Description from the publisher:
Ancient, eternal, magikal, and in love with a woman immune to his charms. The combination can bring even the strongest druid sorcerer to his knees. Coyle O'Caha, a seven-hundred-year-old, immortal druid sorcerer, has one claim to fame - his experience mentoring fledgling witches. Three years ago, he found his soulmate, Deri Sullivan. With Deri haunting his dreams, he can no longer wait to claim her. He's tired of waiting for her to fall for his charms and see that he's the man for her. Of course, that's easier said than done since Deri is immune to both his charm and magik.
Deri Sullivan's boss is a real piece of work. Not only is Coyle a millionaire with a body to die for and an attitude to match, but he also has a Scottish lilt which makes her knees weak. He's a certified ladies' man. A man she should avoid at all costs. A man she can't seem to quit dreaming about. A man with whom she wishes she could share her secret. Sometimes love happens at its own pace, other times, a supernatural nudge is needed.
WARNING: This book contains hot, explicit sex and violence explained with contemporary, graphic language.
This is the first book in the Druid series. Each is said to stand on its own, but I always recommend reading a series in the order released.
I absolutely loved this story (as I do all of the stories I have read from Mandy M. Roth). It was fun to “watch” Coyle and Deri lusting for each other and allowing their secrets to hold them back from acting on their desires, until a little meddling helps them out.
Perfectly executed with hot sex, giggles, and macho posturing. There is also a wicked, wizardly, whiny weenie and family theatrics that will had me putting different names to some of the characters (sorry Aunt_____ - nope causing that real-life drama).
I’m hoping I get to read book two very soon!
Grammar/editing: A – near perfect
