Sizzling suspense and sexy magic are sure to propel this hot new series onto the charts. These characters definitely have baggage, which only makes their relationship growth more interesting. Bast is a talent to watch, and her magical world is one to revisit.
Mira Hoskins has no idea that she's a powerful hereditary air witch. After her parents were murdered by the evil warlock Cane, Mira wasn't told of her heritage. But with Cane on the move, needing to sacrifice another air witch for a demon summoning, Mira's powerful witch relatives decide it's time to bring her into the fold.
The fire witch assigned the task of protecting Mira is Jack McAllister, who has the dubious distinction of being Cane's biological son. At age 10, after witnessing the murder of Mira's mother, Jack ran away from his father. Fire and air are attracted elements, making the sexual sparks between Mira and Jack immediate and hot. But Jack fears Mira's rejection if she learns his true identity. Plus, Thomas, the coven leader and Mira's cousin, doesn't want her heart broken. An untrained witch, Mira has only just begun to discover how powerful she is. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jun., 296 pp., $7.99)
