New alliances are threatened…
Wizard Jacob, Fae Helcyon and their paramour Cassandra have
set up a household together. Jacob and Helcyon have accepted the other
in Cassie’s life, but they must work to realize that they need each
other too in order to become a true trio.
Dark pacts are revealed…
The Fae are trending world wide, but the arrival of many dangerous
beings, old foes and new friends bring about charges of treason for
Jacob and a new danger for Cassie. Intrigue closes in on all sides as
factions jockey for power in the divided Wizard Council.
One legacy may unite them…
Helcyon and Jacob are determined to keep the woman they love safe,
but danger lurks at every turn and the old ways threaten their future.

caught between his hands. Jacob was both a Homeland Security Agent and
Wizard. A vibrating hum ripped through the room. Cassie stared at them
both with wide eyes and an open mouth.

solarium. Morning sunshine poured in the broad windows, warming every
“No,” Jacob said slowly, giving a push with his hands to send the blade back to the Elf. “You need to learn to defend yourself.”
Cassie pointed a long painted nail first at Jacob and then at Helcyon. “No.”
Helcyon’s voice carried the patience of the ages, his stance relaxed.
“The Wizard is correct. Self-defense is vital to your survival.”
I’m still not learning how to use a sword.” She wrinkled her nose at
both of them, nibbled on a cruller, and pointedly returned her attention
to the digital tablet in her lap. In the week since their announcement
went live on every major news network, the shit had literally hit the
fan about the Fae. Appointment calls poured in from late-night
television, daytime television, newspapers, and Congress. She’d expected
them all, even the calls from congressional leaders. She simply hadn’t
imagined they’d come all at once.
Jacob stalked toward her, and she barely managed to wrap her fingers
around the tablet before he tried to tug it away. “This is important.”
She yanked the tablet back to her chest, wrapping her arms securely
around it. “It is important. I don’t have an assistant to field these
calls. I need to review every single one.”
Her heart spasmed on the word “assistant.” Billy had been dead for two weeks.
seemed impossible that in less than two weeks she’d gone from footloose
media consultant to coveted Fae-human liaison. More impossible that
she’d gone from overworked professional woman to up to her eyeballs with
two of the most gorgeous and loving men she’d ever met. Well, when they
weren’t arguing. She glared up at Jacob, meeting his hot, demanding
stare with steel.
she wore contacts to cover up her previously green, now supernaturally
colored eyes. A byproduct of a blinding spell, her men wanted the hue
disguised whenever she was in public. They cited safety, security, and
simplicity. It wasn’t a point she felt the need to argue. At home, she
skipped the contacts, so she knew he was staring into her gold eyes the
same way she watched the gold flecks in his liquid brown eyes warm to
flinty points. Behind him, Helcyon sighed.
sound dragged her attention to the Elf. He and Jacob were so alike and
yet so wildly different. Helcyon was the dark to Jacob’s light in looks.
Silky, midnight-black hair poured down his back, and warm, mysterious
forest-green eyes softened whenever his gaze touched her face.
Her heart squeezed. They were amazing. Both of them.
Cassie.” Jacob’s fist came down on the arm of the chair, and she pursed
her lips, bracing for the argument that always erupted when she fought
back against the total obedience he demanded. She understood his need to
protect her, a need that just seemed to escalate after they captured
Michael. He was still pissed that the Glashtyn, the Fae vehicle he
traveled in, chose to aid her and demonstrated remarkable affection
toward her. Affection she used to run away from the warring pair just a

He pointed at her tablet. “And your job includes you staying alive,
which means you need to increase your knowledge of self-defense.”
all those times you two plan on leaving me alone?” She pretended to
ignore Helcyon’s faint smile. The Elf was so much more patient than
Jacob, but in the hours before the press conference, they’d informed her
that they were willing to stay with her…both of them. A thought that
sent heat skittering through her blood and thrummed pleasure against
every pulse point.
one fell in love in seven days, and she’d done it twice. A week later,
she knew she loved them, every stubborn, argumentative inch. They both
wanted her to choose, but they were willing to share her body, her
heart, and her defense.
The defense part was getting on her nerves.
