All she had to do was keep one man safe... Raine McCord has no problem taking down the monsters of the world, it’s one of the reasons she’s so good at her job. So playing bodyguard to Cheveyo, head Magi of the Northwest, as he consults with the Southwest Kyn should be an easy assignment. Unfortunately, the simple task turns into a nightmare when Cheveyo is kidnapped and Raine is left for dead by one of the Kyn’s most feared beings, a Soul Stealer. The Stealer’s attack leaves lasting wounds, undermining Raine’s confidence as a warrior and damaging her unruly magic. Her ability to heal her mind and spirit hinges on the one man who can touch her soul, Gavin Durand. Compelled to face the emotions raging between them, they must embrace not only their stormy relationship but their evolving magic to escape the twisted threads of murder and betrayal to find Cheveyo. As Raine and Gavin come together and begin to unravel the complex web of secrets and hidden vendettas haunting the Southwest Kyn, they discover unsettling new truths that threaten their very existence.

From the Inside Flap:

Of all the monsters she'd ever tackled, this one was giving her more problems than she'd thought possible...

Barring her teeth, Raine set her feet, gripped her wrist blades, and let the last of the protective flames blink out, leaving her exposed.  The Stealer threw back its head, a long triumphant howl emerging from its throat. The sound echoed as the creature watched her with unholy glee.

"Bring it on, asshole," she taunted.

It began to stalk her. Instead of the smoke and shadow form from previous encounters, it now sported a massive wolf-like body. The head was still a Dali inspired nightmare of animals who seem to share the need for sharp, pointy teeth. Grateful the chindis had decided to bow this one out, Raine left her back unprotected so she could keep an eye on the monster in front of her.

Like the opening sequence in a dance, they matched steps.  Without warning, the Stealer sprang forward, lashing out with unsheathed claws. Ducking, Raine rolled right, blade extended, aiming for a gut swipe. The monster managed to twist its spine so her first cut only scored its skin. Black ichor oozed from the ragged wound. With lightning speed it spun, unfazed by the injury. This time its sharp claws dragged bloody furrows along her lower back. Ignoring the tug of pain from the wound, she stumbled to her feet, waiting for the next opening.

The Stealer lunged straight for her, knocking her down. Her skin shredded under its lethal nails as they ripped along her ribs and hips. Above her the monster snarled and snapped. Busy trying to keep the snapping jaws from her jugular with her left arm, she used the blade in her right to stab wherever she could. Her world  narrowed down to pure survival. 

'Damn it, Gavin, where are you?'

About the Author:

Growing up on the Arizona-Mexico border, Jami Gray was adopted at the age of 14 and suddenly became the fifth eldest of 37 children. She graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's in Journalism and three minors-History, English, and Theater.  Shortly after marrying her techie-geek hubby (who moonlighted as her best friend in high school) she completed a Masters in Organizational Management from University of Phoenix Oregon.
 
Now, years later, she's back in the Southwest where  she's outnumbered in her own home by two Star Wars obsessed boys, one Star Wars obsessed husband, and an overly-friendly, 105-pound male lab.  Writing is what saves her sanity.
