Overview

New York Times bestselling author of the Warriors of Poseidon series Alyssa Day returns with a thrilling new series of paranormal romance and a heated battle between good and evil fought to the death on the streets of New York…

Bordertown private investigator Luke Oliver’s beat is the dimensional fold in Manhattan between the human and supernatural realms. But now a secret from his past—the League of the Black Swan—has surfaced. Because Luke isn’t any ordinary P.I. He’s the Dark Wizard of Bordertown, and he never backs down from a fight.

But this time the fight threatens his life and his heart. Rio Jones, the only woman he loved, needs his help against a deadly menace. Luke pushed her away once before, so she’d never fall prey to the curse that threatens to destroy him. He swore he’d never let her go again.

Luke and Rio, with the help of the newly reformed League, must keep evil forces from taking over Bordertown—all the while battling a passion on the razor’s edge between danger and desire. And going to take everything they have just to stay alive.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Day’s League of the Black Swan series kickoff is fun and imaginatively humorous but uneven. In the Borderlands, a city of magic “behind, beneath, and between the streets of Manhattan,” Rio Jones witnesses the kidnapping of a child and is subsequently targeted by supernatural thugs called Grendels. With the assistance of wizard Luke Oliver, the immortal cursed bastard son of Lucrezia Borgia and a famed hottie, Rio rescues the child but abruptly loses her job and home. Inexplicably, her solution is to join Luke in founding an investigative firm. As the rambling plot veers from crisis to crisis—battling a giant duck, rescuing a puppy—pop-culture references keep things light. As Rio’s 25th birthday nears, a diverse cast of demons, fae, and goblins take interest in her destiny and heritage while affirming her Mary Sue tendencies. Paranormal romance fans seeking lighter nonvampire, nonshifter fare will enjoy this promising new series. Agent: Jim McCarthy, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (May)
