Banished from the South Pole, Kara tries to carve out a new life among the elves of the North. It’s not easy with a secret to protect—a secret she’s cursed with by the unusual circumstances of her heritage: half-elf, half-fairy. In the North, she’s assigned to work with Seb on a special project. He’s the most gorgeous elf she’s ever seen—and the orneriest.

As if being banished wasn’t punishment enough.

Seb introduces her to Trystin, a fairy from the nearby fairy forest. Trystin discerns her secret right away and promises to teach her how to use the powers given to her by the very thing she’s fighting to keep hidden.

Snippet

He held
the helmet out once again and this time Kara took it. She climbed on behind
Seb, holding to the side handles. He grunted, in frustration or humor she
couldn’t tell. He reached behind him, grabbed her hands and wrapped them around
his waist. Kara gasped.
“No
backrest,” he said, which was true enough. “You’ll fall off if you don’t hold
on.”
Seb hit
the throttle, launching them forward. Kara couldn’t stop the small scream that
escaped her throat as she tightly clasped Seb, burying her face in his back in
terror. She slid forward, pressing tightly against him, refusing to look up as
the world sped by. Panic slid across her bones until she felt as frozen as the
Earth’s surface beneath them. He sped around corners and across bumps that
lifted the machine airborne. Her breathing was rapid and her heart felt as if
it would pound its way through her chest. It seemed as if hours passed rather
than a mere thirty minutes when he finally pulled to a stop.
Kara
tried to release him, truly she did, but telling her brain to release her death
grip on him and actually doing it seemed to be at opposite ends of the
spectrum.
“Kara?”
he asked. She couldn’t lift her head to answer him.  She felt his hands on hers, peeling them
away. He managed to do so, though she still couldn’t move.

Pulling
her helmet off, he leaned down to peer into her face. Seb surprised her by
pulling her into his arms, holding her tight, safe, enfolded in his warm
embrace as she shook, spasms wracking her body. Kara didn’t know how much time
passed before her brain began to really process the situation. As she became
aware of her reaction to nothing more than a ride on a sled, and the fact that
she was now clasped tightly in Seb’s arms, embarrassment seeped through her.
