SPELLBOUND IN HIS ARMS is a fantastic first novel by author Angel Sefer. Set in Greece, mostly on the island of Corfu, with some scenes in Athens (I was excited to find a short scene took place in Plaka, a historic neighborhood in Athens and my favorite spot when I vacationed there!). The author describes the Greek scenery beautifully (she is from there, after all), and the location is definitely a major player in the story.
The chemistry between the main characters, Jackie and Michael, is fiery and passionate right from the start, but what I really liked is that they were able to keep their heads to solve the mystery even as their relationship blossomed. Jackie is a feisty heroine, and nothing, even super-hot detective Michael Apostolou, is going to keep her from finding the truth about who is harming her family. There are plenty of bad guys and plenty of action in this book—perfect for a fast and fun read.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery with a good amount of romance. I look forward to reading more novels by this author.
