OF FLAME AND PROMISE SYNOPSIS -
Perfect for fans of Keri Arthur and Bella Forrest, this short novel kicks off a sizzling new series in the award-winning Weird Girls saga as Celia’s sister Taran fights to have it all: independence, hot romance, and enough firepower to torch an army of blood-thirsty supernaturals.
Cursed by a spell meant to destroy them, Taran Wird and her sisters instead developed unique magical talents. With the power of fire and lightning literally at her fingertips, Taran doesn’t fear much. Demons, vamps, whatever—bring ’em on! Only one thing terrifies her: commitment.
Taran is crazy about her boyfriend, Gemini, a sexy were with the incredible ability to split into two separate wolves. But after watching her sister go through heartbreak with the pack’s Alpha, Taran knows not to count on happily ever after—despite Gemini’s desire to claim her as his mate. Reluctantly, she agrees to meet his very traditional and conservative parents. Taran’s a badass with a mouth to match, and Gemini loves her for it. She’s just not positive these attributes will please Mom and Dad.
Unsurprisingly, every attempt by Taran to bond with Gemini’s folks proves disastrous. But in the end, Taran finds that winning them over means unleashing her powers . . . and proving that this foul-mouthed fire-starter is a force to be reckoned with.

Of Flame and Promise
By: Cecy Robson
Release Date: January 12th 2016
Excerpt From Of Flame and Promise
I’d woken only about an hour ago, Gemini’s warm, naked body curled against mine firing a need that required some serious quenching. So I buried my face in his lap to stir him from sleep.
Most women would have just said good morning, or nudged their partners ever so lovingly.
But I wasn’t most women.
Yeah, and you’re welcome, baby.
Gemini slowed his deep thrusts, grunting hard as he finished, his face scrunched in what appeared to be pain. But that wasn’t pain, was it? Nope, not at all. He was simply reacting to how good it felt to join his body with mine. I nibbled my way along his neck, leaving marks that faded from one bite to the next until I reached his earlobe and tugged. “Mornin’, sexy,” I whispered.
He growled something I didn’t quite understand. I didn’t speak a word of wolf, yet that deep snarl was as good as the dirty talk we’d exchanged during sex.
I laughed. Okay, maybe it wasn’t as good as those naughty words. Yet a growl from a werewolf in his human form was a rare kind of hot few women would know.
I continued to straddle Gemini as he effortlessly carried us from the center of the room, where we’d made love standing up, and back to our bed. The gentle way in which he kissed me was in direct contrast to our wicked sex, and to the male most saw.
My lover was the second in command of the Tahoe region’s Squaw Valley Den Pack—intelligent, fierce, capable of crushing skulls, quietly confident, and with fighting skills few weres possessed.
Not to mention he was hotter than the power I generated with my magic.
All large anatomical parts and good looks aside, Gemini was . . . kind. When you trash-talked, and entered a room like you owned it like I did, it attracted a certain caliber of men. The kind that made me grateful I could protect myself with fire and lightning.
Men could be cruel, and dangerous. I knew that better than most. But unlike those men I’ve known in my past, I trusted Gemini.
I absolutely love this series! It's heart-wrenching, and at times hard to read because of what these poor characters are going through, but I still love it! The main books are in Celia's perspective, and I do recommend reading the books from the beginning because the story is all connected, but this book says it's the 6th book in the series, but the events in this book take place before a few of the previous books; I'm thinking around the events of the 3rd book. This book is in the perspective of one of Celia's sister, Taran. Taran is very feisty, puts her foot in her mouth often, and has colorful language, and at times I cringed at her attitude, but other times I was like right on, girl! I love how honest she is, and that she doesn't let people treat her badly. Taran's boyfriend, Gemini, knows she is his mate and he wants her to commit to him, and since his parents are going to be in town, he would like her to meet his parents, but Taran has trouble fully committing to a relationship because she is afraid of being hurt, so she puts up walls. Taran decides she'll meet Gemini half way, and meet his parents, but pretty much everything goes wrong when she does. There is also a side story of demons being on the loose causing mayhem. Taren and company are put in a dire situation, and they really need to fight to survive. I loved the action scenes, and Taren has a badass power with her fire ability. I love Taran and Gemini together! Their chemistry is great, and they have some steamy moments, and Gemini is such a sweetheart. I did find some of the interactions with Gem's parents odd, but maybe I'm just not use to the Asian culture's way of being. I love that we got some of Celia and Aric in this book, and I look forward to more stories set in this world. I did want more of a decision made by Taran, but I feel like she is getting there. This is an Excellent series, and I highly recommend it!
