"Magical adventure that will leave you on the edge of your seat"

Dara Kahn Androcles feels powerless; she wants to help her kingdom against the boar and the evil Count Jalad of Westmarche. When she encounters her adopted father, Rufus Quickblade, who had fallen in battle, she attempts to heal him, but to no avail. He asks her to end his suffering. But before he passes onto the other world, he asks Dara to seek out and aide the foreign lad that saved him. When she encounters Loren ta Cedric, she tries to heal him, then she must ward off the boar warriors. After Dara saves Loren, he swears a life debt to her and swears that he will protect her until they draw their last breath.

Dara, being the strong and independent woman that she is, does not want Loren's assistance; she was trained by her adoptive father to be a warrior. She has no choice though, but to seek the help of Elven Prince, Loren. So Dara and Loren set out to protect the kingdom from the evil demon, Count Jalad of Westmarche. While on the journey, Dara begins to unlock secrets about herself and her true family, which can aid her in the battle against the demon.

Can Dara and Loren work together to meet both of their goals and defeat the evil demon that's ready to destroy everything that they cherish and hold dear?

Duality by Renee Wildes is a suspenseful story of romance and surprise. A well written story that will grab your imagination and pull you into this magical world. I think readers will enjoy this story whole heartedly, I know I did. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good romance, filled with adventure that will leave you on the edge of the seat.

Love will give them strength—or prove to be their fatal flaw.

Guardians of the Light, Book 1

Dara Khan Androcles is really in over her head this time. From childhood she’s been forced to hide her half-dragon mage fighting skills behind a public persona as a healer. Now, with a traitor and his demon threatening the throne of Safehold, Dara has no choice but to turn reluctant warrior—and seek help.

She strikes a bargain with runaway Elven prince Loren ta Cedric and his sentient, pain-in-the-butt war mare, Hani’ena. Loren’s not only too handsome for Dara’s own good, the powerful empath can see right through to the pain that drives her.

Loren can’t help but feel Dara’s every hurt, physical and emotional. Though his need for her drives him half mad, he must stay his course to see justice done for his people. Even if it means swearing a Life Debt to the distracting mortal.

That vow, made in the heat of their parallel quests, carries more power than either of them guessed. The power to bond the unlikely pair as Life Mates. The power to lay bare the fears and desires that could bind them to a single purpose—or tear them apart.

All the while a demon awaits, ready to destroy all that they hold dear.

Genre: Fantasy Romance
Length: Plus Novel

Warning: Contains patricide; noble self-sacrifice; one bad-ass, demon-possessed despot; a bad-tempered dragon; and a water mage who likes to “rain” on her husband’s parade—literally. Downside: A quest for a magic book (written in blood) that nobody wants, and a talking war mare with the warm, fuzzy voice of Judy Densch. Upside: Serious ass-kicking. Be prepared to learn to curse, cry and laugh—in Elvish.
