FREE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED!!!
Four elite fae warriors. One mortal female. A magical bond they can't allow-or resist.
Orphaned and sold to a harsh master, Lera's life is about mucking stalls, avoiding her master's advances, and steering clear of the mystical forest separating the mortal and fae worlds. Only fools venture into the immortal realms, and only dark rumors come out... Until four powerful fae warriors appear at Lera's barn.
River, Coal, Tye, and Shade have waited a decade for their new fifth to be chosen, the wounds from their quint brother's loss still raw. But the magic has played a cruel trick, bonding the four immortal warriors to... a female. A mortal female.
Distractingly beautiful and dangerously frail, Lera can only be one thing-a mistake. Yet as the males bring Lera back to the fae lands to sever the bond, they discover that she holds more power over their souls than is safe for anyone... especially for Lera herself.
Power of Five is a full-length reverse-harem fantasy novel.
Unclasping his cloak, Tye eased the rich green fabric from his back and wrapped it around Lera's slender shoulders, ignoring Coal's hard glare. Tye was not marking the female with his scent-the lass was ice cold and it chafed Tye to see her so. Coal might consider freezing to be a character-building exercise, but other sentient beings could certainly disagree.
Plus, whether Lera accepted the cloak or not was likewise her choice.
Tye hid a smile as Lera pulled the fabric around herself, inhaling deeply. Her body softened, the tension in her shoulders easing. Tye's nostrils flared, savoring the subtle scent of her pleasure. Her other, more dominant scents were already familiar to him. Sweet hay and lilac flower, tinged with something fresh and rich, like ripe berries. Lera's hair, a warm reddish brown, fell away to expose her neck, which throbbed with her rapid heartbeat. Tye's cock twitched, his mouth longing to press over the female's trembling pulse.
"Get out of here, traitor," the trash on the ground roared, disgustingly oblivious to just how close he was to being put down. "I always knew you were nothing but a cursed wench, a common wh-"
Shade growled. Shade's wolf was intelligent, but with saturated instincts, he could strike first and fret over it later. Fortunately, Zake proved wise enough to shut up and Coal was already moving to place himself between Shade and the miserable human.
Which left Tye and Lera. "Come, lass," Tye said softly into her ear as he stepped around to where she could see his face, his skin still tingling from when she'd leaned lightly into him. "River is waiting with the horses."
"How many of you are there?" Lera asked, looking at Coal. At bloody Coal! Which was just humiliating.
"Four," Coal said brusquely.
Tye held out his hand, reclaiming Lera's attention. "Five, including you. If we could get moving before River grows cranky, it would be good."
