Their reunion doesn't make helicopter pilot Josh Campbell any happier than Edie is. Despite their efforts to ignore each other, the sparks between them have not diminished, but neither intends to let them flare again.
When one of them is gravely injured, the two discover their passion runs deeper than either of them could have imagined and they have Dr. Stefan Harper to thank for that chance.
Dr. Harper is happy to have given the couple a second chance, but realizes through Josh and Edie as well as his good friends Val and Griff that what's missing from his life is love.

3.5 stars Nice paranormal novella... This is the first time I’ve read this author and I was pleased. This is a nice paranormal novella. In this world magic and mages and their negative counterparts exist and they live hidden amongst the human population. The mages protect the unknowing world from dark entities. This is a second chance romance between two mages, one a firefighter and the other a helicopter pilot who have run across each other again after a few years and in doing so have come afoul of magic. It is up to mage doctors to save them before their magic is drained and they lose their lives. This novella is part of a series but can stand-alone though characters whose story has already been told do appear and the author did set the stage for the next character’s story without interfering with this one. Considering there was no world building it was easy to follow the paranormal tangents from the storyline. The romance was sweet and we got to learn what had happened in the past that thwarted a relationship at that time but I can’t say that I felt the chemistry between them. The head doctor I found to be an extremely interesting character whose story will be told in the next book and the included excerpt left this reader wanting for more.
I love this series so far! The world that Nancy has created is really unlike anything I've read before! This Novella was action packed and even though it was short, it left me feeling like I had read a full length book. I hope that we will get to see more of Edie and Josh in the books to come because their chemistry was GREAT!!! I am really excited to see where this series will go! Definitely recommend this book!
Great Series: REVIEW: PROTECTOR is a short novella in Nancy Northcott’s The Protector’s series focusing on a magical group of protectors and guardians known as the Mage. The Mage are a gifted species of people who source their power from the elements but their enemies-the ghouls-suck the life force and power from the mage to survive. In PROTECTOR the ghouls, with the help of mage power, have developed a weapon that connects with the mage and in doing so, will slowly deplete their victim until nothing is left. In PROTECTOR firefighter Edie Lang and pilot Josh Campbell battle forest fires as well as each other in a struggle with life and death. Returning from a recent fire, both will find themselves weakened and unable to remember certain aspects of their latest job. It is only when they begin to piece together their memories do they uncover a possible cause to their shared illness and loss of power. Josh and Edie have a past-one that is mired in miscommunication and Josh’s reluctance to accept Edie as a woman capable of fighting fires. His worry and need to protect carries onto the job when he is unable to separate the woman that he loves from the fire fighter entering dangerous territory. As well as battling the unknown cause of their loss of power, Josh and Edie battle each other in a test of wills. PROTECTOR is a welcome storyline that leads into Nancy’s next instalment in The Protector series. Dr.Stefan Harper is the resident Mage physician who has been unable to extinguish the memories of the woman he had given up years before, and in Protector, there is a build up to his story. Protector is a fast paced, interesting storyline about two strong willed and capable heroes, who have issues of control when it involves the other. When it looks likes neither is willing to compromise, one must step forward and relinquish his need to protect above all else. see all of my reviews at : thereadingcafe(dot)com
