Review The Banshee's Embrace by Victoria Richards

Jacqueline Huston has no idea what has been happening to her, but it started the night she was attacked by men with strange powers. While mortally wounded in the attack, Jacqueline knows she would have surely died if her husband hadn’t thrown himself into the line of fire. But being alive is little comfort when your husband is dead.
Ever since that night, Jacqueline has been strangely drawn to death for reasons she doesn’t understand. When death is nearby, she can see when it is coming for someone. However, it’s her urge to sing when she gets close to dying people that she finds most disturbing.
Toby Williams is a wizard and a member of the Brotherhood of Merlyn, an ancient order of powerful wizards. He’s been charged by an ancient order of wizards to keep an eye on Jacqueline. Half banshees are rare, and if placed in the wrong hands they can be a powerful weapon. As owner of Merlyn’s Bar, a place the lovely Ms. Huston frequents, it seems an easy enough assignment for Toby.
When a sinister wizard attempts to kidnap her, Jacqueline learns a frightening truth about her heritage, and her powers. Will she be able to use her powers to save Toby, the man she is falling in love with, or will her powers consumer her, causing her to lose everything she holds dear?

                                                               My Review:

Jacqueline was attacked a long time ago, a night that cost her her husband who tried to defend her. It left her badly injure but alive, and then there is Toby a wizard assigned to keep an eye on Jacqueline, who is a half Banshee, they can be very dangerous in wrong hands. A wizard tries ti kidnap her to miss use her powers, at that point Jacqueline realizes what happened to her and what powers she has, 

Loved this book, Jacqueline and Toby are great characters and the book held my attention from page one. Loved the twists and the humor in it too. Job well done!
