Book 6 in the Urban Seductions series. Julian Sherwyn has always been solid, dependable, completely unflappable, even when his eyes were opened to the magical world hidden behind the human one. Nothing ruffled him-until his last mission brought him into contact with Olivia Congreave. Wild, sexy and the most desirable witch he's ever met, she fires his passions and that wicked grin of hers has stolen his heart. Liv is drawn to Julian. He radiates strength, and for her there's no more potent aphrodisiac. Working together, forced to rely on each other, burning up the sheets comes all too easily. But dependable though Julian may be, Liv is reluctant to trust her heart to his hands. A Romantica(r) paranormal erotic romance from Ellora's Ca

Olivia Congreave is a tracker and a very sexy witch.  Olivia came into contact with the team of Enforcers and human cops when they were investigating what turned out to be her best friend.  Even when Olivia was trying to keep her friend safe, she was attracted to one of the team who visited her.  Now that investigation is over and her best friend is part of the very team that came looking for her.  Olivia is drawn into the investigation and she is more than ready to put her talents to the test and to also get just a bit closer to Julian.

Julian Sherwyn is a human cop who has experienced the paranormal ever since he became part of a test team that mixed Enforcers and human police.  Julian has loved the experiences and how effective the team has been.  Now he has one more reason to be happy with the team, when an investigation introduced him to Olivia, one of the sexiest witches he has ever met. 

Julian and Olivia team up, along with his partner and her best friend, to find what has been advertised as a partial antidote for a new drug that is harming both the magical and the humans.  With Olivia’s tracking gifts, they not only confirm who has the so-called antidote, but when things go crazy, fast thinking has them leaving with a sample of it.  The team believes they finally have the upper hand on this drug that is hurting so many, but that doesn’t last long when their side is attacked.  Tempers are getting short and so is the time to locate who has the drug antidote now and what they want with it.  While all this is going on, Olivia and Julian discover their attraction is much more and only want the opportunity to explore just where it can lead them, but first they have to finish this part of the mission.  Will Julian, Olivia and their unique team be able to track down what was lost before anyone else is harmed?

An attraction becomes a deep passion while danger and suspense abounds in Tracking Desire.  I am loving how every member of this team is discovering their true love all while working on stopping a drug that is harming both their societies.  I knew that Olivia would be a smart and determined woman when I first met her while she was protecting her best friend.  She more than confirmed that while she was helping Julian and the team.  I was so happy to see that Julian was going to get his love because he had been so supportive of his other team members while they found theirs.  The passion was hot and the suspense was very intriguing from the beginning to the end.  Watching Julian and Olivia discover just what they found with each other had me smiling, even when their mission made things a bit dicey.  Tracking Desire is loaded with red-hot passion and lots of suspense and danger; the perfect mixture to keep you flipping the pages.

Kelly Robbins works in the archives, mistress of the magical world's many mysteries. But she has a secret herself-she's also a cat burglar, playing the game for the adrenaline rush that runs through her when she slips into the shadows with some forbidden trinket. Matthias Kestell is a Tracker on the other side of the law, able to sense the power each magic user holds within them. When he and Kelly join forces to steal an antidote to a magical drug that is poisoning the streets, he is bewitched and seduced, instantly smitten with her. Even though Kelly now finds herself working with the enemy, Matthias has a magical charm all his own. As heat burns between them, she begins to realize this wizard could provide even more of a physical thrill than theft-and, given the chance, he could steal her heart. A Romantica(r) paranormal erotic romance from Ellora's Ca

Kelly Robbins is living a dual identity, one as a respective worker in the magical archives and the other as a cat burglar with an impressive record.  Because of some unusual abilities, Kelly isn’t worried about being caught in her hobby.  That ends the day she finds herself face to face with a Tracker.

