Duty. Devotion. Desire. When fate brings two isolated people together, love is in the cards.

An A Novella of the Elder Races Novella

As a palace guard and assassin for the Dark Fae, Xanthe always wore a mask, hiding her emotions to do her duty. But when her identity is compromised, she trades undercover work for guarding Queen Niniane—a position that often brings her in contact with Chancellor Aubrey Riordan.

Aubrey’s trust is shattered. A year ago his wife tried to assassinate their new queen in his name, a betrayal of everything he believes in. And now an attack on his life is proof the dark conspiracy is not yet over. Although injured and weak, Aubrey can’t help but be drawn to this shy assassin and loyal protector. Xanthe is everything Naida wasn’t, and the passion she stirs in him is something he thought had long passed him by.

Warning: Take a man recovering from an assassination attempt, the assassin sworn to protect him, add in a magical Tarot card deck and an isolated cabin, and watch the sparks fly!

Hunter's Season is the next book in the Elder Races series by Thea Harrison. Xanthe is a soldier in the Dark Fae Army and loyal to the new Queen, Niniane. After completing a task for the Queen and Tiago,a Wyr lord and the Queen's mate, Xanthe is given a seven-day off to recover from being away from home for so long. When she reports to the palace, she is surprised to find that the Queen wants her to become one of her trusted guards. At the same time, Xanthe finds herself in the company of Aubrey Riordan,Chancellor of the Dark Fae, a man she has admired for many, many years. Not only has she admired him, but she has been a little in love with Riordan and was stunned when the Chancellors wife was killed when she attempted to murder the new Dark Fae Queen. When Riordan is attacked by unknown assailants, Xanthe wants to be the one to hunt them down. But the Queen and Tiago deny her request. They want her to take the Chancellor to her own home; a remote cabin away from the city to protect him until he is recovered. As Aubrey recovers from the near-fatal wounds he suffered in the attack, he comes to know the young woman. And he begins to develop deep feelings for the much younger woman. Feelings that are returned by Xanthe. When she returned to the Dark Fae lands after completing her assignment for Tiago, she brought a mystical deck of Tarot cards and a stray kitten she calls Mouse with her. The Tarot cards seem to go to the person who needs them; someone needing to find their true love. And Mouse was a total surprise to me. I liked the wee kitten and was surprised to find out she was.... I have enjoyed The Elder Races books from the start and can't wait to read Lord's Fall the next book.

An enjoyable short story that I read from beginning to end without stopping. The same fine writing from Thea Harrison, yet it a somewhat condensed version. A great way to fill in the gaps between novels.
