Mix together some romance, lots of magic, a fair amount of adventure and, let’s not forget, a healthy helping of sex and you have the recipe for the book Blood and Magic. It’s a fast paced read with an enticing storyline and excellent characters. Luke is an enforcer for the Coven and is tasked with finding witches that have turned dark. Abigail is a powerful witch who is supposed to take the child she is looking after to her parents who just happen to be important people in the Coven. The only problem is that her job is not all it seems and dark magic brings Luke and Abigail together. As they fight for their lives and those of others, their romance ignites and sparks fly.
This is the first book I’ve ever read by this author but after reading it I know it won’t be the last. It has a bit of everything in it to keep the reader entertained, including some pretty explicit sex scenes. There’s plenty of magic, lots of action and likeable characters. It’s perfect for an afternoon at the beach. The cover is romantic and fits the genre of the book perfectly and the editing and formatting worked perfectly on my ereader. This was such an enjoyable read and I can’t wait to read other books by Ms. Gimpel.
