Marika works at Inner Magick for
Aislinn Windbourne Dilessio, a half elf married to a cop. A
frequent visitor to the shop is writer Sophie whoís mated to
Severn Damek, a dragon, and watched over by Xanthus, a
dragon fey hybrid.
All of these people and supernaturals
think that Marika and her lover Tallis are human and unaware
of the special beings surrounding them. But Marika has the
most powerful secret of all: she is a Drui, a being capable
of healing any illness or poison, or taking power. The Drui
keep their heritage secret because they are either coveted
or killed. Tallis is a Sjen, forever linked to Marika after
she saved his life several years ago.
Xanthus is positive that Marika is his
mate, but until his liege service to Severn is concluded, he
cannot devote all of his energy to her. But that wonít stop
him from doing what he can to entice the skittish woman into
becoming his mate. By species law or by fear, neither
Marika, Tallis, nor Xanthus can tell the truth to each other
until they are truly mated. The time has come for someone
to take that step and be honest, or bury their secrets
forever and loose the love of a lifetime, an eternity.

something for everyone, with supernaturals, mild BDSM, a
murder attempt, scorching hot twosomes and threesomes, plus
surprising plot twists in Drui Claiming.
