What do you get when you mix gorgons, an incubus, and the Calamity Queen? Trouble, and lots of it.
For Bailey, catering to the magical is a tough gig on a good day, but she has few other options. She can either keep spiking drinks with pixie dust to keep the locals happy, or spend the rest of her life cleaning up some of the world’s nastiest magical substances.
Years after helping Police Chief Samuel Quinn escape an unhappy marriage, Bailey is once again entangled in his personal affairs. To make matters worse, Quinn’s ex-wife is angling for revenge, tossing Bailey into the deep end along with her sexiest enemy.
Warning: This novel contains excessive humor, action, excitement, adventure, magic, romance, and bodies. Proceed with caution.
A 5 star read.
There are just so many mythological creatures turning up in
this novel – and each and every one of them has attitudes.
Especially when they encounter our heroine – a vanilla human
– or is she? Who is a kick-ass snarky virgin. And it is this latter descriptor
that brings her to the attention of the gorgon community.
We learn a great deal about the gorgon society in this novel
and their mating habits, and also just who finds a use for succubus and incubus
in their love life – and what happens when you get a incubus drunk in a bar.
And then there is also the Quinn family – I found the court
room scene hilarious – don’t stop reading before you get there!
Lots of fun and hilarity in a nicely crafted mystery story,
well written with an easy style – and no grammar or proofing mistakes obvious.
Some Americanism in the verbs but I can accept that.
