A quest for freedom may be derailed by their intense attraction…

Niall Quinn, mage and the finest thief in the Black Tower, is the fae’s best hope for freedom. Only he stands a chance of tracking down and retrieving the missing bosca fadbh pieces from the Summer Queen. But he meets his match in Elizabeth Cely Saintjohn, who has taken control of the pieces on the Summer Queen’s behalf—and has refused to give them up.


Elizabeth is an asrai, a rare English water fae, and she may be the only fae in Piefferburg stealthier than Niall. She has her own reasons for guarding the two pieces and wanting the walls of Piefferburg to remain intact—even if it means denying her fae sisters and brothers their freedom. Her mother’s life depends on it.

Torn between his duty to obtain the pieces at any cost—and the shocking lust Elizabeth has stirred in him—Niall must convince Elizabeth to surrender the pieces, or else he may have no choice but to destroy her and all she holds dear…

  1. I haven’t loved a guy, but I know I’ve done a ton of stupid things to get a guy’s attention – good or bad. The most extreme thing I did (and it isn’t even that bad) is cut my hair b/c the guy I was interested in liked shorter hair.


  2. I don’t think I’ve ever done anything really crazy. I did help a friend once by dressing up like a flower delivery person and giving her crush a floral delivery. Kind of silly at the time – it was in high school.

  3. Drove an extra 6 hours roundtrip one night to pick him up. After already driving 6 hours to get home in the first place. Total drive time that day – 12 hours.


  4. have call everyday to someone

    congrats ont he book and great contest whoo


  5. Lied & snuck around to see him. 12 years of marriage & going strong.


  6. absolutely nothing thats the crazy thing


  7. The craziest thing I’ve done for love is marry him after the police showed up at my parents house to show us his rap sheet. But I don’t think it was that crazy, since he hadn’t done anything bad in the past 5 years.


  8. I got married in Vegas. Although, I’m not sure it counts as crazy since we planned it and there were about 60 people that went with us, but it sure was fun!


  9. Worst thing I have ever done for love is lie to myself.
    Pretending feelings were more than they really were.
    On both our sides.
    Because I so desparately wanted them to be real.
    Which to me is the worst kind of lie and also the saddest.


  10. Crazy, oh I am lame and have done nothing crazy at all. Craziest thing is something like giving him a pat on his ass in public lol


  11. I posted about the contest on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/katemarcille


  12. Hmm craziest thing for love? Would have to be in one weekend deciding to leave my home, friends and family to move 300 miles north to be with my soul mate and now husband. 15 years on we are still going strong :)


  13. Oh I seem to have retweeted too ;)

  16. Hmm… call up a crush, pretending to be an opinion pollster? ;p

    Sooooo glad to be past that!


  17. I told my entire book club about this contest today!!! I love my book club friends like they were like my sisters, and they were very excited to learn about the contest because I have turned them all on to your writing!!! I just finished rereading the first three books to this series, and it is a good thing I did because I loaned my copies out today. I am hoping that next month we will be reading this installment of the series as our book club book.

    Only one more week!!!! YAY!!!


  18. 1. After receiving a letter from my sweetheart, I drove all night just to see him.
    2. Another time, I took a Final Exam in College in 10 minutes so I could leave to see him. The professor wanted me to stay the entire hour…said it would take an hour to complete the exam…by the way I made 98 on exam. lol
    We’ve been married 40 years & he’s still my sweetheart.


  19. I got married!! Dumb, dumb, dumb.


  20. This is my second entry. I emailed a friend and told her come enter. I hope she does it.


  21. I’ve not yet fallen in love, but if I were to, I’m afraid I’d be one of the crazies who would do absolutely anything to keep it :smile:


  22. Congrats on your latest Anya – hate that I’ve missed your celebration for the most part. Looks like you’ve been blessed by the bookcover gods again :) – I love all of your covers !

    The craziest thing I did for love… hmm…. driving 6 hours for anniversary with my ex after just being released from the ER for food poisoning would be it I think.

    tweeted – https://twitter.com/#!/pams00/status/166181270274056195


  23. The craziest thing I did for love was get married as a teenager. Been together for 37 years now, and I still adore the man.


  24. Never done anything crazy for love(yet)…never been in love.


  25. The craziest thing i’ve done for love… I just bought half of my partners car, so that he has enough money to continue modifying/upgrading it.


  26. Craziest thing…hmm. That would be just being patient and proving I care. When you know both people care and one is trying to push the other away, just being there can go a long way ;).

    Thanks for the contest and 1 more day til release!!!


  27. Craziest thing I did for love?

    Hubs and I drove the Gatlinburg,TN New Years wkend 13yrs ago and eloped. It was our lil secret for 2 wks when it was finally announced in the paper – that is exactly how my dad found out about it too. lol

    Stupidest thing I ever did (BEFORE HUBS)- I took a train across the country (from AL to Cali) to meet up w/ my ex. at the end of the trip…he was still an ex. BUT on an UP side, I got to see parts of the country I had never seen before and Tijuana.


  28. I have opted to finish my masters in my home country instead of continuing the last of my courses overseas. By doing so, I had lost countless opportunities and experiences. But my BF from home was pressuring me to come back. So, I gave in for “love” so we can be together. In hindsight, I should’ve stayed abroad. he turned out to be a two timing loser. :sad:


  29. I tweeted your contest!

  30. Loving someone enough to not go back to University so that I could stay with them and loving them enough to let them go when they needed to fly without me :(


  31. Posted on Facebook!
    [ idk how to get the proof link;/ ]


  32. I think I’m too young to have done anything crazy for love. I’ve not even done anything crazy for a crush! If we’re not talking romantic love, well… I did ride 34 hours in the backseat of a Mustang to help my sister and her fiance move to Moscow, Idaho (of all places). That was certainly crazy, but also a lot of fun!
