Meet Izzy. She is a successful woman, providing for herself quite nicely. She owns her own home and a shiny, silver Audi (fun!). She goes on a date with Mystery Man, Zander, and it takes a turn for the worst.
Enter Bain. Bain is a Fae Warrior, and Immortal Brother, sworn to protect the human race from the Dark Fae wreaking havoc on the world.
He's arrogant, and she's... spicy!
I love this paranormal world that Magen has created! There are a lot of other supernatural creatures in this book, but she creates her own twist on an overly done genre, making it her own, and had me hooked in a few short pages. And this twist has nothing to do with sparkling vampires, making it even more likable.
I love Izzy's personality. She is feisty and outspoken. She is my kind of girl! I'm a little sad, actually, that she is a fictional character, because she and I could be great, life-long friends. She is quick witted and keeps arrogant Bain on his toes and second guessing himself. They are great compliments to each other.
Ultimately, I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars, only because there were some editing issues (but honestly, when are there not editing issues in any Indie book?). The story itself gets 10 stars... LOVED those love scenes ;-)
Q&A with Magen McMinimy
Just for fun :-)

BR: What were you doing when you got the idea to write this series? Or what inspired you to write it?
MM: It’s actually a little funny, the first series I wrote was a Paranormal Romance about vampires, and I loved it. But I knew when I finished that series I want to write something different. I had a character in mind that was this gorgeous, chiseled, sexy man who was arrogant and hated vampires, thus Bain was born. The very first thing I wrote in this series was the conversation between Bain and Izzy when she asks him if he’s a vampire.
BR: How do you react to a bad review for one of your books?
MM: Naturally no one wants to hear that someone doesn’t like what they have spent months pouring their heart into. However I accept that not everyone will love my books and I try to look at any criticism as an opportunity to grow.
BR: What is your “poison” of choice while writing, to help get the creativity flowing?
MM: I have a crazy writing mix that I listen to. I call it crazy because it covers most genres; Country, 80’s, love ballads, pop, some heavy metal and even classical.
BR: Do you and your husband ever try out any of the spicy scenes in your books? Seriously, inquiring minds want to know!
MM: *smiling like the Cheshire cat* Uh . . . maybe ;)
BR: Do you ever write naked?
MM: haha not completely, but I do all my writing while in the bedroom.
BR: Have you ever been to a Turkish prison?
MM: Nope. Now I’m curious.
BR: I’m sure you are! But if I told you, I’d have to kill you. What is your favorite romantic comedy and why?
MM: I don’t watch much TV or Movies and when I do, I don’t watch comedies. I’m a sucker for all the comic based movies (I’m also in love with Thor ;))
BR: If you woke up as an animal tomorrow, what would you want to be?
MM: Ooh that one’s hard . . . a year ago I would have said something like a tiger or wolf. But after writing Immortal Blood, the thought of flying seems pretty amazing, so I’d have to say a Hawk or Eagle.
BR: If you could switch lives with someone, dead or alive, for one day, who would you be?
MM: Izzy LOL
BR: I’d have to agree with you! I wouldn't mind if Bain turned my scent a little spicy! ;-) Dog or cat?
MM: Dogs ( I have two and they are my full sized babies) I had an amazingly cool cat at one time and I could never replace him, so no more cats for me.
BR: You are terminally ill and have 3 months to live. Where would you most want to go that you have never been?
MM: Russia or Italy, either one would be good with me.
