Running for her life, a frantic witch finds the man of her dreams. Can she trust him not to betray her?
A dark fantasy, historical romance novella with witches, vampires, a hunky mage. And Black Magick.
Hacked at with knives and tossed in the Danube, Melis Andresen is in desperate straits. Her tormentors are certain she's dead, or they wouldn't have let her go. With survival on the line, she leverages witchcraft and her training as a healer, and it's just barely enough. By the skin of her teeth, she survives the river running at flood stage and is asleep in a bedraggled heap next to a small fire, when a man walks out of the surrounding woods.
Though she doesn't know it at the time, her life is about to change forever.
