This book has a little bit of everything. Its a unique twist on the Arthurian legend that most romance readers love to get their hands on. What HEA lover wasn't crazy over the legends associated with his knights and their gallantries? This book is focused on Merlin. Merlin is reincarnated into this time as Drake, but his powers are bound by the goddess Nimue. All he has are his memories and some wondrous fighting skills. You don't find out why Nimue wants him to suffer, but there really has to be a story behind it. She acts like a woman scorned and I'm sure a goddess in that frame of mind is a lot scarier than us mere mortals..lol. Because of Nimue, Drake has relationship issues. He falls in love with Merci but pushes her away.
Merci is a descendant of Morgan Le Fey, and has inherited her dark magic. She struggles constantly with keeping her dark magic under wraps, but it has a seductive pull. Drake breaks it off with her and she leaves Author's services to go out on her own to try and start over. The story begins with Author seeking her out because Drake is missing. Merci curses him but agrees to help. Even though her heart is shattered by his dismissal, she needs to know he is alright.
They are thrust together because of one goddess's vengeance, but may walk away with more than they ever though possible. This was quite an entertaining twist on the old legend and contains something for everyone!! I really enjoyed this read and hope Shannan continues with the series!! It was a quick, hot ride!!
