Author: Amy Ruttan

Amy discovered her love of the written word when she realized that she could no longer act out the fantastical romances in her head with her dolls. Writing about delicious heroes was much more fun than playing with plastic men dolls with the inevitable flesh-colored tighty-whities.

She loves history, the paranormal, and will spew out historical facts like a volcano, much to her dearest hubby's chagrin.

When she's not thinking about the next sensual romp, she's chasing after two rug rats and reading anything spicy she can get her hands on.

He’d been burned once by her love…

Bryant Quill left the airforce after his tour of duty. He came north to work for his old airforce buddy as a bush pilot in Yellowknife and to find the one who got away. The one who not only left a mark on his soul, but on his skin.

Lexie Nevue has learned to hide. Growing up as a strong telekinetic, she was shamed into keeping her abilities secret, but it’s not so much the telekinesis that bothers her, but the fact that when she feels any strong emotion her world literally burns down. After hurting the only man she ever loved, she fled back to her roots in northern Canada.

She’s hiding from Bryant, from the Lotus Circle and now she’s hiding from a terrorist organization that wants to use her telekinetic abilities to recover something deep beneath the permafrost. Something that can bring about the end of the world.

When Bryant is contacted by Mike D’Antoni of the mysterious Phoenix Agency, his mission is clear, to save the world he has to risk being burned again.

Hattie isn’t the best medicine woman in her order, but when an ancient evil threatens to escape, she’s the only one available to perform the spell to wake the great stone warrior from his slumber. Problem is, she’s not sure if she really believes in it, especially since the key component of the spell is her soul-shattering orgasm.

When the Warrior is summoned once again he is pleasantly surprised by the medicine woman who has called him, and has no problem giving her the pleasure she needs to complete the banishment spell, but something goes wrong. He still remains in the mortal realm instead of returning to stone. To make matters worse, he remembers nothing except the taste of the medicine woman on his lips.

They have two weeks before the new moon to fulfill the prophecy and they spend every moment wrapped up in each other, lost in passion. But time is ticking and there’s a price to pay for saving the world—one that may turn her stone Warrior to dust.
