Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Druid Series 9: Baird [The Druid Series 09] by Marata Eros!

“Baird.” He tosses his chin toward Carrig and the introductions stall.
   Carrig is more amiable than Baird. “What blood are you?”
   Titus moves swiftly beside them though he carries Siana’s dead weight. “I am blood of the demonic, and also Exotic.”
   “Obviously vampire,” Carrig replies.
   “Aye, I am, though I have enough Exotic blood to shadow skip.”
   Baird frowns.
   “Baird,” Carrig says, but Baird sprints ahead.
   He smells the wetness from the hot spring, musty yet sweet. Baird zeroes in on it as he runs, and Titus follows.
   They arrive at the water's edge, and all of them slip off their clothes.
   Carrig nudges the edge of his rucksack open and plucks out soap.
   Siana moans, flopping an elegant arm over her eyes.
   She gasps as hot water slides over her body. Every scratch, wound, and piece of filth responds with a biting sting.
   “What?” Siana asks, her voice thick.
   “We are bathing then seeking shelter nearby,” Carrig explains.
   Baird takes Siana from Titus, and he resists.
   Their eyes lock.
   “I will not harm the Druid queen, Faction,” Baird says.
   Siana holds an arm around Titus's waist as she half floats in the warm water. “He does not believe you.” She looks up at Titus through half-closed lids.
   Carrig snorts, and Baird frowns.
   Her naked shoulders lift. “What assurance does he have, based on your rabid behavior?”
   Baird casts his eyes to the ground, properly shamed.
   When he lifts them, he is more himself. “I wish to have some time to speak alone with you.”
   “Ah,” Siana says, “you need but ask. We're obviously on intimate terms.”
   She says her words with mirth. They are barbs sinking into his flesh, and he deserves it.
   Siana lets herself be pulled through the water by Baird.
   Something tight and hard eases within Baird's chest when she is beside him.
   He kisses the top of her head, wrapping her tightly against himself.
   They float away while the other men clean. Only the sounds of splashing can be heard.
Siana has disappeared. As an Exotic and Druid warrior queen, she is not beholden to the magick call of sex slavery as the Druid witches of her upbringing. She does not realize as she runs, Baird and Kael follow with opposing agendas.

Now that Jessamine is within the subjugation of the undead, the Druid females will be ruled by the fair hand of Imogen and her Reaper Kings, Carrig and Quinn. When a gathering of remaining Druid priests come against the new kingdom, the Reapers find their numbers too few to protect the stronghold.

Altho and the gifted Druid female Seraphina cannot reconcile the inception of their relationship, and her promise to be his. Altho seeks guidance from the Reaper leader, Maghnus... only to discover they vie for more than power alone.

Can Siana obtain the freedom she wishes and the love she denies? Will the new kingdom of Reapers succeed in the protection of their Druid females? Do Altho and Maghnus hold the key to revolutionizing the power structure of both Druid and Reaper?
