and villain. This is an exciting story set in a dark yet beautiful world that ends with quite the cliffhanger (something Sarah Piper does so well!) and it will leave you wanting more...and wanting it right away!

I listened to the audiobook and absolutely loved the narration by Mackenzie Cartwright, Teddy Hamilton, Jason Clarke and Aaron Shedlock. These narrators are excellent and they make the story even more compelling, exciting and steamy. I loved the writing, the unique characters and these amazing voices!

Where’s the romance?

So far, the heroine has slept with everyone but by the end of the book she has a relationship with absolutely no one. And it ends on a huge cliffhanger with no warning in the title’s details. Nope!

Blood and midnight

I loved this audiobook so much! It drew me in from the moment I hit play. I didn’t want to pause it or stop listening no matter what. It was really intense with a lot of great action. I really liked the different mythical creatures in the story. There was a cliffhanger that is driving me crazy. I need the next book and can’t wait to find out what else is going to happen. Definitely well worth a credit since I think this series is going to be amazing!

Kinda growly Jason Clarke is beyond hot!

Elian and Haley are former lovers who once made plans for their future. But that future was suddenly cut short, and Haley was left behind. Given an order of a very difficult task to save her family, Haley is forced to finally confront her past. And what a hot fey vampire Elian turns out to be. Keeping him company is Jax, a demon and Hudson, a gargoyle.

Hayley needs Elian's help to get her where she needs to go for her dangerous mission. Jax and Hudson agree to join her and Elian on their journey. Being the badass witch she is, Haley doesn't take any mess from any of these guys. But that doesn't stop the attraction she feels towards all three. And as Jax and Hudson get to know Haley, they become quite protective of her. Elian notices, and doesn't quite know what to make of it.

There's so much action, strong chemistry and sizzling heat. Each of them has their own backstories and tortured pasts. I loved finding out more about them as the story goes on.

I thought the plot was great. I'm not much of a paranormal reader, and I really liked the building of the story. It didn't overwhelm me, and the layering informed me in a way I didn't get lost, or ask "what the heck?" as the story progressed. This story ends in a cliffhanger, and I can't wait for book 2!

Mackenzie Cartwright, Jason Clarke, Teddy Hamilton, and Aaron Shedlock do such an amazing job bringing all the supernatural things to life. They were perfect in all their roles! Jason has the task of narrating a mute character, so he gets extra points for the wonderful job of giving voice to a voiceless being.

Love this new series starter from Sarah Piper

Wow, what a thrilling, action packed series starter!

Blood and Midnight is the first book in The Witches Monsters series. This does end with a cliffhanger, you can not go into this expecting the full story. BUT you can come out of it looking forward to more. I need the next book, Blood and Malice, ASAP because that ending has me on the edge of my seat!

Haley is a witch after my own heart. She's a little bit broken, but a lot determined, and she's still finding her way. When she crosses paths with a blood witch, and has to make a journey that she never expected, she's thrown back into contact with Elian, the fae warrior that broke her. He broker her heart, her soul and her spirit. But he's the only one that can help her, or so Haley thinks. Enter Elian's brothers, Jax and Hudson, a demon and a gargoyle shifter respectively, and Haley finds herself with the team of her dreams. And some of those dreams are intense. Haley is drawn to each of them, and they are equally drawn to her.

This book spent a fair amount of time setting the stage, but there was so much action and character development that you didn't feel like it was all backstory. It was fast, paced, entertaining and steamy.

Narration by Mackenzie Cartwright, Jason Clarke, Teddy Hamilton and Aaron Shedlock is amazing. It suits the story so well. Each really captures the spirit of their characters. I can't wait for more.

Cliffhanger is so worth it...

Sarah's dedication hit me right in the heart. Owning our hurt, scars, and past failures let's us take our lives back and come out stronger on the other side. I love the incredible worlds she builds and how multifaceted her characters are. This is an amazing start to the journey ahead for Hayley, Jax, Elian, and Hudson. I love an RH when it's so meaningful and about far more than just the sexy stuff.

