This is book 2 of the Elemental Magic series, heavy on suspense, action, and conflict. Diamonds are a powerful motivator for violence, betrayal…and the resulting distrust.

It’s easy to relate to both Leannan and Gabe—their conflict is believable, and so is their attraction.

Brynna Curry brings yet another likeable couple together, paints a vivid setting of rural Alabama, and closes a chapter of the ancient 3-part curse her series is based on.
