Isobel Sterling is a governess with many secrets—including an uncanny ability she’s been hiding her whole life, until the day arrives when she has to use it to save herself from a madman. But first she has to master it. Fast.

Governess Isobel Sterling feels fortunate to have found a safe haven in the Montgomery household. The children are kind and the lord and lady of the house leave her alone. Just when her life seems as good as it can get, mysterious visitors arrive from abroad.

At first Isobel is flattered by the single-minded attention she receives from their handsome young guest, Matteo Garibaldi. But when girls in the village go missing, Isobel has a terrible suspicion the disappearances are linked to the darkness she can see growing behind Matteo’s eyes. Filled with dread, she tries to avoid his company—until she is locked in with him for the night.

A Deal from L.B. Gilbert!

Final-Fire

Invested with the powers of Mother Nature, four women have been charged with the almost impossible task of maintaining order in the supernatural world and—when the crimes are extreme—the human world as well.

Diana, a fire Elemental, is almost burned out. Alone in the world (save for her Elemental sisters), she takes satisfaction in punishing those who’ve strayed so far into the black they’ve disrupted the balance. But her contentment is increasingly short-lived as she struggles with the limitations of her ability. An Elemental can track murderers to the ends of the earth, but not before it’s too late for their victims.

So when a child from a previous case goes missing, Diana is determined to find her. The only problem is, she may have to take on an entire coven of vampires to do it.

Exclusive Excerpt of FIRE

Diana had Daniel drive them to the safe house so she could change. She was no longer concerned with Alec knowing the location. After pulling on clean cargo pants, she joined him in the living room to search for her boots while he wandered around, checking out the various knick-knacks and weapons displayed. He’d already been through all the swords and crossbows in the gym and had even tested one of the maces.

He was fingering a fourteenth century Japanese Koto when she finally found her left boot.

He turned to her, shock lining his features. “This is from the Kamakura period. It’s spectacular. And priceless in certain circles.”

“Yeah, I know,” Diana said with genuine nonchalance, bending down to tie her shoelace.

“But this thing is not only for display. You. . .you’ve been using it.”

“It’s a weapon,” she said dryly. “It’s common for a soldier to train with a variety of them.”

Alec stared, mouth slightly open. “It’s worth thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars. I can’t believe you practice with this as if it’s any old sword,” he said, taking it in hand and turning to display it to her, as though he was trying to make her see it clearly.

Suppressing a smile, Diana took the sword from him and put it back in its holder. “All of the weapons you see here are used. We train with them throughout our lives. We have to be ready to use whatever comes to hand. It all depends on the situation. We hone our skills with these as well as our Elemental abilities. Sometimes it’s better not to have to start a fire.”

“But this sword,” he said pointing, “it’s meant to be used from horseback.”

“I know that,” Diana said with a laugh.

“You’ve trained with it on horseback?”

“Well, actually, I used my bike most of the time.” She turned to grab her jacket. “Horses don’t like fire.”

“And the other times?”

She paused. “Well, you remember the lion?”

Alec stopped short. “You can ride your element like a. . .a. . .”

“Yes,” she said pointedly, cutting him off before the mental imagery became too colorful. “I left a message for the girls while I was changing. They will look into Brenda’s whereabouts if she left a trail. If she’s dead, the Mother will know.”

“And She’ll tell you that? Speak to you directly?”

Diana looked up at him and decided to be honest. He was a sensitive. He might be capable of sensing it anyway, but might not know how to put it into words.

“Maybe, and maybe not in a timely fashion. She’s. . .grown quieter in the last decades. Especially where humans are concerned. Earth will try to commune with her since the rest of us haven’t had much luck at it. The Earth Elemental is closest to her by design.”

“Is that normal? For Her to be quieter sometimes?”

“There have been periods when She has fallen silent,” she admitted. “Those were bad times for everyone, Supes and humans alike. As for now, She hasn’t withdrawn yet. She’s just slow to respond. A strong sensitive might be affected—have a sense that something is not right. There are probably some worried witches out there right now.”
