Ryne is a troubleshooter of the magical kind. Her former
mentor, Anise, has gone over to the dark side and Ryne has
been given the task of capturing her. Ryne has been chasing
Anise for six years. Then she realizes that her favorite
cartoon character, Deke Summers, P.I., has a human soul
trapped inside him and she's pretty sure Anise is to blame.
Only two things matter: Can she free the soul from the
character and will that force Anise into a showdown? Oh,
and one more thing. Can she survive a battle with Anise and
keep her own soul safe from the dark?
Deke and Ryne are two average people in unusual
circumstances. Of course, you would expect that with magic
involved. But this is a totally new take on the magic
scene, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Deke may have been
caught in "toon" land for over four years, but his machismo
has remained unscathed. Yet he's tender at the same time
and Ryne is strong without appearing masculine. Good
characters, fresh storyline and magic. I liked it. You
will, too. A good read.
is a magical troubleshooter, sworn to protect the innocent
from being harmed by magic--and she's been chasing Anise,
her former mentor, for six years.
Deke is a private investigator who knows
something key to defeating Anise. But Anise cast a dark
spell over him, and even though Ryne has managed to
temporarily lift the curse, Deke can't remember what it is
that he knows.
Ryne has sworn to never get involved
with a human, but Deke is sexy, charming, brave, and
irresistible--and as Ryne and Deke are pulled further into
Anise's evil schemes, it's harder and harder for Ryne to
resist the attraction.
But dark magic has its own attraction, and in order to
defeat Anise and lift Deke's curse permanently, Ryne will
have to risk following in Anise's footsteps and succumbing
to the lure of the darkness…
