Description from the publisher:
Jade had spent the majority of her life running from the Triad.  The Triad, are a powerful group, who would stop at nothing to obtain Jade and the missing spell book for leader, Lorenzo’s, nefarious plans.  And now that she has absorbed the highly coveted magic contained inside the missing book, there is nowhere left for her to hide. 
With the help of her friends, Jade steps out from the shadows and learns how to fight back.  But no one is prepared for Elinor-the woman bound inside of the book that’s trapped in Jade’s mind.  Now she not only needs to protect herself from the Triad, but from what’s hiding inside her mind as well. 
Jade never expected the answer to it all would revolve around love. 
Edge is dark, mysterious, and a sworn member of the Triad.  He also hides a secret past that threatens the thin line he walks between good and evil.  Lives are at stake when Jade and Edge’s two worlds collide.  Can Jade learn to trust him when he says he is her pre-ordained and vows to do everything he can to protect her?  But more importantly, can she trust herself and the woman in her mind? 

Jade was orphaned at a young age, when the Triad killed her parents.  After living in several foster homes, she ran away to the streets.  There, she met Jessa and Rainy, and the three of them moved into a cottage by the sea.  They were hidden away from the Triad, until fate brings Jade back into their sights.  Soon, they are in a race away from the evil forces and working towards achieving safety for their community. 
This was a fast-paced, action, thrill with witches and romance that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end.  It was so smoothly written, it is hard to believe this is Ms. Loveday's first publication.  I'm willing to bet she has a drawer full of stories somewhere.  We can only hope she decides to share more with us!
Warning:  this does end in a cliff-hanger (I literally cried "nooooo!" when I read the last sentence), but DO NOT let that keep you from reading this book.  It will be worth the wait to see what comes next!
