Please note that this story is set in a modern world.

First off, the story involved a main male lead who was some sort of dark mage and described as "unkempt" or "wild", a complete opposite to the main female lead who liked cleanliness. Which, because of that, made her female friend doubtful the female lead would be attracted to the male lead.

Another thing I remember: The male lead held certain tattoos or runes on his body that acted as hot keys for certain magic spells, enabling him to cast certain spells instantly. I think he used a teleportation spell in front of the female lead, making her impressed since that is a pretty difficult spell to execute.

The female lead, I think, worked at a magical library that held numerous grimoires. Also, I recall that the girl friend of the female lead had romantic interest in a very cold, indifferent male Angel.

Last, the male lead had a infamous dark mage enemy who plotted to use the female lead against him.

  • Could this be a comic, Death Vigil? – Gallifreyan Aug 27 '16 at 18:43
  • I searched the title, but no, it isnt what I was looking for. The story I'm talking of is a romance novel, nota comic. Ever read the Lords of the underworld series? If so, the novel is similar to those type of stories – Lorenzio Aug 27 '16 at 18:48

This sounds like a Mindy Klasky novel as it seems to have a similar 'librarian romance' theme. Possibly Magic and the Modern Girl?

The main character is a very clean-centric lady, and a librarian for a magical archive. She is also a witch who hasn't really come into her powers, or rather her powers are pretty spectacularly good at misfiring. The male romantic interest (whose name I cannot entirely remember) does have tattoos and is also her magical teacher/guardian person.

  • Could be. Can you remember any plot details that might fit the description in the question? – Adamant Aug 28 '16 at 23:34

  • Those elements do fit. I skimmed through the book, though, and there does not seem to be an angel, a teleportation spell, and so forth. Is it maybe part of a series? – Adamant Aug 29 '16 at 22:20
  • I believe that it is part of the Jane Madison novels, either the second or the third. – miladygrimm Aug 29 '16 at 22:27

    Ah..I just checked. No, sadly. The book I was reading had pretty explicit scenes between the main characters. An adult supernatural romance novel. The hammer Madison novels dont seem like they would be of that genre. And I know the cover was different. I will keep searching, though. Thank for the help, and your time :) – Lorenzio Aug 30 '16 at 9:18
