Overview

After the acquittal of Gueraldi's right hand and favored killer for hire, Ashton Smythe, Special Agent Gabriel Spiller takes time away from his work with the FBI. Having failed in his mission to avenge his lost would be lover, Serena Roarke, Gabe returns to Alabama in search of the missing diamonds needed to reopen the investigation and to lay low from the death threats he's received since Smythe went free.
Almost two years after her sister's death, Leannan O'Neal feels the loss of Serena more now than ever. A secret meeting between them before she died left Lea with an ugly figurine and nothing but questions. Hang-up calls at work and a trashed house reminds her of the card Serena gave her. "If you find yourself in trouble, go to him and only him" were the last words her sister spoke to her.
With Smthye out for revenge and hot on her heels, Lea goes on the run in search of Serena's 'Angel', but how long can Gabe keep her alive, and is the cost worth more than her life?

Content Warning: sensual love scenes, graphic violence, adult language.

This is book 2 of the Elemental Magic series, heavy on suspense, action, and conflict. Diamonds are a powerful motivator for violence, betrayal.and the resulting distrust. It's easy to relate to both Leannan and Gabe-their conflict is believable, and so is their attraction. Brynna Curry brings yet another likeable couple together, paints a vivid setting of rural Alabama, and closes a chapter of the ancient 3-part curse her series is based on.