Matthias (“Matt”) Kestell is one of the best magical trackers around.  Matt has been able locate even the trickiest magical user with his abilities, so when he is assigned to find this cat burglar who might be able to help his unit in a matter, Matt easily agrees.  But then he discovers that there is nothing to track, nothing at all.  Matt knows about the rare few magical users who leave no essence and decides that isn’t going to stop him. He’ll use other ways to track down this woman. 

Kelly agrees to work with Matt when she has no way to deny who and what she is; although, she isn’t so sure about working for the law as their cat burglar.   It seems a bit backwards, but Kelly has realized that Matt could probably convince her to do almost anything.  The lust and passion that sprang up between them the minute they laid eyes on each other is another factor in their partnership.  Matt and Kelly have to find out who has an antidote to a magical drug that is on the streets and harming magical and human alike.  Finding the threads and clues to a network that is motivated solely by money and locating the antidote brings a shimmer of suspense to the flaming passion Matt and Kelly have.  When their mission is over, will that passion be enough to keep them together or will their past rule these two brought together by the law?

An enforcer of the laws and a confirmed lawbreaker find a passion that will bring one of them to the other side of the law in Seductive Tracks.  Kelly and Matt learn very fast that love doesn’t care what you do with your lives when it’s meant to be.  Seeing Kelly flaunt the rules because she could brought a smile to my face when I saw that she did it as a lark and didn’t really profit from her heists.  Seeing Matt’s surprise that he couldn’t track Kelly down the normal way had me laughing, but I soon saw that he was a man determined to fulfill his mission.  I loved how fast Kelly and Matt came together and were able to team up in order to help both the human and the magical communities.  I foresee a very interesting future for this tracker and cat burglar combo – one filled with passion, suspense and adventure. Seductive Tracks is an erotic and suspense filled journey as a newly reformed cat burglar falls for her magical tracker and they become one unbeatable team – professionally and in love.

As part of new and elite team which has members who are human police and agents with paranormal gifts, Angelina “Flame” Harling, a strong witch, has enjoyed working with her fellow teammates and how fast the various team members became a unit.  But there is one specific team member that Angelina would like to get a whole lot closer to and she has just been partnered to him.

Bradley McKinnon Worthington IV, known as “Blade” is one of the paranormal enforcers who is now also part of the new police team.  Blade has known Flame for a while but he has never let the passion he has felt show to anyone and especially not to Flame.  However, when they are teamed up and after one intense mission, Blade and Flame finally let their passions free.   That interlude just seems to strengthen their partnership as their current job turns nasty.

The unit has been on the hunt for ring that has developed and is running a new drug that has serious magical aspects and is also killing people left and right.  The combination of human police and paranormal agents is working well on this mission with all the different knowledge and contacts they share with each other.  However, just when it seems that the team is much closer to capturing the ring members, the unit is broken up with no good reason.  While this development re-assigns the police members of the team, it frees the paranormal members to continue the investigation.  Blade and Flame are continuing to track down and get information on the drug ring members with some help from a new source.  As Blade and Flame find the answers and discover who is behind the new drug, the passion and danger swirls around them.  When it times to take down the drug ring, it’s all hands and team members on deck and the successful mission leads to high corruption.  After their successful partnership in bringing down the drug ring, Blade and Flame are ready to face their passion filled future together – a future that might just hold bright things for all the team members.

When a strong witch and a paranormal enforcer are teamed up, it’s their passion that leads the charge.  Blade and Flame learn that the most successful partnerships combine respect, friendship and love in Enforcer Ensnared.  I enjoyed watching as Blade and Flame explored just where their feelings would go while completing their mission of destroying the drug ring.  I also loved how as their passions increased so did their working partnership.  I could see that this new tie would only increase their abilities.  After all, the best partners seem to know what the other is thinking or how each other will act instinctively.  By the end, I could see that the future was extremely bright for Blade and Flame and I truly hope that Blade’s idea comes to fruition and the team finds a way to be together again.  Enforcer Ensnared has suspense, paranormal aspects and passion – a perfect trifecta in my opinion.
