Derik’s Bane (2005)

Backcover Synopsis: It’s always good to have a psychic around – except when she tells you the world will soon end unless you do something about it. For werewolf Derik Gardner, “doing something about it” means heading to sunny California and destroying the reincarnation of possibly the most powerful sorceress in history: Morgan Le Fay. But the beautiful – and slightly ditzy – Dr. Sara Gunn has no idea that she is Morgan Le Fay. Her masses of wild red curls and crystal blue eyes make knocking her off an unpleasant prospect for Derik … and his half-hearted attempts don’t meet with much success. So if he can’t kill Sara, he’ll join her, on a cross-country odyssey to change her fate, confront a medieval evil – and get a little something on the side…

This is pure entertainment, a nice mix of romance and action. There isn’t much to talk about, the book is rather short, and while the plot is okay, you don’t want to look too deep into some things that don’t make much sense if you think too much about them. What it does very well is to entertain, mainly the chemistry between the two main characters feels right, even if at times it border at being silly or over the top. Seeing them chatting with each other is fun. If you want an easy and fun read, try this one.
