Known as the wicked witch of Russian fairy tales, Baba Yaga is not one woman, but rather a title carried by a chosen few. They keep the balance of nature and guard the borders of our world, but don’t make the mistake of crossing one of them…

The only thing more fiery than Bella Young’s red hair is her temper. She knows that a Baba Yaga’s power without strict control can leave the people she cares about burned, so to protect her heart—and everyone around her—the only company she keeps is her dragon-turned-Norwegian-Forest-cat, Koshka.

But when Bella is tasked with discovering who’s setting magical fires throughout Wyoming’s Black Hills, she finds herself working closely with former hotshots firefighter Sam Corbett—and falling hard for his quiet strength and charm.

Sam may bear the scars of his past, but Bella can see beyond them and would do anything to help him heal. Only before she can rescue her Prince Charming, she’ll have to overcome the mysterious foe setting the forest fires—a truly wicked witch who wields as much power and even more anger than Bella.

The third novel in the Baba Yaga series, is about the Babs Yaya, Belle Young. Unlike her Baba Yaga sisters: Barbara, who has one part of the US and Beka, who guards the West Coast, particularly California, Belle watches over the Midwest—mainly forests and deserts. She is called to Wyoming’s Black Hills and settles there with her caravan and her dragon shifted as a Norwegian Forest cat in the National Forest. Some people from town approach her, tasking her with finding who is behind the forest fires that have been happening. The Queen of the Otherworld also instructs her to find the three missing Riders: Day, Sun, and Knight. She puts aside her loner ways and begins working closely with former Hotshots firefighter Sam Corbett who is now a watcher and looks out for fires for the Forestry Department. She also meets and takes under wing, a teenage girl named Jazz, who has runaway from a foster home and now  lives in the woods. All this, as she searches for the supernatural force behind the fires—an evil, made witch.

Though not as good as the former book, Wickedly Wonderful I have read in the series, it is still an entertainingly magical read.
