Yet he finds himself irresistibly drawn to Kate, a sensually appealing warrior who is tasked with protecting him—and cannot allow herself to become personally involved with her charges.

Someone is a little upset that a dark grimoire was destroyed by Josh and his co-workers and now deadly forces are determined to get what they can from him in this thrilling romance.  Kate is a Guardian dedicated to protecting him, but the playboy Mage finds himself irresistibly drawn to Kate and the magnetism between them only grows even as the threats threaten to tear them apart.

This fast paced and exciting plot keeps readers on their toes with action, suspense and romance. The well orchestrated suspense and drama draw the reader deeper into the story with believable action scenes and well written details that capture the imagination. The charming characters are easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.

The attraction between Josh and Kate blazes from the pages with fiery passion and frequent scorching hot sex scenes including some anal play. The reader can’t help but get caught up in their story as they try to keep their relationship from interfering in Kate’s job, yeah not so easy for these two.

Lots of suspense and drama with some surprises keep the readers on their toes as the captivating characters try to stay one step ahead of the killers and find the mastermind. Of course some of the situation has been resolved but this case is far from over and I will have to wait to read the next book.
