A Hidden Fire

The tantalizing paranormal romance that launched a fictional universe. Over a million books sold. 

A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mysterious manuscript he's hunted for over five hundred years. He never expected a young student librarian could be the key to unlock its secrets, nor could he have predicted the danger she would attract.

History and the paranormal collide in A HIDDEN FIRE, the first book in the bestselling Elemental Mysteries series and semifinalist in the Kindle Book Review's Best Indie Books of 2012.
