Lyrical Press / June 7, 2016 / $15.00 print, $5.99 digital
Simone Brightston knows she can beat the rap her enemies are pinning on her. An Irish witch is nobody's fool, and she didn't get to her position on the high council without serious power. But her cousins want her to hide out-and they somehow convinced her arch nemesis to play getaway driver.
Of all the men she's known, Nikolaj Veis is the hardest to intimidate. With his demon-dark eyes and his inscrutable beauty, he's as desirable as he is dangerous. And he knows better than to underestimate Simone. So when he pulls up on a roaring bike and tells her to climb on or fight it out, she grabs a handful of jacket and holds on tight. Running from the law may not be the smartest plan. But when it comes to Nick, hot pursuit and a blazing fast ride are exactly what Simone's looking for...
The past and the present collide in Rebecca Zanetti’s latest Realm Enforcers novel, Wicked Burn. Rebecca has been teasing us through two series about the past relationship gone wrong between Simone Brightston, a member of the witches’ Coven Nine council, and Nikolaj Veis, the brilliant strategist and second in command of the Demon Nation. Both in her Dark Protector series and in the beginning of the Realm Enforcers, we have heard many whispers about what must have been a tumultuous history for Simone and Nick, but we have waited impatiently for more than just hints why sparks (and tempers) fly when Nick and Simone are in the same room.
“Simone and I have a history…one I don’t want to discuss right now.”
In story after story, we have heard hints of the passion that is still burning between Nick and Simone and been left to speculate whether that passion would lead to further romance or simply bloodshed between the two of them.
