SHE HATES USING MAGIC . . .

Ever since the death of her parents, Sara Temple has rejected her magical gifts. Then, in a moment of extreme danger, she unknowingly sends out a telepathic cry for help—to the one man she is convinced she never wants to see again.

HE’S A POWERFUL WIZARD . . .

Jackson Slater thought he was done forever with his ex-fiancée, but when he hears her desperate plea, he teleports halfway around the world to aid her in a situation where magic has gone suddenly, brutally wrong.

THEY’VE BEEN CHOSEN TO SAVE THE WORLD . . .

But while Sara and Jack remain convinced they are completely mismatched, the Wizard Council feels otherwise. A dark force is killing some of the world’s most influential wizards, and the ex-lovers have just proved their abilities are mysteriously amplified when they work together. But with the fate of the world at stake, will the violent emotions still simmering between them drive them farther apart . . . or bring them back into each other’s arms?

Review:

"Adair launches a 'paranormal romantic suspense' series with this heavy-handed tale. Local wizards in San Cristobal are dying hideous deaths. Beautiful Sara Temple hates her pyrotechnic powers and can't get her magic working to save herself from such a fate. She calls mentally to her despised ex, handsome Jack Slater, whose wizardly powers bring him teleporting to her aid. The Wizard Council informs them they must work together to ward off the evil Omnivatic snake wizards who show up every three centuries and attempt to procreate and become more powerful. Meanwhile, Jack distrusts Sara's rich, gorgeous boss, Grant. When not over-explaining the obvious, Adair (Hot Ice) keeps the pace brisk and the action vivid. This book should appeal to readers who like bickering protagonists, plenty of sex, and a hero who always comes to the rescue, and who don't mind a risible magic system or an obvious villain."
