Ten years ago, untrained "Charmer" Nell Harris was involved in a terrible magic accident that killed her roommate. Since then, she's wanted nothing to do with her supernatural heritage. But Melissande Banacek sucks Nell back in when she hires her to recover her missing nephew.

The first thing Nell does is run afoul of Adrian Tomas the Betrayer, a Dark One (aka vampire). In spite of his fangs and threats, Nell isn't intimidated at all—in fact, she's amazingly attracted. For the first time in his long tormented life Adrian senses love. Could this nutty American be his beloved? Regardless, the chances of Adrian surviving the next few days are limited.

Nell is on a mission, and she is not about to let anyone stand in the way of true love. MacAlister's offbeat humor and sexy situations make these Moravian books truly irresistible. (Feb., 384 pp., $6.99)
