The Sleeping Lotus Series
Raena Barren is an illusion mage with a secret: of all the magic users in the world of Sense, she is the only one who can hide her power. She never realized the value of this ability until she fell in love… with the leader of a spy ring, Jorr Portent. To be with Jorr, Raena will need to become one of his female operatives… and while her magic might give her an edge, being a Thorn isn’t easy. After all, how can she use her body without betraying her ideals–all while keeping Jorr’s jealousy from killing them both?
But that’s only Book One of Raena’s sexual awakening. In the pursuit of true love, Raena will have to overcome loss, betrayal, and her own crippling regret–all while taking down a sex-trafficking organization that could change the rules of the world as she knows it.
Sleeping Lotus #1: The Rose Contract
LOVE IS FREE. INNOCENCE HAS A PRICE.
Raena Barren was born with a secret: of all the magic users in the kingdom of Soma, she is the only one who can hide her power. As a child, she used this magic to help her survive on the streets–until she saved the life of a strange boy called Jorr Portent. He rewarded her with a job in the castle of Soma–and Raena spent the next ten years falling in love with him.
But while Raena’s life as a servant is sheltered, Jorr’s world is one of spies and assassins. When Raena comes of age, their paths will diverge forever… unless Raena can earn a place by his side. To become one of Jorr’s operatives, however, Raena must get to know her own body, and outsmart the deadly people around her. She must also sell her innocence to whatever man pays the most… even if that man can’t be Jorr.
