The Shadow Guard. They are the darkest of Black Ops. A force operating outside the sphere of the CIA or FBI. Taking their mandate not from the U.S. government, but from magic. And sex.

SAHIR. Astrid Carlson is one of them, a mage on a mission. With her wispy blond hair and those long, long legs, she can make a man forget himself. Until it's way too late.

KUBRI. Jake Hammond is the only thing she needs, the human conductor who can focus all her strength, bringing her to a peak of power, or shattering her completely. Yeah, she's got a hundred or so years on him, but who's counting when there's an unstoppable assassin to take down—and unstoppable chemistry to take on. . .

    Starred review from February 14, 2011
    Whiteside (The Devil She Knows) offers a contemporary sleuthing tale that packs a solid punch of sizzling, magic-fueled eroticism. Astrid Carlsen, an FBI interpreter and a sorceress of the secretive and rules-bound Shadow Guard, hears the distant psychic scream of a woman being murdered by magic and feels compelled to investigate. Her longtime online gaming buddy Jake Hammond is the policeman assigned to the case, and once they meet in person, she realizes he's a kubri, able to recharge her magical energies with sex. They become an investigative team whose sparks in the bedroom create power strong enough to let them find and take on the perpetrators in both the mundane and arcane worlds. The mix of sex, magic, and action flows smoothly for a deliciously enjoyable read.
