In an ancient civilized society, Ceiba is the living vessel of the Mother Earth goddess. Duty dictates her coming marriage to god of the dead’s living vessel. An irresistible love draws her to the guard sworn to protect her. Will she choose true love with her guard, or the destiny she was born to fulfill?
CEIBA’S GRACE is the prequel to the paranormal romance / urban fantasy ELEMENTAL MYTHS romance series. Similar in subject matter, it is a lighter, more carefree read than Deborah Harness’ All Souls Trilogy. This paranormal romance series is sure to entice readers of Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series and Marjorie M. Liu’s Dirk and Steele series. ELEMENTAL MYTHS follows four couples as they bond together in steamy romance, supernatural powers, and predestined battle to save modern mankind from the mysterious demise of the vanished Incan Empire.
Life is finally on track for fledgling stage actress Layla Cohen until she realizes her gorgeous new director, Sebastian, is the star of the erotic dreams which she’s been having for months. She could handle the uncomfortable work situation if not for the further evidence she’s losing her mind: The wind suddenly whooshes at her command; memories of a past life emerge; and she’s sure someone is trying to kill her.
Meanwhile, director Sebastian Tawanti is steering his small D.C. theater company into the big-time with his Incan mythology-based play. The culmination of his life’s work, he won’t let anything stand in the way of his play’s success–not his mother’s objections, not the inappropriate heat he feels for Layla, and not even the mysterious, empathic symptoms he’s experienced since meeting her.
As Layla and Sebastian struggle with new love and burgeoning power, a sinister force unravels to fulfill an ancient prophecy. Will they learn the truth behind the Incan script in time to save their lives, the love they’re destined to share, and the future of humanity?
LAYLA’S GALE is the first in the planned four-book paranormal romance/urban fantasy ELEMENTAL MYTHS series. It is sure to entice readers of Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series and Marjorie M. Liu’s Dirk and Steele series. ELEMENTAL MYTHS follows four couples as they bond together in steamy romance, elemental powers, and predestined battle to save modern mankind from the mysterious demise of the vanished Inca Empire.
