A skilled warrior with a life-changing task…

Every warrior needs a talisman – but for Riley Sheridan, he cares more about partying with his buddies than finding the mate he’s supposed to bond with for life. That is, until a stunning raven-haired woman steps up to the keg and asks for a beer.

A fiery beauty with untapped powers…

Lynnette Montgomery came to the festival to relax, celebrate, and take her mind off her still-undiscovered magical powers. But after fate draws her to a suave and cocky warrior, she’s shocked to realize that she’s his fated talisman. But finding your mate is never supposed to be this easy.

And the wrath of a goddess bent on their demise.

Drawn by a ripple in the cosmos, the infamous goddess Morrigan sets her sights on the pair. She’s dead-set on stopping the next Sheridan from bonding to his talisman – and when they retreat to a remote cabin to complete the ritual, she sees her chance to strike. After the goddess kidnaps Riley, Lynette is thrust into a deadly battle with a seemingly impossible goal: to save him from a fate worse than death.

Bursting with all the pulse-pounding action and rich worldbuilding of a riveting fantasy adventure, this gripping prequel is a must-read for fans of Tam DeRudder Jackson’s Talisman Series, or as a starting point for your adventure into a world of modern-day Celtic warriors.

Seated on a log facing the bonfire, Lynnette entertained herself with watching Delaney torture the local civilian boys with her frisbee-tossing prowess. Having washed out of the game early, pretty much on purpose, she sipped at the dregs of her cup of nasty, watery keg beer and laughed as her friend landed yet another perfect shot over one of the guys’ discs. A warm, citrusy smell washed over her, her only warning before Mr. Hottie—Riley—sat down next to her.

“Hello, again.”


“Thought you wanted to play.” He nodded in the direction of the game where Delaney was currently creaming the civilian guys, most of whom she and her friend knew from town.

“I played—and lost rather spectacularly.” At the look on his face, her smile faltered. “Something wrong?”

In a blink, he recovered himself and turned the tables on her with the devastating smile he returned. “Not one damn thing.” He shifted closer to her, his heat warming her far more effectively than the bonfire. “Tell me about your beautiful self.”

She smirked. “Is that your best pickup line?”

With a shrug, he peeked at her from beneath his brows. “I don’t know. Is it working?”

Laughter rang out of her. “What do you want to know?”

“What’s your favorite color?”

This close, she could see his eyes were a steel blue.


“Yeah? My favorite is green.” He leaned a little closer to her, staring into her eyes. “Yep. Mossy green.”

“You don’t know your favorite color?” The corner of her mouth ticked up. “Are you always this big a flirt?”

He shifted closer, his jeans-clad thigh sending tingles along the exposed skin below her skirt. For a beat, his eyes dropped to her mouth. The low rumble of his voice vibrated through her. “Is it working?”

Willing herself not to close the distance between their lips, she clamped her knees together and directed her gaze to her hands wrapped around her now-empty cup. “I haven’t decided.” Sliding him a side-eye, she added, “Maybe,” stretching the word almost to its breaking point.

A laugh huffed out of him. “Now who’s flirting?”
