This is the first book in the Light Warriors series by Patti O'Shea.
Ryne is a magical troubleshooter, sworn to protect the innocent
from being harmed by magic—and she's been chasing Anise, her former
mentor, for six years.
Deke is a private
investigator who knows something key to defeating Anise. But Anise cast
a dark spell over him, and even though Ryne has managed to temporarily
lift the curse, Deke can't remember what it is that he knows.
Ryne has sworn to never get involved with a human, but Deke is sexy,
charming, brave and irresistible—and as Ryne and Deke are pulled
further into Anise's evil schemes, it's harder and harder for Ryne to
resist the attraction.
But dark magic has its
own attraction, and in order to defeat Anise and lift Deke's curse
permanently, Ryne will have to risk following in Anise's footsteps and
succumbing to the lure of the darkness...
I really enjoyed this book.
Ryne is very focused on her work - takes pride in her ability to keep Humans safe and herself from crossing over to the dark side of magic.
Deke is full of sexual banter. He fights his attraction to Ryne and his fear of the curse placed upon him.Together they work toward a common goal - defeating Anise and breaking the curse. But sometimes things happen that aren't planned - like love.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and have the next one in the series on the TBR.
