I’d like to take an opportunity to spotlight my friend Dena Garson’s fabulous new book Mystic’s Touch. (Have an ogle at that gorgeous cover art!) Dena has had a number of releases with Ellora’s Cave, from Moderne Naughty Nooners to her Paranormal novel for the sexy series Emerald Isle Fantasies. This wonderful new book combines sensual romance with paranormal elements and is as beautifully written as all her others. Blurb and excerpt are below! You can visit Dena at her website, and enter for her goodies giveaway!!
When Prince Ceros returns home to take his place on the throne, he falls prey to a mysterious malady that leaves him unable to speak or move, though his thoughts and awareness remain intact. Danet, a talented healer, realizes the prince is alert inside his body. The two are able to share thoughts telepathically. Unfortunately her connection with Ceros may bring unwanted attention to her abilities and result in her banishment from the city.
Their unique bond grows as Danet races to find a remedy for the prince’s condition. Desire turns to love, which makes Danet fear for their future when he awakens. They seek out the villain attempting to take the throne and endeavor to find a way to stay together.
Inside Scoop: Ceros’ secret shifter status adds complication and intrigue to their budding romance.

Danet turned to look at the prince. He was a handsome man. It was a shame to see him trapped in his body this way.
Don’t try to distract me, the prince said.
How was I distracting you?
You were thinking of touching my hair.
I was not.
Yes, you were.
Danet harrumphed. What was your second reason?
My second reason?
You said you had two reasons for asking about my family but only mentioned one.
Ah, yes. I was trying to figure out how your family could be so intertwined with mine, but I don’t remember meeting you before now.
We were introduced once, long ago. As I have already explained, it would have been improper for me to have served you or spent any time in your company. Besides, you have been away from home for many turns of the suns.
Why is it acceptable for you to be in my service now?
I am no longer an innocent maid. I was married for a short time. Besides, completing my apprenticeship allows me a great deal of freedom even though I am not mated. I believe your mother is more concerned with your well-being than any sense of impropriety. Besides, there is little danger of your ravishing me while in this state.
How does she know that you won’t ravish me while overseeing my care?
She shot him a look that would have spoken volumes had he been able to see it. Because your mother knows me better than that.
Yes. With one word, she made sure there was nothing to argue.
An image flashed through her mind of her straddling his very naked body, both of them sweaty and flushed. Danet tripped over her own feet. She quickly stamped the image down, not knowing if she had conjured it or if he had.
