Until Asia, a zesty beautician walks into his life and wrecks the very law of physics. When Sean and Asia compete for the premises where Sean intends to open his cocktail bar, he pulls out all the stops to wins the challenge … to Asia’s detriment. Together they end up catering for the guests of a drug baron who rented Isla del Pirata for a week-long birthday celebration, and the kingpin has no intention of letting Asia leave. Ever.

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.
'Geomancist' puts the bar higher than any book before it. It's a story about forgiving yourself, finding love and kicking the bad guy ass. OK.. maybe is a bit more than that but let me tell you 'Geomancist' is a hot story that will burn your reader (or your hands).
The story takes place in Cartagena where Sean has been planning to buy a place to open a cocktail bar and fulfill his late sister's dream. Enters Asia, a beautiful Danish woman who wants to open a spa on the same place. Here begins a run for money that will drag both of them to a drug lord's island. Working for dangerous man will change their lives. Juan is the typical cartel guy, he takes notice of Asia in a special way. Long story short (without spoiling anything) their lives will be in danger as they work to uncovered a bigger threat.
Unlike the other book in the series, Sean doesn't work for Cain's team but of course, he makes an apparition and through his classical manipulation he makes and offer Sean cannot refuse. The other characters also appear on the book wich is great because I love to read what happened in their lives.
Sean is a Geomancist (he can manipulate the Earth) but his power is dormant so at first the paranormal element is no so present in the story. He is a sexy Scottish man, I have a thing for the Highlands so Sean is perfect for me. Asia is a strong and brave woman and some of the things she had to endure were too much but she never gave up. Juan is a sexual sadist... he is too evil and I couldn't have hated him more.
Sean and Asia are perfect together, their relationship is raw, primal and addictive. The sex scenes were off the chart, the fire was consuming and the trust they have each on other brings us scenes that are recorded in our brains forever. Sean is dominant in bed but still puts her pleasure first. I never read sex scenes with so much love and passion at the same time.
Anyway, I absolutely loved Geomancist. Charmaine is an incredible storyteller with a gift to create complex characters with sexy stories. I can't wait to read more about them.
