From bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the first in an explosive new trilogy set in the Elder Races world….
Her past is a blank, her future uncertain….
Recovering from a shooting, LAPD witch consultant Sophie Ross leaves her job and travels to the U.K. to search for answers about her childhood. When she encounters a Daoine Sidhe knight of the Dark Court, she becomes entangled in an ancient hatred between two arcane forces.
He has given his body and soul to fight for his people….
Barred from his homeland along with his surviving brother knights, Nikolas Sevigny is embroiled in a conflict that threatens everything he holds dear. Only by uniting his people’s resources can they hope to prevail against Isabeau, the deadly Queen of the Light Court. He will do anything and use anyone to return home to Lyonesse.
When Nikolas encounters Sophie, he sees a tool to be used. The insouciant witch might be the key to unlocking every passageway that has been barred to the knights of the Dark Court, even as a fascination for her takes root in what’s left of his soul.
Sophie has no intention of becoming anyone’s pawn, yet the fierce Nikolas is so compelling, she can’t deny the temptation that endangers her guarded heart.
As magic threatens Lyonesse, Queen Isabeau unleashes her merciless Hounds, and Nikolas and Sophie become embroiled in a race for survival. Meanwhile, the passion that ignites between them burns too hot to be denied and quickly turns into obsession.
Thank goodness they both know better than to fall in love…
OMG I loved this book and literally snickered my way through it. Sophie was hilarious. She kept telling Nikolas that he wasn't the boss of her. Sometimes nicely sometimes not. Even though Nikolas has lived a long time he wasn't as much of an autocratic ass as he could have been. Because Sophie actually tickled him at times lol.
This book was an action packed adrenaline rush from beginning to end. And the chemistry between Nikolas and Sophie was blistering from the start. I loved the rest of Nikolas's men and am hopeful that they all get their stories. Even though this is set in the same world as her Elder Race series this one can be read without any issues if you've not read those. But if you haven't why not? They are fantastic. I was given this book by the author and I give it 5 stars. And you can but this one with the link below.
