Sara Graham has no idea what she is getting herself into when she uses her forbidden art to protect the near-extinct elephants and their habitat in the Knysna forest, South Africa. From the minute she sets foot in the woodcutters’ bar, she endangers her life. The gift hunters who would kill for her art are not the only threat. The wood smugglers will sooner murder her than let the National Parks Board ranger stand in their way. Falling for woodcutter and ex-convict, Wayne West, only further complicates matters. Can Sara trust a man convicted of the cruelest of murders?

Danger comes to town with a green SANParks vest and a tight body. Wayne knows Sara is all kinds of trouble from the first time he lays eyes on her in the bar. Alone, she doesn't stand a chance. If he protects her, he will not only be branded as a traitor with the woodcutters, but he may also lose his job, and worse, his land. That is to say if they make it out alive. Even then, can he forgive her for taking the only thing he has left?

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.

Now that we got to book number seven in the Forbidden Arts series (if you've read the previous books) we kind of know what to expect, however, this doesn't make the book any less exciting.

This time we travel to South Africa, where the sweet Sara uses her gift to protect animals and its habitats. Her life changes when she meets sexy and mysterious Wayne West. A man with a dark past, an ex-convicted with a rough personality but a good heart once you get to know him. As usual, the relationship is full of tension at first especially because Sara's work goes against Wayne land. A serious of episodes with a group of bad guys will make them closer and Wayne's desire to protect her will grow strong.

The writer has the ability to always create tridimensional characters who look real and have awesome personalities. Their interaction is awesome and it's easy to get lost in the scenes. The passion is hot!!! I can only say: SEXY! my kindle almost burn due to the heat of some sentences.

There were a few revelations that didn't have the impact I would have expected because I sort of saw them coming. The writing style was as good as always. I cannot wait to read the next book.
