Heart of the Forest
In Ersland, you stay out of the forests, and you stick to your own kind…
It’s common knowledge elves steal human women in the middle of the night to be their whores, or worse. According to The Dawn, elves are the agents of the dark and to be avoided at all costs.
As a Cunning Woman, Valentina has never really cared too much about The Dawn or its racist tenets—it probably has something to do with the fact that they burn healers as witches. So when a desperate group of elves bring their wounded leader Aneurin to her door, Valentina agrees to treat him. As his wounds heal, their hearts entwine and they fall in love.
However, Aneurin has a powerful secret which threatens to tear them apart more than racism of Ersland ever could. And Yorwrath, Aneurin’s brother, is there waiting for their bond to break…with a slave collar with Valentina’s name on it.
Eyes of Fire
The earthy aroma of a wood before a storm still gives Valentina pause even after two years. It’s the scent she forever associates with Aneurin, the lover taken from her by the ancient curse of the Swynwr, that same power which crowned him King of the Elves and now walks in his flesh. She told him that she would free him, that they would be together again and she wholly intends to keep that promise—no matter the cost.
Upon discovering the existence of a book which holds the key to breaking the curse, she sets out across the war-ravaged Ersland countryside with Aneurin’s brother Yorwrath, the vicious bandit, now her lover, by her side. While traveling they cross paths with the mysterious Myrddin, an elf who opens Valentina’s eyes to a new facet of their culture. A darker, more primal part entrenched deeply in sex, magic, prophecy and death.
