Outside the protected gates of Eden, ancient enemies lurk in waiting to drain elementals of all their power.
For eons, the four elementals have bled their nourishing blood to sustain life for superior spirit elementals known as Daemons. No race has suffered in despair as critically as the fire elementals—the Pyr. Their numbers dwindled down so miserably, that Raynor is the last known warrior of the race, living on a faint hope that there is more of his kind between both worlds. He ventures out constantly searching for elementals to save from enslavement. In reality, he searches for a female to bond with. After a yearlong trip away from Eden—an elemental settlement hidden deep in the woods—he is immediately confronted by the enchanting Sylph, Samira. She ignites desires and emotions in him that he considered long dead and nearly destroyed like his people. Indulging in his erotic cravings with Samira can be a daring game to play, because elementals have never intermingled in all recorded history.

Samira took a bite of an apple and grinned at her fellow teaching instructor. Conway strolled up to her cottage with ten boisterous younglings, who ranged from five to eight years old, dancing in circles around him.
She stepped outside and he sighed. "You’re not even dressed to teach this morning’s lesson. You sure do get lazy in autumn. If there’s a chill wind in the air, it’s almost like it immobilises your limbs," Conway shouted, followed by a snorting laugh, which caused the fledglings to giggle with him. Samira cherished him as her best friend.
Samira smiled. "And you seem to become grumpier as summer goes away."
The children laughed and Conway flashed his marvellous smile. "Come on, Sam, we’re on a strict time regime. Do you know how long it took me to gather the kids from their homes this morning? Tierra couldn’t decide on which shoes to wear." He ruffled the hair of the small brunette Gaian.
"Ah, the shoe dilemma again. Well, they’re very pretty," Samira said, looking at the mismatched shoes on the girl’s tiny feet. Tierra beamed.
"I told her that to the first pair and she didn’t believe me."
"Tierra, don’t listen to him, you all know he likes to tease. He’s been teasing me the moment I came to Eden, he’s lucky I love him enough to put up with it."
"My mommy says you came from outside the gate," Aura said, stepping forward. The little Sylph reminded Samira of herself at that age.
Samira bent forward. "That’s right, Aura, but this is home now."
Eden had been home for ten years now, hidden in thick woods of the Great Appalachian Valley and warded against evil spirit elementals or any wandering human. It was the only place the four elemental races felt safe and at peace. When she’d first arrived in Eden, Conway had taken her under his brotherly wing, even though she was younger and not a water elemental. He’d seen her through some pretty tough times, he’d held her hand through the cold-sweated nightmares and the tears. Never once had he pushed her to speak of the horrors in her past. Unlike the females of her race, Conway had never once shunned her for the noticeable differences in her appearance. He also didn’t look down on her because she didn’t utilise her power as often as other Sylphs.
