"Beautiful adult fantasy"
Ephame is the offspring of a mating between a human and a
centaur; from the waist up she is human, but from the waist
down she is covered with brown hair and has cloven hoofs.
Her genes make her stronger and faster than her human
counterparts. Although she loves her mother, she needs to
make a life for herself. She intends to return Castle
MacCallan to its former glory and become the new clan
chieftain. Centaurs and humans welcome her as the rightful
Ephame meets the half-human half Fomonian Lachlan; they
fall in love even though their races are enemies ever since
his invaded Parthelon, destroyed Castle MacCallan, and
kidnapped human women because their own are sterile.
Lachlan believes that Ephame is the person that the
prophecy foretold would lift the curse of the hybrids and
allow the evil Fomonian side to vanish. He also fears the
cost to his beloved is too high, but his race plans to
insure the fulfillment of the prophecy.
EPHAME'S CHOICE is a beautiful adult fantasy about
two "Romeo and Juliet" hybrids falling in love with the
backdrop of cross species hatred to keep them apart. Ephame
always felt like the odd person although her neighbors and
family respect her. When she strikes out on her own she
gains the self confidence that she lacked and quickly
becomes a leader worthy of ruling. Her mate is her equal
prepared to ostracize himself amidst his people to help his
beloved. Together they cast the keeper shelf spell on
