He was supposed to seduce the Chosen, not fall for her.
Kiera the Chosen: Virgin Witch. Daydreamer. Unknowingly Destined for Death.
Nine winters ago, a fierce winter storm weakened the walls of Sector two, allowing demon-like creatures called ravagers to re-enter the city. Unimaginable death and devastation followed. Regent Minassus, the sector’s leader and most powerful witch at the time, took the only measure he believed would save the citizens. He built a new army. Casting a spell so strong it almost killed him, he transformed all adults males with the 236-k gene into polar bear shifters. In their animal forms, they were the only creatures able to beat back the unwelcome invaders and protect the Sector.
Every year before the first winter storm, the Regent selected one virgin witch, called the Chosen, to perform the transformation spell.
To Kiera the Chosen, it was an honor to serve.
Until she met Xander Oslo, the one person willing to do anything to stop the Regent from turning another shifter. With one statement, he showed her that she had been deceived for nine years. Performing the spell nine days from now would come at an unexpected cost.
Xander Oslo: Alpha. Protector. Revolutionary.
After the ravagers breached the Sector walls nine winters ago, everything changed. The Regent made it law for these men to serve. He used his personal guards to test every male in the Sector over the age of fifteen. Those with the gene were rounded up and drafted into the Boundary Protection Unit to begin their training. Every year, the ones who reached the age of eighteen were turned in order to bolster the ranks.
There was only one reward for possessing the 236-k gene in a society where witches were revered.
With no end in sight, Xander Oslo, Commander of Sector Two’s Boundary Protection Unit, is ready for change at any cost. The one key to freedom for his men? Convince the Chosen to stand with him against the Regent. Except he did not expect to fall for her. Can he pull off the ultimate betrayal?
Mystic Storm is a full-length, steamy, standalone, paranormal witch-meets-shifter romance, with no cliffhanger and a happy ever after ending.
