Ryan O’Byrne has rules: 1) no using his magic, 2) no getting dragged back into his family’s craziness, and 3) no dating supernaturals of any kind, especially shifters … in other words, nothing and no one who will tempt him to break rule number one.

But what if the gorgeous wall of muscle he can’t seem to stay away from just happens to be a shifter? Well, it is only a short-term thing, and he isn’t a master of denial for nothing.

Leo Holt can’t help it if he has a teeny tiny weakness for bad boys—not really bad, just a little prickly around the edges. Even for a unicorn, all sweetness and light, all the time, can get a little boring. But, falling for the eldest son of the dark witch family who runs his little West Virginia town might be getting his fingers too close to the fire, even for him.

For Ryan, it was supposed to be a simple trip back home to show support during a family crisis. But when hexes, secrets, a family demon, and the O’Byrne witches are involved, nothing is ever simple.

This book was so good!  From word one; I was drawn into the world that Rowan McAllister has created.  Ryan O’Byrne and Leo Holt could not have been born into more opposite families.  The very nature of their upbringing should have them at odds.  So of course they are drawn to each other.  


The unveiling of their secrets and the source of the danger to Ryan’s family and Leo himself is so fabulously done.  I knew this was part of the Magic Emporium collection, but until the magic shop appeared, I had totally forgotten that element because the rest of the story was so intriguing.  The romance is really well done and readers will be rooting for these two to find a way to be together.  It is one of those stories that has you sighing at the end because it is so satisfying.  Shifters, Magic, Romance, and Adventure all in one.  So.  Much.  Fun.
