Missing diamonds and a killer on the loose…will a schoolteacher and FBI agent escape with their lives and hearts intact?
Lack of evidence means the acquittal of Niccolo Gueraldi’s favored killer for hire, Ashton Smythe. Having failed in his mission to avenge his partner, Serena Roarke, Agent Gabriel Spiller returns to Alabama to search in secret for 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 Serena's loss now more than ever. A secret meeting before Serena died left Lea with an ugly figurine and nothing but questions. And then the hang-up calls, death threats, and finally coming home to a trashed house remind her of Serena's warning.
With a killer 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 at what cost?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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.