Blood and Midnight

I absolutely loved this book about Haley and her monsters. It was great to hear references to Black Moon Bay, but having a new cast of characters was entertaining. Haley has a interesting back story and we learned so much about her in this book. I cant wait to see where things go next for Haley and crew.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I always love a good Sarah Piper book and I was not disappointed. I love her monsters and how they are with her. She is slowly bringing her walls down with them and showing that she is not as tough as they think she is. Either way they listen to her and hold her tight. one thing about her though is that she sure has a sex drive and I just wish I could relate. Aaron, Jason, Teddy, and MacKenzie did an amazing job narrating this book and can't wait to hear more from them.

Thrilling and Intense!

This is my first Sarah Piper book and it was a thrilling ride! Full of witty, sexy banter, hot chemistry, and action packed twists & turns. This captivating story pulls you in from the start. Haley’s mission is not only impossible to achieve but also needs the help of her ex who broke her heart and she still loves.

I enjoyed every minute of this story. It was slow burn steam, sexy, funny, and action packed with some angst thrown in. Haley’s story is so heartbreaking and Im really hoping she and Elian are able to get their second chance HEA. I’m not a big fantasy romance reader but this book has hooked me in and now I need to know how this story ends. Elian, Jax & Hudson we’re all so different, yet easy to fall for. Haley was fierce, yet vulnerable. The attraction between Haley and her monsters was so intense. Haley & Elian still have a lot to work out, so we get to see a beautiful friendship develop with her & Hudson and hot passionate relationship with Jax.

This book featured four incredible storytellers, Mackenzie Cartwright, Jason Clarke, Aaron Shedlock, & Teddy Hamilton, who made this fascinating story come to life. Mackenzie brought on the sass for Haley and the emotional angst from Elian’s heartbreak was perfect. As always, Teddy does a great job playing the cocky, arrogant, fake vampire, Elian. Aaron’s and Jason’s growly voices add depth to Jax, the brooding demon, & Hudson, the mysterious gargoyle. They made me fall for Jax & Hudson. The way Jason kept saying “baby girl” to Haley was just the cherry on top! *swoon* This group of narrators are wonderful cast. I loved the whole narration and story and can’t wait to find out what happens next! The twist at the end was shocking!

Fantastic

Book 1 in The Witch’s Monsters series by Sarah Piper.
OMG where to start. This is a first book for me by Sarah Piper seen a lot of her work for awhile but not got around to reading any of it on this case listening. I did start with this book which as I’ve started listening to it and realised that I was behind and missed part of this backstory because it’s in a previous series but once I realise this and listen to it in a different way it is a fantastic book I’m gutted it’s taken me this long to find this writer of the series. it is full on it’s action packed it starts off really quick and the witches monsters as she calls them are sexy as hell and I love that each one of them is very distinctive and different in character and the fact that there is quite a lot of narrators in this book so each one has a different sound in different feel to them absolutely love it cannot wait for more and I’m gutted again that is taking me this long to find them.
It’s an absolute must to listen to this an audiobook it is amazing I cannot tell you how great it is worth well more than five stars but that’s a limit

Wow

Witches , Demons , Shifters and a Vampire Fae and an attraction between them all that’s so hot what else do you need . Hayley has to steal blood from the midnight fae warlord her 3 protectors are by her side although her fear demon sees what’s really inside her . I think she will need to let the darkness out to get them all safely home and I’m eagerly awaiting book 2 . The multicast narration was perfection.

Love, monsters, other realms and betrayal!!

This amazing book is set in NOLA and Midnight, an prison universe for Fae, Demons, Vampires, Ghouls etc. Only the worst of the worst are sent there and after escaping, Hayleys guys aren't keen on returning but it's amazing what you'll do for love.... Or lust.

The story follows Hayley Barnes a Blood witch from Black Moon Bay who has to fulfil a promise made to the Dark Goddess.

I really enjoyed the flow of the story and the multiple POVs really helps under the story from other perspectives. The readers felt true to the characters they were portraying. The relationship between Hayley and the guys is deep and intense from the start, thanks to her history with Elian there is alot of hate and anamosity (which we all know leads to some pretty hot scenes 😍). Hudson is her rock, in more ways than one and Jax gets under her skin and shows her not to fear herself. I thought I would struggle to visualise the scenes with it being an audio book version but actually it made me stop and just enjoy the readers voices and the experience was much more intimate and intense. I felt like I was there with them.

You will fall in love with all of the characters and become completely enthralled in their journey. This is my first audio book that I've reviewed and I have to say, I'm glad it was one of Sarah Piper's books.
