Two years ago, Petra Brandt faked her death and broke her fiancé’s heart to save her brother. While she never stopped loving him, she accepted her new life as a mercenary. At least, until the day she learns Will’s life is in danger. Blackmailing a few people along the way to help her, Petra devises a plan to free her former love and save his life.

After a rogue first-born kills his fiancée with elemental fire, Dr. William Evans dedicates his life to ridding the world of magic. What he didn’t expect was to develop his own magical ability and become a research subject himself. A strange man offers him a deal for his freedom, and Will takes it. However, his choice reconnects him with the woman he believed to be dead.

Will and Petra must work together to survive. But can they overcome their past full of lies, secrets, and betrayals? Or will their love only remain a distant memory?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flare of Promise In order to save her brother, Petra Brandt faked her death and broke her fiancé’s heart, but now it’s his life in danger so resorting to a little blackmail, Petra devises a plan to free her former love and save his life in this spellbinding paranormal romance. After his fiancé’s death, Dr. William Evans dedicated his life to ridding the world of magic and the readers can’t help but get caught up in all the thrills and magic as Petra and Will are reconnected while exposing a horrible secret. Petra and Will have some stunning chemistry which certainly heats things up but of course their past stirs up some emotional turmoil while chuckles and snark lighten things up during the adrenaline pumping excitement as Petra and Will work with some “frienmies” against the magical prison. The characters are strong, compelling and keeps reader’s attention glued to the pages of this well written, fast paced and smooth flowing plot full of suspense, excitement and romance. This series just continues to get better and better with so many fascinating twists and elements that there is never any way to put the stories down once you start reading them and I find it very easy to get caught up in all the intrigue and with all the directions that the plot could go in, I can never predict what might happen next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully Unique Series I love all of Jessie Donovan’s work and this story is no different. She has a very unique storyline with this series and I couldn’t enjoy it more. I love the way the story has a unique take on magical powers and how the characters deal with those powers. I hope there will be more stories in this series as I want to find out how the series will end and if some of the characters will meet their matches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flare of Promise What a rush! Donovan puts pen to paper creating an unforgettable tale that had me on the edge of my seat throughout. Vivid and larger than life descriptions heighten the intensity of an already creatively inspired novel. The well thought out plot kept me guessing while taking me on a wild ride that wasn’t simply action intensive, but also emotionally revealing. I liked the well-developed differentiation between talents, first borns, and latent magic users. The myths and legends that are coming into play are also quite intriguing. That said, this series really should be read in order for context. The thorough world and And let’s not forget the best part of this novel: characters that you can fall in love with. The little imperfections that Donovan works into her hero and heroine make them even more endearing. Their relationship was both complex and so very easy. Readers can see how they fit together, but also feel for the difficulties that they face. Surrounded by a supporting cast that will both make you laugh and groan in frustration, Donovan has created a group of individuals that I desperately want to become a part of. Donovan’s return to magic and mayhem, action and suspense had me in its hooks throughout. This quick, exciting read was a fantastic addition to a series that I can’t get off of my mind. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
