It's taken him eleven centuries to find the right woman. He's not about to lose her now.

Jessi St. James has GOT to get a life. Too many hours studying ancient artifacts has given the archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the glass of an ancient mirror. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six and a half feet of smoldering INSATIABLE alpha male.

Heir to the arcane magic of his Druid ancestors, Cian MacKeltar was trapped inside the Dark Glass eleven centuries ago. And when the Dark Glass is stolen, an ancient enemy will stop at nothing to reclaim it. For Jessi, the sex god in the mirror is not only tantalisingly real, he's offering his protection—from exactly what, Jessi doesn't know. And all he wants in exchange is the exquisite pleasure of sharing her bed....

Jessi St. James was toiling away as a grad student, working long hours, getting no sleep and being perpetually broke. Her life was turned upside down when she signed for a package for her boss & professor.

She had accepted some spelled items, in particular, a Magic Glass Mirror which had trapped a power druid Cian Mackeltar for over 11 centuries. When Jessi unknowning released Cian for a period, she involved herself in a battle between two powerful sorcerers, Cian Mackeltar versus Lucan Trevayne, former friends, now bitter enemies. The rest of the story was an adventure as Cian tried to protect Jessi and also defeat his arch nemesis once and for all.

This book was fun, passionate, funny and it brought back some of my favorite couples: Drustan & Gwen (book 4) and his twin brother, Dageus & Chloe (book 5). This book would have been the perfect ending and connection to the Fever Series. My only complaint was there wasn’t enough “tooping” language. I love hearing Phil Gigante saying “tooping a lass”.
