4 1/2 Stars!!! This final installment in Stenzel's puca/druid magical series is a great finale, full of magic, familiar faces, some humor, some mystery, hot sex and wonderful characters. This is a story created to be read quickly yet savored slowly, because once it's over, there is no more.

Summary: When Daphne Forbes unintentionally acquires a combination of puca and druid powers, she also acquires a keeper to help her learn to control them -- or eliminate her. Tremayne is a nature spirit who has been in charge of these puca powers for 2,000 years. For him, helping Daphne may be the key to being completely free, perhaps at the cost of her sanity. As Daphne and Tremayne share his home, they soon discover that he's evolving into a feeling, compassionate being, one who is unwilling to chance losing Daphne for his personal gain. But once she discovers what he truly is and that she loves him, she refuses to let anyone stand in the way of helping him, with some dire results.

As a CPA, Daphne Forbes understands the bottom line better than her accounting peers as the daughter of a druid. However she soon learns the basic paranormal law of unintended consequences when she trips over a magical cornerstone that leaves her with puca and druid magic; of which she understands how to use neither.

For two millennia, Tremayne the spirit essence has been stuck controlling puca powers. He sees his freedom finally by assisting Daphne in using her powers; though he also accepts unintended consequences may occur as long as they happen to her. As Tremayne pretending to be Daphne¿s guardian tutor trains her to use her power, he finds his long forgotten heart beating with love. He needs to keep his beloved safe even if he must return to the pathetic tormented world she has enabled him to partially escape. When Daphne learns the truth about her soulmate, she vows to risk her life to save him especially from his novel self.

BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HEART PLACE is an enjoyable amusing romantic urban fantasy starring a brave heroine struggling with her sudden surge in magical power and in her heart¿s desire; both new lifting and dangerous experiences. Though the plot is a bit thin, the story line is fast-paced from the onset as the CPA and the spirit fall in love with each of the loving pair thinking he or she will have to sacrifice their life for the other. Fans will enjoy Natalie Stenzel's fun tale and seek her previous paranormal romances (see PANDORA'S BOX and THE DRUID MADE ME DO IT).
