Esmerelda Payne is a good witch gone bad, and that’s the way she likes it. But there are consequences to every dark deed, and Esme’s comes in the form of the Witchfinder, who’s been hunting her for more than two hundred years. Nicodemus Frost is as cold as his name—except in her fantasies, where he’s hotter than Hades.

Frost has every intention of killing Esme for a grievous sin committed in her past life. But not until he gets what he wants in the here and now. He uses a spell to bend Esme to his will, make her crave his touch, his body. She’ll do anything he asks—and Frost will do the same, because the spell works both ways.

Now they’re equally consumed by lustful need…which makes it hard to notice common enemies approaching.

The witching hour is a seriously sexy time of the day when Nicodemus Frost is on the hunt!

Esmerelda Payne is basically a good witch, but things haven’t gone so well for her and now, after a roll of serious misdemeanours she’s on the run. Trouble is, one seriously sexy Witchfinder, Nicodemus Frost, is after her in more ways than one.

Of course spells abound, one in particular that makes Esme ravished with lust for Nicodemus, trouble is, the spell works in a mutal way, making him as drawn to her as she is to him. He’s supposed to kill her, instead he wants to get inside her, and it seems, she isn’t going to be complaining about that.

This story ticks along in a magical way, there’s lot of information to take on board about this fantasy world but once you’ve got that you can get to know the characters. Esme wasn’t as likeable at the beginning as I usually would expect in an erotic romance, but it’s nice to have something a little different for a change, though I have to say I thought Nicodemus was hot – and that name, I swear, I’m giving it to my first born, love it!

The tension and sexual chemistry between the couple is executed with competance by the author and there were a few really nice lines that I reread. The sex was hot and with an undercurrent of other emotions and factors rolling beneath the surface this added to the moment.

If you like witch fantasy, and a plot line that is more than just the H/H relationship then this might be a book for you.
