Review, Blog Tour & Giveaway: To Tame a Wild Heart by Gwen Mitchell (New Adult, Urban Fantasy, Romance)

To Tame a Wild Heart
Gwen Mitchell
Publication date: June 21st 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Urban Fantasy
Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringes using her supernatural abilities and street smarts. Freedom—sleeping beneath the open skies and under the radar—is all she’s ever needed. But when an ancient council of witches discovers her powers, Audrey must submit to their training or be stripped of her gifts and her memory. Audrey knows better than to trust anyone, and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned a withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor. Even more disturbing is her desire to tear through his brooding façade and bare the man beneath when she should be focused on escape.
Corvin Wright values the solace of his duties and only finds peace among the birds entrusted to his keeping. But the council no longer sees a use for his unique gifts, and his sanctuary is in danger unless he can earn his place by babysitting a fledgling witch. The task becomes daunting when his apprentice turns out to be wilder and more broken than any creature he’s ever cared for. Her fiery spirit and dangerous beauty challenge every ideal of the life he’s built. As Audrey wrestles with her captivity and the bonds of responsibility laid upon her, Corvin must find a way to tame her wild heart before she breaks his.

Welcome to a new magical world created by Gwen Mitchell in her book To Tame A Wild Heart. A tad more grown up story about witches for the adults who loved Harry Potter. Audrey Taylor is the wild child witch who wants to live life alone and on her terms. When she is forced to make a choice between submitting to a coven or lose her powers, she tries to play nice. Add in Colvin, a falconer who wants to be left alone with his birds and you have a match made in... well, not heaven or hell. The two of them will need to learn to work together to help Audrey with her abilities. And although they may have some sexual tension burning between them, it takes time for the fires of friendship glow.

Mitchell’s book brings to life magic with a hint of Pagan mythology. The story is filled with stunning imagery from the get go. Starting in the sanitarium with the sights, sounds and smells that one could imagine and turn up there nose to.  There is a scene where he calls the birds to him and for me that is magical. You can feel his joy as they surround him. I love the connection with the birds especially his best friend and sidekick Smoke. The way he talks to his bird reminds me of how I am with my dog.This quick read will pull you in for a thrilling read.
