Stones of the Seven
Welcome to a series of standalone, low-heat fantasy romance in a world of indifferent gods. When death takes you to the empty realm between the mortal world and the land of the gods, you will likely not return. But if the gods take an interest in you, they might take a taste of your soul. If they like it, they’ll leave just enough of it, along with an echo of their power, and send you back to continue your changed life.
Seven Gods. Seven Powers. One chance to find love in a brutal world.
Book Three : Crystal of Memory
Half-elf Ashryn Brinell lives between two worlds. Fostered with her human cousin Carisa, she braves a gown and heels for her cousin’s arranged wedding to a captain of the duke’s guard. When the groom turns out to be the handsomest man she’s ever seen, she’s happy for her cousin. And when Carisa disappears on the night before the marriage, the only person who will help Ashryn search for her is the jilted guard captain himself.
Connor Black’s skill and courage have raised him to a trusted position in the duke’s private guard, but his true identity haunts him from a childhood plagued with the magic of his unstable parents. His fiance’s disappearance leads him and the fiery Ashryn into the dangerous world of an elf drug called Bliss. The trail points back to the place he swore he’d never return to: home.

As they fight their growing attraction, they uncover a sinister plot that threatens the peace between elves and humans, and their search for Carisa reveals the deadly power of magic in the hands of an obsessed man with nothing to lose.
