Publisher's Summary

She'd left magic behind....
Once upon a time, Elise Sutton had been a powerful witch and paranormal enforcer. Once she'd been madly in love with Fae lord Aidan Greene. But when Aidan had considered his duties more important than their relationship, the love affair ended badly. Shortly after, while on the hunt for a rogue demon, Elise was brutalized and almost killed. Months later, she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. To protect her child, and her heart, Elise decided to live a nonmagical life - until she meets Aidan again, and he assumes Dina is his daughter.
When Dina is kidnapped by a racial-purity movement, Elise turns to Aidan for help. The icy facade she has built around herself shatters at Aidan's touch. Together they have to hunt through the human and faery worlds to find Dina... and to discover whether or not they have any kind of chance at a happily ever after.

Boooring!

This book was very bland and run of the mill, with like a million uninteresting characters and a silly blend of romance tropes that made me laugh like crazy.

Aidan is a Fae Lord pirate turned corporate raider. *snorts*. He's lived more than 1,000 years but when he finds the "only woman he's ever loved", he's too busy with other stuff and lets her go without a fight. Elise is also supposedly deeply in love but doesn't try to work with Aidan on their issues. Neither ever mentions their feelings to the other so each is left with the thought that the other doesn't love them.

As you can see, neither character acts as if they are really in love. If you really love a person, you don't give up at the first opportunity!

Most of the plot was spent rehashing what happened in the first book and introducing so many characters that it was impossible to determine who was who. The seemingly insurmountable problems that separated these two in the first place weren't even an issue so that tells you that if only they had talked a bit, everything could have been avoided.

The murky issue of Dina's paternity is the author's way of having a secret baby plot without blaming Elise. All I can say is that it didn't work.

The narration was good. I'll listen to another book narrated by Gabra Zackman but definitely not continuing this series.

- D.G. "Voracious reader/listener: I usually have one ebook and one audiobook going at a the same time. I'm a very eclectic reader so I tend to switch genres after every book. I'm open to most genres but my favorites in audio are mystery and fantasy (epic and urban both)."

Fantastic!!

I love when I find a new author and enjoy the book so much that I will be listening to other books by same author. Looking forward to listening to this author in the future.
