Cursed by the Fountain of Youth
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
For centuries, countless adventurers have searched for the Fountain of Youth. Those who found it thought they would gain eternal life. Instead, they find themselves murdered by its guardians. There was, however, one, lone survivor—Fae Miller. As an infant, she not only survived the Fountain, she took its power.
Twenty-two years later, Fae is hiding in plain sight at a local college. She’s is determined to leave the past behind her and live a normal life. But for one dying man, the search for the Fountain of Youth continues, and he is leaving a trail of blood and mutilated bodies in his wake. Unfortunately, that trail leads directly to Fae. Her only hope is a young, new college professor, also known as Special Agent Nick Chase of the FBI. Nick is determined to do two things: keep Fae alive, and keep his relationship with his student professional. Both of these jobs prove difficult—especially when love and magic get involved.
A paranormal FBI serial killer thriller
The story mostly takes place in the here-and-now more mundane world, slowly working its way into a strongly fantasy world (werecougars, and succubi, and elves! Oh my!) near the end. While there is an interesting plot, I would liken the storyline to those in the Harlequin Intrigue category. It's a great story if you love a strong romance element but if you prefer a plot where the main characters are there mainly for the mystery, this book may not be the one for you. Once the leading lady and gent meet it gets a bit on the gooey side (but stays clean). The serial killer plot isn't Sandra Brown (a little light-weight) but it continues to be interesting all the way to the end and this one you can read just before you go to bed.
