Lorcan's Bane

Eight hundred years ago and half a world away, Mirren gives little thought to the new religion. She is a healer and mystic for whom magic is the natural result of her kinship with Earth ~ surely nothing to incite men to murder.

But she has not met Prelate Lorcan, who upends Mirren’s world, unleashing ghastly dreams of her fiery doom and the bondage of one hundred generations of women yet unborn.

She struggles as best she can, until an enchanting drifter Ariel, offers to serve as Mirren's mentor in the arcane arts. In short order, undeniable longing, one for the other, becomes a near-fatal distraction.

Fleeing to the woods alone, Mirren seeks the only answer that matters ~ then or now: What if I am the only available hero?
