Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews
Publication Release: July 31, 2012
Some people have everything figured out — Andrea Nash is not one of those people. After being kicked out of the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea's whole existence is in shambles. All she can do is try to put herself back together, something made easier by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend, Kate Daniels.
When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano — the male alpha of Clan Bouda and Andrea's former lover — die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate ... and must work with Raphael. As her search for the killer leads her into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta, Andrea knows that dealing with her feelings for Raphael might have to take a backseat to saving the world ...
Oooooh! I can't wait for this to be released. I'm a HUGE fan of the Kate Daniels series. Ilona and Gordon are one of my favorite authors. This story is mainly based on Kate's best friend - Andrea (the gun wielding marks-woman) and Raphael her hot on again off again lover....hopefully soon to be officially mate. It takes place around the same time of Kate and Curran's story in the short e-book - Magic Gifts. Ilona and Gordon are hosting ARCs giveaways on their blog (click here), they only a few so go sign up if you want one!
