To find her destiny, she must trust him with her life...and her heart.
Jackson Holt makes a decent living as a private investigator in New Orleans, home of one of the largest underground supernatural populations in the United States. He and his partners have never met a case they couldn't crack...until a local bar owner asks him to do a little digging on her newest hire.
New Orleans is the fourth destination in as many months for Mackenzie Brooks, a woman on the run from a deranged stalker. After all, any man who shows up on her doorstep claiming to be her destined lover has more than a few screws loose. But crazy doesn't explain why he always finds her no matter how far she runs.
When her well-meaning boss puts a PI on her case, Mackenzie comes face to face with the incredible truth: magic is real, and whatever spell has kept her hidden and separate from the paranormal world is rapidly deteriorating.
With time running out, she has no choice but to trust Jackson as he struggles to uncover the truth of her past-and her destiny.
I loved Ms. Rogers’ Sanctuary series and I knew I’d love this new series. I just didn’t know how much. I absolutely adored the world-building (who would’ve thought—shapeshifters, witches, spell-casters, psychics...but no vampires), and the initial cast of characters, who I have on good authority will continue appearing in future books, made me literally itch for more.
Wonderful pacing, great plot and suspense, amazing characters (the heroine didn’t annoy me, the hero made me drool, their friends and co-workers were wonderfully “painted”), great tension, wonderful chemistry, hot sex...I loved it from beginning to end.
