Zerachiel is a retrieval expert, hired to get a cuff for the witch that inherited it instead of her twin brother. Amber doesn’t realize that she was making a delivery to the brother instead until Zerachiel tries to take the cuff from her and ends up kidnapping her to protect her from the hit team hired by the brother.

Retrieving Love was a fun book to read, though I would have liked to hear more about the underground world Ms. Lapthorne created. The sparks flew between Zerachiel and Amber, once they caught their breath. The attraction between them was instant and I could feel the emotions leaping off the page. Sometimes you just have that instant attraction to people as Amber had with Zerachiel, as well as an instant friendship with Melia.

The fight over the inheritance could have been taken from family dynamics everywhere. In this case, the cuff was imbued with magic that could have far reaching consequences. I like the way the author resolved the puzzle about Amber removing the cuff from her wrist.

Retrieving Love was an interesting, fast paced story and I am looking forward to reading more of the Urban Seduction series, as I found some of the secondary characters just as interesting as Amber and Zerachiel.
