After a chaotic marriage and a rough divorce, all Mira Hoskins wants is stability and normality. But when sexy Jack McAllister enters her life, she discovers that what you want isn't always what you need.

Jack is a powerful witch with the ability to command fire and is anything but normal. As the head of a security detail for The Coven, a national organization that governs national witches, Jack has been assigned to watch over Mira. She is a natural born witch with the ability to call the air. And although she is unaware of her talent, a group of renegade witches has discovered her existence and are determined to steal her power--and her life.

This is the first book by Anya Bast I’ve read and I was pleasantly surprised. I assumed it was going to be mostly romance focused. But it

Bast’s characters and world building sucked me in and kept me interested. I couldn’t put the book down. I almost finished it in one sitting.

The main female character, Mira is trying to survive on her own after an ugly divorce from her cheating husband. She is working as a waitress trying to support herself, while trying to complete a college degree.

One night while she is at work she notices that the hot and mystery guy that she can’t take her mind off of is sitting at a table in her section. She goes to wait on him and as always he is quite and keeps his head down while reading and only ordering coffee. He has become a regular at the dinner and in her nightly fantasies.

Later that night at Mira apartment two men try to break down her door and Jack McAllistar, the hot guy from the dinner, comes to her aid. Mira passes out after she takes a blow to the head and then wakes up in a strange place…..Jack’s apartment.

Jack tells Mira about her heritage as a witch and of course she thinks he is crazy. But after he proves it to her, Jack becomes Mira’s teacher in magic and they begin to work together to figure out what her would be kidnappers want.

As Mira and Jack get closer their lust slowly becomes love in this great book by Anya Bast. I cannot wait to continue reading this series. has a great plot that I can see carry through to the end of the series.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
