Detective sergeant Micki Li is a Korean born adoptee, a US Army vet, a widow with a young daughter...and a Boston Police Department homicide detective. She lives with her very traditional Chinese mother-in-law in Boston's Chinatown. Her partner's heritage is Irish (of course...it's Boston!), and her current boyfriend (much to her mother-in-law's dismay) is Italian and lives in the North End. So her life is pretty complex, but not as complex as the murders she must solve...
TWO CRIMES AREN’T BETTER THAN ONE...
In spring, homicide detective sergeant Micki Li’s mind turns to...baseball and the youth league team she coaches. But when the South Street Red Sox’s practice is interrupted by a teen’s younger brother almost being snatched off the street, it’s all work and no games for Micki and her partner Arnie Pepper. She doesn’t like creeps, especially creeps who sneak up on innocent kids on the street. She isn’t surprised when, under pressure from local Channel 9, the powers-that-be in Boston make it the number one priority for the BPD to get child molesters off the street. Micki and Arnie are drawn into the investigation when someone starts murdering and mutilating former child molesters. What’s the connection? And how does the star reporter from Channel 9 manage to get to crime scenes before the cops do?
As the bodies start piling up and witnesses and suspects start stonewalling them, Micki and Arnie know they’re racing the clock before a child is hurt or someone else is horribly murdered.

SHE LONGS TO HEAR A DREAMSONG...
Lajila is the daughter of two shapeshifters, but what really makes her different is that she cannot hear–not anyone’s words...not even a dreamsong sung by the Tiria’s mate. She longs to be of service to the Tiria in restoring Gayome and fighting the fierce Cha’Kwain who use the Gayomians’ own dreams to destroy them. She does not suspect her chance has come when a stranger arrives...and she can hear the handsome man’s thoughts in her mind.
HE LONGS FOR ANOTHER LIKE HIMSELF...
Kallen Elfodd has no idea why Lajila can hear him. What else can she discern? Can she guess he is Teqqet, a member of an ancient race whose task is to keep balance between Gayome and the rest of the universe? He refuses to believe he is the last of his kind. But his quest to find another is interrupted because he is fascinated by Lajila and wonders what it would be like to hold her. When he does, he brings on a fiery disaster that threatens everything the Tiria has rebuilt.
BUT THEY HAVE MORE IN COMMON THAN THEY CAN GUESS
To keep the Tiria’s people from starving in the aftermath of the devastating fire, Lajila and Kallen set off on to find food to replace what was destroyed when, as he gazed into her eyes, he forgot about balance. Can two such different people work together to help the Tiria? What will happen if they surrender to the passion exploding between them? Will they bring forth Gayome’s final destruction...or win love?
