Synopsis: The Price Of Love

Nikki James is just an ordinary, risk-taking, psychically inclined private eye until she hooks up with Michael Kelly. Now she is something more: one of the few, the chosen, the magic-wielding undercover operatives of the Damask Circle, an organization protecting humanity from a rising tide of evil. She wants nothing more than to pass the Circle’s strict entry exams so she can get on with the business of planning her wedding to Michael. But she quickly realizes that buying a wedding dress is the least of her worries.

One hundred years ago, Michael Kelly hunted down and killed the sorcerer responsible for murdering his lover. Now the brother of that man is out for revenge, and he intends to destroy all that Michael holds dear in the process. When Michael is kidnapped, the trail leads Nikki to a dusty ghost town surrounded by a potent magical barrier, leaving her to battle a madman alone with only her wits, strength, and the one psychic gift she cannot fully control. And to make matters even worse, Michael no longer seems to remember who she is.

My Thoughts: 
Fourth and final book in the Nikki & Michael series and Keri Arthur kicks it up a notch. There's just more ... action, suspense, magic, fierceness, chemistry and the good vs evil battle kept my heart in my mouth.  

Nikki finally joins Michael as an operative of the Damask Circle, Michael kidnapped, Nikki wiped from his memories, clock ticking ...

Kudos to Keri Arthur for getting evil down pat, Kiss the Night Goodbye had the baddie with the biggest ick factor ... seriously made my skin crawl. 

In previous books Nikki & Michael's relationship has been weighed down with angst and frustration, not to mention eye-rolling and annoyance on my part. But in Kiss the Night Goodbye ... no eye rolling at all ;)
