Breath of Air (The Dryad Quartet Book 1)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Capri Summers earned her last name in honor of the season she was found, abandoned in a dark alleyway in Richmond, Virginia. The orphanage remained her home until her eighteenth birthday, when she had no choice but to leave with nothing but a duffle bag and the clothes on her back. That, and her secret gift.
Her ability to call upon the wind, to form clouds out of thin air, and to coax birds into dancing on her open palm. It made her different, when all she wanted was to be normal.
Little did she know, her gift made her extraordinary.
When a chance encounter with a person from her past occurs, Capri is whisked off to a land she thought only existed in her dreams. A land filled with beautiful beings of mythological origin, who welcome her as one of their own.
Her newfound life unexpectedly turns from perfect to dangerous. Deception lurks around every corner and a ruthless killer will do anything to keep her from learning the truth about her disappearance.
Now she'll have to find courage in despair, or risk losing everything.

She watched him go, wishing he knew just how grateful she was that he had been there to protect her. If it hadn’t been for him, she might very well be dead. ♦ ♦ ♦ She stared at the daffodils on her nightstand that night, her mind numb and her body tired.

The man, by contrast to this dark gypsy woman, was light and pale, oozing elegance and class in crisp white linen slacks and matching long sleeved shirt. He was tall as well, only inches above the woman, and his corn silk hair fell generously to the middle of his back. His eyes were pale gray, like the fog that settles over a lake at sunrise. When he smiled, she could see
man accustomed to doing such things, he pulled out his pistol and aimed. “WAIT!” The woman screamed, and Capri looked up from the polished barrel of the gun to see the woman’s anguished face. “Let’s just leave her here. They’ll never find her anyways; she’ll be as good as dead to them. Just don’t make me watch you kill her, not when my own flesh and blood is her age. I can’t bear it! I just can’t bear it!” “Fine.” The man muttered through gritted teeth as he sheathed his weapon. “Let’s go.”

Cheese?” Blythe snickered, reaching for the wine bottle he handed to her. “What is wine without cheese?” He winked at Capri, passing her a wine glass. Capri held the glass as Blythe uncorked a bottle of pinot noir and poured generously for her. She eyed the wine before taking a tentative sip, the velvet tartness of it smooth on her tongue. “Here’s to breaking the rules, and having fun while we do it!” Blythe held her now full glass up in a
courtyard, no one else in sight. Up above them, the storm raged mercilessly. The clouds churned and writhed like a living being, all shades of gray swirling together. A crackling bolt of lightning broke out against the sky, spider-webbing greedily through the dense air. As if answering the call, thunder boomed around them, so loud it vibrated the ground at their feet. She could feel the wind, and hear it howling around her, and when she quickly turned her head, she saw the tornado in the
