Josh is a confirmed bachelor, a Mage who likes playing the field within the magical community. Now he and his coworkers have a bounty on their heads after destroying a grimoire that reeked of dark magic. It’s the last time he should want to get seriously involved with anyone.
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.
Yet despite Josh’s promises to himself and Kate’s professional dedication, the magnetism between them only grows as threats both magical and mundane threaten to rip them apart.
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. 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.

About Elizabeth Lapthorne:
Elizabeth Lapthorne is the eldest of four children. She grew up with lots of noise, fights and tale-telling. Her mother, a reporter and book reviewer, instilled in her a great appreciation of reading with the intrigues of a good plot.
Elizabeth studied Science at school, and whilst between jobs complained bitterly to a good friend about the lack of current literature to pass away the hours. While they both were looking up websites for new publishers, she stumbled onto Ellora’s Cave. Jumping head-first into this doubly new site (both the first e-book site she had ever visited, as well as her first taste of Romantica) they both devoured over half of EC’s titles in less than a month. While waiting for more titles to be printed (as well as that ever-elusive science job) Elizabeth started dabbling again in her writing.
Elizabeth has always loved to read, it will always be her favourite pass-time, (she is constantly buying new books and bookshelves to fill), but she also loves going to the beach, sitting in the sun, having coffee (or better yet, CHOCOLATE and coffee) with her friends and generally enjoying life. She is extremely curious, which is why she studied science, and often tells “interesting” stories, loving a good laugh. She is a self-confessed email junkie, loving to read what other people on the EC board think and have to say, she laughs often at their tales and ideas. She recently has developed a taste for the gym. She’s sure she read somewhere it was good for her, but she is reserving judgment to see how long it lasts. J
