FEATURED AUTHOR—SHERI FREDRICKS BIOGRAPHY Always on the hunt for the uncommon things in life, author Sheri Fredricks thrives on creating adventures in her mythological kingdom for her readers. A former engineering secretary, Sheri lives on the beautiful central coast of California. "I wanted to move away from inflexible right angles and create an unboxed world with no boundaries." A voracious reader since her early years, Sheri found her brain crowded with stories and characters of her own. "Ultimately," she says, "my husband encouraged me to write them all down." Sheri loves to spend time at home. A computer hutch keeps her focused on creating stories, but the panoramic view of life on a ranch will call her outside to play in the sun.

REMEDY MAKER Man by day, Centaur by night, Rhycious is a remedy maker who needs his own healing. He's the royal physician, famous for his cures. War and PTSD have broken his spirit, preventing him from finding true happiness. Patience is an optimistic, good-natured Wood Nymph working as a mediator to ensure harmony within the Nymph sector. Pollution in the aquifer that feeds the taproot tree of her heart is killing her. Experience has taught her to deny herself the love of a male, but the gruff Centaur is different. He doesn't push his expectations on her, only his healing nature. When Rhycious loses his grip on reality, he believes his inability to control his disorder will drive Patience away. Nevertheless, desire flares, and Patience draws him close. Kidnapping and betrayal have turned their mythic joint venture into a deadly bout. Will their love endure when survival hinges on trusting each other?

When newcomer Aurora Young arrives and purchases it before he can, his goal is to do all he can to get it back, even if that means trumping the good will of his tenacious yet lovely new neighbor. He is a man used to getting what he wants and isn’t thrilled when his heart begins to soften. Donovan must decide if it’s worth fighting his growing admiration for Aurora, or taking back what is rightfully his. Feb.
