Crescent Calling

The Crescent Witch Chronicles

Book 1
Nicole R. Taylor

Skye Williams is an ordinary woman, living an ordinary life. Or so she thought. When she receives news of her estranged mother’s death, she must go to Ireland to claim her inheritance, but when she arrives in the tiny village of Derrydun, she isn’t prepared for what she finds nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Emerald Isle.  Lumped with a funeral, her mother's crystal shop, a moody goth girl for an employee, and a crumbling cottage with horrible floral curtains, selling up and getting out sounds like a great plan, but everything and everyone seems determined to keep her from going home. Skye doesn’t want any part of her mother’s life or the people of Derrydun until she sees the hot Irishman she’s been crushing on turn into a fox. More absurdly, he tells her her dead mother was a witch who battled evil fairies, there’s magical trees growing in the centre of the village, there’s a parallel universe where the fair folk live, and she’s meant to be the last defense of the magical peoples of Ireland. Turns out Skye Williams was never an ordinary woman. Not by a long shot. She’s the last Crescent Witch and has a destiny to fulfil.
Whether she likes it or not. 

The Crescent Witch Chronicles is a series stuffed full of Irish charm, myth and mayhem. Come on an adventure fraught with danger and forbidden romance...and the ultimate battle to save magic before it's gone forever.

Terrin sits on a throne he doesn't want, having been forced to inherit a Kingdom when his brother banished their sister and killed their mother ten years prior. 
In the past decade, Terrin has been using every mage left on earth to look for his sister, stuck inside an otherworldly realm. At every turn, they've come up short, exhausted and nothing to show for it. That is, until his best mage, Alec, disappears over a cliff and Terrin receives a divine prophecy about a key to unlock the realm...a key in the form of a beautiful and intriguing woman named Lyra. 
Terrin must summon the patience it takes to train and work with Lyra, a fledgling mage with considerable power but little control--over her magic or her temper. 
What he doesn't expect is his maddening physical reaction to her, and the control it takes on his part to keep his feelings to himself, buried under his responsibility to his throne and consequently to his people. 
Will Terrin be able to help Lyra unlock the realm for the good of his Kingdom and the world? 
And will the unlocking of the realm open another cascade of evils far more sinister than they already battle?

Lyra is just a school mistress from a small village, friendless, and on the verge of becoming a spinster for the rest of her life. 
Her world comes crashing down one day when she is summoned to the elusive royal Island of Gem by the mysterious King who tells her that her brother is missing and she is the key to finding him and restoring peace to the earth. 
There, in the King’s court, she will uncover the truth about herself and the world King Terrin has tried so hard to bury--that dormant, powerful magic lives within her and the world is not at all what it seems...
When the dark, brooding King joins her on a quest that forces her to face herself and her past, will she break or become stronger in the face of dark forces who want her for themselves? 
The only thing more frightening than the journey is the end; will she be able to face herself after all she’s done? And will there be anything left of her heart when the King she is forbidden to love is done with her? 
Author's Note: This tale contains scenes of intimacy intended for mature readers.
