Earth Borne by Rachael Slate


As a nymph, she's fashioned for seduction
Melita is married to the centaur, Lord Thereus. Or at least she pretends to be. The ruse has been easy, until the presumed deceased Thereus returns. To save his lands, she committed treason. But that isn't the worst of her secrets. To protect her heart from the lethally charming Thereus, she'll have to risk claiming his.

No one has ever tamed him
Thereus was once as wild as the stallion half of his body. And just as stubborn. He never wished for a wife, but the woman he returns to has changed. She's become...irresistible. Despite his attraction, Thereus doesn't intend to stay. After he collects his army, he'll be off to war. Yet as his passion for her burns as deep as her secrets, he'll have to fight for the one thing he faked his death to escape...and now just might not be able to live without.

The path of truth is wound with hidden desires

Melita's shadowed past holds a secret that could shatter the centuries-old peace between centaurs and Lapiths. But trusting her heart to Thereus isn't a risk Melita is willing to take twice, even though he swears he's now more wicked than wild. As her enemies close in on the truth, Melita and Thereus will have to choose between protecting her race...and saving his.

Rachael has explored forgotten temples in Cambodia, kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland, and stood inside the Roman Coliseum. She loves studying people and cultures, current and ancient. Her appetite for romance began with Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables, which she later nurtured with a healthy dose of Jane Austen.

As an author of scorching hot fantasy romance, Rachael blends the lines between mythology, reality, and fantasy. In her worlds, you’ll encounter strong, sexy alpha males and the capable women who challenge them. If her heroines can’t meet their heroes toe-to-toe, then they’ll bring them to their knees.

No matter what torture she puts her characters through, true love will always prevail. Love is, after all, the most powerful force on Earth, and beyond.

Rachael holds an Honours BA in anthropology, as well as a CELTA. Her secret indulgence is her passion for baking, which she offsets with her addiction to running (she’s completed four marathons). She resides on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada, with her husband, two children, cat, and dog.
