As the daughter of the Purple Oasis coven leader, the last thing Jasmine expects is to be sent on a diplomatic mission to convince the nymphs and dryads to part with their precious tea. Nor does she expect to make a connection with the handsome nymph sent to negotiate.
Ryburn never expected to like the representative of Purple Oasis, but he's unable to deny the spark of something special he sees in Jasmine.
Can the two of them forge an alliance between their people without losing their hearts?
Nymph's Trust is book one of the Purple Oasis series. It is a standalone m/f paranormal romance set in a post-apocalyptic world that's starting to rebuild.
Fun, Quick Read!!
This short story follows Jasmine and Ryburn after an apocalyptic event has changed the world. I enjoyed the dynamic between Jasmine and Ryburn, both are new at the whole “broker a trade deal” thing because neither wants to screw up and disappoint their respective leaders.
It’s a pretty fast read, the characters are likable and it’s age appropriate for most audiences.
This is a the start to a new series. The characters are great and I felt Ryburn and Jasmine chemistry. The storyline was easy to follow and I look forward to reading more.
I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Short and Sweet
“Bless the springs from which the waters flow, bless the magic that makes the tea grow.”
• Short, sweet
• Coming-of-Age sweet romance
• Targeted at teenagers?
• A fantasy version of help others to help yourself
If you have heard of the Teapocalypse, this novelette may have been one of the entries in that anthology. It focuses on two young characters: Jasmine and Ryburn.
After some kind of environmental destruction, people/beings live in small communities almost cut off from each other, but they are just starting to initiate trade for those items they cannot produce. In Jasmine's community, the people depend upon her family's tea witchiness to oversee the streams. In Ryburn's community, they have started growing tea in plantations but need water. Naturally, such a symbiotic relationship is perfect, if only everyone agreed. Jasmine and Ryburn are both selected as ambassadors for their communities and both have to learn how to overcome the obstacles and work together.
While not something I normally read, I can recommend it for younger readers (I am middle-aged.)
