Allyn Keely, Celtic artist and friend of Faerie finally finds a man she can love. But, she's older than he is and faces the insurmountable task of helping him realize his destiny in the Otherworld.
Successful businessman Jaye Zeroun prides himself on his realistic, but lonely, view of life. Until Allyn knots her way around his heart and fills his life with a fantasy he refuses to believe. Then danger threatens their love, forcing him to either accept a deadly battle or lose the very things he never included in his life: a family and a love beyond his wildest imagining
Jaye leaned over the sink in the small hotel bathroom and stared into the mirror. A disgusted glance fell to the watch lying on the counter. Two in the morning. Once again sleep escaped him. Passing a comb through his disheveled hair moved the waves into some semblance of order. He yanked on the closest pair of slacks, grabbed his key card, left the room, and hoped he could wander the hotel again until he was tired enough to fall asleep.
His lonely supper was spent daydreaming about Celtic knots surrounding Allyn and pulling her to him. Many of the restaurantâ€™s female patrons tried to capture his attention, but none of them had violet eyes. Jaye punched the elevatorâ€™s lobby button fiercely. She just disappeared. A young man sat at her booth when heâ€™d checked the sales area after his meal, but Jaye refused to ask after her. Damn his pride sometimes.
Jaye leaned against the doors with both hands as the elevator sank to a stop and waited for them to open. Thick carpeting cushioned his bare feet when he stepped into the lobby. Across the open expanse of space, Allyn sat in a deep chair, watching the elevators. Jaye thought--hoped--she was waiting for him.
The first impulse was to rush across the lobby like a love-struck teenager and fall at her feet. He stopped in his tracks. Love-struck? Jaye Zeroun? Nah. Debating his feelings while he crossed the lobby, he came to no answer before he sank into the chair next to Allyn.
Her soft voice filled him with surprising contentment. "Canâ€™t sleep?â€
Almost afraid to speak, afraid of what he might say, Jaye shook his head and took a deep breath anyway. "You?â€ Was that a slight crack in his voice?
Allyn lay her hand on his. "Iâ€™m a night person, especially these nights when the moon is dark.â€
"Oh, a vampire.â€ Jaye cringed. Smooth conversation. Sheâ€™s gonna think Iâ€™m a total nutcase.
Allyn laughed. "Not even close. I simply enjoy the quiet and solitude of the night. Sometimes large groups of people, like at these Cons, are distressing to me. And, I get some of my best ideas at night.â€
Jaye willed his voice to stay in one register and took another deep breath. The touch of her hand was playing havoc with his raw nerves; his skin tingled and burned with the contact. "Iâ€™ve been having trouble sleeping lately. Ever since I got the tattoo, I just canâ€™t seem to get any rest. Itâ€™s not that it hurts and the itching is almost gone. In fact I really donâ€™t think my not sleeping has anything to do with the tattoo. Both just happened around the same time. I, well, I just canâ€™t even seem to explain it.â€
"I understand. Have you tried--?â€
*lizzie made up games and stories to keep her company as a child. So, a witch lived in Grampaâ€™s weather research station and was only held at bay by a certain weed. An ancient road grader became a boat carrying wild adventurers to islands filled with sheep that turned into lions and cannibals.
Now, the stories of her imagination are beginning to find their way to paper and pixels. Filled with fantasy and love, these tales take her far from the mundane world.
When *lizzie has to return to that mundane life, sheâ€™s a lead cook at a university dining service. Happily, the folks she works with have become accustomed to her writerâ€™s ways and just shake their heads when she goes off on some fantastical tangent, asks strange what if questions, or just has to find a piece of paper and a pen that actually writes. One of her greatest delights is to watch the joy of writing fill a friend, and sheâ€™ll do anything to help them achieve their dream.
And someday, when she grows up, *lizzie wants to be eccentric.
*lizzie adores hearing what you think about her tales.
"It sparklesâ€¦â€ -- Margaret B Lawrence, author of Caresse: A Loving Touch
Lizzie Starr pens an original romantic fantasy with Keltic Flight. I enjoyed learning that faeries can be sexy. The winged hero Korin faced difficult, even lethal obstacles sure to destroy his chance to win Nanceen. His determination and devotion made this inter-species romance a very pleasurable read.
