Oden, the Dark Lord of Nightmares, seems to be the only one who can help her find control. But the deeper she sinks into his domain, the further she drifts from the one she truly loves…

“Taking Time Travel Romance all the way back to Ancient Egypt gives this amazing series a unique edge that sets it apart from others in the genre.” – ★★★★★ InD’Tale Magazine
The tendrils of a wine coma were so much heavier than a dream. Everything felt so real, so tangible. My hands gently slid through the damp grass beneath me as I buried my toes in sand. The body of water that stretched to the horizon, one long gone in my time, lapped about with the ebb and flow of the warm breeze.
I tipped my head back and sucked in a deep breath that filled my lungs with a sweet, mild air as two arms wrapped around me from behind. My heart fluttered at his touch. After so many years without him, the simple nearness of Silas sent my pulse soaring. But he rested his head against my back with a sigh, and I knew.
“You’re saying goodbye again, aren’t you?” I whispered over my shoulder. Even in a dream, I knew something was wrong. “Andie, I love you. Almost too much at times,” his voice vibrated against my skin. “You’ll never understand the sacrifices I’m willing to make just to keep you safe.”
I turned in his arms and touched my palm to his worried face. Silas leaned into it. “And what about the sacrifices I’m willing to make? For you. For us.” The rims of my eyes burned. “I’m not ready to let you go again.”
He hugged me close, his lips on mine immediately. The taste of our tears touched my tongue and I gasped for air. But Silas refused to let me go.
Finally, he pulled back. “I understand,” he said in a breathy reply. “But, since only one of us is immortal, I can’t bear the thought of keeping you in line of danger just to appease my selfish heart.”
“This book gave me all the feels.
Love is a Weakness, Even for the Gods.

"This book blew my mind! I can't wait for the rest of this series!" ★★★★★ - USA TODAY Bestselling Author of The Guardians, JJ King
Love was a complex creature. An ever-changing beast of emotions and promises. And we, like the gluttons for pain we are, crave love as it craves us, and then die with it when we let it burn out.
I knew this. I wasn’t a fool.
But as I stood there on the terrace of my father’s old Victorian townhouse and drank in the otherworldly beauty of the man before me, I happily accepted my fate. I’d let my love for him set me afire until there was nothing left but a pile of ash.
He was so worth the burn.

"This series blew my mind!" ★★★★★ USA TODAY Bestselling Author JJ King
The sound of his winning laughter following me until the darkness of the colony damped the trailing echo. When I felt a safe distance was between us, I came to a halt and threw my back against a wall to console myself.
What was that?
My amulet…it warmed and crackled in my pocket the moment Horus’ skin touched mine. Intensified the longer he held on. Why? What caused it? His powers, maybe? No, he wore the cuffs, his powers were stifled.
I cupped the hand in my other as I contemplated, rubbing the palm where he held too tightly. Then a thought dawned on me. No–the amulet, it was mine, but the magic that bound it to me was taken from Silas. And Silas was made from Horus. I swallowed against the dry tightness that squeezed in my throat and tipped my head back against the stone.
Did that mean…I was somehow connected to Horus now, too?

"A series to give Outlander a run for its money!" - ★★★★★ InD'Tale Magazine
"Read your mother's journal," Aunt Mary started, "If you don't find the answers you need then promise to stop. Leave whatever happened to you behind, stop looking, stop wanting whatever it is you think you want. Stay here, fix the house, run the bakery, and raise that baby. Whether or not that life includes John is up to you." She paused, her words slowly sinking in. "Can you do that?"
I rubbed my thumb over the sun and moon on the cover, admiring that my mother's hands had put the symbols there. My mom, the time traveller. The magical woman from the past. I held the edge to my nose and inhaled deeply, surprised to find that the slightest hint of her perfume still held onto the pages, the scent bringing tears to my eyes. This was my last hope. If the secret to going back to Henry even existed, it had to be in that journal. My father may have found it, but maybe he didn't know or understand it properly, the way I would.
"Yes," I told Aunt Mary, agreeing because there was a high chance I would never have to uphold my end of the bargain. I could be on my way back to Henry any day and that thought set fire to something inside of me. I held up the journal in admiration and awe. "I can do that."

"I could read this series OVER AND OVER again!" ★★★★★ Goodreads Reviews
Small lanterns of fire led my way to the boardwalk as I bypassed the abandoned merchant tents and touched my foot to the weathered wood that lined the length of the wharf. Funny, how eager we all were to get off The Queen and spend time on land, it was the one thing I now craved. I knew the salt of the sea air would fill my lungs and wash away my stress. I sucked it in, breath after breath, while rolling the pearls around in my pocket.
Just do it, sweetheart.
The sound of my mother's voice so loudly in my ears startled me to my core. I glanced around frantically, searching for her, but Constance Cobham was nowhere to be found. I willed my heart to slow and pinched the bridge of my nose. I had to do it. I had to make the wish then and there or there'd be no hope in getting back to sleep that night.
Slowly, I pinched one of the pearls and pulled it out from the bottom of my jacket pocket. I twirled it in my fingers, admiring the way it glistened in the moonlight. It was the grey one. I clutched it tightly and walked to the wharf's edge. With one big gulp of air, I flicked the enchanted pearl into the water and watched in awe as it began to dissipate just like the black one had done. The tiny particles were nearly gone when I realized I'd yet to say the words. I panicked and opened my mouth to speak.
"I wish to-"
But the words dried up in my mouth. The sound of my mother's voice still echoed in my head and I second guessed what I truly wanted. Wish to find Maria, or wish to find my mother first?
"I... I wish to find Maria." There. It was done. But my heart still raced with the poison of regret. The final grains of pearl slowly fizzed away, and I shouted before it was too late, "before she finds my mother!" The weight had been lifted and I breathed a huge sigh of relief. Now I just had to wait for the universe to do its duty.
I just hoped it worked.
