After the Breaking, many flocked from their devastated homelands to the new province of Draema to begin anew. The people who called themselves Gaian chose to walk a different path. Now, love and danger bring them together again.
As Blademaster and First Heir to Draema and its Seven Colonies, Rhia Greysomne wants nothing more than to live her life as she always has-on her own terms. But when she learns that her father, the High Counsel, has summoned a childhood friend from across the border to protect her against an unknown threat, she is more than a bit put out. And worse, a case of mistaken identity finds them facing each other with blades drawn.
Who cares that he’s the one man who sets her blood on fire? So what if he’s the fabled Wind Storm, Protector of the Realm of Gaia? As far as she’s concerned, RuArk Miwatani is the spoiled boy she used to chase with her wooden practice blade after he’d yanked her braids as a child.
RuArk of Clan Miwatani is well aware Rhia doesn’t want his concern, his presence, and least of all, his protection. Sizzling attraction wars with pride and deadly circumstances. Will it bring them together…or drive her away?
Whatever the cost, RuArk is determined to keep his word to Rhia’s father, and the Ancestors who’ve shown him that she is indeed, his. But can he convince her that he has much more to offer than his sword?
There is one truth: Once passion is awakened, it is as potent and lethal as any storm.

Knowing what you know now of writing, publishing, and putting your art out into the world, if you could go back to the day you sat down to start typing in your very first manuscript, what words would you offer to yourself? Words of encouragement? Words of advice? Caution against certain pitfalls? Would you change anything about how you got to where you are today?
The publishing community is so much bigger than it was before the self-publishing boom and it continues to grow exponentially every day. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a handbook or support group. #AmWriting is a collection of letters written by authors from all different corners of the publishing community. The letters provide words of encouragement or advice to those just starting out or those who have become discouraged in their art. At Pure Textuality PR, we believe in supporting each other as a community, and we felt this project would be a good way to bring writers together and maybe give some new artists just the right nudge to keep going.
100% of the net proceeds of #AmWriting will be donated to The Wayne Foundation, a charity dedicated to offering aid and services to young women victimized by illegal sexual exploitation and the sexual trafficking of minors. For more information about The Wayne Foundation, you can visit them on the web at http://waynefdn.org.
Who is involved???
#AmWriting has a great list of more than 60 authors, including NYT bestselling author Jeaniene Frost!
