Jewel’s third paranormal (after 2009’s My Forbidden Desire) is an exciting return to a world of demons and mages. Evil mage Christophe dit Menart kidnapped Grayson Spencer; she stole some of his magic and escaped, determined to use her new powers for revenge. Supersexy demon Durian, an assassin for demon warlord Nikodemus, is bound to protect all mages in his territory, even though he despises Christophe. Durian offers to train Gray in magecraft if she’ll give up her plan to attack Christophe, but it becomes clear that Christophe will stop at nothing to regain his magic and Gray, while Durian and Gray forge an intense magical and emotional bond. The different hierarchies and unions of mage, human, and demon may confuse newcomers, but the overall story and rip-roaring pace will keep them engaged. (Jan.)
