Blurb: Dr. Libby Drake is sensible and practical. To her more adventurous sisters, she’s always been the “good girl”. Certainly not the kind to attract the attention of a genius like Ty Derrick—until a tragic accident leaves the handsome biochemist at her mercy. Acting on her uncanny ability to heal, she stirs in the reawakened Ty his own long-suppressed desires for the woman who saved his life. But he’s not the only man with designs on Libby Drake. Her miraculous and selfless power has also captured the attention of a dangerously influential admirer. He’s pursuing the elementally gifted beauty for his own wicked purpose. And he’s willing to go to deadly lengths to make it happen.

Review: This has to be one of my favorite Drake sister books and while I don’t usually enjoy any scientific discussion, it goes right over my head, it was just such a part of their characters that I love it.
The cover is beautiful, the pace is steady and the plot is mysterious. I pretty much loved all things about this book, I felt such a strong connection to the characters and Tyson is right up there with Gregori from Dark Magic.
I especially loved the fact that he didn’t just accept the magic like the other men, he actually tried to figure it out. The mystery is such a good one, a good list of suspects and the culprit at the end is such a twist, I remember how shocked I was when he was revealed.
The romance is just so different here, I love it. When it gets started, it so…not awkward but just a little frustrating and cute. While he does love her, he does get so lost in his work and forgets but he’s so sweet about it and I love that Libby knows how he’s going to be and accepts him.
Ty may think that he has no social skills but when he talks to Drew and Joley, the way he is with them gives lie to that but it’s what he believes. I really love this couple, I love everything about this book and I’m excited for Hannah’s book.
Thank you for reading my review.
