A mischievous seer who can’t remember.
A wrathful king who can’t forget.
A cruel curse that binds them to a twisted fate.

My whole life felt wrong, until one drunken night in Vegas I rescue a koi and wind up dragged into a whole new world.

It has to be a dream, right? There’s magic, shifters, dinosaurs, seers, curses, and the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen. The powerful tattooed king of the water serpent shifters. He claims that he’s my husband, my one true love, my fated mate.
Just one problem.
He’s been cursed to kill me.

I’m the reincarnated queen of this mystical land. A land dying from a vicious curse placed upon us by the same monstrous creature that cursed him to kill me in cold blood.

We have less than twenty-nine days to end both curses. But my memories aren’t returning swiftly. I’m not who I used to be. Our magic is increasingly unstable, and there are enemies I can’t even see. I don’t know if I can be who I need to be.

And how do you kill an ancient entity who always escapes death and who hates you for what you did in your previous life?

We’re running out of time, and I’m fighting to get to him. Even if he may literally be the death of me. Because I don’t know how life is worth living if I can’t live it with him.
I’d always thought that belonging and being with the one I love would be worth everything…but am I willing to die for it again?

This is a standalone fantasy romance with an HEA, part of the Forgotten Kingdoms, a series of standalone fantasy romances that can be read in ANY order.

dino friends
never giving up
curses galore
reclaiming memories
soul mates
fated mates
power of love
touch her & die
