It should have been an easy task...
Verity Hastings has a little trick; she can find anything, no matter where it's hidden. It's a skill that's kept her safe and fed all the way from the orphanages and workhouses of her youth. But when she steals a mysterious item for a masked man, she knows the con is on her this time.
In order to protect herself from his associates, she can turn to only one person: Adrian Bishop, the sorcerer she stole the relic from.
Scarred recluse, Adrian Bishop, is rarely surprised anymore. But when a rather enticing little handful turns up on his doorstep claiming to be his mysterious thief, he doesn't know what to think. He needs the relic back, no matter the cost, and he's not above using Verity to find it. But as Verity begins to sneak under his guard, for the first time in years there's a ray of light in his dark world. He will do anything to protect her–anything–but can Verity ever love him once she learns the truth of his darkest secret?

Fantastic story! Thrilling and wonderfully complex.
Fantastic! There were a lot of exciting things happening in this book, and I didn't want it to end. However, the ending was one of my favorite parts. It was quite the emotional roller coaster, and I loved every second of it. Verity and Adrian made a great pair. The way she pushed his buttons was very entertaining. Adrian was fascinating. He was capable of being vicious, but sweet and sensitive as well. With the darkness being so close to controlling him, I never knew what he was going to do. The magic and power in this book was phenomenal, and made for some thrilling situations. Bec McMaster did a magnificent job weaving together quite a few complex and intense story lines. I couldn't put this book down. I have not read the first book in this series yet, and that did not affect how much I enjoyed this one. It easily stands on its own, but I can't wait to go read book one. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
