Leda Stowe loves living on her tiny island off the California coast, taking care of rescued exotic animals. But her peaceful existence is interrupted one night when a gorgeous man with a sword appears out of nowhere in her lion's enclosure.
Instead of fearing for his life, the man has a conversation with the lion and casually walks out to face Leda—all six foot and change of him, wearing nothing but jeans riding low on his hips. He exudes more life magic than Leda has ever seen, easily erasing the wards she's put on her island home and imposing his own.
He is Hunter, one of the Immortal brothers, jerked away from his snug bed by the Calling spell, thrown here when the spell was broken. He knows there's something wrong with the world, but he'd rather hole up on this quiet island with the beautiful Leda, and let the world deal with it.
But too soon Leda and Hunter, and the lion Mukasa, must journey to the mainland to join Hunter's brothers for the final battle against evil, to rescue the trapped Tain, which will call for Hunter to make a sacrifice that threatens to break him.
This is a full-length novel (95,000 words).
When Zarabeth of Nvengaria is in danger, her cousin Prince Damien knows there's no safer place he can send her than to his old friend Egan MacDonald and his castle in the remote Scottish Highlands.
Egan has loved Zarabeth since the day she kissed him in her father’s house five years ago, his young friend having blossomed into a beautiful woman. Since then, Zarabeth has married, but she recently discovered that her husband was a treacherous plotter, ready to overthrow her cousin Damien and take over Nvengaria. She slips away at great risk to herself and informs Damien, who sends her to Scotland, in the company of a half-logosh called Valentin to protect her, out of reach of her cruel and vengeful husband.
Egan finds Zarabeth a rigid shell of a woman. He undertakes to strip away the layers she’s been forced to wear, to expose the true, spirited, beautiful Zarabeth he’d known. At the same time, Zarabeth is determined to show Egan how much she cares for him—has always cared for him.
She also comes to life in the castle whose beams are likely to fall on her, and which is supposedly under a curse, where Egan’s cousins, sister, nephews, and neighbors swarm at will, returning joy and laughter to Zarabeth’s world. Egan’s nephew Jamie is determined to marry Egan off so Jamie won’t have to inherit, and recruits Zarabeth to help him. Zarabeth falls in love with Castle MacDonald and its inhabitants and never wants to leave—curse or no curse.
Zarabeth grows interested in the curse and its history—anything magical fascinates her. She herself has a magical gift, inherited from her Nvengarian mother—she can read thoughts, which was how she learned of her husband’s treachery.
But there is one person she’s never been able to read—Egan MacDonald, the Mad Highlander, the man she’d give her heart to, and her entire life if he wished it …
Samantha Taylor, detective in the paranormal division, is committed to bringing down drug-selling demons and vampires who turn too many victims. Her stakeout of a demon club is blown by the appearance of a man with amazing power, who kills the attacking demons with one burst of magic.
Samantha is shocked to see the man is Tain, the Immortal she helped rescue, whose healing touch burns her.
Tain is back, and he needs Samantha’s help. Young demon women are being murdered, and though Tain has no love for demons, he recognizes that they are innocents. He’s also powerfully drawn to Samantha, a half demon, and fears his pull to her means he hasn’t healed from his ordeal.
Tain reveals to Samantha more about herself than she’s comfortable knowing, but though she’s falling for Tain, she knows he’ll never allow himself to be tied to demonkind again.
When the killer endangers them both, as well as people they love, Tain and Samantha must solve the case together and fight the growing, powerful attraction between them, a battle they are steadily losing.
Welcome back to the world of the Immortals, where vamps, weres, demons, witches, and Immortals warriors exist in the real world, and the forces of life magic and death magic struggle for balance.
