Published November 9, 2015
A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...
Wanting her was one thing. Keeping her was another...
Serenity Danssaert was already in way over her head. Not even her MI6 training or her powers as one of the seven Pleiades witches is going to save her sister. Then Alexi Jovec shows up. A secret operative working for unknown forces, he's impossibly sexy and dangerous...and the guy who bailed on Serenity after a red-hot, racy night.
So bonding to him as her destined—the One—is so very wrong.
While Alexi’s need to own Serenity—body, soul, and beyond—is nearly unbearable, it's also forbidden. He's the last man who could ever be her destined. Besides, Hades's right-hand man cannot bond with a chosen Pleiades witch. He may be the one man who can protect her, but she can never be his to keep.
Alexi is a reaper who has been Serenity’s guardian angel for the last decade. He notices that Serenity has been taking risk this past week and wonders why. Serenity is a Pleiades witch who is suppose to be breeding the next generation of witches. She can’t seem to find her mate- he is expected to be a Sentry druid. She instead lusts after Alexi and does special ops missions. These missions have made her a target, as does her status as a Pleiades witch. When a price goes out for her head, Alexi must find out why. He must also protect her, at all cost.
Serenity’s little sister has been kidnapped. It is up to her to find out who the kidnappers are and save her sister. She is all the family Serenity has left. Serenity is willing to give up her own life for that of her little sister. Alexi is not so willing to lose Serenity- her sister would be a poor replacement for her.
This story is told in dual perspectives, it flips between Serenity and Alexi. Alexi’s voice is more entertaining than that of Serenity. The story centers around their relationship or lack there of. Yes, saving her sister and getting the price off of her head are always at the forefront but their relationship is the driving force of the story. While their desire is obvious, their trust of each other is not. Both are keeping secrets- that could get either of them killed.
His Witch to Keep is the second book in the Keepers of the Veil series. I recommend reading the first book before reading this one. Yes, the main characters are different but the first book has more world building in it. An entertaining read, if you have time to add it into your reading pile.
