Time travel leads to lust—and love—in this fourth installment of Lily X’s breathtaking New World series.
Aster: When a client hands me a batch of gorgeous Old Earth antiques, my eyes linger on an odd, gilded mirror topped with a mysterious yellow stone. In all my years as a collector, I’ve never seen anything like it. And probably never will again.
One silly misstep sends the stone sliding across my workroom. But it doesn’t break. Instead, smoke fills my lungs and a beautiful woman appears out of thin air, her kohl-lined eyes staring daggers at me.
Naia: What would you do if you woke up in a stranger’s house with no idea how you got there?
Yell at them and leave? Yeah, I would too.
Leaving isn’t so easy when I’ve awakened in the arms of a woman with captivating violet eyes and taut forearms that beg for my touch.
Nothing feels real in this New World, except for Aster. I can feel myself come alive around her alluring androgyny and selflessness, but what would it take for her quiet demeanor to turn wild?
And would that be enough to fight the pull of the past where I truly belong?
