Stefan Harper swore an oath to protect the mage world and so was forced to hide his powerful magic from the beautiful Mundane woman he loved as a student. Backed into a corner one painful night long ago, he let Mel believe he’d been unfaithful rather than put her at risk by revealing who—and what—he was. Now she’s back, and the attraction burns hotter than ever.
FBI agent Camellia “Mel” Wray has vowed to avenge an old friend’s brutal murder. When the investigation requires forensic consultation by the only man she ever loved—and lost—one look at the gorgeous medical expert makes Mel realize he’s still impossible to resist—and still harboring a secret after all these years.
Caught in a deadly ghoul trap, Stefan faces a desperate choice. To save the woman he loves, he must take the risk he avoided years before and reveal the full extent of his powers. Will Mel accept the unbelievable and trust him? Or will love cost them everything?
