A thousand years of servitude left Leela more than a little jaded. The betrayal of the man she loved was only the beginning of the nightmare.
After centuries of abuse by greedy masters, her hope for freedom for herself and her fellow Djinn from the magical stones that bind them has dimmed to a barely-there glimmer.
But it hasn't yet been extinguished.
When the young, handsome, and idealistic Jered inadvertently becomes her new master, Leela wonders if his tenderness and concern may be real. He doesn’t even realize that he’s a magician and wields magic of his own. Despite her years of suffering, her heart begins to open to him. And the chance of romance.
As she inches closer to trusting Jered, the original masters she assumed long dead resurface. They've found a way to survive, using young magicians' bodies to hold their essence. And when they discover her whereabouts, they come for her—and Jered. If the evil ones succeed, then she’ll once again be in the service of the man who betrayed her, this time forever.
In the past, her choices led to unimaginable suffering. Now, when freedom or an eternity of torture both loom as real possibilities, can she dare risk everything for love?
Taj knows his revolving door of lovers won’t erase the past, but it helps pass the time. That is until his sister Leela’s boyfriend shows up in a panic. With Leela missing and a Djinn killer on the loose, Taj dives into trying to find both his vanished sister…and the murderer.
His quest introduces him to another Djinni named Brolach, new to his human form. Attraction blooms and Taj wonders if it might be worth the risk to try dating his own kind. His last relationship with a Djinni didn’t end well, but it has been almost two hundred years since he lost Cal.
When danger traps him and his loved ones, and everyone looks to him for guidance, Taj finds he’s thrust into a position he doesn’t want. Can he overcome the demons of his past to save the future and find his happily ever after?
After a thousand years of suffering, a happily ever after can be hard to accept.
The Order of the Djinn is growing, and Mira throws herself into the work of freeing others of her kind from their dismal fate. It’s easier than facing her painful history.
When a magician’s black market is discovered to be selling Djinn Blood, Mira’s ready to unleash hell on the culprit. But what she finds is far more complicated.
The sexy magician with skills even she can’t mimic seems to have a heart of gold and a stubborn streak to match. He not only claims that all the blood has been freely given, but he insists that his purpose is the same as hers. Most disconcerting of all is his uncanny ability to see her in a way no one ever has…even herself.
When those she loves, and the world itself, hang in the balance, will Mira finally trust her heart despite her haunted past?
