Samantha knows her sister is in danger. But being only a half-Air witch, not a pure strain, their witch community has no interest in helping to find her. There is only one man who can, a local weretiger gangster she publicly insulted six months before. Dion Herbert is willing to help Sam, but the price is steep; sex with him if he finds and rescues her sister. More important, sex with him in a place as public as when she had humiliated him. Is she willing to risk her reputation and her business to get her sister back?

In this story, the different species, from werecreatures to vampires to witches, have taken over a part of the town as their own. Dion runs his family as well as a restaurant. He isn't the violent person she thinks he is and he's deeply in lust for her. She isn't exactly immune to him either, although she tries to be, which makes for several very interesting sexual encounters. Sam's character is interesting because while she wants to hate Dion, she has to learn to accept the kind of man he really is. Dion comes to learn all about obsession for a woman instead of casual encounters. So, while the sexual level is high, there is a real story here and I enjoyed it.

The writing is strong and you come to care about these "Underground" creatures. I did have to laugh at the term "vanilla humans" to define the rest of us. Use Caution: This is an intense erotic level book with public exhibition. If you don't like that kind of book, skip this one. I saw it more as a good story with some spicy sex scenes. It's worth the read.
