Tabloid journalist Sydney Blair always believed there was more to the world then what meets the eye. So when a hot-tip leads her to interact with a "magickind", Sydney's determined to uncover all their secrets. When wizard Bram Rion and the rest of the Doomsday Brethren find out Sydney is sniffing around, and that she was given the Doomsday Diary as a birthday gift, they know something must be done. Caden MacTavish is the person to do this, a wizard who's denied his magical heritage for years, instead joining the US Marines in pursuit of a "normal" life. Now he's been summoned back by the Brethren, ordered to find out just how much Sydney knows and to shut her up. But when Caden meets the fiery redhead, sparks between them fly and he's soon in way over his head. Caden knows he must do everything possible to protect Sydney from Mathias and his desire to get his hands on the diary, even if it means risking his heart.
