D’Anu witch Silver Ashcroft fully acknowledges that she walks a fine perilous line by practicing gray magic, offensive magic that forces an opposing will on others. Should the members of her coven ever find out about it they will kick her out. However, practicing gray magic is the only way she can find her missing sister and stop the Balorites priests, an evil coven of wizards, from preying on the white witches across San Francisco. She has seen and done much in her quest to rid the city of their dark presence. If she doesn't her coven will be next.

Then she discovers the Balorite problem was much bigger than she thought and does the unthinkable—she summons aid from the Otherworld. When a gorgeous hard-bodied Fae warrior swoops into her life offering her help, and oh, so much more, Silver prepares for the fight of her life.

Hawk is duty bound as a Tuatha D’Danann warrior to answer the call to arms and to remove the threat posed by the Underworld beings from Earth’s plane. Descended from the Fae, he responds to Silver’s alluring call for aid and gets more than anticipated from his visit to the mortal world.

Except there is far more at risk than either of them are aware. Not only do they fight for Silver’s coven but also for Silver’s very soul. Now to save the woman who has captivated his heart and soul, Hawk will have to break every rule or lose her forever to the Fae’s greatest enemy.

Forbidden Magic is a spellbinding, sexy, superbly written, dark fantasy. I couldn’t put it down and you won’t want to either. Cheyenne McCray’s fabulous plot and incredible skill at keeping readers engaged in every moment of the action. Longtime fans and newbies alike will be enchanted and swept away by this enduring tale of courage, love, passion, and magic.
