Jill Ramsower

Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance

When Rebecca Peterson walks away from everything she knows to follow her dreams in Ireland, she never expects to be thrown into a world of vicious Fae and deadly secrets. On the dreary streets of Belfast, her terrifying nightmares are rekindled, and this time they aren’t confined to her imagination. Complicating her life further, Becca crosses paths with two mysterious strangers—both alluring in different ways, but are either of them to be trusted?
Her journey takes her deep into the treacherous Shadow Lands, where both her knowledge and courage will be tested. Navigating this new landscape of deceit and manipulation is paramount if she is to stop hordes of blood-thirsty Faeries from invading Earth. With time running out, will her limited training be enough to take on a centuries old enemy hell-bent on death and destruction? To keep those she loves safe, Becca is willing to risk it all.

In this captivating duet, Jill Ramsower takes her readers from the streets of Belfast on a harrowing journey to the most dangerous corners of Faery, where fear is a lethal enemy and trust is a luxury few can afford.

I was satisfied with my progress—I had advanced far beyond the naive girl who had arrived in Belfast months earlier. However, there was no way to know if it was enough until I faced Morgan on Beltane. There was no safety net or stunt doubles, no retakes or backup plans—it was a trial by fire and I had to win at all costs.
By evening I had withdrawn into myself, feeling the weight of knowing so many lives were in my hands. Lochlan drew me from my thoughts as he sat down beside me. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so beautiful as you are when you wield your magic.”
I offered him a thin smile. “Thanks.”
“Want to tell me what’s wrong? You haven’t been yourself all day.”
“I’m worried I won’t know what to do to stop Morgan,” I confessed, dropping my eyes to the sandy ground.
“You’ve spent countless hours training, learning, and using every opportunity you can to improve yourself. You’ve evolved from a timid mouse to a mighty lion—have confidence in those abilities.”
In the months we had spent together training, never had Lochlan weaved together so many uplifting, complimentary words. I sat stunned and my chin quivered ever so slightly with a buildup of emotion.
“If you cry, I will take back every word of what I said,” Lochlan warned with a quirk to his lips.
I couldn’t help but laugh as I gave him a playful shove. His eyebrows rose in challenge and I bolted from where I sat with him hot on my trail. When he caught up with me he pulled me back against his chest, lifting me off the ground, and spinning me around in circles as I squealed and laughed.
When he set me back on my feet, I turned to face him and his full lips lowered down to close over mine. His kiss was a thing of legends—it made my problems feel manageable and the future seem brighter. It was the touch of warm sun on a chilly morning and the bliss of cold water on a parched throat—refreshing and comforting and right in every way.
We pulled back from one another slowly, and in a land where there was no breeze and no nocturnal bugs chittering, the only sound in the night air was our labored breathing. He took my hand and led me to the cabin to rest for the night, tightly wrapped in each other’s arms.
