Genre: WWII-era Celtic Mythology/Shape-shifter Paranormal

Morrigán escaped the destruction of her world and is now one of only two left of her race. A cynical, world-weary spirit, she suffers from bouts of acute depression. She claims to have no sympathy for human emotions but is deeply frustrated by their inability to view their fleeting lives from the perspective of eternity. Desperately lonely, she struggles to cling to reason in spite of her need for a mate.

Tadgh is a sensitive poet thrust into the cruelty of war. He keeps his sanity by promising himself he'll live to enjoy life to the fullest when this cruel war is over. When the goddess of death appears to warn him he is about to die, he finds he'll do almost anything to cling to life. And to her.

Tadhg's gift of days is surely at an end. But Morrigán sees something in his eyes which she has never observed in any of her charges. She wants him, in every sense of the word. But can he face his hidden desires? Can he handle the consequences of sex with an Ancient?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Bondage/restraint.

About Anida Adler

See more books from this Author
Anida Adler lurked in the mind of her alter ego since her late teens. She watched with detached interest as her host floundered about, writing fantasy short stories and three novels--with some pleasing publishing success--and awaited her chance to bloom. On New Year's Eve 2007/8, her host finally turned her attention to what really mattered: romance. Through numerous 'practice novels', Anida guided her alter ego with infinite patience to the sheer delight of exploring her characters' sexuality without restraint. Now the question surfaces in her host's mind quite often: who is really in charge of this body? And oh, the answer to that question is the source of many stories yet to come.
