Hill has kept up the quality storyline introduced in the first installment of the Arcane Shot series. Centering on a witch who is half succubus and half human — and who happens to run a bordello — Hill creates a combination that is too delicious to resist. The tasty Dark Guardian of the Underworld is the icing on the cake.

When a young incubus, Isaac, shows up on the doorstep of her bordello, Raina takes pity on him. But then the Dark Guardian, Mikhael, arrives to retrieve an item that Isaac has stolen from the Underworld, and administer punishment. Raina’s impetuous decision to protect Isaac could permanently disrupt her carefully constructed life. Especially when the powerful attraction that’s flaring up between Raina and Mikhael adds still more complications. Raina finds that dealing with this Dominant being forces her to relive the trauma of her earlier enslavement. She has vowed never to submit to another male — ever. Mikhael is also conflicted. His mission of doling out justice is clear. But can he fulfill his duty and somehow protect Raina from harm? (BERKLEY SENSATION, May, 342 pp., $7.99)
