A sec ret that might get her kicked out of the only true home she’s ever known.
When her powers malfunction and bring her into direct conflict with Mason — a widowed LexTal warrior who makes her heart pound and her legs weak — she scrambles to hold onto her carefully constructed world.
Mason’s wounded past keeps him from getting close to anyone but he can’t resist Gabby. There’s an essence about her his soul can’t ignore no matter how much his mind protests.
Her secret threatens to tear Gabby and Mason apart before they’ve even begun to explore the draw between them. But with the unprecedented hold she has on Mason’s heart and magic, how can he bear to let her go?
His feet carried him across the room before his mind even registered the action.
Her smile went a little wicked. “Not quite naked.” Though her grip on the comforter was so tight that the bones of her fingers pressed against her skin, Gabby took a breath and tossed the blanket aside.
Mason cursed, thinking that he needed something more than the towel around his waist, if he was going to make this last.
Despite moonlighting as a zookeeper and then a dog trainer, Elise decided that the only mammals she wanted to work with were her dark and sexy heroes and heroines. She inherited her love of reading from her mother and grandmother who dutifully kept stacks of romances where her teenaged fingers could easily pilfer them. She lives in Northern California with her three dogs, two energetic (read crazy) boys, and her awesome (see prior comment) husband.
