This Urban Seduction short novel is a thrilling action packed and erotic read.  Amber Sinclair literally crashes into sexiest man she’s ever met. Zerachiel Garrett is a wizard on a mission to retrieve the ancient cuff that Amber is delivering. The simple task soon escalates to a dangerous one when others come after the cuff and Ze kidnaps Amber to keep her safe and introduces her to a underground world of magic and mystery.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of action, magic and erotic passion.  The author uses well written words and details that inspire vivid images that capture the imagination and the strong compelling characters are easily understood and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning and keep it throughout.

The story starts off with a bang and keeps on going and there is no chance for boredom as Ze and Amber race across town avoiding magical attacks to stay one step ahead of the other guys. The chemistry between Amber and Ze explodes from the pages and the frequent sex scenes including anal sex and PDAs scorch the reader with their fiery passion.  The relationship between the two progresses at a very fast pace and during some explosive action, but the author conveys it all with vibrant intensity that makes it completely believable. The couple’s personalities seem mesh well and you just know they belong together.

The author has created a fascinating world of magic and captivating characters that draw the reader in and has them wanting more. The concept is certainly intriguing and has lots of possibilities and I was totally enchanted from the beginning and I can’t wait to read the next one.
