Description

A POWER TO KILL FBI agent Camellia "Mel" Wray is no stranger to violence but when an old friend is brutally murdered, she takes it personally. The case hits even closer to her heart when the best person to help with the investigation is Dr. Stefan Harper, the only man she ever loved-and lost. One look at the gorgeous medical expert and Mel realizes he's still impossible to resist-and still harboring a secret after all these years . . . A POWER TO LOVE Afraid Mel wouldn't accept him, Stefan never revealed his study of magical medicine or his abilities, instead allowing her to believe he'd been unfaithful. Now she's back in his life-and their mutual attraction burns hotter than ever. But when something dark and otherworldly threatens humans, Stefan must summon his mage powers to keep everyone safe. Will Mel be able to trust him again? Or will their love cost him even more than it did the first time? Word Count: 90,000 words.show more

Our customer reviews

Could not put this book down until I had finished it. I really enjoyed returning to the world of Wayfarer & its Mages, demons and townies! The focus was certainly more away from the Collegium in the first three quarters of the book, and I have to admit I missed the concentration of that aspect of Northcott's world-building (just an observation, not a criticism at all). With the more "human" orientated police investigation focus, it felt a little like a romantic suspense but with the paranormal mixed in (a nice deviation & addition along with the paranormal elements). But when Stefan and Mel were taken by the ghouls and the focus became more on the paranormal. I loved the medical references in Northcott's narrative - I'm a volunteer ambulance officer in my community, so the medical knowledge and jargon really engaged and resonated with me. Regardless of the "town/human" focus, I was sucked in again by the characters & their story. I also loved the tug and pull between Stefan & Mel's shared past, the betrayal/hurt/misunderstanding that occurred between them, but particularly Stephan's dilemma as he tries to work out how and what to reveal to Mel about himself and his Mage powers. Northcott's world-building and story arc gave a different angle to the world of her Mages & humans. If you like a bit of intrigue and mystery mixed in with your paranormal action, then give this book a go. The paranormal elements have shades of Pamela Palmer's Feral Warriors series, or Larissa Ione's Daemonica books - where good vs.evil on world wide stage, & where races keep their existence secret from humans. If you like this sort of world-building then you'll enjoy this series.show more
