Overview

In a realm beset by natural disasters, only the magical abilities of the bonded Pairs—Source and Shield—make the land habitable and keep the citizenry safe. The ties that bind them are far beyond the relationships between lovers or kin—and last their entire lives…



Whether they like it or not.



The weather in the city of High Scape is off the charts. It’s snowing in the middle of summer, and the townsfolk are desperate for Shield Lee Mallorough and Source Shintaro Karish to fix it—which they can’t do. But try explaining that to an angry mob…



Meanwhile, there’s a crazed killer targeting aristocrats. Karish has forfeited the Dukedom of Westsea to continue working as a Source, but Lee fears that technicality won’t matter to the murderer. It certainly doesn’t matter to Karish’s mother, who’s bound and determined that he take the title.



Only by working together will Lee and Karish be able to figure out the weather, catch the killer before it’s too late, and most importantly…get rid of Karish’s mother.

Read an Excerpt

With a mother like this…;

 Karish was never meant to be the Duke. His older brother had had the title, and from what I learned had been thrilled to indulge in the aristocratic lifestyle, but he’d ruined everyone’s expectations by dying before marrying or having children. That left it to his mother, the Dowager Duchess, to choose the new titleholder. For some reason, she’d chosen her second son, the Source she’d been happy to send away to the academy, the son who’d never had a moment of training in the duties of being a titleholder and a landlord, when there were several more qualified cousins clambering to take the title.
 Karish hadn’t wanted the title, for which I’d be forever grateful. He couldn’t be both a Source and a Duke, with all the Duke’s responsibilities. If he had taken the title, he wouldn’t have been able to work as a Source, which would mean he’d have no use for me. Bonded to him, I wouldn’t be able to work with any other Source. I would have been left with nothing to do.
 Karish pulled back and straightened his shoulders. “The Empress obviously misunderstands the gravity of the situation and merely needs instruction.”
 “And the fact that pursuing the title could get you hanged, what about that?”
 “That’s just the law. What is the law to her?”
 Marvelous. The blasted woman was going to get us both killed.

    A good Sequel

    Great story but the author tries to do to much. I enjoyed the mystery and solving its twist. My only problem is that the backstory seems incomplete. You are teased by the secondary characters and how they might affect the Heroes and then... For all that it's well paced touching in places, and if you have read Resenting the Hero, well worth the time.

    OK, I'm buying the series

    So, she's taking longer to put the hero and the heroine together than I would. I like for couples to have adventures together. But I'm still buying the series.

    Loved this book

    I love all of the books in this series. There is not one that is a clunker.
