Caitlin Abernathy hasn’t had time for men in her life. She’s been busy building her custom designed jewelry business. Professor Colin Stryker is a confirmed bachelor and happy to be so – that is, until he meets Caitlin. An amulet, a small jeweled dragon stolen from the Louvre in Paris five years ago, turns up mysteriously among Caitlin’s jewels. How did it get there among her lapis and turquoise and amber? Attempting to return the amulet to its home at the Louvre, Caitlin finds herself in desperate flight from thieves who will stop at nothing to regain the amulet they consider theirs by rights. Her life hangs in the balance. Can Colin save Caitlin and return the priceless artifact to its rightful home? ........................................................................................................ Reviews: The elegance and beauty of Paris as the central backdrop for the intrigue, adds color and movement to the drama. .. I was drawn back to my memories of Paris--the sights, sounds and aromas. It's these small touches that inject an extra dimension, a 'je ne sais quoi' into the mix. -- Heather, eyes2creviews.blogspot.ca Escape Rating A - Just as with all of this author’s work, Fatal Charm kept me going back to its mystery and adventure all day long, until I finally gave in and just finished it. I started at lunch and couldn’t stop myself from turning the last page after midnight. I just had to see how it all turned out. -- Marlene, https://www.readingreality.net/

Fun, and sexy
Sep 28, 2017
This is the first book that I have read by Blair McDowell and I enjoyed it tremendously. She has a way with words, they flow beautifully and build an amazing story. The way that she connects Colin, Aristotle, and Caitlin and describes their individual relationships as well as the individual relationships makes this book a very enjoyable read. Thank you NetGalley and Blair McDowell for letting me read and review this book.

One long chase, filled with suspense at every turn.
Sep 19, 2017
I have to say up front, I was sucked into the story and loved the book from the very opening pages. The good guys were really nice, and the bad guys were evil. The dance between the two was carefully played out in a way that kept the pace and action moving along nicely. The story was not formulaic, it had plenty of surprises and twists and turns. But characters did play their parts reliably. The plot was interesting, I've wondered and I'm sure I'm not the only one that has been curious about Read More
