O.M.G.S.H - Con & Conjure by Lisa Shearin

Con & Conjure
Lisa Shearin / Fantasy Romance
Book Five of the Raine Benares series
Release Date: March 29, 2011

My name is Raine Benares. I’m a seeker who finds lost things and missing people. My relatives, on the other hand, steal things. They’re the most notorious criminal family in the seven kingdoms. Sometimes I wonder if they have the right idea, especially since what I’ve found lately is likely to get me killed. And the Saghred, a soul-stealing stone that has given me unlimited power, is to blame for every last bit of it.

Ever since the Saghred bonded to me, the goblin king and the elven power brokers have wanted to possess its magic themselves. But to get it, they’ll have to get me, and their pockets are deep enough to make that happen. With the help of my highly qualified family, I’ve rigged the perfect con—one that will financially ruin the elves who are spoiling for war. My family’s run elaborate scams before, but none involving this much money, government officials this highly ranked, or a war this close to starting. In our way is a goblin thief who’s after the Saghred, and my ex-fiancĂ©—an elven assassin who may be after me. I broke up with him. Let’s just say it could have gone better.

If either the goblins or the elves get their hands on the Saghred, they have every intention of using it. Which means total annihilation will be inevitable…

Say what??? Ex-fiance elven assassin??
Please SAY IT ISN'T SO!!
(Love how I didn't care for the total annihilation part?)

This is an amazing fantasy series that is jammed packed filled with action and twists that leave you breathless. For all you romance lovers - the sexual tension in these books is INCREDIBLE. Raines is torn between TWO deliciously sexy men - Tam and Mychael. Pity she can't have them both *SIGH*
