She’s not immune to his charms…She’s not immune to his charms…
Paranormal detective Kiera “Mac” McLoughlin has a serial killer on her hands. Two women are dead—naked, and no obvious cause of death. Aidan Byrne, an investigator with the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency, confirms her suspicions. He’s hot, enigmatic, and just so damned charming. Almost charming enough to distract Mac…until her female partner becomes the killer’s next victim.
Now Mac’s off the case and sneaking behind her department’s back to pursue the investigation with Aidan—and desperately trying to fight her attraction to him. Each lead is starting to form the same conclusion: incubi, who have been extinct for at least century. But Aidan has a few secrets he’s hiding. And as Mac struggles to keep her libido in check, she wonders if she’s falling for Aidan…or falling for a killer.

Banshee Charmer by Tiffany Allee is labeled as being "from the files of the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency". I took that to mean that this might be the first book of a series. This is an excellent thing! Banshees are not usually charmers, but i... ...more
Banshee Charmer is a short and exciting novel revolving around a spunky half-bansee cop who takes a case very seriously when her partner becomes a victim of a supposed extinct race. Allee takes the reader on a fun ride that has me wanting the next installment!

A charming, sexy murder mystery!
While working her latest case, detective (and half-banshee) Kiera "Mac" McLoughlin is convinced the two murdered victims are the work of a serial killer, an incubus to be exact. The only problem with her theory, incubi have been extinct for years. When her partner... ...more
I think that this is the first book I've ever read which features a Banshee...an otherworlder who can kill with her scream. I liked her as a paranormal creature and I like the world that is being created here. This is an interesting premise for a series and I think eventually it will be... ...more

Promising start to a new Paranormal 'cop' series
I prefer opening my review with my own summary of the storyline but BANSHEE CHARMER's blurb is spot on. So let's jump into what I thought about it shall we?
Since getting burned about eight books into the Anita Blake series I've had a tough time with... ...more
The Banshee Charmer is set in a world where Otherworlders are known about publically and even have representatives on the police force. There is also the OEA (Otherworlder enforcement Agency) to deal with OW issues. The story is centred around Keira “Mac” who is a half-banshee and her unofficial... ...more
Perhaps I would not have picked up this book, paranormal is not my type most of the time. But put in a mystery as well and viola! I love any and all kinds of mystery/ thriller. So I’m really glad that I picked it up.
Thanks to my Kindle, I could check out in the dictionary, all the numerous types... ...more
I loved the tone of this novella--a mix of a police procedural and an urban fantasy. It was amazing how much you were able to follow along without needing an info-dump for world-building purposes. The author introduced a new piece of the world and you just nodded and accepted it.
While this wasn't... ...more
I was sucked into this fast paced thriller immediately. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it in one sitting.
It's a quick read that will make you want more.
There's mystery, romantic tension, drama and character.
I can't wait to see more of this world. ...more

This book was not what I expected but in a really good way. The plot interweaves between informing you about these new or sometimes familiar creatures or half humans and the rest is dedicated to a good old fashioned serial killer/murder mystery. I particularly liked that it was about a Banshee, t... ...more
This book has been honestly sitting on my TBR list for months. When Tiffany’s second book came up on Bewitching Book Tours recently, it was just the push I needed to pick up this book. Looking back, I wish I had picked it up sooner!

I've read many paranormal stories, but this was the first time I've read about a Banshee! That part intrigued me as much as did the synopsis of the story!

Snarky, engaging, and clever.
What a fun introduction to this series. Mz. Allee has a great way of drawing you into the procedural process, but not losing you in the specifics. She gives you just enough information for authenticity and keeps the storytelling moving forward.
