Former FBI Agent Erin Graysonís mission is to get close to international businessman Reese Champion. Champion is suspected of bankrolling a cult-like organization responsible for multiple murders. The fact that he is drop dead gorgeous means this assignment wonít be that much of a hardship. Erin has seen things that she canít believe are real. Her last partner was killed in front of her eyes by a monster. Under investigation by the FBI for the murder of her partner, Erin resigned and is now working for the Outfit, a covert agency investigating the Death Sabat cult. What Erin doesnít know is that she is also a Latent, an ancestor of one of the members of King Arthurís court. She is capable of becoming a Maja, a witch with incredible powers. All it takes is to have sex 3 times with a Magus, a male member of the Magekind.

Reese Champion has been the champion for the US for centuries. As a Magus and champion he is responsible for making sure that humankind doesnít blow themselves up. Itís an added bonus that the very tasty Erin Grayson is also a Latent. Itís been awhile since he has been with one and he is looking forward to a very good time. Oh, by the way, Reese is also a vampire.

Reese and Erin soon find out that they are pawns in a very deadly game between the Majae and the monster they imprisoned centuries ago. Now he wants revenge and will do whatever it takes to get it. The first step is to turn Erin and gain control of her power. Thatís where Reese comes in. They are put together to force Reese to transform her from a Latent to a powerful Maja, something that he doesnít want to do. Reese finds that he has no choice if they are to escape from their prison and warn Magekind of the threat to all they hold dear.

Reese and Erin are dynamite together. Funny, passionate, and sharp-witted; these two are a match made in heaven or at least the Mageverse. Erin is a strong, capable woman who knows what she wants and is not afraid to go after it. The only thing she wonít do is risk her heart again. Reese is strong, arrogant and mouth-wateringly sexy. But hey, when you are pretty much immortal you have every right to be. In a race to save Magekind and the rest of the world, Reese and Erin make some pretty tough choices, but in the end they are the winners because they found the one thing that transcends time and magic, love.

Master of the Night is another hot, sexy adventurous read from the talented Angela Knight. I have read this book 3 times and each time I am reminded just why I love this womanís writing. I can predict that we will be getting many more wonderful stories from her and I am looking forward to the next one, most impatiently.
