Royal alchemist Kaethe knows two things. One: Drinking tea made from steeped riverhearts will cure almost anything. Two: Never, ever trust an orc.
When a rumor that she believes pertains to her missing brother has her leaving the safety and warmth of King Arkain and Queen Elvie’s court, she finds herself in the heart of the orc’s territory. Brokenbone Mountain is rumored to be filled with unspeakable danger. If you can survive the harsh elements, those foul creatures that call the mountain home will enjoy feasting on your bones. Delightful.
Bazur, General of the Black Claw Clan, has no time for humans. The years have turned him as cold as the mountain he calls home. The last thing he needs to turn up in one of his traps is a brightly-colored-haired human that danger seems to be following like a shadow. Bazur should turn her away and let the beasts have an easy dinner. But there is something about her that stops him, that propels him to take her in and keep her safe—even if she seems terrified of him.
When one of his soldiers falls ill, Kaethe is the only one able to save him. In return, Bazur promises her safe passage through the mountain and volunteers to watch over her while she acts as a healer to his village.
As the nights on Brokenbone Mountain grow longer and colder, Kaethe and Bazur learn that the other is not what they appear. Will their distrust for each other give way to the passion brewing between them? Or are some old wounds too deep to heal?

Hollie Jackson

Harnessing a childhood steeped in storytelling and a deep love of the written word, with over 600 titles (and growing) under my belt, I always strive to bring a wide range of characters to vibrant, compelling life, allowing for total immersion in the story. I want you to feel the real world melt away as you engage with my work, whatever the genre, whether it's on the lighter side (cozy mysteries, LitRPG, comedic paranormal romance) or the darker desires (reverse harem, steamy dystopia, sci-fi thrillers) and everything in between. Currently on the rosters of multiple major publishers like Podium, Tantor and ACX, I’ve worked with authors around the world. I’m proficient in a variety of accents, am a member of SAG/AFTRA, have won multiple independent awards, including the IAA for Horror 2019, and am constantly working to expand my repertoire across the spectrum of incredible works available. I’ve studied with some of the best in the industry, including Paul Meier and Pat Fraley, and am always studying new techniques to enhance my performance. I’m proficient in a wide range of accents and dialects, including UK, French, German, Russian, Irish, Scottish, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, and Eastern/Southern US. Working from my home studio, using top-of-the-line equipment, I always provide crisp, clear audio with editing and proofing to ensure a distraction free listening experience.
