Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels, Book 3)

Magic Strikes - Ilona Andrews I don't read paranormal fiction much, but I absolutely love the Kate Daniels series. I love the worldbuilding, the kick-ass protagonist, Kate's voice, and the slow pace of the romance. I love how Kate's relationship with Curran has been slowly developing over the series - the slow burn is believable and enjoyable. I like a romance that isn't rushed. And the action and plot of is excellent - love the arena action and the battle scenes.
