Fairy and law enforcement agent, Dulcie O'Neil, finds her life is pretty boring at the moment. Her hunky boyfriend and boss, Knight Vander, is busy setting up the new world order in the Netherworld and hasn’t been around much. Consequently, Dulcie is put in charge of Headquarters for the ANC (Association for Netherworld Creatures). Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t have a whole lot to keep her occupied…
Well, that is, until Jax Rochefort storms into Headquarters and her life. Jax, who’s a member of one of the most infamous illegal potions rings, ups and turns himself in with little to no explanation. Dulcie takes it upon herself to solve the riddle of Jax Rochefort, all the while trying to dodge his obvious advances.
Dulcie learns that the new Netherworld government is threatened by the potions cartels, who wish to see their own in power. Things heat up when Jax kidnaps Dulcie, all the while claiming to be following orders for his mysterious boss.
After discovering that everyone she cares about is directly in the line of fire, Dulcie must do everything in her power to ensure their safety as well as the security of the new Netherworld government.

To be continued
That's the main reason I give this book two stars. One pays for the new book and find it ends in the middle of the story saying, "to be continued..." It's a great marketing ploy for the reader has to buy the next book in the series to obtain resolution. In this case, there isn't a next book available, as this was the latest in the series. I find this tactic leaves the reader frustrated; like only half of a book was bought. When the next book is released, the reader will have to re-read this book to remember what has happened. The story is no longer vivid in the mind of the reader and the page turning effect has been lost. Ms. Mallory should write a complete installment that stands alone and not contingent upon her fans buying the next book to obtain the conclusion. Many authors in this genre, (Charlaine Harris, Laurell k. Hamilton, etc.) write each book in the series where at the end there is a resolution and the next book in the series picks up immediately after or a little time in the future. Now that Ms. Mallory is no longer self published, you'd hope her editor would catch the spelling and context errors in the first eight chapters. The book itself is ok. If you've read any Dulcie books, you'll know who kidnapped her from the beginning. It's anti-climatic when they finally meet face to face in the last two chapters of the book. Only to have the events change and, ("To Be Continued....")
