Dragon Wytch (The Sisters of the Moon, Book 4)

by Yasmine Galenorn

"A delightful new series that simmers with fun and magic." -Mary Jo Putney Three sisters ridding the Otherworld of evil--one monster at a time. We're the D'Artigo sisters: savvy and sexy operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But being half-human, half-Faerie short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shape-shifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who's still trying to get the hang of being undead. And me! I'm Camille, a wicked-good witch, trying to juggle faulty magic, gorgeous men, and the demonic war in which we're embroiled. Sometimes, it's hard to know who we can trust... The equinox is coming, and mayhem rules. A crown-prince unicorn offers us a legendary gift, but it vanishes. Goblins and trolls swarm the streets of Seattle. And now Smoky, the sexiest dragon alive, decides to stake his claim on me. Overshadowing it all, the third spirit seal surfaces and Shadow Wing's after it. But I've discovered a secret that could change everything. A dangerous force from the past is rising again, intent on restoring balance to the worlds, whether we like it or not... (Strong language, and some descriptions of sex.)
