When witch Kelly Shane returns to the bar where she and her best friend were kidnapped and traded to another world through the portal hidden there, she's sure that portal guardian and shapeshifter Kol Hildr is partially to blame. Although Kelly made it back alive with the help of her sister, her friend did not, and she can't understand why Kol, a man to whom she's terribly attracted, would allow these things to happen. Although Kelly doesn't quite trust him, she soon helps him defend his bar -- and the portal -- against an attack she may have caused. Full of imagination and novel characters, Lori Devoti's Guardian's Keep (4.5) is sure to please. Devoti's characters and an exciting plot will hook readers.
