Aidan Loriel is a powerful necromancer from Aurora, a realm outside of earth.  Aidanís personal journal containing his powerful spells is missing, but the protection spell he placed on it will ensure that it will return to him, along with the one who uses it.

Evan Bartholomew is a young gay man living in Virginia.  He is a pagan who dabbles in magic.  Evan purchases a fascinating spell book containing a picture of Aidan in it.  Evan is mesmerized by him.  After casting a love spell to find the man of his dreams, Evan falls asleep and awakens in an unfamiliar place.

Aidan and Evan are immediately drawn to each other, but itís against the law for them to be together.  Aside from that, King Rakas wants Aidanís powers, King Tordis wants Evan in his bed, but Queen Pretore would rather see him dead.  Evan is definitely not in Virginia anymore!

Magic, mayhem and forbidden love fill the pages of Magic and the Pagan.  Its creative storyline is often amusing or enchanting, tender or hot.  Aidan won my heart from the beginning and Evan is a likeable guy.  There is a strong sense of desire and comradery between Aidan and Evan, but it did take a bit for me to feel that connection between them though.  Magic and the Pagan is another well-written, and creative story by Mychael Black and Shayne Carmichael.
