Back cover blurb:
I used to think my sister and I were just two nice southern girls who’d get married in a few years and settle down to a quiet life. Then I discovered that Alina and I descend, not from good wholesome southern stock, but from an ancient Celtic bloodline of powerful sidhe — seers, people, who can see the Fae. Not only can I see the terrifying otherworldly race, but I can sense the sacred Fae relics that hold the deadliest of their magic.

When my sister was found dead in a trash-filled alley in Dublin, I came over to get answers. Now all I want is revenge. And after everything I’ve learned about myself, I know I have the power to get it…

MacKayla Lane’s ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland’s shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh — a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V’lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them…

My review:
Ugh. Can’t. Stop. Reading.
Honestly, I don’t have time to review this book – I have to get on and read the next one! The twists and turns don’t stop in this, the second book in the Fever series, and Mac is forced to do some pretty revolting things to get herself out of trouble. But, once again, Jericho saves her life… and the UST cranks up another notch. It’s funny how the death-by-sex Fae Prince V’Lane, who is apparently irresistible to all but (now) Mac, is one of the least attractive characters in the book. Now Jericho on the other hand… *fans self*
Honestly, gotta run. Faefever is all queued up on my Kindle waiting for me!
My rating: 4/5, again because the UST is KILLING me and she really has to believe Jericho is one of the good guys. He just has to be…
