Emerald Fire is our first novel with Torquere Press. We wanted to play with traditional romance tropes and create a world of our own a’la Anne McCaffrey’s Pern series. She kept a lot of realism in her books, despite having dragons and other fantastical elements; each one was explained in the context of the books and made it feel very real.
On the desert world of Persis, Keeper Teeka hopes to fulfill his dreams. Instead they come crashing around him when his Contract and lover is killed.
When Hunter Quills steps forward to aid him, Teeka wonders what motivates the solitary, scarred man.
Is them teaming together to Harvest the valuable Lode for practicality sake? Or is Quill feeling the growing attraction between them like Teeka is?
With the harsh desert of the Great Valley seeming to sabotage them at every turn, what happens when Teeka discovers sinister foul play is surfacing?
Will Quill prove to be Teeka’s protector and the answer to his hopes or his worst nightmare under the blazing twin suns of Persis?
