Recovering from an accident that almost killed her, Lourdes realizes she must reevaluate her life. She takes a job categorizing books in the vast private library of Alexi Marius, a wealthy, reclusive and sinfully gorgeous man.

Lourdes is soon seduced by her brooding employer. As she and Marius explore their sexual desires, she discovers he’s hiding a secret more dangerous and unbelievable than she ever imagined.

Magic, warfare and love. All different yet they are all entwined. Love can be the cause or the end of war. It can even be what you fight for or to protect. Some say love is magic. For certain there is magic in love. Combine all these elements and you will have a great story to tell.

Alexi Marius comes from another time and place. He vows to live on and guard Earth for the rest of his life. He has led a desolate life for many years. That all ends the day Lourdes shows up on his doorstep answering his ad for someone to work with his books. He cannot deny the instant attraction he feels for her.

Lourdes’ life has just been sent into a whole different direction. An accident that nearly killed her has left her with a limp and a cane. Lourdes can no longer do what she loves and must find something different. She decides to take a chance and go into something she has never done before and answers an ad in a newspaper to categorize a recluse’s books. Alexi is certainly not what Lourdes expected. As soon as she lays eyes on him she feels an instant attraction much too hard to deny.

Both Alexi and Lourdes decide to throw caution to the wind after a short attempt to try and fight the attraction they feel towards each other. All too soon Lourdes realizes that Alexi is hiding something. Alexi must still defend Earth as he and Lourdes enjoy each other. Hiding the truth from her hurts him as it has never done before. Alexi is conflicted and must decide just what he wants.

Is Lourdes’ love enough to help Alexi? Will he finally open up to her and trust her enough to tell her the truth of what he is and why he is here? Can they find their happy ever after before all breaks loose?

Alexi Marius is a great character. Definitely an alpha male, he exudes danger and sex. As much as he is the ultimate warrior he still has a heart even if he does not think so. The care he shows with Lourdes and the child that they see injured proves this. Lourdes is a feisty woman who finds love and is more than willing to fight for it. Once she finds out the truth she will stand by her man’s side no matter what.

Kate Hill writes a wonderful story. She brings the reader into her world and you become lost in the wonderful imagery and dialogue. She creates wonderful characters that are full of depth and emotion. This book keeps you interested until the end. It is a very hot read full of sexual tension and many love scenes. I just loved the scene in the field what a great description of Alexi as he stretched out on the grass. Talk about delicious. If you enjoy brooding males and kick-butt heroines, take a chance on this story and enjoy.
