Darah took what she thought would be an easy assignment -- wake up a tree. Nothing to it, except this tree rouses with a case of morning wood.
Shirish has been asleep for the last few decades and is eager to get reacquainted with the world, starting with Darah. She wants to believe they have a future together but the past has unfinished business with Shirish.
Family secrets long buried threaten to set fire to their budding relationship. Without help, Darah fears their final act of love will be to burn together.
Praise for On the Case
"...a truly intriguing tale of love, destiny, and mystery. Darah and Shirish form an incredibly strong and powerful bond, and I love the idea of Guardian...well written, and very erotic."

About the Author
Whether as D. Rene� Bagby or Zenobia Renquist, Rene� lives in her imagination. When not traveling through her fantasy worlds, she can be found in Maryland living with her husband and two cats.
She is an Air Force brat turned Air Force wife, which means she's accustomed to travel and does it whenever possible (so long as she doesn't have to fly). Her favorite pastime is torturing her characters on their way to happily-ever-after for the enjoyment of her readers.
On the few occasions her muse flees the scene of the crime, Rene� likes to read (comics, manga, and romance), go to the movies, play a few levels of whichever puzzle game has hijacked her interest or experiment with a new chain mail weave.

"Renquist's characters are so lifelike and unique that reading her work is like watching a good movie unfold. You fall in love with her characters, you care about them, and that's what makes her writing so addictive." -- Sara Jay
