Urban Fantasy Romance

Release date: December 13, 2012
When a magical presence is detected around a recent string of feline slayings, Libby, an enchantress, is determined to discover who is behind the odd deaths. But being a witch gifted by the Goddess won’t protect her from the talented warlock the Coven sends to assist her. Kale weaves a spell more powerful than any she’s ever seen–and he’s sexy as sin. But why he’s even needed for such a simple mission is beyond her.
While having some muscle around can’t hurt her investigation, fighting her growing attraction for Kale is worse than a hex, especially considering she knows he—and their Coven—are hiding something from her. When she turns up clues that point to something far more sinister than slaughtered cats, though, the elusive warlock isn’t the her only concern. She now has a political rebellion on her hands, too. And when the truth about who she really is begins to surface, the only person Libby can trust is herself.
Such a fun read. Stacey created fabulous characters in this book. They each draw you in for a page turning read. First there is Libby, she’s such a smart ass and gosh I love her, and then there is Kale, the mysterious tempting warlock. There is also the best friend, Peyton. At one point she says to Libby, “Responsibility first.” Peyton snickered. “Sexual fantasies later.” Yes, these girls are fun and they both tug at your heart when they get into trouble.
There is tons of mystery surrounding Kale and the evil brewing in Charleston. It’s incredibly entertaining to watch Libby, in all her sass, rise to the challenge. However, The last thing Libby ever wanted was to have another warlock in her life and now her life may depend on trusting one. When Kale can’t tell Libby the truth he pushes her in a different way and points out, “But your body trusts me, doesn’t it?” Oh, he’s a wicked warlock and I love him too.
The end is completely satisfying and a page turning joy to read. Stacey has weaved a great book here and I’m very much looking forward to the next in this series.
