A love lost in dark magic. A path to redemption obscured by evil…

Cruelly dumped at the altar by the man she loves, Miranda McAllister turns her back on Santa Fe and takes off with Simon Gutierrez, who promises to help her develop her newly awakened magical powers…even though her logical self warns against acting on impulse so soon after her humiliation at Rafe Castillo’s hands.

Under Simon’s patient guidance, Miranda discovers the astounding depth and breadth of her gifts. Yet too many unanswered questions leave her uneasy, especially when Simon indicates he’d like to move them out of the friend zone.

Rafe Castillo still can't figure out what the hell happened the day of his wedding. A powerful spell forced him to spew those spiteful words at Miranda…and whoever cast that spell has covered their tracks so thoroughly, no trace remains — to Rafe's human form, at least. His coyote alter ego can track fainter wisps of magic, magic as dark and hateful as the things he said that fateful day at the church.

Intent on finding Miranda no matter what, Rafe relentlessly follows a twisting, turning, increasingly deadly trail. But by the time he learns the truth, the race to save her from an unspeakable evil may already be lost….


  • The evil is growing and Miranda and Rafe may not be able to survive it.

    Loving this series. You “might” be able to read this book alone but it’ll be so much better after the previous book as this is a continuation of the story of Miranda and Rafe. Their “arranged” marriage results in Miranda getting brutally dumped at the altar by Rafe. She takes off with Simon to learn more about her newly manifested powers. But there is evil about and Simon is an excellent villain. Rafe must solve this mystery if he is to get Miranda back before she is taken over by evil. Lots of backstory and history comes back to bite them. Great continuation and looking forward to the next installment. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).
