A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...
Wanting her was one thing. Keeping her was another...
Serenity Danssaert was already in way over her head. Not even her MI6 training or her powers as one of the seven Pleiades witches is going to save her sister. Then Alexi Jovec shows up. A secret operative working for unknown forces, he's impossibly sexy and dangerous...and the guy who bailed on Serenity after a red-hot, racy night.
So bonding to him as her destined--the One--is so very wrong.
While Alexi's need to own Serenity--body, soul, and beyond--is nearly unbearable, it's also forbidden. He's the last man who could ever be her destined. Besides, Hades's right-hand man cannot bond with a chosen Pleiades witch. He may be the one man who can protect her, but she can never be his to keep.
Serenity is desperate for save her sister, but a sexy dangerous secret agent doesn't make things any easier. When we first encounter these two we discover they shared passion (and a bed) in the past but he walked out on her and left her alone. Now he is the only one who can help her to find her sister and save her life.
The book is a mix of action, passion, and intrigue. The chemistry between the two main characters is off the charts. It's clear they are attracted to each other but given that she is a witch and he is Hades's right-hand, things for them are not easy. The tension is always present, the fire is palpable and of course when they finally get down to business is HOT.
I liked that the book is part of a bigger universe so we get to see characters we already know from the previous book. The mythology is well used and the plot is solid. I really enjoy some twist and revelations, they were quite shocking.
As all Zoe's books this one is well written, the passing is fast and the scenes have a natural transition. I cannot wait to read the next one in the series.
