Summary from Gazelle Books (where I source books from Medallion).
Irenee Sabel is a good witch, a sophisticated beauty, a member of Chicago's old-money elite, and a defender of an ancient code of ethics that prohibits the indiscriminate use of power attached to magical possessions. Responsible for confiscating and destroying hidden relics of the sorcery realm still employed by practitioners of the craft for self-centred reasons, she attends an ageing warlock's gala party to burgle his safe in search of an item of mystical mayhem. But when undercover agent Jim Tylan interrupts her break-in with an undisclosed search warrant from the Department of Justice and Homeland Security, she finds herself not only launched into an escapade after pieces of a legendary evil object but also thrown together with the agent destined to be her soul mate.
Long-term readers might be surprised that I picked up paranormal romance. However, I really liked the premise behind it. And in general it didn't have as high a paperclip rating as I expected it to. Which was nice. I'll definitely be reading more paranormal romance in the future.
Wild Magic is part of a series, but as far as I can tell from the other book summaries each can be read as a stand alone book. Description of the world/scenes/setting, and occasional story summaries
