"Olivia Brightmore didn't know what to expect when she took a position to teach at Englefiend School, an academy for 'gifted' children. But it wasn't having to rescue a young girl who levitated to the ceiling. Or battling a dark mystery in the surrounding woods. And nothing could have prepared her for Dr. Gareth St. John. He knew all about her history and scrutinized her every move because of it. But there was more than suspicion lurking in those luscious green eyes. Even with all the strange occurrences at the school, the most unsettling of all is the attraction pulling Olivia and Gareth together with a force that cannot be denied" -- p. [4] of cover.

24/5 - This was just so-so. The sex was ok, but their relationship seemed pretty disfunctional. There was very little romance. Neither seemed to feel particularly romantic toward the other - there was lust but I felt absolutely no love (even when they matter of factly announced it to each other). If this had been set today they could have been friends with occasional benefits because they didn't appear to have any everlasting feelings for each other that would necessitate marriage (not that that was actually mentioned by either). They could easily have gone on the way they were, one dropping by the other's bedroom at midnight and taking advantage of an empty library (or maybe music room) every so often. She has the added benefit of being able to prevent pregnancy through magical means, so there goes that impediment to a casual relationship based solely on sex.
The supernatural aspects were even less impressive. There was no feeling of impending danger from the magical threat, I just felt like "'yawn', demons coming through a portal created by a pair of unskilled child-magicians, but don't worry because they're not really evil demons, they're not likely to destroy the planet because it amuses them". And it was a given that something else came through when the child-magicians opened the portal. I don't know if I'll read another book from this series, maybe if I see it on the library shelves and I don't have anything better to read (highly unlikely, but anything's possible)

This is Cooper's second book, a sequel to No Proper Lady, and she continues to get the balance of fantasy and romance just right.
