Overview

Have sex, avert doom, save the world.

The Mayan Doom is real. Government witch Amaia Jones has the spreadsheet to prove it.

Amaia is a desk-bound research wizard, living uncomfortably in the shadow of her famous Venus-magic parents. Then she discovers the world is ending. Tonight. But her bulldog of a boss not only refuses to believe her, he won't give her the secret to calling the one force powerful enough to help--the jinn.

She turns to her mental guardian angel, Rafe, the darkly handsome presence who has comforted her since her parents died.

Rafe has a secret of his own. He's a black diamond jinn, one of the deadliest and most powerful of his kind. He's detected an enemy ruthlessly using blood sacrifice to stoke Y12 public panic. Rafe needs to get into the human realm to stop the Doom, but he can't unless Amaia calls him, and she is threatened by his scorching sensuality.

Amaia's guardian angel is a stunning jinni and suddenly her job is far more complicated. Jinn take their pound of flesh in exchange for magical help, but the only flesh Rafe wants is hers, taut with delight. Sounds great, except Venus magic is what killed her parents' love. But her alternatives are rapidly dwindling, and with four hours to go on humanity's darkest night, the only alternative to surrendering her flesh may be surrendering her life.

This title contains explicit sexual language and may not be suitable for all readers.

Black Diamond Jinn is a short, hot, science fiction/fantasy fusion with sex, emotion and great T-shirt lines.


"I love, love, love Mary Hughes' writing style[...]I do believe that each time Ms Hughes delivers a new hero to her voracious fans they become hotter and sexier." -- Hayley, Fallen Angel Reviews

"Ms. Hughes made me laugh, made me blush, and swept me away for hours upon hours of enjoyment with this fabulous tale. Joyfully Recommended!" -- Shayna, Joyfully Reviewed (on Bite My Fire)

Enjoy this excerpt from Black Diamond Jinn!

Mentally I turned. Gliding smoothly toward me through the deep stillness of my psychic landscape was the hazy figure of a tall, broad-shouldered man. I smiled. “Hello, Rafe.”

*Greetings, Amaia.* As he neared, the haze resolved into a lithe, powerful body, a stern face with straight nose, black slash brows, high, honed cheekbones—and two glowing black-diamond eyes.

My guardian angel. My friend too, his deep voice always reassuring, his advice solid and good.

His glittering ancient eyes rattled me, but the hot quivering in my belly said it wasn’t fear. Then again, thanks to Dennis I had Venus magic on the brain. “Are you here to help me with my problem, Rafe?”

*As always.*

The tension I was carrying eased. My guardian angel probably wasn’t real, but he felt real. He was logical and cool even when I was hyperventilating, coming through for me in times of crisis, like now. “You know what’s at stake?”

*The fate of the world.* He spread his fine hands. *You must summon a jinni.*

When I’m in meditation, my emotions are glass-lake still. But that shocked me. “Wenkermann said no.”

*And you always listen to Wenkermann?* The dry tone was back.

“You know I don’t. But in this case he’s right. Jinn are dangerous.” Deadly dangerous.

    Amaia Jones is a witch that is tied to her desk job. While researching, Amaia discovers Mayan Doom, that is the date on the Mayan calendar that predicts the end of the world. Her boss will not listen to reason and refuses to give her the secret in calling aJinn,the only being that is powerful enough to help.

    Rafe is Amaia's guardian angel. He is also a Black Diamond Jinn, the most powerful of all Jinns. He is willing to help Amaia, but as everyone know, Jinn's are renowned for taking their pound of flesh for the use of their magic and Rafe wants Amaia. After seeing her parents love destroyed from Venus Magic, Amaia is reluctant but as Mayan Doom is fast approaching and , she is running out options.

    Mary Hughes writes a fast paced science fiction /fantasy (with sexual explicit language). It's a shorter book but a fun read. **I was given this book in exchange for an honest review**

    If you want a story that really jumps right into the climax (hah

    If you want a story that really jumps right into the climax (haha), you will find it right here! The story begins with a witch, Amaia Jones, discovering that the Mayan Doom is actually real. Yes I am referring to the day that the Mayan calendar ends which happens to be December 21, 2012 (i.e. this year). In this world though, witches are known and in the employment of the government. The entirety of their jobs is unknown to the reader, but you get the idea that they combat other witches and wizards to prevent major worldwide disasters. They also research artifacts that have imbued magical powers. Amaia is a research witch that has been put on the project Y12 to help spread world peace and prevent the Mayan Doom from occurring if indeed it is real.

    Amaia discovers mathematical evidence to prove that all their peace efforts are failing. In other words, if enough people believe the Mayan Doom is real, it will become real. What she did not know was that even without the world believing it, it was going to happen because a witch or group of witches was ritualistically sacrificing other witches in order to foster their magic to release the nightmare gods. Other than creating such horrendous nightmares that all of humanity is paralyzed until their death, I don't know what else would happen if the catastrophe happens. The only way for Amaia to stop it is to call upon a Jinni and evoke venus magic. Venus magic is magic created through climaxing. You can guess the kind I am referring to. There are some very steamy scenes demonstrating the power of Venus magic that definitely are worth reading.

    I don't want to give away much more than I already have, but will leave you with saying that I read this book in about five hours. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and Mary Hughes writing style.

    Great fun!

    It's tough when the only way the you can save the world is to have amazing Venus sex with a super hunky jinn that you thought was your guardian angel. Despite this giant, hard-to-ignore (no pun intended) plot element, this book is not about sex. It's about creating your own destiny and never giving up - even when the world is literally coming to an end.

    In addition to the funny, sharp lines and wonderful writing, I loved the book's great characters: Amaia, the conflicted research wizard with a tragic past, and and Rafe, the jinn whose heart is as huge as his body is fantastic. Black Diamond Jinn is the first Mary Hughes' book I've read, but I plan on reading many more.
