Returning to life after a public hanging, Llew hits the road to escape the anti-magic hatred of her home town.
Fortunately, she meets a welcoming band of travellers, escorting a young lady to her future husband.
Unfortunately, one of the travellers, Jonas, is specially trained to kill her kind, with the attitude to guarantee it.
Fortunately, the pair hit it off before he learns what she is.
Unfortunately, Jonas’s half brother has discovered how to harvest the blood of Llew’s kind to power the device that allows him to perform a wide range of magics. And he’s looking for a new source…
Healer’s Touch is a fantasy novel flavoured with a wild west setting, steampunk-like technology, enough romance to draw you in, horror to keep you hooked, and just enough sex to keep things spicy.
