by M.J. Putney

With richly imagined characters and compelling stories, New York Times bestselling author M. J. Putney has won dazzling praise from reviewers and readers across the country. Her spellbinding new romantic fantasy will sweep you from Wales’s mysterious forests to the glittering menace of Georgian London–and into a shattering rendezvous with fate.Heir to an ancient title, Simon Malmain, the Earl of Falconer, is well known among the Guardians, humans with magical powers derived from nature. Well known, but not always well loved . . . for those who enforce the law are rarely embraced by those whom they protect–and this is equally true whether the law is magical or mundane. A routine mission to confront a rogue Guardian who has misused his powers turns disastrous when Simon’s quarry, Lord Drayton, captures his pursuer in a transformation spell that can only be released by Drayton–or death. Aid arrives in the form of Meg, a fey young woman who first traps Simon, then frees him.As they flee together, Simon recognizes that Meg is also a victim of Drayton’s evil enchantments, and he restores her nature and innate magic. Though her memory is still clouded, she is freed at last from a shadowy world of fear and lost identity. She agrees to help Simon bring down Drayton. The need for each other’s magic binds them together–and releases the more ancient magic of passion. But desire cannot be satisfied until the rogue mage is stopped. For Drayton has a diabolical plan that will profoundly alter the course of Britain’s future. Even the combined power of Simon and Meg may not be enough to stave off catastrophe. Only a desperate act of love may win back the future–or destroy all they hold dear.

This second book in the Guardian series takes up the narrative of Simon Malmain and his story is gripping and well written.

The suspense is high in certain parts of the story and we keep our mental fingers crossed almost to the end that he and Meg till have their happy beginning and a long and happy life.

The magic is powerful and an intrinsic part of this book which will tie in with the last book in the series to make a powerful trilogy well worth reading.
Another amazing exciting book by Mary Jo Putney! Part of a series, so rad up and read them in order!
I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more by Putney. I like these characters and the plot of this story. It was nice to see characters from previous stories.
It is so cool to see science and magic find common ground. Very good books. Loved all three books in this series. Good Author
A great plot that kept me reading. I loved that Simon found his love interest. The Guardians are interesting to read about.
I read Mary Jo Putney's novels during my Regency period 20 or so years ago. I'm now into fantasy and noticed this title. This was really a disappointment. I almost stopped reading halfway through it was so bad, but I wanted to know in how she wrapped it up. I didn't read the first book in the series since the reviews were not as good as this one. I certainly won't now.

The problem seems to be that Ms. Putney is just doing it for the money and not from a writer's perspective of weaving story lines and characters together. The plot lines seemed contrived and just thrown in. I laughed out loud (not in a good way) at the unicorn and virgin. There were also discrepancies. Her heroine was strong and learning new skills until each time she ran into the bad guy when she seemed to regress. It wasn't very logical.

The author would also throw in random bits of history as if to make the book more worthwhile. It didn't work.
Magnificent! Great story from beginning to end! Ms Putney is such a talented author that keeps the reader enthralled from beginning to end! This book is a keeper!
Enjoyed the paranormal romance with an interesting heroine and hero.
