Turning Leaf

(The first book in the Awakening series)
A novel by

After a lifetime of searching, tiger shifter Mir has finally found his true mate...too bad she's a mercenary for the Goddess possessed by a sex demon.

As a little girl, all Leaf Hatathli dreamed of was growing up and having a family of her own, but fate had something else in mind for her. Instead, she's spent her life as a mercenary working for the Goddess, acting as her hand of justice in a world torn apart by the reappearance of magic. It's a lonely business, and Leaf had given up on the idea of ever being someone's beloved. After all, who could love a woman who's possessed by a lust demon?

When Mir DePaul, Alpha of the Shiraz Pride, is captured by slavers he never expected rescue to come in the form of his true mate. And he certainly never expected his mate to be a Shadow, a human sharing a body with the spirit of a demon. He shares his body with his tiger spirit, and they both know their mate when they see her. Even if she refuses to believe it. They'll do everything they can to convince Leaf and her demon that their love is real... as soon as they escape the contingent of death wizards hunting them down.

Everything has a price, and Mir will do anything to keep his mate safe while she tries to save the world from an ancient evil that threatens them all.

In a world full of sex witches and lust demons there is a lot of hanky panky going on, so fair warning you may have some clutch your pearls, or vibrator, moments.
