Someone is killing witches in Coldwell. Voluptuous witch, Leila Barclay, isn’t expecting to be drawn to a sexy enemy wolf shifter, Nic Lobo and be targeted by a murderous sorcerer in the same night. Her savior is the very same wolf shifter who turns out to be a detective. To save her life, they exchange pieces of soul magic. Leila knows it’s forbidden, but she really wants to survive. Now she's irrevocably tied to the shifter and changing in ways she has never expected. Plus, she and her savior must catch the murderer, before he catches her.

Detective Nic Lobo is on the trail of the supernatural serial killer when he meets his mate. His taboo witch mate. He stops the killer from taking Leila's life, but now he has to keep her alive, stay away from his Pack and her Council, convince her they belong together, and catch her magical stalker. Failure isn’t an option because Nic has already lost himself in Leila.

Witches and shifters are not supposed to like each other so mating each other is out of the question, or is it? That is the question in Shifter Magnetism by Stormie Kent.
Witches are dying and Nic knows that something other than human has declared open season on them. He is determined to solve the crime even as he hides the supernatural nature of the dead. So when he meets Leila, he knows she fits the profile of the victims to a “T.” What makes it even worse; she fits him and his wolf to a “T” as well. But Leila is a strong female and hiding behind the new man in her life is just not going to happen. I loved Leila and Nic together is this story. Both characters were strong and well developed by Ms. Kent. Both characters were willing to look past their prejudices to work together. Mind you they had a wonderful incentive to do so but still, they tried to keep an open mind. And boy did I enjoy Nic. He was Alpha but holding back for his family. He skated the edge as much as possible even as he continued to do what was right. I loved seeing him learn to compromise with Leila. I also loved that Leila was willing to bend for the man who was quickly finding a place within her heart. Ms. Kent gave us a relationship that was well rounded and you wanted it to succeed. The passion, the respect, the growing friendship was obvious and added a wonderful depth to this story. This was my first time reading this author and I can say unequivocally that it will not be the last.
