Confusing cover and title. I am trying to review Cherry Adair's HUSH, not Dangerous Magic which comes up but I checked the ISBN number.
This long, way too long story has good sex but is boring. I picked it up because of the magic "power" he was supposed to receive, stupid.
I liked the character and her magical vest, but since I have worn a weight vest all day that was 12 pounds, there's no way on planet earth she wore 18 lbs in the jungle without some LEAD in it to give it weight. In the end, I didn't enjoy the read good sex couldn't make up for improbability, which is why I'm swapping it.

This is the first of her books that I've read and I have to say I did enjoy it. For the most part. Since I don't know about adventuring and such, I didn't mind that she may have taken literary license with what would actually happen in the real world. After all, this is fiction. I did enjoy the sex scenes and the danger. The only part that I didn't care for was the surprise ending. First, I guessed it right off. Second, there wasn't a reason why the wife was so blood thirsty angry. So she was in love with a female and wanted money. Knowing her husband didn't love her and wasn't interested in money, as she should have if she knew him enough to be engaged to him, she would have saved everyone a lot of grief to just ask for money and go off with her lover. If she comes out with a Lodestone 2, I might be interested enough to read it. But it wasn't anything special enough to make me interested in any of her other books.
