“The Magical Enforcement Agency keeps dirty magic off the streets, but there’s a new blend out there that’s as deadly as it is elusive. When patrol cop Kate Prospero shoots the lead snitch in this crucial case, she’s brought in to explain herself. But the more she learns about the investigation, the more she realizes she must secure a spot on the MEA task force.

Especially when she discovers that their lead suspect is the man she walked away from ten years earlier – on the same day she swore she’d given up dirty magic for good. Kate Prospero’s about to learn the hard way that crossing a wizard will always get you burned, and that when it comes to magic, you should never say never.”

Review: Blue-Blooded Vamp by Jaye Wells

Blue-Blooded-VampThis book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I’m always sad to see a series come to a close. Over the course of time, I get to know the characters and take pleasure in walking their world with them. While I can certainly re-read the series, it isn’t the same as exploring it for the first time. Jaye Wells concludes her Sabina Kane story with Blue-Blooded Vamp, a novel full of action and peril.

(Description nicked from B&N.com.)

“Sabina Kane is on the hunt. Her prey: Cain, the father of the vampire race and the one who murdered her family and her friends. Unfortunately, Cain is hunting Sabina, too.

The one man who holds the key to defeating Cain is, of course, Abel. A mage with secrets to spare and, hopefully, the power to match it. Unfortunately, for Sabina, he’s in Rome and may not want to be found.

Sabina sets out for Italy with her friends, Giguhl and Adam Lazarus, to track down the only man who can get her the revenge she hungers for. But will he help her or oppose her? And just who is Abel, really? Worst of all, when Sabina figures out the goddess Lilith has a plan for her-she realizes this trip is getting deadlier by the minute. As they say: when in Rome-SURVIVE.”

Review: Silver-Tongued Devil by Jaye Wells

Silver-Tongued-DevilThis book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

There’s a heck of a lot of paranormal fantasy out there, as you’re no doubt aware. More and more crop up every week as the genre gets more and more crowded. While I’m open to reading just about anything, it takes something unusual to keep me reading beyond book one. JayeWells’sSabina Kane novels attracted me early on, and Silver-Tongued Devil is just as good as the series’s first book.

(Description nicked from B&N.com.)

“Now that the threat of war has passed, Sabina Kane is ready to focus on the future. Her relationship with Adam Lazarus is getting stronger and she’s helping her sister, Maisie, overcome the trauma of her captivity in New Orleans. Even Giguhl is managing to stay out of trouble thanks to the arrival of Pussy Willow and his new roller derby team. But as much as Sabina wants to feel hopeful about the future, part of her doesn’t believe that peace is possible.

Her suspicions are confirmed when a string of sadistic murders threatens to stall treaty negotiations between the mages and the vampires. Sabina pitches in to find the killer, but her investigation soon leads her down dark paths that have her questioning everyone she thought she could trust. And the closer she gets to the killer, the more Sabina begins to suspect this is one foe she may not be able to kill.”
