If he doesn’t break the curse tying him and his brothers to the Crown of England as paranormal terrorist hunters, they’ll be forced to execute him.

An accidental demon possession erodes Shane Lanzo’s sanity. Sometimes he’s in control. Sometimes not. His only hope is the witch who cast the curse, which is a problem. The last two times he approached her, the feisty enchantress somehow tamed the demon inside him, but rendered him useless against his desire for her.

Madeline Edney sucks at being a witch. Her casting the curse on the lycan brothers was a fluke, and it destroyed her life. She’s been hunted by the Crown ever since to make sure she doesn’t try to undo the curse. She never expected Shane to find her so easily. He’s a temptation that promises zinger chemistry, her absolute weakness. One taste was gratifying. Two was foolish. Three has become an addiction. Lifting the curse requires she forfeit her life, but if the hunters kill her, it leaves Shane at the mercy of the Crown. Either way she dies.

Shane has a choice: freedom for his family, risking Madeline in the process or a chance at happiness with the witch who fated his brothers as prisoners for eternity.

Zoe Forward has done it again! What a book! So much drama, so much banter, so much action. What a fun ride. From start to finish, this one hits all the spots.

I've really enjoyed the works from this author to date. Some people just have a knack for writing an entertaining story, and this author is one of those. The characters she creates are both enduring and so believable I find myself dreaming about them at night. Very tangible. Zoe makes me want to jump right into her world and swim away.

What a steamy couple! Shane and Madeline are two dynamic people. They play off each other, sometimes in darker ways, adding to the overall arc of this action-adventure. I loved it, can't wait to read more in the series!
