"The author's telling of this tale is both lyrical and descriptive and while her story is filled with erotic scenes, it's bound together with very real emotion. The characterization was incredible and the story's pacing and plot flowed so well that time seemed lost in the reading of it. This story engaged me in a way that left me longing for more. Don't miss this gem of a story that solidly launches the Red Sage line of ebooks and pledges to readers that there are many more wonderful stories to come."

Once every 100 years, the island folk must sacrifice a virgin to the Master of Elements in exchange for safe seas and temperate weather. Since she was a child, Elsbeth knew the day would come when she would give her life for the sake of her people. She doesn’t know what to expect because the young women that are sacrificed are never heard from again. Yet nothing could prepare her for what she finds. The Master of the Elements is intrigued by the brave and bold Elsbeth. For centuries, he has lived alone as the protector of the island and its people. Many women have come and gone, but this time everything is different, especially in what he feels for Elsbeth.
This wonderfully descriptive story is set in an ancient gothic castle of magic and mystery. The passionate intimacy between Elsbeth and the Master is built upon and tended in every scene. It’s moving when an author can bridge a connection between the reader and her characters. Everything that happens unfolds slowly page by page until you become a part of their world. Master of the Elements is a tender and sensual love story that has a timeless quality. It reminds us that love can be the ultimate salvation between two people.

Once every one hundred years, a virgin sacrifice is made to the Master of the Elements so that he will continue to ensure that the people have prosperous fields and a mild climate. Elsbeth is the chosen sacrifice – though unlike those before her, Elsbeth embraces her duty to ensure the survival of her people. Elsbeth doesn’t know what awaits her but she is eager to find out. Will it be her death, or will she find paradise on earth? A short, highly erotic tale, MASTER OF THE ELEMENTS delivers a fantastic story in just a very few pages. Romantic and filled with sizzling hot sex, MASTER OF THE ELEMENTS is a delightful tale and one I recommend.
