To find her destiny, she must trust him with her life…and her heart.

Jackson Holt makes a decent living as a private investigator in New Orleans, home of one of the largest underground supernatural populations in the United States. He and his partners have never met a case they couldn’t crack…until a local bar owner asks him to do a little digging on her newest hire.

New Orleans is the fourth destination in as many months for Mackenzie Brooks, a woman on the run from a deranged stalker. After all, any man who shows up on her doorstep claiming to be her destined lover has more than a few screws loose. But crazy doesn’t explain why he always finds her no matter how far she runs.

When her well-meaning boss puts a PI on her case, Mackenzie comes face to face with the incredible truth: magic is real, and whatever spell has kept her hidden and separate from the paranormal world is rapidly deteriorating.

With time running out, she has no choice but to trust Jackson as he struggles to uncover the truth of her past-and her destiny.


Mackenzie is afraid. She is being hunted and she thought it was just because of a broken hearted lover that she didn’t endulge. Little does she know that it is something more than just being a girlfriend.

Mackenzie running through 5 states eventually meets Nick Peyton who owns a barn in New Orleans. Working as a bartender, Mackenzie eventaully meets Jackson and that night, everything changed for Mackenzie. Without genting into too much detail, Mackenzie now discovers that everybody and everything is not as it seems and a big aspect of her life is about to be told to her that will change everything she believes in.

The characters were developed enough for my taste. The plot and story has its own twist to it and I enjoyed every page of it. Though the romance side and connection between Mackenzie and Holt was quick, that’s really not an issue for me with Crux since it worked. Not into these kind of covers though but that’s just me. 🙂 Crux is the right combination of paranormal romance. Crux is the first in a series and has proved to be a strong and amazing read. I can’t praise it enough to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Nice combination of ass kicking scenes, romance and mystery. Crux can be read as a stand alone in my opinion and it is a great intro to what seems to be a great series to follow.
