Six Sentence Sunday
I’m pleased to be participating again on Six Sentence Sunday. Today’s six is from my debut Fires of Justice releasing October 17 from Ellora’s Cave. It follows from the excerpt I last shared earlier. You can read that here.
A whiff of smoke and sandalwood tickled her nose. “You’re a fire shifter?” Since they could take the form of mythical creatures, fire shifters were even rarer than fire witches.

I’d love to know what you think. And take a hop around the web and visit the other fabulous writers on Six Sentence Sunday.
Full Book Blurb
Always read the fine print when swearing an eternal oath to gods and guardians…
Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.
Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.
