White Witch (The Coven #1) by Trish Milburn



"Jax" Pherson has power, enough power to know her future will end in service to the dark coven her father controls. Unless she can stay hidden in a small community in the mountains of North Carolina. She must find a way to live without magic and deny the darkness she feels welling up inside her-the same dark power that fuels the covens around the world.
All she wants is a normal life. A boyfriend. Friends. Some place to belong, but all too soon Jax's barely begun new life hangs in the balance when she discovers that the boy she's attracted to is sworn to kill her kind. He's a hunter with good reason to kill everything that goes bump in the night.
Even the most fleeting use of her power is tantamount to signing her death warrant and will bring both hunter and coven down on her. But can she walk away when her friends are threatened by an old evil? Something created by the magic of witches? Jax's only hope of survival is to convince the boy she loves to forget everything he's ever been taught and help her find a way to fight the covens. To believe there is some good in her.

A book I recommend to readers that love magic and witchcraft. Well written and suspenseful. 
Jax is in hiding from her family (and coven) to stay hidden she has to keep her powers under wraps no matter how much they build up. When she befriends a hunter, it takes a lot of convincing for her to explain that she needs his help to fight against her coven. It's no so much the fact of wanting to take down the witches, as this is what a hunter does. But for him to trust Jax.
I thought this story was cute, fun and entertaining. I have always been attracted to stories of covens and hunters and the author does a good job of combining a lot of elements together with some romance.

About this author



Trish grew up in Kentucky and got her degree in print journalism from Murray State University. After college, she worked as a newspaper reporter, a marketing assistant and finally a magazine managing editor before quitting to freelance write and copy edit. By taking the leap into freelancer-land, she also had more time to devote to writing fiction and chasing her dream of becoming a published novelist. While working toward her first sale, she placed eight times as a finalist in the prestigious Golden Heart contest sponsored by Romance Writers of America, winning twice. She was also a finalist in Harlequin American Romance’s Great American Novel contest, which led to her first sale to American Romance. She has served her local RWA chapter, Music City Romance Writers, in virtually every position, and as a director on RWA’s national board of directors.

Other than reading (her to-be-read pile is literally four digits), Trish enjoys traveling (by car or train—she’s a terra firma girl!), hiking, nature photography and visiting national parks. Two of her life goals are to visit every unit of the U.S. National Park Service and to hike the Appalachian Trail. While many authors buy themselves a piece of jewelry or gorgeous new shoes to commemorate their first sales, Trish bought herself a TiVo so she doesn’t miss any of her favorite shows while she’s banging away at the computer keyboard to meet her deadlines.

In addition to writing romances for Harlequin American Romance and Harlequin Nocturne, Trish writes young adult novels Bell Bridge Books. She and her wonderfully supportive husband, who is also a Kentucky native, eventually moved a little further south, which Trish likes because she hates being cold. She could totally get used to decorating a palm tree for Christmas if she ever ended up living in Florida.
