For Elea, there’s never been a better time to turn away from witch life. The Tsar is in exile. The Vicomte is dead. And Rowan? Falling for him only broke her heart. Instead of casting spells, Elea spends her days running Braddock Farm and enjoying the flirtations of the very handsome and non-magical Philippe. Everything is going perfectly, except for one problem.

Someone’s trying to kill her.

Shujaa is a Changed One, a Creation Caster mage whose mutated form makes him invincible in battle. Now that the Tsar and Vicomte are gone, Shujaa wants to rise and rule. To do so, he must eliminate all those powerful enough to oppose him, and Elea is top on his list. Anyone who offers her aid quickly ends up dead.

In the end, there’s only one person who can keep Elea safe while helping her defeat Shujaa: Rowan. Like it or not, Elea must team up with her old love. With Philippe along for the ride, Elea plans to team with Rowan without losing her heart this time. But that’s when all her plans fall apart…

"My favorite part of this series is the attraction between Rowan and Elea. They have a forbidden romance that I'm addicted to." Cloud 9 Books

Perfect for readers who love sword and sorcery filled with magic, necromancy, witches and wizards. This series combines fierce females, paranormal romance and epic fantasy. Enjoy!

A riveting read! Elea is back at her farm where she wanted to be... But now, she realises it is not for her.. Now, someone's trying to Kill Elea... This series has become one of my favourite series of 2017. Rowan + Elea = everything! I am so glad I could read this series because it has hooked my attention right from the start, always delivering and not disappointing at all. From the books that is currently available, Cherished has become a favourite. Such pure magic and awesomeness! I mean, come on, kick-a*s heroine - who can resist this!?! Full of Necromancers, powers, Casters, Sentinel Spirits, enemies, secrets, danger, adventure, mystery, fantasy, trust and romance. Perfect for readers of dark fantasy/epic fantasy.

About the author

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby. She loves to connect with her fans at
