First, I had no idea this was the second book in a series. With that said, it absolutely did not matter. It was easy to read as a standalone. The book was adorable, whimsical, funny and sexy in a heartwarming fantasy kind of way!
Rose Maxell, a witch, has recently stepped down from the Supernatural Council and is looking to find something she is good at. So far, she has not been very successful, barely being able to keep her temper in check. At a crossroads, there are some things she does knows for sure. She absolutely does not want to be in a relationship! But when she walks into a bar and sees half-demon Damian Adams, she has no problem engaging in a one-nightstand. For his part, Damian happily agrees!
But when Rose and her two sisters try to break out some horses they believe are being abused, she gets quite the surprise. First, the break-out was from an animal Sancturary, and second, her one-night stand is the veterinarian at the haven. But more repulsive to her, the Council has decided as punishment for her crime, she must do 30 days of community service there. Needless to say, this does not bode well for either Rose or Damian.
Still searching for a new ‘”real” job, Rose realizes she not only enjoys assisting with the animals, but she is extremely good at the work. She is like an animal whisperer. She realizes she has yet to fit in anywhere, but the Sancturary gives her peace. Unfortunately, Damian gives her anxiety! He fights every good idea she comes up with and she seems to have put a permanent scowl on his very handsome face.
But as they both maneuver how to get along while working, the original spark they had the first night they met begins to become irresistible to both of them. They become “buddies” of a sort. But while Rose would like to take the relationship a step further, Damian has a secret. Years ago, he dumped a witch and she put a hex on him that cannot be removed…ever! He can never fully give his heart to someone, or he basically loses his soul.
So, how do a witch and a demon hunter fix this problem? Well, you will just have to read this enjoyable, unpredictable, supernatural, seductive love story!
