Historical Paranormal Erotica
Rating: 4 Cups
Raven Drake is one of the most powerful Magickers in the world and is engaged to another as powerful. Gareth is a very busy man who has ignored her for months at a time and seems to forget about her.
Malcolm, Lord Preston, is a noble with a shady past and sympathies for the Magickers. His affair with Raven was supposed to be only that, but who would guess that he is capable of love?
The Witch Hunters are regaining their prominence and hunting down those with supernatural powers. There are, however, some very powerful Magickers who are trying to ensure their rights in Parliament, if they survive long enough to do so. Raven and Gareth are engaged, and their marriage will combine the two most powerful lines. Unfortunately Raven has fallen in love with Lord Preston, and though she is willing to do her duty, her heart belongs elsewhere.
I really enjoyed this story, a historical romance with a paranormal twist. Raven and Malcolm are very intense characters with a strong sexual chemistry. This makes the love scenes sizzlers. Gareth’s arrival on the scene intensifies everything and combined with the Witch Hunters’ attacks, the suspense and tension kept me on the edge of my seat. The characters are vividly drawn. and the plot is very well crafted. I loved her twist on Victorian England. This is the start of an extremely promising new series, and I am going to buy and read every single one of them.
