STRANGE BREWS by STOBIE PIEL
A DELICIOUS DRAUGHT...
Eliana Daere was the greatest herbalist alive. Trained by
the wizard Madawc, she could brew a potion to bring on a
gentle slumber, or a philter to drop a foe dead in his
tracks. Only one man existed whom she fearedone man
who constantly thwarted her will, one detestably handsome,
insolent and gifted sorcerer. It was his power that
protected the land of Amrodel. But Damir would never turn
down her offer of an alliance, and when he arrived at the
Mage's Glade and drank of the Wine of Truce, Eliana would
spring her trap.
He'd never trusted Eliana Daere. Her beauty had haunted him
since their school days, but she was headstrong and
impulsive and had reputedly aligned herself with the enemy.
That was why Damir found Eliana's offer hard to
swallowhe was well-prepared for treacheryand
why, when she fell into his hands, he felt no remorse about
teaching her a lesson. But he would not use force; he would
be gentle. He would craft a seduction so potent that, in
the end, she would have to admit to her own desires. It was
a strange brew that had brought them together, but
nonetheless the sweetest he had ever tasted.
