Lara thought she had time to ease into her role as Water Elemental, guardian and defender of the sea and all its creatures. Time to learn the skills to rise to the next Challenge, many decades away. Then she felt the shift.
When Sullivan intrudes upon her oceanside sanctuary, stirring memories of the blazing night he bound her, body and soul, to her new life, the shark king confirms her suspicions. A new Challenge is upon them. And Sullivan, the prime suspect in her predecessor’s death, demands her trust.
Sullivan remembers the carnage—human and paranormal—the last time the Elementals failed to win Challenge. It must not happen again. But in the six years since he reluctantly left Lara’s side, she hasn’t learned nearly enough to defeat a rapidly rising enemy. A gargantuan Demonos that makes him look like a minnow.
Shifters and elementals don’t mix, but Sullivan’s made a deal with the gods to teach her to fight. Now if he could only convince his wayward body to put aside the searing memory of her touch. Because distraction now could spell disaster to them all.
Claire lives in Los Angeles, so many of her stories are set there, too. But she is originally from Brookline, Massachusetts, so that location frequently pops up in her work, too. Claire spends her free time writing, doing animal rescue, and enjoying the sunshine. She specializes in writing romances of all kinds and never shies away from the “between the sheets” elements!
Look for the third and final book of the Redemption of the Gorgons series to be released in December, 2020!
Another great in this spectacular series. Thinking she had enough time to get adjusted to her water Elemental role, Lara finds out this isn’t so. I was totally immersed in the story. I can’t wait for the next one.
This is a delicious third in the series, with the heroine, Ondine (formerly known as Lara), taking on the shark king, Sullivan, as her partner to face Challenge.
Disclaimer: I'm personally acquainted with the author.
Ondine and Sullivan make a terrific couple, and I love the tie-in the Haitian gods and goddesses, as well as Ondine's Demonos opponent, the Iku-Turso (a Finnish sea monster, think Ursula from the Little Mermaid on steroids.) There is a blending of all kinds of god and goddess legends in all these novels., which I very much enjoy, and I am delighted there are going to be a couple more novels in this world. The world building is excellent, each book works as a standalone, and the romance is suitably steamy. Recommend.
