Only available as an enovella, the prequel to the second novel in the dark and sexy Imnada Brotherhood trilogy about shapeshifters in Regency-era England.

Neither actress Sarah Hayes nor London’s most eligible bachelor Sebastian Commin, Earl of Deane, has ever forgotten their one and only scandalous night of white hot passion or the differences in their social positions that make a future together impossible. So when they discover that they’ll be fellow guests at a house party, they vow to keep each other at arm’s length. A vow broken when they find themselves caught up in a mystery involving a brutal attack on an Imnada shape-shifter and an unexplained entity known as the Naxos.

Each clue they uncover reveals more about the ancient Imnada enemy—monstrous soul-feeders with the power to devour worlds. Each fiery encounter between the aristocrat and the entertainer underscores the raw desire that crackles the very air between them until Sebastian is convinced to make Sarah his wife, no matter the cost to his reputation. He just needs to convince Sarah, who cares for him too much to allow his future to be ruined by marrying a low-born actress. It’s only when the sinister Naxos strike again and Sebastian’s life is threatened that Sarah realizes she’s willing to risk a little scandal in order to save the world…and the man she loves.

In this continuation, we find another type of evil being trying to senslave and eradicate humans. The Naxos, nasty beings those, they belong to a hive mind. Ugh! I enjoyed this mainly because it furthered Lucan's story a bit. He is known as the Kingkiller, and I am just dying to get to know him better. Our spotlighted couple however, Sarah and Sebastion get the bulk of the focus and this was just fine.

Sarah, an acclaimed actress and beauty, is set to become the bride of an Italian prince when she comes face to face with her true love Sebastian. Because of his nobility, the Ton would never accept a relationship. Foreigners are allowed to marry beneath them because they are well..... foreign. Sounds like the British aristocracy to me. Anyway there is the usual magic, foul play, secrets, plots and lots of romance, so don't miss this quick but compelling novella. Stay tuned! Much more to come throughout the month.

Hmm sounds good. How would it read as a stand alone?

You could, but you might scratch your head a time or two. The main couple have their thing and then in the background are the Imnada.

That's neat that there are the filler novellas to get to know the characters better.
