From the publisher’s site:
T-FLAC/psi operative Simon Blackthorne goes to Africa to continue the global war against paranormal terror–never expecting to clash swords with strong-willed Kess Goodall.

Kess struggles in her own desperate battle to unravel a deadly secret that has killed millions in the tiny country of Mallaruza. But Simon proves to be the ultimate distraction: his very presence takes her body to the edge of a pleasure-filled abyss, his touch superbly rapturous. Now, against a backdrop of staggering beauty and horrific violence, with danger at every turn and libidos in overdrive, a spirited woman and an indomitable wizard face a malevolent force more frightening than both can imagine.

With foes strong and numerous, Kess and Simon must forge a bond strong enough to eliminate a sadistic enemy before Mallaruza is lost to terrorist control and the world forever changed.

My thoughts:
Simon Blackthorne, a wizard and T-FLAC/psi agent, travels to Africa to see an old college acquaintance that’s running for presidential re-election in Mallaruza. Millions of Abioyne Bongani’s people are dying, and doctors have been unable to diagnose or stop the apparent spread. Simon plans to take matters into his own hands and get to the bottom of what’s happening in this small country. Protecting Abi’s publicist, Kess, quickly becomes a priority when a powerful wizard enters the fray and makes his intentions known.

Kess Goodall got as far away from Atlanta, Georgia and her tarnished reputation as she could, taking the job as publicist to President Bongani. She enjoys the job and respects the man she works for. She’s horrified by what’s going on around them and Kess is prepared to do whatever she can to help, even if she’s putting herself in harms way. Simon may be frustrating at times, but it’s obvious even to Kess that there’s something special about him. Without his help and protection she may not survive.

This is the first release in the T-FLAC/psi Trilogy, and what an action-packed start it is. Surrounded by death and danger, Simon and Kess find a passionate connection as they fight side by side to survive. Ms. Adair seamlessly blends thrilling suspense and paranormal romance into one scorching read. Night Fall is well-detailed, witty at just the right moments, and has a strong plot that will keep readers engaged to the end.
