Where I got this book: From Netgalley, free in exchange for an honest review.
Magical species must never mix. According to the rules, Simon Osborne should ignore the children’s cries for help. After all, they’re werewolf cubs, and he’s an apprentice mage. But for once in his life, Simon breaks the rules and rescues the cubs, saving them from a demon intent on draining them of their magic.
Of course, all actions have consequences, and Simon’s bold move earns him the displeasure of his peers and the attention of the cubs’ alpha, a man named Gray Townsend.
The last thing Gray needs is a mage in his life, but Simon did save his son. Since Simon is now a friend of the pack, Gray doesn’t have much choice about it—or the forbidden attraction that goes along with it. Unfortunately for the alpha, he needs Simon’s help to track down the demon behind the kidnappings—before it strikes again. Simon and Gray must join forces to protect the pack, even as they struggle to resist the temptation that threatens to destroy them both.
My ReviewThis was a really great story about a man trying to be the best person he can be in a world that says he can help someone because they are not like him. I really liked that Simon did the right thing and I also liked that Grey didn't allow prejudice to dictate what he should do.
This really was a story about two men making it work between then and doing what ever it took to keep the other safe and happy. I have to say I loved this story and I bought right into it, so much so that I didn't want it to end. I have to say though there was some things left unanswered and I am hoping we are going to get another instalment so we can find out the answers. I have asked the publishers to ask the author so we shall have to see if we will get more from Simon and Grey.
OK I did email the author and this is the reply I got.
Thanks so much for the lovely review! I'll ease your mind...not only is there going to be another book, there will be at least two more in this series.
Book 2, "Body Magic" will be released on September 10 from Dreamspinner Press. Book 3, "Soul Magic" is scheduled for spring of 2013.
(And a little secret, a fourth book is planned for Summer 2013! It will be a spin-off from the world of Simon and Gray.)
I'll be posting the blurb and cover art for Body Magic within the next week or two on my blog. :)
Have a wonderful day, and I hope I've given you hope! LOL
Thank you for visiting and reading my review, I hope to see you again soon!
