Jack Hunter is a wizard who gets his supernatural power from killing others; he meets up with fellow wizard Thom Riggs, the strongest sorcerer Jack’s ever known. At a coffeeshop, the Universe gives them their murderous assignments. This time he’s directed to kill a woman named Kim Reynolds, MD.
About to make his move, Jack is thunderstruck by her—there’s more to the beautiful redhead than meets the eye. There’s something different—something dangerous—about Kim.
Instead of just blindly accepting his assignment, Jack digs deeper. He uncovers not only a web of deceit where his closest allies are his hidden enemies, but he also finds he’s fallen in love.
Jack confronts his enemies, risking his own life to save the woman he now loves. But the game of magick is as layered with twists and turns as the game of love, and he loses both. Jack is killed. At first. Because of Kim’s special abilities, Jack’s able to impart his wizardry to her as a dying gesture. Kim’s powers, now combined with Jack’s, lets her defeat the greatest wizard Jack’s ever known. With her new power, and as a medical doctor, Kim revives Jack: Jack’s love for his troublemaker, Kim, is just as undying.
