Shayla Black-- "Temp Me with Darkness" (Doomsday Brethren Novel)

As soon as Marrok sees Olivia Gray's dark windswept hair and burning violet eyes, he's sure they've met in eons past. He's felt her soft gentle curves writhing in pleasure beneath his own hard powerful body...Morganna! For centuries, towering Marrok, once the mightiest of King Arthur's warriors, has endured a terrible curse cast upon him when he spurned the witch.

Olivia shares a mystical--and irresistible--connection with brooding Marrok. Soon after the sexy warrior appears in her erotic dreams, he abducts her, demanding she uncurse him. Their intense passion is more powerful--and intimate--than either of them has ever known. Olivia may be the key to unlocking the diary that will break Morganna's hold on his life. But in the wrong hands, the book also holds the power to destroy all magickind. As they search for answers, a ruthless wizard returned from exile is building an army of evil. When he discovers Marrok and Olivia have the diary, only their love--with the help of a powerful group of magical Brethren--can save them.

***This is not my typical choice of book to read. It is based on magic, wielded by bloodlines started by Merlin and Morgan le Fay. One evil, one good. It took me a good 100 pages to get into the story, I am not used to reading stories based in England. But once the story got going, I found myself enjoying the humor and connection between Marrok and Olivia. Their love story is cute, in no way original by any means. Strong woman saves brooding man from himself. But there is a backstory developing that takes the story along with them and a few more characters come into play. All in all it was a good Sunday afternoon read, not a keeper, but ok. This seems to be the beginning of a series, I won't rush out to buy them, but i might read the rest of it on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
