Can she destroy him?
Tough and invincible Maya Martin is part of Cain Jones' paranormal crime taskforce. Her ability to manipulate water makes the South African born hydromancist an invaluable asset to the team. When AK47's are smuggled from Mexico to Zimbabwe via Costa Rica, Maya is sent on a mission to destroy the arms and expose the syndicate. Her main suspect is the new Australian ambassador, Timothy Fardel, but the dark side of his personality is not the hidden truth Maya expected. Neither are the emotions that get in the way. Faced with honoring her oath or following her heart, Maya has to make the most difficult choice of her life.
South African born Charmaine Pauls is a gypsy at heart who likes to look at the world from the lens of her camera. She writes dark and paranormal romance novels. The author currently resides in Chile with her husband and children.
'Hydromancist', fourth book in the Seven Forbidden Arts is all about Maya. The sexy and deathly South African beauty is now the main character in a fast and entertaining story. Set in Costa Rica, the story has beautiful scenarios which are perfect for a woman who can manipulate water. Reading about Maya and her power is exciting, you can feel the molecules of her body changing when she is in control and the writing makes is real and palpable.
Maya has been present in all the books but now we get to know her better. We learn about her past, her childhood and her old wounds. We discovered a strong woman with a vulnerable side hidden under thick walls. We witness her internal battle when feelings and duty are in opposite sides of the table and we suffer when her life is in danger.
Tim, the sexy Australian ambassador, is an intriguing character, he is very cryptic and his behavior has all of us in the dark. He wants Maya with the force of a tornado but still doesn't want to give her what she desires. Once we learn why is that everything makes sense.
As you imagine, this book has an important sexual component. Passion and desire are part of the story and make it the great book it is. The paranormal element is also great, this book adds new players to the big game and it gets better and better.
The author keeps writing excellent books about extraordinary people. Each one can be read as a stand alone but is better if you read all of them.
