 A Novella of the Elder Races

As a coroner, medusa Seremela Telemar has always felt more comfortable chatting over a dead body than over drinks. But when her wild niece, Vetta, runs off to Devil’s Gate, a lawless town that has sprung up overnight in a modern-day gold rush, she knows she has to extricate her before the rebellious girl gets into real trouble. Though she’s confident in her head snakes’ ability to defend her against attackers, Seremela is still a bit nervous about braving this modern-day Wild West by herself.

Vampyre Duncan Turner is not about to let his new co-worker go into that chaos alone. His Vampyric power and lawyer smarts make him the perfect ally, and the fact that he already had his eye on Seremela for more…personal reasons, doesn’t hurt matters. Any romantic thoughts pull up short, however, when they arrive at Devil’s Gate and learn Vetta is set to hang by morning.

In order to save Vetta and themselves, Seremela and Duncan are going to have to fight fire with force and magic with fangs. And pray they make it out of Devil’s Gate alive.

Warning: Contains mother effin’ snakes in planes, cars, tents, and beds. Luckily, our hot Vampyre hero doesn’t mind them one bit…

    I am glad you decided to give Seremela her own story, I loved her character in Serpent’s Kiss. I can’t wait for the official release!

    Love your work, Thea!

    I have to say that I do not read romance. At least I didn’t. I saw a sale for the audible version of Dragonbound and was listening as I traveled. All of a sudden I woke up and was hooked!!! I love your heroines, they are mouthy, intelligent and good for their hero. After that I ordered the next 3 in the series and now have ordered the Kindle versions of the next two and would preorder the next but I want Kindle or Audible versions. Thanks for many hours of laughter, joy, and steamy scenes. Hopefully you will involve more of the old characters in the newer novels, not just Dragos. Loved Oracle’s Moon with both Rune and Dragos and a short visit with Pia. Keep up the fun!
