Blurb: When Killian Barth, history professor, meets Blaine Genneau, quantum physicist, they ignite their own big bang. But Killian can’t pursue a physics professor—or a human. As the most powerful male witch in ten generations, Killian must bolster his dying race by reproducing—despite the fact that he’s gay.
Even a fling with Blaine is out of the question, because Killian has been told sex with humans drains his power. But if that’s true, why can young human Jimmy Janx dissolve spoons with the power of his mind? If Killian can sort through the lies he’s been fed, he’ll still face his biggest obstacle—convincing rational scientist Blaine to believe in magic.
With his ancient and powerful cat familiar, Aloysius, on his shoulder, Killian brings the lightning against deceit and greed to save Blaine from danger and prove love is the greatest power of them all.

Review: I have read a couple of this authors work and was not really impressed so when I was given this story I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to even give it a chance. However I will be the first to admit that this story rocked. I am talking rocked my entire world.
Killian is a very powerful witch who was basically being forced to marry a female. Now the problem was not only was he gay but the female witch didn’t want to marry him either, she was in love with someone else. That was all Killian wanted someone that loved him with their entire heart. However witches were told that if they had sex with humans that they would lose their powers.
When Killian met Blaine, the sparks flew the moment their eyes met. Too bad Blaine was human. Now I have never really been a fan of having females in a story, but let me tell you that she was a blast as well as Jimmy. I loved the twists that this story had going on. Although I could have done without the sex, power play and such. It felt like the author just threw it in for word filler. That was the only part that was a bit disappointing. Ok maybe Blaine’s reaction when he finds out Killian is a witch was a bit overdone. However there was one scene in this book that made up for all that.
Other than those reactions the story made my attention stand up. I hope that the next book is just as good. If the author keeps writing like this, then she will soon become a favorite, although I hope her sex scenes get a bit better. It is a fun, light, sexy little story that kept my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I had fun with it and can’t wait to read book two.
