Head Librarian, Francesca Barnes, has discovered a treasure cache of sorcery books in a secret room in the sub-basement of the old city library. When a monster starts attacking cats and then children, she uses the knowledge to track down and kill the beast.
This alerts the evil ones to the growing presence of a new gifted “Golden One” coming into her powers. Ryan, and his keeper Paul of the Order (the good side), are trying to track down this cache of books. Since Ryan is half-demon/half man, lacking a soul, he cannot trust himself around women, and especially not around sorceresses.
However, his horn-dog handler/keeper Paul takes off on a false lead, because this other woman is good looking and Ryan ends up investigating Chess (Francesca), keeping tabs on her, rescuing her, and before its too late, he is hooked/imprinted on Francesca.
This book was a quick enjoyable read, nothing taxing or extraordinary.
