For eighteen years, Coral Crowe has been living with half a spirit. This being has helped her keep and protect the vase where the last of the royals have been held in order to protect their race. Now that they have been set free, the fairy spirit must be reconnected with its other half, or it will become one with Coral, destroying the fairy princess, and mother of another set of Wolfairy twins that Coral was destined to become.
The only problem is that Coral has become so infused with the spirit, she doesn’t know what parts of her core belong to her…or the spirit, making separation a difficult and potentially deadly process for her…
And her fated mate.
Drew Furgeson watched his older brothers’ mate and produce a new being: the Wolfairy. The last thing he wants to do is join the ranks of fatherhood, especially when the matchmaker informs him that his fated one is not only the insanely way too happy Coral Crowe. To make matters worse, his instincts are spot on about her not being what everyone thinks.
But one single passionate kiss pulls Coral’s core personality to the surface. She and Drew begin their race against time to find the spirit’s other half, otherwise, an entire species will be wiped from the planet before it ever really had a chance.
Coral and Drew are mates, but something is stopping them from recognizing that fact. There is another entity or spirit inside Coral, they have to separate, or he will die. The fate of all the wolfairies are in Coral’s hands.
This is a favorite scene as Coral becomes able to communicate with it.
“We’re both in contact with the being, who thinks his name is Norse,” Drew said, getting his own mug before sitting at the table. He winked when he glanced in her direction.
Her stomach filled with butterflies. It reminded her of the first time she’d ever smelled a fairy.
Wait? She’d smelled one? She was one. So that didn’t make sense to her, but maybe it was Norse who had…
No. He was a fairy too.
She sucked in air through her nose, trying to decipher all the scents in the room.
It was the scent of the Wolfairies that caught her attention. She’d loved the scent of Finn and Ivy the second she’d lifted one of them into her arms. She could rest her nose against their tiny, little heads and take in the sweet, innocent aroma all day long.
A tickle of a memory of something similar massaged her mind. Maybe it was a memory of Norse?
Well, she’d bother him and Drew with that idea later.
“You spoke to it?” Nico asked with wide eyes. “Like projected with it?”
“Exactly.” Drew raised his mug. “He seems like a nice enough fairy and not only do we need to get him out, we need to put him somewhere to keep what’s left of him together.”
“Left?” Isadore asked.
“He feels like he’s disappearing,” Coral added.
“The vase,” Isadore said. “It worked for Ralph and all the other Royals. That should be a good place for him.”
“Why don’t we go get it?” Nico set the griddle next to the sink. “Maybe all she needs is to come in contact with it.”
“I was the one hiding it, so I don’t think that is the case.” Coral remembered feeling the positive energy that came off the glass bottle, and it really helped her when her sister had been out of the house when they’d been kids. It helped her stay happy and focused on… no. It helped Norse stay on task. Even though he had no idea he was inside her to protect her, he’d done it.
“You haven’t touched it since I opened it.” Isadore jumped from the table. “It can’t hurt to try.”
“Go get it and we’ll devour these pancakes,” Drew said, stabbing a fork into a fluffy stack.
“I’m starving.” Coral followed his lead, waving her fork in the air and smiling. “We’ll be here, enjoying these.”
Nico laughed, shoving a laptop across the table. “And looking at the flash drive Cheryl gave you because I think this might be important. And you might have Norse, or whoever, watch it too.”
“I’d forgotten about this.” Drew put the stick in the side of the computer.
“I like weddings,” Coral said, then nearly choked on her pancakes as everyone in the room stared with her as if she’d just caught the garter belt.

There is a lot that happens in this book, but separating Coral and Norse isn’t all that needs to be done. It’s just one more step.
As the reader we get to know more than the characters a very interesting twist. Then there are the wolves and witches that don’t want the prophesies to come true.
Plenty of action, suspense, a mating and so much more as this story unfolds. I really can’t wait for the next book!
