"Hot and Steamy! A Can't Miss Fantasy Read!"

Anyone passing this book up will definitely miss a great read. Mortianna is the queen of the witches and she is morning over the death of her daughter Bliss. Mortianna holds Sinjinn responsible for her daughter's death although Bliss didn't die by Sinjin's hands. Mortianna still blames Sinjinn for having been the one to turn Bliss into a revenant thereby giving her immortality via the vampires kiss. For this reason Moritanna hates Damien St. James aka Sinjin.

While in mourning, Mortianna sends for her son Quinn. Quinn is the son that Mortianna sent away when he was a baby because he was a boy, which was something she had no use for. Because of his Wiccan beliefs, Quinn turns his mother down which she sees as a betrayal.

Due to her hate of Sinjinn, she orders minions to kidnap him. These minions are not all that smart.... Not only did they bring back the wrong person, but they didn't even get the person's sex right. They brought back a woman revenant, Maeve, not an elder male vampire. Once Mortianna realizes what happened she orders her minions to kill Maeve. Because of his beliefs, Quinn can not allow Mortianna to kill this woman; so he decides to save her.

Once Quinn saves Maeve he sets out to take her back to Sinjinn's home where she had been staying (or being kept prisoner depending on whose point of view you take) but Maeve has plans of her own. Maeve is seeking to take revenge on the elder that not only was responsible for making her a revenant but for the death of her twin sister. What both Quinn and Maeve didn't count on is the growing attraction and sexual tension between them. An attraction that both of them fight for their own private reasons.

Once they get back, they find Sinjinn in a trance. Not only that but Mortianna is on her way to take her revenge on Sijinn for her daughter's death and on Quinn for his betrayal. How does Maeve's plans for revenge affect the situation with Mortianna and will she actually turn against her friends to achieve this revenge? What will happen to the others in the house? Will Mortianna succeed in her plans to destroy Sinjinn and if she does who else will also have to pay the price? Will Maeve lose Quinn over her need for revenge on the elder vampire? What other hidden agenda's are there?

There are many more things going on than what I have revealed in this review. Things that make this book not only hot and steamy but a definite can't miss read.

In her search for revenge, Maeve finds herself trapped in a world of magic and deception. With her twin sister dead, Maeve seeks justice for her murder. She’s discovered the key that will guarantee her success—a magical spell to control a vampire. Now she needs to locate a witch of pure intent to teach the spell to her.

Quinn Montgomery wants nothing to do with his High Witch mother, Mortianna. Denounced at birth, Quinn was only summoned to her side upon the death of his half-sister. When he discovers the beautiful Maeve a prisoner in his mother’s house, he refuses to allow his mother’s plans to kill her and instead he rescues the prickly immortal from imminent death.

Maeve and Quinn reluctantly band together to battle the forces of darkness as they fight their growing attraction for each other.
