In a world where pleasure unlocks even the best-guarded magic, Cian has a long list of magical talents—and an even longer list of sorcerers he slept with to acquire them. He even seduced a dragon. There’s just one arcane power left for him to master: command over the sea. Now Cian has learned where to find Muir the Scarred, the only man known to have mastered that power—and he is determined to wrest it from him by whatever means necessary.
But completing the task isn’t so easy. First, Cian’s boat is wrecked on the shores of Muir’s desolate island. Then he learns an enchantment will keep him there forever. And when he tries to seduce Muir, he finds himself being seduced by the mysterious sorcerer instead. But the source of the power Cian seeks is also trapped on the island, and it will stop at nothing to break free, even if that means forcing pleasure—and magic—from Cian’s unwilling body.
I want to be honest when I say that when I started this book, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. I had read other books by Spencer in the past, and enjoyed them, and when I saw this one on my kindle, I started reading it without reading the blurb.
But even with that, I did still enjoy the story! That is one thing that I enjoy about reading Spencer’s books because even though they are a bit different than what I normally read, I still enjoy them greatly. I loved the magical aspects that were added to this story. It really added to the story because Spencer used just the right amount of magical aspects – they didn’t overload the story, but brought it to a completely new level.
The chemistry between Cian and Muir was just off the charts! You could tell that right from the start, and it did lead to some great sexy-time scenes between the two of them. They both worked really well together, and it was amazing to be able to follow along with their relationship and to watch as they both learned more about each other.
I would say that if you are looking for a great read that is packed with suspense, then this is the one for you!
