Holly is a null – she makes all magic disappear when she is close by – and that has not made her very popular in the magic community. After being bullied for it most her life she now has a profitable business ‘null for hire’. After her mom disappeared after her birth, Holly was raised by her grandmother. She does not know her father.
And then one day her grandfather seeks contact. He wants her to help sorceror Cade McAllister with the murder case of a young witch. She has to nullify a curse. He also asks her work with Cade in exchange for finding her mother. Cade is not amused and wants Holly to quit the case. They are attracted to each other, but when he is with Holly he can’t use his powers. As Holly says, they are on different sides of the magical coin.
I loved this story! Holly is a determined and sassy woman on a mission. And Cade… Cade.. yummy. I can’t wait for the next in this new series.
They call me an abomination. A mutant. A curse on their kind.
I don’t let it bother me. Much.
My name is Holly James, and what they say is true. I’m a freak of nature—a null. My mere presence zaps the magic from Others, rendering them powerless. That’s why they hate me. But here’s the kicker: I’ve found a way to profit from my lack of mojo.
Whether it’s acting as a mystical wet blanket in a dispute between pyromancers or keeping hormonal shifters from changing during a sweet sixteen party, I provide a highly specialized service. For a hefty fee.
When a young witch turns up dead, clutching an amulet cursed with black magic, my estranged grandfather asks for my help. In return for nullifying the necklace, Gramps promises to find my missing mother—a witch who vanished after my birth. Of course there’s a catch. He wants me to assist Cade McAllister, the arrogant sorcerer in charge of investigating the case.
Cade resents my existence, let alone my attempts to help. Still, I’ll do whatever it takes to find my mom. For my own peace of mind, I have to know what happened to her, and I won’t allow anything to get in my way. Not even this crazy, irrational longing I feel for a hot sorcerer with the sexiest scowl I’ve ever seen.
