Blurb
Lose yourself in the world of The Keepers, an exciting new Paranormal Romance trilogy from Rae Rivers.

“Don’t ever look for me again, Archer.”
His mouth curled into a smile. “Game on.”

Central Park. Sienna Beckham is out jogging in the autumn sun, feeling almost ordinary. Trouble is, she'll never be. She's on the run from her life as a powerful witch and the three Keepers blood-bound to protect her.

Evil is hot on Sienna's tail and Archer Bennett is searching for her, desperate to find her before they do. As one of her Keepers, he will fight to his death to defend her.

Sienna must return and defend her hometown, Rapid Falls – but she has to face the past and master her powers. And as forbidden feelings blossom between Sienna and Archer, will their love survive the ultimate war?

The Keepers: three strong and handsome warrior brothers, born to protect.

My Review
Sienna left her witchy past behind after a tragic lost years ago. She left everything behind including her three Keepers, the ones who protect her. Now the past has caught up with her and she will have to face the evil that has been haunting her. She will also come back into contact with her Keepers, one in particular Archer. Archer knows more about Sienna than anyone what he feels is more than protective for her. They are forbidden to love and stand to lose it all if they cross the line. Will they be able to fight the evil and their love or will love be worth the risk.

Sienna is a very powerful woman but she really doesn't want anything to do with her powers. She has to learn to use her new powers and soon. She loves her Keepers, family and her friends. She will do whatever it takes to protect them. She also has guilt eating her up on the inside. Archer is strong and very protective. He would do anything to keep Sienna safe from harm. He is also very hard headed and doesn't like to be fussed over.

I really enjoyed this book. From the beginning the action starts right away. I was confused a little at first at what was going on but the more you read the more you see what happened in the past to make Sienna and the others the way they are. I liked seeing Sienna working with her powers and learning what she could do. Having not used them she doesn't realize just what she can do. There is several fight scenes that are amazing as well. If your looking for romance you get that with Archer and Sienna. These two have a love that has been going on for years but they can't do anything about it for fear of what will happen and it's against the magic rules. I loved these two together. You also get to see some of the other Archers in this book and I look forward to what they will get into. I will say this book has some sad moments that will shatter your heart so be warned. This is packed full of magic, evil, love, heartbreak, action an more so I would recommend anyone looking for a great story with a magic to pick this up.

Excerpt

Sienna put a hand on Archer’s arm.  “I’m going to find Warrick and get him to talk to me so we can go home.”
  Archer responded by sliding both hands behind her lower back and pulling her tighter against him so that her body was flush against his.  She gasped at the sudden close contact and the intensity of his grip on her and tried to pull back to see his expression.
 “Just a minute more,” he whispered in her ear, keeping her in place as they swayed to the music.  Her body shivered in response, his breathy words scattering her thoughts in an instant.  
 “Careful, Archer, any closer and people will start thinking I’m your woman.”
 “You are my woman.”  
 She’d meant to tease him, to ease the sudden possessive grip he had on her, but when his mouth edged towards hers, the gentle scrape of his lips against her skin and his whispered words ripped a soft shudder through her.
 “No.”
 “Not yet.  In time, you will be.”
 She smiled against him.  “Confident tonight, are you?”
 “I call it like I see it.”  His fingers toyed with the seam of her dress at her lower back, and his lips hovered dangerously close to hers.  
 “You know we can’t.”
  “I’m not in the mood to please The Circle right now and besides, some of the best things in life are the things that are forbidden.”
 “What are we, Adam and Eve?”
 His face softened in a breathtaking grin and in a gentle movement, he released her, twirled her around, and drew her back to cradle her in a possessive hold that enthralled rather than annoyed her.
 She longed to throw caution to the wind and kiss him, take what he offered, and lose herself in this gorgeous man.  Screw the consequences.
 Instead, she opted for the safe route.  “Stop it, Archer.”
 “Scared to admit the truth?”
 “No.”
 “Liar,” he breathed against her lips before pulling back.  
 She blinked, trying to ignore the flash of desire that raced through her body and pretend her senses hadn’t just been overrun by pure male sexiness.
 Wow.
 “I should go,” she said, needing some distance between them.  After all, she was here for a reason and it wasn’t to spend the night in Archer’s arms – on the dance floor or otherwise.
 The silent motion of his head agreed with her, but she could see that he was worried.
She didn’t blame him.  Beneath her cool fa├žade, even she was worried.
 But she had a plan.  One she wouldn’t share with her Keepers just yet.
 And she hoped to hell it worked.
