Series Starter "Freelance Magic," Book--Eight years ago, wizard Ashley Brandon thought his mentor was above the temptation to misuse magic. He was wrong, and the aftermath left him determined to guard his heart. When he's assigned to a task force protecting an ancient relic, he butts heads with the infuriating, charismatic Frederick "Charles" Greer. The man is completely unreasonable. And so is Ashley's gut response to his outrageous flirting. Greer was only supposed to temporarily consult on the task force, but his admittedly unorthodox views on team building put him at odds with Brandon, one of the most attractive, frustrating men he's ever met. The mission's success requires complete cooperation, so Greer makes the first move to ease the tension. An apology leads to bickering, which unexpectedly leads them to the bedroom. But as that tension shifts into something more fierce, a brush with the relic's power turns everything upside down. Leaving the mission--and Brandon's heart--in even greater jeopardy.
