HERO: Adrian Trent
HEROINE: Li-Mei Chen
A bet between Eros, the God of love & desire, and Chloe (Chlotho), the Fate of birth, leads to a year filled with match-making and passion.
He’s a tattoo artist who can’t resist a shiny gem…
Adrian Trent spends his days and nights working as a tattoo artist at Cherry Ink. It’s a good life. He meets interesting people and expresses himself with his unique brand of art. But on the odd occasion, he gets the opportunity to do the one thing he truly loves: acquiring shiny, dragon-worthy gems. Sometimes it’s just for him, most of the time, it’s for a client willing to pay him, very well, for his time and skills.
She’s a college librarian who loves a good book…
Li-Mei Chen loves books. The rarer the better. She gets her fix every day working at a local college library in the special collection section: her concentration, Asian texts. But not all of the books she chases down are for the University; some of them end up in her personal collection. Her Chinese Dragon won’t have it any other way.
Two worlds set on a collision course…
When a new client approaches Adrian and Li-Mei receives a mysterious email, they’re both put on the trail of what their dragons treasure most. Or, so it seems. What appears to be a chance encounter, has to ability to turn into something more. Will they take a step toward happily ever after, or will things spiral out their of control?
NOTE: Mystic Zodiac is a 12 book series. It is NOT a serial. Each book ends in a happily ever after for the main couple. However, the prologue and epilogue of each story follows the Gods that kick off the series, Eros and Chlotho (aka Chloe). At the end of the series the bet between the two will come to a conclusion.
August’s Mystic story is adorable. Adrian is smoking hot and Li-Mei is brilliant! I think this one is my favorite because Adrian takes his time getting to know Li-Mei and courts her which mostly serves to ramp up the tension between them. I think Chloe was a little behind when she came to see Adrian but that part made me snicker. A wonderful addition to the Zodiac Mystic series.
