Dangerously handsome Simon Northam, Duke of Hurstgrove, and his uptight brother Mason are hardly close, but crashing Mason’s wedding and stealing his fiancee further aggravate their sibling rivalry. Duke’s family has no notion he’s a wizard, so how can he explain that magickind’s fate lies with the beautiful, tenacious bride he longs to seduce?
Felicia is an Untouchable, a rare human whose presence disables magic -- even the impenetrable forces surrounding Morganna le Fay’s tomb. The evil witch’s malicious powers could propel nefarious wizard Mathias to ultimate world domination . . . if he can resurrect her. To conceal herself, Felicia must succumb to her smoldering desire for Duke, but he risks binding his life -- and sanity -- to a lover whose loyalties are forever torn. He faces a choice: betray his brother for ultimate survival . . . or lose the woman who tempts him beyond control.
*** (3.5 stars)
Well.....I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I didn't love it, but didn't hate it either. I'm just kind of "luke warm" about it. I did keep turning the pages and read it in 3 days. Simon and Felicia weren't as passionate as previous couples. I think the length of time in which it took Felicia to open up to Simon "Duke" took to long, it seemed as if she would never let herself fall in love with him. The action with Mathias picks up in this book, and as usual there is more drama with Shock. The trip thru Moganna's tomb was interesting and the climax in the tomb was good. But the ending overall was weak. I'm not giving up on this series, they can't all be obsessive page turners and the sneak peek in the next book sounds really interesting.
