Why I Started This Book:
When I was reading the LibraryThing list of Giveaway on the end of July this book caught my eye, cause it blends two things that I always read: witchs and uniform mans.
Marcie Hollis is a Wiccan, who’s always played by the rules. That’s until she meets Dan McKenzie, a man who she believes to be the knight in shining armor she’s been searching for all her life. However, Dan’s not who he appears to be. He lures Marcie into his world of lies, greed and high-grade marijuana. But fate intervenes on Marcie’s illicit trip for Dan to New Orleans, when she’s robbed in a crowded airport. The thug not only makes off with her suspicious backpack, he knocks her down, her head slams on the concrete floor, and she loses her memory right in the path of DEA agent, Sam Carre.After a six-month investigation into the activities of a big time drug dealer crumbles, the same day damming evidence is found stuffed in Sam’s locker – evidence suggesting he’s the notorious leak on the team, Sam jumps on the first plane home. Arriving in a crowded airport in New Orleans – his reputation and loyalty are in question. But even though Sam’s tired, disillusioned and haunted by a past that gives him no peace, he stops to help an attractive stranger when she falls in front of him. Then in an act of chivalry, he takes her to his home until the police can identify her. When questions arise about Marcie, and what she’s involved in, the answers lead them to the exact felons Sam investigated in the Pacific Northwest.
When her illusive memory returns, this complex case pushes them both to explain the unexplainable, and leaves Sam with a haunting question. Was she set up, or was this a game she played? Sam’s forced to make a choice, walk away from the attraction that connects them, or risk losing everything.
At the beginning I didn’t like Marcie, because I just don’t get her, she knew it was wrong still she did it, but all for the choices.
I loved Sam, he’s romantic in a very manly way, gentle, idealistic.
He works for a special time, and chose to fight for the good side. He didn’t had a good childhood, but he chose to fight the good batles.
Sam has a best friend, Jesse, they grew up at the same neighborhood, and bout are cops.
Marcie spirit guide has a beautiful story and so sad, couldn’t help but shed some tears, very emotional times.
I have to say I was chearing for them to be together, cause after I get to know Marcie and her motives the things kinda of changed pictures, and I was on her side completely.
Sam was so good with Marcie, and they have a chemistry.
These are my…Sam what are we anyways?” This time she passed him the ball, before her throat jammed up.
He stood stone faced, giving nothing away through those shadowed tight eyes.
“We’re involved.” His arms remained crossed in front of him.
“Hmmm, well sonny I guess that’d be another word for sleeping together, boyfriend, girlfriend, shacked up. Afraid I heard it all in the thirty-six years I was a schoolteacher down south.
