I really think it captures Lily and Aidan so beautifully, and it's hot as hell, isn't it? For those of you unfamiliar with the story, Healing the Mage is the next book set in the Magiste world of New Orleans. You may recognize his name from In the Devil's Arms, though he didn't make an appearance, he is Devlin's son. The same with Lily - she is Helene's goddaughter, and only mentioned in passing, But these two had been wrangling for their own story since they came into existence, and now it's here. Here's the blurb (a special thanks to Shoshanna Evers for your help with this!)
Lily Prentiss wishes she could ignore her inborn healing magic so she can live life on her terms, not follow the path her Magiste family chose for her. But when she stumbles across Aidan Marchand in the excruciating throes of evolving into a Mage, her touch is all that stops his pain and she can no longer deny her powers. When the sexy Dom seduces her into willing submission, she finds she doesn’t want to resist and actually enjoys giving up control.
Aidan has more to worry about than just his rapidly maturing powers – his business partner is blackmailing him into funding a venture that involves kidnapping young girls both magical and mortal, and selling them as sex slaves. Even as Lily’s touch eases Aidan's pain, he knows staying with her puts her in danger from his enemies. But the gift of her sexual submission helps him even more than her healing magic...so how can he let her go?
Healing the Mage will be available from Noble Romance Publishing on February 28, 2011. Stop back here - I'll be posting a couple of excerpts and giving away a copy or two!
