A talented magician who is driven by ambition and a desire to be the best, the heroine has no time for dating, or marriage or kids. She dedicated to her career-a free spirit who travels the country, a woman without any ties holding her down. Then her sister runs off to some god forsaken jungle leaving her 4 kids with the heroine. Having zero clue as to how to deal with teenagers, she instead tries to hire a private detective to track her sister down and get her back to the states. She met the hero previously at a friends wedding and they shared an instant and passionate attraction. She's heard that he's the best at finding people so she goes to him for aid. The hero however has vowed to retire and prevent the pain he experiences with the disappointment regarding his missing powers. Always he had the ability of psychometry but lately it's fizzled out. He couldn't help the heroine even if he tried. But that doesn't stop him from desiring her, or asking her out. They go on a few dates, he gets to know her nieces and nephews and they get hot and heavy every free chance they get. But the relationship between them is not so easy. The heroine is being blackmailed by a rich and powerful woman who duped her into unwittingly stealing the hero's jewel. When the heroine finds out that the man she loves is the victim, she's even more disgusted with herself. And when the hero finds out that not only is one of his priceless jewels missing but the woman he loves was the one to take it he's devastated and feeling betrayed. But regardless of the lack of trust between them, he can't let her go. For her he feels a soul deep attraction that burns like a fire within him. And when she tells him the whole story, he comes up with the plan to trick the other woman into taking that fall for the thief. While this is happening, mythological gods are waging a secret war for the fate of the hero and heroine's love. The story plays heavily around the Greek Myths and the hero himself is deeply involved in a world he never truly imagined to be real, even though his life has been filled with the supernatural. And the heroine must find the courage to trust him and to search herself to figure out what she truly wants in life. I thought this book was well written with clever dialogue and an interested plotline. I found the heroine a healthy mix of strong and vulnerable which is something I love in all my characters. Her hypocrisy to make a living during magic yet to be completely against the idea that anyone could possess magical powers was frustrating at times and she was also stubbornly against the idea of a life where she had ties to one place. Though she eventually realized that she lived a lonely and unfulfilling life, she truly was passionate about her career and her joy when doing magic came through the pages. The hero was great. It was heartbreaking to read about him keeping a box of objects to missing people and to touch them everyday with the hope of his ability returning only to be disappointed. He was so in love with the heroine even from the jump that he was willing to just be near her, to have her on her terms yet he was no push over. He fought for what he wanted and he did it without making an ass of himself or coming across as a demanding alpha male. Nice book with great chemistry between the characters. ( )

The last of the trilogy, which makes me extremely sad since I love and adore it. In any case, Hugh Pendragon is the star here, and he's great. He's a quiet, unobtrusive guy who has hidden himself away until a sparkling woman changes all that - pretty much the Persephone story all over but with a thoroughly modern and romantic twist. ( )
