As if having a powerful druid and a goddess for parents doesn’t suck enough, throwing a vengeful god into the fray certainly doesn’t do Aiden any favors.
Aiden Mercer’s summer has been interesting—if by interesting you mean life-threatening and heartbreaking that is. With fall fast approaching, he’s looking for a quiet time in the arms of his boyfriend, Naël, the handsome merman.
Alas, life never quite goes the way you plan it, does it? Unless Aiden finds a way to stop the wicked god Baburaj and his mother, Jhanvi from achieving their devilish goals, pain and destruction will hover over him like a starving vulture.
In the third and final book in the Of Magic & Scales series, the familiar cast of zany but lovable characters is back, and they are bringing reinforcements for what promises to be an epic and sexy ending. Join Aiden, Naël, and their circle of magical friends in their final adventure.

After our cohort of magicals left, Fouchard dug me out of the hole I had been lying in and, being a bit overzealous, carried me to our room. I didn’t fight him even though I was recovered enough to walk on my own. Instead, I cuddled against his chest, my hands clasped behind his neck, and head nestled in the crook of his neck. He smelled heavenly, the fresh scent of the ocean still lingering on his skin even though he had been away from it for a few days already. I took a deep sniff and sighed.
“Are you smelling me?” he said, amusement obvious in his voice. “That’s not creepy at all.”
I sniffed him again. “I’m half druid, sweetheart. Nature completes me, and you always smell of the ocean and the sun.”
He snorted. “Are you telling me I complete you?” He hitched me up a bit more, rearranging his hands under my legs.
“At the risk of sounding like Sid the sloth, you do complete me, my love.” I planted my lips where my head had been and kissed him. “In so many ways.”
