His perfect match or the woman destined to steal his soul?
Graelen Scott has lived his entire life under the shadow of a prophecy–a curse that gave him unlimited power guaranteed to seduce him to an early grave. When a Tarot historian shows up with stolen family cards and a theory of balance, all hell breaks loose. But his insatiable lust for the blue-eyed beauty clouds his judgment, making it difficult for him to separate fact from fiction.
Determined to understand the secrets that have plagued her for months, Rena Gallagher lands on Graelen's doorstep in search of answers. When fantasy becomes reality and a remarkable power sparks between them, a deep craving to surrender to his raw sexuality is revealed.
Now Graelen and Rena must race to uncover the clues that will break the curse before the seductive magick can consume he and his brothers. And before the darkness drives the woman he needs away for good.
Warning: This book contains a hot demanding alpha who enjoys the wild and unexpected and will go to any length to satisfy his woman, including magick water sex and psychic voyeurism.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Way too short but the story was just as engaging as the smut!
Graelen Scott is powerful male witch who has lived a solitary life away from his brothers, due to a dark curse plaguing his family. When a mysterious historian, Rena, shows up at his home claiming to have the means to ending the family curse, something sought after by his family for decades, Graelen is reluctant to believe her. He feels an immense attraction to Rena after just a few minutes of being in her presence and when they accidentally touch, Gaelen knows this woman could be his impending doom but is hell-bent on having her!
This is a fast-paced novella with action, suspense, steamy romance and elemental magic that keeps your attention from chapter one to the very last page! Rena is a fun heroine who I think lacked a little more character development for me to fully connect with but was still enjoyable. Gaelen on the other hand, is a sexy and powerful witch whose animal magnetism is hard to resist. While he starts off as an arrogant jerk, he more than makes up for it in his affection towards Rena. Just when you think you’re smitten with Gaelen, in walks in the dark twin, Cash. His character is so intriguing you’ll wish he made an earlier appearance! Without giving away too much, I wouldn’t mind being in the middle of those two twins!
I must admit I usually read this type of short story for the smut factor and not for the storyline, but UNTAMED MAGICK’s characters and world add a substance that becomes the main focus while reading with the sex being an added bonus. Is the sex hot and steamy? Of course, but the story will have you flipping the pages in anticipation. I could almost kill the author for the ending cliffhanger but will be reading the next installment as soon as possible to get my questions answered!
