Phoenix shifter, Phyro Khant, and her dragon bodyguard, Tameron Murphy, are two loners that bonded together for love and safety. But their never-ending need to evade the dark witches that hunt Phyro for her Phoenix tears, blood and more, has worn them down and flat lined their relationship.
When Tam purchases Phyro an amethyst pendant from Salynne’s Crystals and Thyme, her efforts to imbue the stone with protective power backfires and grabs them with a spell previously coded into the stone. The magic ignites an inferno of passion the two lovers can’t seem to quench with any amount of sex.
Will their explosive passion be enough to teach them how to trust in time to accept the help they need from outsiders or will the witches win their final bid for power and control of the phoenix magic?
Her eyes fluttered shut. She slowed her breathing, sinking deeper to a place of in between. She drifted in and out of consciousness wishing she could remember what had happened to leave her in this battered state, naked on the ground. Naked seemed to indicate that at some juncture she had shifted to avian form to escape someone. How else could she have gotten this deep into the forest? She couldn’t worry about being safe or not, there wasn’t energy to fight. Be calm and let her Phoenix nature do its job. She’d trust to come out the other side stronger.
She willed her body to heal and grasped at wisps of memory. A metaphysical pull tugged inside her, one of loss and longing. Struggling to sit up, she gasped for breath in shallow pants. The raw clenched energy twisted her again. Tam! She needed to be home with her mate. Something had drawn her from their apartment without leaving word for Tam that she would be away. Phyro shook her head trying to clear her thoughts. No… bad idea, too soon. She groaned and lay back. Damn. Five minutes more. The setting sun warmed her skin.
The energy wrenched her again. Her shape dissolved and reformed without conscious thought or will to follow the summons of her chosen mate. She took to the air in Phoenix form with a scream of exhilaration at her freedom, flying toward the source.
