Morgana Blackthorne, a Master Magicker, needs to get her followers under control. She knows that Lucian is looking for her family and when they meet, they quickly become lovers, their joining fiery and explosive. This makes them realize what the two of them are facing is more than a simple attraction. As much as Morgana wants him, she knows she will not be able to bear his children, and it forces her to attempt to push him away at every opportunity because she knows he wants them.

Lucien, Earl of Granville, has been sent to look for the other side of the Blackthorne family magickers in America, and finds Morgana after a few inquiries. It is almost love at first sight for them but they both try to resist the feelings and they fail miserably. The main reason he is there is to warn them of the Hunters in England who want to persecute all Magickers and to reconnect with the families in America. Despite the looming danger, Lucien refuses to leave Morgana’s side, deciding to make their relationship permanent.

The Dark Desires of the Druids II: Sex & Subterfuge is a fantastic story that continues with Lucian heading off after the death of his parents. Even in this book, the mystery surrounding him and the connection to helping other Magickers is secretive. The secondary characters lent a lot to the story with their deception and control over everyone.

Isabel Roman had done a wonderful job of telling this story about how strong the female line was in the American Blackthorne family. The simple fact that Morgana put everyone else before her wants and needs, including her trusted cousin, James, and friend, Takoda, told me she had a great concern for others. I cannot wait to dive into the next book to see what happens with the Magickers.

Thanks for the great review! Lucien is a favorite character of mine, and I really think he and Morgana compliment each other very well.
