Dark, Dangerous, Magical Men Who Live to Annihilate Evil.
Magic didn’t just find Luke Caulfield. It chased him down, bludgeoned him, and has been dogging him ever since. Some lessons are harder than others, but Luke embraces danger, upping the ante to give it one better. An enforcer for the Coven, a large, established group of witches, his latest assignment is playing bodyguard to the daughter of Coven leaders.
Abigail Ruskin is chaperoning a spoiled twelve-year-old from New York to her parents’ home in Utah Territory when Luke gets on their stagecoach in Colorado. A powerful witch herself, Abigail senses Luke’s magic, but has no idea what he’s doing on her stagecoach. Stuck between the petulant child and Luke’s raw sexual energy, Abigail can’t wait for the trip to end.
Unpleasant truths surface about the child. While Abigail’s struggling with those, wraiths, wolves, and dark mages launch an attack. Luke’s so attracted to Abigail, she’s almost all he can think about, but he’s leery too. The child is just plain evil. Is Abigail in league with her? It might explain the odd attack that took out their driver and one of their horses. In over his head, he summons enforcer backup.
Will they help him save the woman he’s falling in love with, or demand her immediate execution?
Great Start to Series
This is the first book in the Coven Enforcers series. All three series books have been released so you don't have to wait for the next book to keep reading. Which is really good for me as I am hooked on this series after reading Blood and Magic and am glad I don't have to wait to keep reading. The book can be read as a standalone. It does end in a soft cliffhanger with Abigail and Luke, along with Aethelred and Mollie, head to Utah to live. There is violence. The sex is hot and steamy so definitely 18+.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a great job of explaining the Coven, the role of Coven Enforcers, and how the main characters ended up travelling in a stagecoach through the wild American West. This is a story of good magic versus dark magic. Who is on which side? The storyline will keep you guessing what twists and turns will be revealed next. It definitely kept me riveted.
I look forward to reading the rest of this series. I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
