Family. Sacrifice. Desire. Destiny.

Lethal, jaded, and efficient, four Watcher warriors encounter four sisters who walk straight out of a myth and into their hearts. The Solsti, supposedly legendary females who each control an element, are very much alive.

Quickly immersed in kidnappings, killings, and vengeance—not to mention soul-binding sex—each couple’s path brings them to locations and emotions far beyond anything they could have imagined. With their lives on the line, each sister learns to trust her ability as well as the male who has captured her heart.

Within each Watcher a fierce need is awakened: to protect what belongs to him. To protect the sexy mates they never anticipated they’d find and now cannot live without. The sisters complete their warriors’ battle-hardened lives in ways both unforeseen and completely perfect, and together they rain hellfire to annihilate their tenacious enemies.

Solsti and Watchers. Together they are invincible.

Four novels of danger and white hot passion complete the Solsti Prophecy series. Read on for a novella and EXCLUSIVE short story involving key characters who help bring the legend into vivid reality.

*The short story, Don’t Count Your Demons, will ONLY be available in this box set! *

Review of Don't Count Your Demons
Arcanie the ruler of Tarsa is sick and she's been trying everything to get rid of the illness that's taken hold of her body. Zinaya would be the next ruler of Tarsa if her mother's illness wasn't cured soon. But the rules state that in order for the next female member of the family to become ruler, they had to be mated and Zinaya wasn't and had no plans on being mated any time soon. This wouldn't be such a problem if Zinaya's cousin, Nera could be counted on to be a good ruler but she and her mate would not make good rulers. In fact, if Nera becomes the ruler, they are afraid what would happen to Tarsa. But there is always one other choice and this one is called the mate run. If Zinaya can outrun the male warriors during the mate run then she could rule alone and if not, she would take the strongest male as her mate and rule Tarsa upon Arcanie's passing.

Zinaya was fine not taking a mate until she met D'Mari. The tall, muscled male was strong, smart and in her words, yummy. All seems to be going great until he is called out on a mission. Things go from bad to worse at that point and people die. There's something really fishy going on with Nera but they need more proof that she's behind the back stabbing before they can do something about it.

This book is well written and I felt engaged as a reader the entire time. I found myself completely caught up in this story and wondering what might happen next. There were several things going on at once and I was convinced that the outcome would be bad for one or more of the characters. It kept me guessing and I like that.

I've read all the books in this series and even though this was a short story, it's packed and I do mean packed with action, sex, drama and such a great love story.

About the Author:
Sharon Kay was bitten early by the writing bug. At age twelve she wrote a short story, about a magic ring, that won a statewide contest. With her nose always in a book, she read the most novels for her age group in her local library’s summer reading program.

In her teens, writing took a back seat to fashion, as she was determined to find clothes different from what everyone else bought at the mall. And what she couldn’t find, she created. She learned to sew, worked in a fabric store after school, and spent her spare time with a needle in hand. Her black and orange prom dress is still one of her favorite creations.

She majored in apparel design in college, spending her summers working in costume shops and bridal boutiques. She worked for ten years in the Chicago garment industry, then switched her focus to apparel production logistics before becoming a stay at home mom.

Sharon lives in the Chicago area with her husband and son, and didn’t expect to write again. But Wicked Wind and the Solsti series formed in her head one weekend and refused to stay quiet until she put pen to paper. Her characters tend to keep her up at night, as they banter, fall in love, and slay endless varieties of power-hungry demons.
