Trying to save her friend from being killed, Arabelle Bahari almost takes Gareth’s life in self-defense. They come together in anger and have explosive sex. She is a specialist in Egyptian language and is asked to participate in deciphering information with Master Magickers, who have stronger magic. Knowing there can’t be anything more between her and Gareth because of his arrogance, she is determined to completely forget he exists.

Gareth, Earl Moore, is a man whose friends and colleagues call him cold and calculating until he meets up with a woman who takes his breath away….Arabelle. Once he gets a taste of her, no other woman will do for him. Despite how he feels about his new beloved, he still has to resolve his anger issues from being dumped by his ex-fiancé for another man before he can pursue her.

The Dark Desires of the Druids III: Desert and Destiny is an exciting story leading from the shores of England to the desert of Egypt. This time, we have all of the Master Magickers together to solve a mystery surrounding a jeweled box that came into their possession. The group of masters solved the problem of where the information is to help them find out more about their ancestors and find that they have to take a voyage abroad, which is not what they wanted to do.

An old enemy, Corwin the Hunter, is back again and making accusations that Arabelle is performing magic to anyone who will listen. After he kills Arabelle’s friend, Richard, in a warehouse then follows them to make an attempt on her life sets Gareth’s teeth are on edge. He knows he is going to have to do something about the enemy and instead gets injured.

Isabel Roman has done a wonderful job of writing about ancient Egypt, the Magickers power to control the flow of life, and how love will survive. I especially love the fact that she added a twist to the couple’s lives without their knowing. Once the group retrieved the book they were looking for, I felt as though there should be something more, and hope that Ms. Roman will make me a happy camper continuing this series.
