This is a spin off of my Witches Knot series and a standalone. You’ll see some familiar faces but meet a new cast of characters! It’s now available from Ellora’s Cave.
Blurb: Mei NiaAine spent a three thousand years in a demon prison in the outer circle of hell. Escaping with her life, it’s taken another two thousand years to get her life back together with the help and love of her husband and mate, Card.
Mei is a Warrior For the Balance. She stands between good and evil. So when her boss tells her she’s got to head to Tir na nOg to help the Fae, she is most displeased. Mei’s mother, Aine, the queen of the Fae betrayed and exiled her those millennia ago. Or so she’s been led to believe.
But it was a lie. Aine was mislead by her own sister, Mei’s aunt and suddenly, everything Mei has thought was true for thousands of years falls down around her ears as she looks up to see the face of her husband. Her first husband, a man she’d thought was dead.
Jayce MacTavish is surprised to find that not only is his wife, thought millennia dead, is alive, but his joy is tempered by the
realization that she’s got another mate.
Mei, Card and Jayce must find a way to be together as three while the threat from the Dark Fae and a new enemy darkens the horizon.

Excerpt for those 18 and older behind the cut…
Jayce woke up and the ache of her memory sliced through him. His hand automatically went to his throat where the ring hung but it was gone. Panicked, he sat up and looked around himself for it only to see her there, eyes wide as she looked at him.
“Jayce? Is everything all right?” Her voice was sleepy as she sat up and traced a fingertip down his jaw. He remembered the ring was on his finger again after three millennia.
“Yes. I just woke up and thought you were gone. I…” He shook his head and she kissed the cleft on his chin.
“But I’m not. I’m here and all the little Fae chickies had better keep that in mind.”
He chuckled. “Goddess, I’d forgotten how beautiful you look first thing when you wake.” Joy rushed through him as reality replaced the nightmare he’d been living. His woman was back and in his bed. Naked and at his side. Looking up with him with such love and desire it made his chest hurt.
Happiness spread through Mei as she looked into that face that was once as familiar as her own. She wove her hands into his hair and pulled him down to her. “There are other things you seem to have forgotten about me in the morning.”
A hand trailed over her from neck to hip. “So soft. Your skin is dusted with silken gold. You’re a goddess, Mei. My goddess.” He got to his hands and knees, looming over her, his hair sliding over his back and down onto her like a blanket of fire.
Words wouldn’t come to her. Oh how she loved him! His muscles, hard and substantial, rippled under her palms as she slid them up his biceps and over his shoulders.
Taking her lips again, he delivered a kiss so dizzying that she briefly wondered if he’d used magic on her. He pulled back and
looked deep into her eyes before saying, “I’m going to taste every inch of you, Mei. And after I’ve done that and listened to your
cries as you come, then I’ll slide my cock deep inside you and make love to you until we’re sated.”
