Djinn and Tonic

Detective Carson is a honest hard working cop. When a case has him confused and not knowing what to do, he starts to think. The case is closed only because it has gone cold. No prof of anything. He knows Jack and Miriam are part of it and some how magic...of all things is involved. He has been coming to the bar after work in Detroit. Leila the newer waitress is another reason he is there. Over the past weeks they has gotten to know each other and the attraction is there but something else is too! As Carson goes over the case he has been fretting over, he gets pulled into a world that he never knew existed. Leila is part of a world, most humans no nothing of. She is a Ifriti. A middle eastern magical being similar to a Djinn!  Like most magical beings they can live for hundreds of years. Leila's father has made an arranged marriage. Leila hates the man who is a known murderer, bully, rapist, thug at best. Leila also knows that the deal her father made with him for her hand, also binds her family. If she refuses, her father and brother will die and her mother will be given to someone else. Leila has been fighting this for a long time. Her future husband to be, has now tracked her down and is going to take her back kicking and screaming.  What can she do? Carson walks into her life and steals her heart. The attraction is enormous and she knows she should not lead him on. What kind of future can they possible have? Her problem is she can't stay away, but she is afraid her world will kill the only man she has ever loved.

This is book 2 in the series. I love the fact it is located in Detroit. I know the area.  The story line with Carson and Leila, was touching and sweet. Carson a cop and Leila the daughter of a crime boss and a magical being can make for some major entertaining drama. Carson a lovable strong character, you just want him to know what is going on because he really has no clue for a while. Leila is a women torn. She want to just fall in love, with Carson, live in peace and have a happy life. She also knows the well being of her family is in her hands, how can she abandon them? The book has one awesome sex scene and a beautiful ending! I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good romance, mystery and a little action!
