Magic Strikes -  Ilona Andrews

Good god I LOVE this series. Kate is changing as a character. She is no longer keeping people away and now has made friends. This is new to her and you feel the struggle she has with herself on this issue. Curren "Beast Lord" is as sexy as ever and pursuing Kate in his own way. The ending makes me smile every time. Full Review to come.
