Summary: Corentin is a scholar with a secret—his magical Talent allows him to turn into a dragon, and he isn’t alone in that ability. Long ago, dragons were hunted fiercely, until they went into hiding, becoming things of legend. Corentin has traveled the world with one aim—to protect his people and keep their secret safe. Drawn to the principality of Tournai by news of someone close to discovering that secret, he hopes to avert suspicion. His attraction to the too-serious Bastien isn’t convenient for his purpose, but it isn’t something he can ignore either. Lord Bastien, Earl of Ardesia, inherited his title unexpectedly when his parents were killed in a sailing accident along with the parents of his cousin, Prince Philip. Since then, Bastien has devoted his life to the obligations of his family and estate—so much so, that it has caused tension between him and his siblings. His world is further shaken when he receives an anonymous letter informing him that the tragic boating accident may, in fact, have been murder. Bastien throws himself into investigating whether the allegations are true and finding out who killed his parents. As Corentin and Bastien become closer, the mystery of Bastien’s parents’ death draws him further into danger. Corentin feels compelled to protect Bastien, but the threat is closer than they know. Now, Corentin must decide whether preserving his secret—and potentially his people’s safety—is more important than saving the man he loves.

Summary:

Ehane Freeman is a Native American witch who is obsessed with his family’s turbulent past. He is a descendant of Sassascus, the sachem of the Pequot tribe. In the Freeman family, it is the firstborn male who becomes the guardian of the coveted Teetonki zeal chest, their most secrete heirloom, which holds generations of magical tomes. Ehane doesn’t feel his older brother is capable of protecting the chest.
Ehane stole the chest and sought help from his friends. Together they conjured a spell to bring them to his great ancestor, Sassascus. The problem was that Sassascus lived in 17th century Connecticut. Ehane brought them to a point in time just before the Mystic Massacre. One of the darkest times in Connecticut’s history, certainly not a place for three 21st century men.
Dohate traveled back with his friends to pursue Ehane. While in the past, the friends wrestle with the ethical ramifications of screwing with time. They turned on each other and went their own way. Two longtime enemies found they have to work together to thwart the powerful witch who lived in Fort Saybrook. The men discover they work together well, and that had things in common. They found themselves falling in love with each other.
Their actions in the past derailed history to the point of preventing the Pequot war from happening. The men have to find a way to come together again. It will take nothing less than them all working together to restore the original course of history.
