She has magical abilities unlike any other. She has devoted her life to the Collegium which is supposed to regulate magical users and keep everyone safe from demons. When she is betrayed by those she trusted, she tries to start a new life but her old life won't let her go easily. The only difference is she now has a leopard-shifter committed to keeping her safe and happy.
Fay Olwen has spent her life being trained by her father in developing her magic. She has no friends or life other than her work at the Collegium. Her father has weak magic and only sees Fay as a tool to keep his role as the President of the Collegium and offers her no love. She has incredibly strong magic and is often sent on dangerous tasks to banish demons. On an assignment, she works with Steve Jekyll who is a leopard-shifter. He tempts her with his offers of a very personal relationship but her work leaves her no room for romance.
Steve Jekyll does work for the Collegium as a consultant. He is the kind of man any woman would want in their life. He is strong, protective, sexy and intelligent. He wants Fay and is not afraid to admit to his feelings. Fay is not making it easy but he doesn't give up. Steve has some secrets that he keeps from Fay and reveals to her later in the story and made me interested in reading the second book in the series that is already published.
This is listed as a paranormal romance novella. Some of the paranormal authors focus more on the action and some more on the romance. Jenny Schwartz does a very good job of balancing the romance and action which can be especially difficult in a novella. There is sexual content that delivers the heat and plenty of action as well as Fay demonstrates her magical skills.
The author packs a lot of story into the pages. There is a great deal of action taking place and Fay's life changes dramatically on the personal front as well. There are many surprises that I have not disclosed that keep the story very interesting and make you want to read more. The author has created characters that hook you in and make you want to spend more time with them. I can definitely see a whole series featuring Fay and Steve and their adventures similar to the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews.
