Keep reading for all the details on the book!
PRIMARY GENRE: High Fantasy - Set in a completely different world, think Lord of the Rings, The Witcher, the Merry Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton, and G.A. Aiken’s Dragon Kin series.
HEAT LEVEL: Light Me on Fire Hot - all the SEX, with graphic explicit details and descriptions. Think Laurel K. Hamilton, Lora Leigh, Kel Carpenter, and Rachel Van Dyken.
TRIGGERS: The FMC is recovering from her father's emotional abuse and some scenes explore her healing process, including how she copes with a traumatic flashback and panic attack.
She's ready for her eternal future with him. But the past won't let them go…
The night Cassia has fought for is here. At last, she'll drink Lio’s blood and join him as an immortal Hesperine, fulfilling their Grace bond. But then an unexpected guest returns to Orthros with a revelation about the past she never imagined. Secrets lay hidden in the illustrious Empire, where she must travel with Lio to find the truth.
Lio has risked everything for his Grace before, and he'll do it again. He'll stand between Cassia and the politics pulling her back toward the human world. He'll push his magic to new limits to keep her safe. Even if it destroys his life's work as a diplomat - or Cassia's trust in him.
