Earth Healer

Angeline has been laying low in her healer’s hut in the woods since childhood, alone since her mentor left. Sure, people from the village come to her for healing but no one admits it. She’s fine with it, prefers to be alone, studying the large magical books on healing and botany that were left behind, even if she battles loneliness by talking to herself.

When a young knight discovers her hidden home and recognizes her as the one person who can break the curse on Fenris, she is unceremoniously brought to Fenris Keep by none other than Damien, the Laird of Fenris, himself. And with each attempt at escape, their connection gets stronger, despite his distrust of magic.

Angeline is pulled into caring for the locals with each task she performs, magical or non. Despite Damien’s change of heart, she’s sticking it out until she discovers how to break the curse and, in the process, bring life to a slumbering land and open the heart of the one man who complements her.

Working together, they find love and further adventure that launches them into a new world where they must collaborate with the other countries on Omnos Island.

Earth Healer is the first book in the Omnos Island Elementals Series. It features Angeline, a strong earth elemental healer with the canny ability to reach for magic wherever she might be, Damien, an untrusting leader who discovers that his strengths include a certain elemental witch, and a happy ending that will leave you wanting more.

Dangers that challenge her own deep-seated fears.

However, he doesn’t anticipate the power of her magic—or the dislike she feels for him after all these years. Between the cold weather, the calamities that are occurring in the harbor, and the secrets his mother, the queen, is keeping from him, he pulls Maya into his circle of counselors, whether she likes it or not.
