She always wanted him to fall at her feet. She didn’t want it to be in a pool of blood.
Ariadne Green is a young woman living a simple life. She waits tables at her family’s restaurant, Ariadne’s Kitchen. She pals around with the regulars. She has an apartment over the restaurant. She casts spells and brews potions with her mother on the weekend. She’s been studying magic since she could walk, and knows not to share that knowledge with outsiders. And she’s been in love with Ben Bern as long as she can remember.
She doesn’t know that her mother has been keeping something from her. A whole world of something that’s about to come crashing down into her lap.
Ben Bern is a Rochester beat cop. He’s also got a bear inside him. He’s had his protective eye on Ariadne since they were kids, but when he first shifted, it made him think twice about letting her in. He’s about to get into trouble that he can’t handle alone.
When he lets Ariadne save his life, he draws her into exactly what he was trying to protect her from. And when the healing spell goes awry, they find themselves bound together in a way that could endanger them both.
Ariadne’s about to learn what her mother never wanted to teach her. Will she survive the lesson? Will she finally break down Ben’s resolution never to bring her into his life? Will her mother completely blow her top when she finds out what’s been going on in her absence?
Rochester may never be the same.
