All That Glitters
Lord Alchemist - Alchemy’s Heirs I
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
To ensure his sons' immunity to hostile potions, the Lord Alchemist defied tradition to marry the only immune woman for generations: a half-barbarian.
Jani's been hired to blackmail the Lord Alchemist into disinheriting his "mongrel" heir, Iontho. When she mistakes Iontho for a servant, Iontho takes the opportunity to pose as her alchemically-loyal minion and seek information about her mysterious employer.
While the travel is worse than he'd expected, the company's better than either had hoped, and young hormones are fully engaged - but can youth and unexpected skills defeat age and treachery?
(All That Glitters is an approximately 92,000-word novel, and has mature scenes.)
