Hot Magic: Black Cat Antiquities Book 1 (Cat's Paw Cove 5) Kindle Edition
She’s feeling hotter than ever. He’s rightfully suspicious. But will an ancient darkness kill more than their chemistry?
Molly Hendrickson’s self-confidence has taken a massive dent. Reeling from her ex-fiancé’s betrayal, the schoolteacher feels as dusty as the stuff she’s cleaning out of her late mother’s home. But when she puts on an old necklace she finds, it awakens unfamiliar and deliciously spicy desires…
Lucian Lord can’t escape his reincarnated past. A twelfth-century knight turned modern-day antiques dealer, his desperate pact with a powerful sorcerer’s organization left him duty-bound to contain danger. So when a stunning woman walks in with a bygone collection that sets off all his alarms and takes his breath away, he has hard-pressed reasons to get her number.
Addicted to the power of the pendant, Molly basks in her sensual connection to the gorgeous man from the shop. But the more influence Lucian sees the jewel take, the more he and his former-squire-turned-feline fear his code of honor will drive them all to their doom.
Will their undeniable attraction survive an age-old threat and make it to happily ever after?

Molly Hendrickson is a 3rd grade teacher who is in Cat's Paw Cove to take care of her selling her mother's house after her death. She's going through her things and finds some things to take to the antiquities shop. Her Mom also has 4 very special cats, Rose, Marigold, Petunia & Daisy, that Molly will keep with her. Things start to go creepy after Molly finds a special necklace and puts in on.
Then there's the evil group, The Dealers who are also after the necklace and won't stop at anything to get it. Lucien knows what the necklace but will he be able to save Molly and continue to work on their attraction to each other?

Molly is a third-grade teacher who is in Cat's Paw Cove to clear out her late mother's home before selling it. Her self-esteem took a hit when her fiancé broke off their engagement, and her mother's death added to her unhappiness. When she finds an unusual necklace and tries it on, it changes the way she sees herself.
I liked the first meeting between Molly and Lucian. He and Galahad first notice her as she stood in front of the shop. Lucian is attracted to her from the moment he sees her, a fact that isn't lost on Galahad. Galahad, who was formerly Lucian's squire, is a fourteen-year-old boy in a cat's body. It was fun to see Galahad stir up Lucian during Molly's first visit. Molly is just as attracted as Lucian and has a hard time concentrating around him.
Things start to get crazy when Molly takes some jewelry to Lucian but keeps the necklace for herself. On the professional side, Lucian's dark magic alarms go crazy every time Molly takes the necklace out of its special box, but because Molly puts it away quickly, Lucian has a hard time locating the source of the magic. Every time that Molly puts the necklace on, she feels sexier and more confident, and more determined to have Lucian. It quickly becomes clear that the dark magic has a personal connection to Lucian after a hair-raising confrontation at his shop. I ached for Lucian when instructions from his bosses made it look like his relationship with Molly would be over before it began. The final confrontation was intense and terrifying as Lucian battled to save Molly from the evil that followed him through the ages.
This was the darkest of the Cat's Paw Cove stories so far. The intensity of the danger Molly was in kept me glued to the pages until it was done. The evil was balanced by the depth of the love that Lucian and Molly felt for each other. That love played a huge part in the resolution of the final conflict. There was also an unexpected twist in the aftermath of the confrontation that had a big impact on Lucian and Molly's future.
On the lighter side, the cats were an essential part of the story. I loved Galahad and his relationship with Lucian. It was fun to see him rile Lucian up, especially when it came to Molly. He was also Lucian's biggest supporter and backup when danger came calling. The four Sherwood cats that belonged to Molly's mother turned out to be more than just pets. Their protectiveness of Molly was fun to see when Lucian came calling, and I loved the interactions between them and Lucian.
