Minn, an Earless in need of a husband, will face her greatest challenge when breathtaking adventure finds her on a lonely dark road. When a cursed girl crosses her path she is saved by the mysterious and extraordinary Tomass, a sorcerer who reveals his nemesis has entered a plot with hers. Together they join forces to unravel the dark plot of the Duchess Serinne and dark sorcerer M’Graough. Tomass is a man forbidden; a social outcast practicing dangerous magic he can’t possible suit a woman of noble birth, but he is the greatest temptation she will ever face. Trained in the sensual arts Tomass can only raise magic with her help and her body, and every day they spend together she falls deeper under his compelling spell. In a world of swordfights, magic, duels, and epic battles, they must fight for their lives to avert the war to end all wars. But can true love win the day, or is it just another spell to hold them back? When valor and strength means everything to a woman, is she brave enough to find the true strength in surrendering her passions to a demanding man who takes no prisoners?
Tomass searched the shelves and selected a red leather book. “Here’s the one.”
“Anderank told me of this.”
“And what is it?” I folded the paper and sat back, tucking my legs beneath me.
He sat in the chair opposite me, a mischievous look in those blue eyes. “Should I read a passage aloud?” Without waiting for my reply he began flipping pages, skimming until one made him smile.
“There are fifty areas on a woman’s body that can be made to give her pleasure. The small of the back and the upper spine prefer soft, gentle kisses, while the upper swell of the buttocks prefer a light but firm touch-”
He glanced up, the cover still hiding his mouth. “What?”
“I don’t want you reading that!”
“It- it’s a pleasurer’s manual!”
The book sagged and he gave me a look that was an equal mix of seriousness and dark mirth. “Would you tell an equal, a fellow council member, not to read such things?”
I tried to form a response but for several long minutes no words came. He had me. At long last I narrowed my eyes. “I am going to kill Anderank.”
He’d returned to reading and looked up slyly, one dark brow raised. “Come here, wife.”
I was trying to be equitable but I wasn’t so sure about this. “Give me a good reason.”
“There is something I want to try.”
There was a sensual threat in that and instantly my body reacted like it was a challenge or a threat. Perhaps that was my problem, my entire life had been a power struggle: getting it, keeping it, earning more. Perhaps that was not what was needed here. Perhaps I had taught him it was always a contest for power, and undoing that lesson would take patience and time. My patience and my time, damn it. “If you wish to learn something new, I would be happy to teach you.”
He shifted at that, his eyes meeting mine and flitting away. In his gaze I saw a shy boy and confident man in one…there was nothing in the entire world more seductive. “I always was good with books.

I’ve been writing since I was twelve, my first story was a crime mystery set in my hometown of Detroit. An avid bookworm, I love to read paranormal urban fantasy, mysteries, historical romances, erotic romances, and erotica. I’ve worked as a waitress and an accountant, but through it all I’ve been an avid writer and reader. I love the written word so much I have a tattoo of the last 3 lines of The Great Gatsby on my arm. You can most likely find me at home lurking on Amazon and Goodreads or out at the library or bookstore.
