He lost his memory. She lost him.
In a town full of magic, mayhem, and murder, magical side effects aren't unheard of. Unfortunately, it's Addison's lover, Cael who's affected, and the fallout is significant. As a result of some mind-altering misfire, Cael no longer remembers her or the love they shared; he's only aware of his duty to his mentor and the Sectorium.
Addie's family and friends think she should keep the past a secret so Cael won't feel pressured into having feelings he can't remember, but Addie is crushed. She's not only lost her lover - the man with whom she shared a passion so intense it was one for the ages - but someone has stolen a powerful magical artifact that she was tasked with protecting. Her world has literally been turned upside-down, and her friend Aiden showing an inordinate amount of interest in her isn't helping.
Can Addie and Cael work together to uncover the secret of the missing crystal and stop it from falling into the wrong hands while rekindling their passion, or does fate have other things in store for them?
Previously published as A Secret Fate, and has been given a new title and new cover to better manifest the true spirit of the book.
About the Author
About Susan Griscom
I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, spending most of my time daydreaming or playing around in the mud. I grew out of the mud play, well, most of the time, a good soak in the mud is always fun. I still daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So I write to remember them. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play--a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course. I'm pretty sure it was the acting.
I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and tend to lean toward the unusual and edgy.
My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running hot, as does a steamy contemporary romantic suspense.
