Title: The First Spell
Author: Rachel Carrington
Series: Hot Magic
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Release Date: July 17, 2012
I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Captivated by a wizard with amnesia, Jensen knows he’s only asking for trouble when he takes her to his world. Finding out she’s a member of an enemy guild doesn’t change his connection to her. And their first kiss only strengthens his need to keep her close.
Barely knowing her own name, Charlemaine begins having horrible visions of impeding doom, and she’s labeled an enemy of Jensen’s guild. She doesn’t trust she isn’t being used as bait to bring down the group of powerful wizards, but she doesn’t want to leave Jensen.
Jensen will risk anything to save Charlemaine’s life when magic gives way to betrayal. But will the need for vengeance overcome even the strongest love?
Thoughts: Jensen knows taking Charlemaine is something he shouldn't do, but he can't help it. Their kisses set them on fire and finding out she is forbidden and an enemy doesn't change his feelings in the least. All he knows is that he loves her and will protect her at all costs.
Good Read! I haven't read the other books in the series, but I did enjoy this short story. Jensen and Charlemaine are a great couple to read about. Of course they are forbidden to be with each other, but that made the story even better. I'm a sucker for forbidden loves. The First Spell is a fast, fun read. Sweet and sexy. I loved the fantasy elements. This is a prequel story to Carrington's Hot Magic series. From what I can tell this story can be read as a stand-alone.
Score: 3 Stars
