"A very hot, magical tale of three witches combining forces against evil."

A year ago, Alec attempted to save Sky from Jaimis, a rogue witch, but they were both captured and tortured. They have both spent the last year healing themselves in body, but neither has been able to heal their magic. Zach is assigned to guard Sky when she comes back to the US to join Sorren's fight against Jaimis. Alec is thrown back into the mix when he is sent to rescue them after Jaimis' dark lords catch up with them.

Zach's strongest power is the Sight, which has shown him that the three of them must stay together and combine their power in order to survive the next attack. They know from previous experience with Lena and Matt (from the first book of the series) that this can be done in a ménage. Their attempt is successful and they are now strongly linked to one another. Sky's magic is still not repaired, but it is better and she has gained Zach's skill for Sight and Alec's skill for the concealing spell; and Alec's magic is repaired. Their linking doesn't come a minute too soon, as the next attack is just around the corner.

Broken Pentacle is the second book of the Nature's Pentacle series. This book is just as good, if not a little better than the first; and it can be read as a stand-alone. My main complaint was that it was just a bit predictable, because there were so many similarities with the first book. We have two witches who have been hurt and are reluctant to trust and love. One of those witches has a previous lover, with whom they are still very close. That witch brings them together, balances them, and gets them through the rough patches with humor, tough love and understanding. That did not take away from the fact that this is an imaginative story with complex characters and plot, and even more complex and intriguing relationships. I love the personalities that Eden Rivers has given her witches. Ms. Rivers' spin on witches and their sexualities and abilities is very interesting and I enjoyed reading about them. I look forward to reading the third book in the series. I am sure that it will be just as fun to read; and I am hoping that the next ménage of witches may have a different set of circumstances and experiences.

After a year spent recuperating from a rogue witch's attack, Sky agrees to draw Jaimis -- her former lover, torturer, and rapist -- out of hiding, determined to discover the identity of his followers before they subject others to the hell she suffered. With her magic shattered from the trauma, she needs to rediscover her sensual nature before she reclaims her gifts. Hesitant to trust, she didn't plan on bonding with one witch, let alone two. But if premonitions prove true, the key to healing and survival lies within a scorching ménage.

Alec blames himself for failing to protect Sky when the rogue witch left them close to death, and he'll do anything to see Jaimis dead. During interludes when they're not scrambling to stay one step ahead of death spells or human thugs, Alec strives to reawaken Sky's sexual nature, eager to help mend her broken magic. He entices her into sexy baths, making love under the pines, and erotic desserts in which he coats her with honey and fruit. But when Sky and Zach, their bodyguard and Alec's former lover, turn the tables and put Alec on the menu, he's ill equipped to let his guard down and accept their tantalizing ministrations.

As Alec struggles to overcome the violence and loss in his past, his deepening bond with Sky and renewed affection for Zach pull him into a web of conflicting loyalties and attachments. And yet to survive what lies ahead, the three of them must pull together in a tangle of bodies, hearts, and magic, combining power and passion.
