Magnus Corbett is a little blunt when it comes to getting things done but he's determined that bold flavors and his tireless work ethic will keep him on the map as a renowned head chef in this riveting paranormal romance.
Caroline Lundquist is determined to have new gin-inspired dishes to pair with her new line of cocktails and the reader can't help but be drawn into this romance as Magnus and Caroline's collaboration leads to something more. The chemistry is sweet and spicy with some hot and steamy sex scenes but not only is navigating a vampire-human relationship difficult, both of their pasts crop up and threaten to destroy their growing relationship. The characters are strong, charming and pull the reader into their well written, fast paced and smooth flowing story full of suspense and romance.
The story is a sweet romance that has Magnus and Caroline overcoming prejudices and insecurities in order to reach for their happily ever after. There is some fun and chuckles throughout the story as well, provided by some humorous dialogue. While I didn't find this one quite as good as the first one, although I couldn't tell you why that is, it was still a captivating story in a fascinating world and I am looking forward to reading the next one.
