In a quiet corner of the English countryside, an ancient temple to the Mother Goddess has survived for centuries in the care of supernaturally talented guardians. New to their ranks is Vale Avari - a brash American who has put the Atlantic Ocean between herself and her mysterious past.
Yet all is not well in the town of Quicksilver, where unearthly sounds and sightings drive rumors of the Wild Hunt roaming the night. When temple guardians begin to disappear, Vale must discover for herself if primeval magic is really responsible, or if the culprits are all too human. Plagued by a brute with a violent history and lusting after a dark-eyed man with a secret, Vale must turn the tables and hunt the hunters, before the Hunt rides for her.
This was formerly called The Temple, but has been updated, including new name and cover.
Heather Marie Adkins writes too much but still too little. She also has too many cats, not enough tequila, and a love affair with procrastination that is borderline unhealthy.
She has penned a boatload of novels: Stalked by Night (Vale Avari, Book One); Abigail (Witch Faery, Book One); His Haunting Kiss (His Kiss, Book One); Mother of All (Hedgewitch Mysteries, Book One); and Heaven Below (Goddess of Ptalonia, Book One). She may have hit a bestseller list once or twice in the past six years, and even made it to second round of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel contest in 2013.
Heather lives in north-central Kentucky with her long-suffering husband. When she’s not plotting her next story or herding felines, she works at the library in public relations. Find out more about her at heathermarieadkins.com.
