Gray is a hardened magical skeptic who, six years ago, exposed Fanny's husband as a fraud. Fanny doesn't want to believe in magic, either, but it won't quit believing in her.
The interplay between these two made for a fun story. I read it quickly, and enjoyed the ride. Additionally, I didn't manage to predict how the mystery would play out, and it did so in a very satisfying way. (I don't often have those "Ohhhh..." moments in romance novels with mystery subplots.)
I was hoping that magic would play a slightly stronger role in this story, though I kind of see why it didn't.
I wasn't whole-heartedly into the romance because it felt like they slid a little too abruptly from arguing to embracing. This is one of those books that has mystical physical lust overriding all, and I need a deeper connection. I even think it could have been done, despite the initial enmity between these two.
All in all, I would recommend this for those who like a dash of the paranormal in their romance.www.christineamsden.com
