Note: This novella takes place at the same time as events in Fallow (Whyborne & Griffin 8).
Shy secretary Maggie Parkhurst knows there’s nothing special about her. She’s neither sorceress, nor fighter, nor scholar. What could she possibly have to offer Persephone, the chieftess of the inhuman ketoi—and the woman Maggie’s fallen in love with?
After Maggie’s friend Irene goes missing under mysterious circumstances, she has no choice but to turn to Persephone for help. When the trail leads to a shadowy acting troupe, they discover a plot that stretches much farther than a single vanished woman.
But when a dark truth is revealed, Maggie must choose between a man from her past…and the impossible yearnings of her heart.
About the Author
Jordan L. Hawk grew up in the wilds of North Carolina, where she was raised on stories of haints and mountain magic by her bootlegging granny. After using a silver knife in the light of a full moon to summon her true love, she turned her talents to spinning tales. She weaves together couples who need to fall in love, then throws in some evil sorcerers and undead just to make sure they want it bad enough. In Jordan’s world, love might conquer all, but it just as easily could end up in the grave.

First I just want to say I read this back in February and how in the world I never posted a review is beyond me but better late than never as the saying goes. I don't often read F/F romances but it is most certainly not outside my comfort zone, honestly I really don't have a comfort zone as I read all kinds. Simply put, Undertow is a brilliant addition to the Wyborne & Griffin universe. I've been hoping for awhile now that Miss Parkurst would find someone to fill her heart, she's such a lovely character, shy and yet she has a spark about her that has been waiting to be ignited. Some of you might think I'm saying one needs love to be strong, well I'm not although I do think we need love in our lives but it doesn't have to be of the signifigant other variety but sometimes we need love to show us that we are capable of so much more in life. Anywho, the magic between Miss Parkurst and Persephone is beautifully written as befitting the W&G world that Jordan L Hawk has created. And, yes I know that Miss Parkhurst's first name is Maggie but in my mind she will always be Miss Parkhurst. Undertow is a wonderful novella that is set at the same time as Fallow(#8) and since I forgot to review this when originally read it and have since read Draakenwood(#9) I can say if F/F romance is not really your cup of tea, you don't have to read it to follow the series. Needless to say when Whyborne discovers his sister and his secretary during Draakenwood its wonderfully done and fitting of all three characters. However, I highly recommend reading Undertow as it's a wonderful tale that made me smile and I can't imagine being a W&G fan and not reading Miss Parkhurst & Persphone's beginning.
