I love how blunt this romance is too. It’s dirty and fierce. Eugenia almost revels in the fact that she hates him, yet can’t seem to shake him off. They take pleasure from each other, sometimes rough, sometimes drawing it out as long as they can. The romance in this book is so intense that you canâ€™t help but feel the chemistry between these two. I feel like this is where Carolyn Jewel shines. Not just her amazing sexual relationship she builds for her characters, but their overall interactions. Their banter is so smart and fast. Humor, put downs, sarcasm, it all comes through so well. These are two mature people who have been through a lot in their life and watching them come to terms with each other is really a treat.
I found this book to be a clever, very sensual romance. Well done.

As always, Carolyn Jewel's writing is polished and her characterizations delightful. With a story that is by turns very hot and very emotional, I found myself relishing the experience of reading this book. Lynne Spencer, All About Romance
This was another delicious, detailed, smoldering romance from Carolyn Jewel.

Lily Wellstone wasn’t the only one to have been caught in the downpour. She ignored the rain dripping off her bonnet and gazed at the other occupant of the entrance hall.
He was tall with dark hair and an ill-fitting and very wet greatcoat about his broad shoulders. Raindrops darkened his worn boots and glistened in his hair. His eyes were deep-set and private. This was a man who did not share his secrets, a man who could only be unraveled bit-by-tortuous bit. Not for a moment did she mistake him for a fellow caller, though his clothes were hardly better than something a country squire might wear.
This most fascinating man stood at the opposite side of the room from the front door, near the magnificent arched doorway to the second floor. To the right, if she was correct about Bitterward’s architectural integrity, that same archway ended at the butler’s pantry. Two sets of crossed swords hung on the wall on either side of the doorway’s pointed top.
As the shape of the doorway proved, Bitterward was Gothic. Legitimately several centuries old and therefore not a reconstitution of the medieval as was the fashion of the recent past.
Kynan Aijan’s centuries-long enslavement to a mage left him borderline insane and bound to Maddy Winters, a witch he intended to kill in horrible ways.

For Maddy Winters, the fight against evil magic users always takes top priority. But her bonds to Kynan give her intimate access to his thoughts and experiences, and she can’t always ignore their chemistry. Her insistence that she has no feelings for him is a deception she can’t afford to give up.
As Kynan and Maddy join forces to stop a rebellious and murderous witch, the dark magic that binds them locks them into forbidden passions and magic that could destroy them both. Will their fight for what’s right lead to a fight for each other?
