Book Blurb : Taken From Goodreads

He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too.

When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it. Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes, and Jericho Barrons, a man of primal desires and untold secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.


Book 2, Bloodfever leaves us with Mac with her eyes on the prize, the ever elusive 'Sinsar Dubh' reeking havoc on her senses.

The 'Sinsar Dubh', has taken it up a notch, it is smarter than you think, it yields power you would not wish to meet it. Barrons needs Mac to find it and get it. She is his personal OOPS detector inbetween running 'Barrons Books and Baubles' , which is her only normalcy in this whole mess that was her life.

Inspector Jayne becomes more prominant and has an interesting 'tea Party' with Mac. It's very hard to know who to trust when reading these books. Barrons comes across so mysterious and unwilling to answer questions. 'Dreamy eyed guy ' is back , I can't place him in this story. Barrons is starting to be noticed by other players more, something Barrons won't put up with. You learn a slither more about Barrons.

V'Lane naturally strikes again. He has upped it to bikinis and cocktails. I am beginning to think V'Lane becomes Mac's sunshine, his sifting rejuvinates her from all the dark and tenseness and manipulation and power Barrons pours onto Mac. V'Lane wants payment naturally.. he doesn't seem to not be able to resist Mac .He is the only one who does give Mac some answers. Can he be trusted????

Mac stands mainly on her own two feet in this book. Barrons is goodness knows where, doing goodness knows what as he won't say. Don't expect me home for dinner, or even expect me it's not how he rolls.

Dani 13yr old cussing Sidhe Seer is priceless as Mac's fiesty friend ,  they are like sisters. Dani believes in Mac and would do anything for her. She in her own right has a power. It's a shame Rowena at Arlington Abbey , Sidhe Seer headquarters doesn't trust and appreciate Mac for the power she is. Mac wants to belong to a group that understands her and to learn what she is. Rowena just doesn't want her . What does Rowena know that we don't know?  Book one has kept me questioning a comment made by Rowena regarding Mac in the bar on their first meet.
Rowena : "The dark Tuatha De! How dare you betray us! And you - an O'Connor, no less! I'll be having a word with your kin, I will!" It's the dark Tuatha De bit I am interested in..hmmmmm* wiggles eyebrows*
There are little one off comments made in these books if you look for them. I have noted them but LOL!! find it hard to piece together when Barrons won't answer any questions Mac asks him.

Barrons appears to continue his one way street with Mac. 'Voicing' Mac . Pain is part of his life, it will be part of her life. He pushes Mac to get results. Is he doing it for the good? It's so hard to tell. But you so can't help really!!!  liking the guy. He shows slithers of emotion before he shuts down. Is he that bad..or is it for Mac's sake? I think when his emotions are on the brink of being endanger of showing Mac another side of him he has to make put down , savage,  remarks to remind himself/stop himself. You feel him holding himself in check.

The 'MacHalo ' was the chapter that made me smile and 'feel' Barrons is okay before it gets quickly removed. He is always there for Mac but I just need him personally to be good. Or not evil but not too bad. He is constantly saving her showing slithers of emotion when he thinks she can't register it. It's my only bit of hope I have that it's not a oneway street , a means to his selfish end. He is lying and slanting the truth but why?

Mac seems to have a friend in Christian Mackeltar, but is he what he appears, can she trust him. Barrons, V'lane and Christian all seem to be interested in which other guy has got their wicked way with Mac. It's kinda a jealousy showing through . Mac repeatedly having to claim her innocence. All three guys snapping at her about who she has bedded.

Karen I noticed the Spear incident with Mac and Barrons......don't think I didn't see that :D

The ending of this book is just WOW!!!!!!!!!! what more can I say. Nothing,  as I will spoil. Karen likes to leave cliffhangers. WOW!!!!!!!!! maybe the reason I hunted the ebook down:D


He cleared his throat and stopped laughing. Then his gaze took a quick dart upward, fixed on my blazing MacHalo , and he lost it again.

I was wearing faded jeans, boots, and a snug pink Juicy T-shirt I got on sale at TJ Maxx last summer that said 'I'm a Juicy girl'
"I bet you are,"he murmured. "Take off your shirt,"  he said,..........

"What are you?" It burst out before I could stop myself. I knew it was wasted breath. "Why don't you just tell me and get it over with?"I said irritably.
"One day you'll stop asking me. I think I'll like knowing you then."

"I don't trust you!"
"And you think I trust you? You haven't been out of ......... diapers long enough to be trusted, Ms Lane! I'm not even sure you should be allowed to handle sharp objects!"

"Now tell me who you are."
"Vengeance,"  I said in a cold voice.

He shook me hard. "You have no business looking forward to pink cakes. That's not your world anymore. Your world is hunting the Book and staying alive. They're mutually exclusive, you bloody fool."
