about

In Stacey Kennedy’s steamy paranormal romance novel, a rookie guardian sworn to combat the undead risks life and love in a world of violence, witchcraft, and seduction.
 
Trained as an Elite Guardian and witch, Nexi Jones has lost her family and she’s hell-bent on making sure she doesn’t lose anyone else. At least she has Kyden, her smoldering hot partner who’s been there for her every step of the way. But just as Nexi thinks she’s done mourning, tragedy strikes the Otherworld when a fellow guardian is murdered by a group of rogue vampires. Drawn into their dangerous games, she and Kyden trek into the Earthworld to hunt down a killer—and Nexi alone will be put to the ultimate test.
 
Although Kyden knows that Nexi must fight her own battles, his guardian instincts are raging as he struggles to keep her close. The ruthlessness of these vampires is like nothing he’s ever seen. And at their helm is the black witch Astoria, a demon with one burning desire: to shed blood in the name of vengeance. What troubles Kyden even more, though, is the warlock lurking in the shadows. Let the devil do his worst . . . all Kyden can do is love and protect Nexi until his last breath.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the variety of characters! 4.5 Stars This is a fantastic paranormal, other world type of book. Witches, warlocks, vampires and werewolves are all a part of this amazing story. This is book two in the Magic & Mayhem series. Nexi and Kyden survived book one and they're on to new adventures. Kyden needs to learn that Nexi is fully capable of handling her job as a witch and a guardian. Nexi needs to learn that Kyden doesn't need saving and when she tries it puts her in greater danger. Meeting Magnus, Lord of the Underworld, is a prime example of that greater danger. Secrets are a bad, bad idea Nexi! I love the variety of characters and how they must work together for the greater good. Great story! I can't wait for the next book in this series. Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.
