Blurb: If he had a choice, Daniel Beckett would wait to cast the Beckett family mating spell until his life is more settled. But his brothers, worried he’s losing himself to his wolf, aren’t giving it to him.
Daniel doesn’t need a spell to know Kerry Andrews is his mate. With the last of the Godwin warlocks still on the loose, Daniel crosses his fingers that the willful, stubborn, beautiful woman will allow him to protect her.
Kerry is tempted to make Daniel wait, like he’s made her wait for so long. But the decision is taken out of her hands when things start going horribly wrong. A sleeper hex is activated, putting her life in danger—and the only safe place to run is Daniel’s waiting arms.
Once there, Kerry finds a whole new world to explore with her magical mate. But Arthur Godwin is plotting to rip away their newfound happiness. Women who look like Kerry are turning up dead…and it’s only a matter of time before the killer’s weapon hits its intended prey.
Review: I usually enjoy a Dana Marie Bell book better than this. This one just didn’t seem to be up to the same level as many of her other books. It felt kind of rushed and as if it was missing quite a bit of substance as there just didn’t really seem to be an awful lot going on in this one. The two sides of the story, the romantic aspect and the suspense aspect, just didn’t quite fit together right either.
I kept getting tripped up over the twin’s names when that topic came up because they were so similar. There was even a time or two where I’m certain they even got flip flopped around, when it should have been one name but was the other instead, and it got missed in the editing process, which made the confusion even worse. It also didn’t help that the names of the twins’ partners were similar to each other either. Kerry and Kelly, then Daniel and Dennis.
I don’t know if I just wasn’t really in the mood for this or what, but I wasn’t a fan of this one at all.
