Warning! This erotica is suitable only for mature audiences, but quite pleasurable for those who enjoy spectacularly sexual romance. Cenda has awoken from a deadly fever that claimed the life of her precious toddler daughter as a fire witch, capable of generating although not controlling flames from within herself. Grayson, self-styled Duke of Ombra, is a mercenary out to seduce Cenda and bring her to the one wizard who has promised him his heart's desire. He is a man at odds with his own shadow, which is capable of some separate thoughts and actions. He desperately wishes for his shadow, Shad, to be out of his life. Cenda and Grayson are The Flame and The Shadow in this highly erotic romantic fantasy, as they learn to love themselves and eventually each other.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Some are drawn to the light. Some are drawn to the dark. Some desire both… Grayson of Concordia, known on countless worlds as the Duke of Ombra, is a mercenary, a sorcerer of shadows—a man whose soul is consumed by darkness. For Gray, the bleak savagery in his heart is manifest in an entity he calls Shad. He has long resisted Shad's enticements, but when he is hired to kidnap a fire witch, he seizes the chance to restore his soul—no matter the cost.

Cenda's heart is ash. Since the death of her precious baby daughter, life has lost all meaning for the fire witch. Slowly, she has worked to master her powers and go on living. But when she encounters Gray, her will is no match for her desire. But her love may not survive the terrible discovery of Gray's betrayal…
