A straight-laced policeman. A lighthearted thief. A murdered millionaire.
Fox shifter Malachi steals for one of the biggest crime rings in New York City. But when he witnesses the murder of a millionaire, the only person who can keep him safe is Dr. Owen Yates, forensic hexman for the Metropolitan Witch Police—and Malachi’s witch.
Owen is horrified to discover his familiar is an uneducated thief. Even worse, Malachi threatens to unleash Owen’s deepest desires…desires Owen can’t act upon, as he’s destined for an arranged marriage to secure the Yates family fortune
Their agreement: Malachi will be Owen’s lover as well as his partner, until the day of the wedding. But as their hunt for the murderer carries them from teeming slums to Fifth Avenue mansions, Owens begins to realize Malachi commands his heart as well as his body.
With dark forces drawing ever closer around them, Owen must decide whether to bow to the demands of duty, or to risk everything for the man he loves.
I love, love, love this series! Hexmaker was an immersive experience. Everything was well detailed from the streets of old New York to each character.
There is lots of action and mystery as well as bedroom loving with a little D/S play. I loved both Mal and Owen. Cocky Mal, the thief with a heart of gold, and studious Owen, who wanted to do right by his family at the expense of himself.
I loved the brief glimpses we get of former characters. They were worked well into the story and made the world interconnected.
Although we get some well used tropes: marrying for money to someone they don’t want and The Big Misunderstanding, they are used well and add to the story.
I will definitely continue with the series and this one goes on my favourites shelf! As a final note, be sure to read the Authors End Note for some interesting tidbits on the book and time period.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
