Salma knows only her own name. She doesn’t even remember why she’s ill. Then a fae lord who claims he knows her snatches her back to his manor, and she learns that some things more sinister than death. Like the Court of Dusk where everyone seems to know more about her than she does and nightfall is a deadly affair.
Adom’s book of truth tells him that the woman he doesn’t recognize is a vital member of his household. But the Manor keeps its secrets well, even from its own master. And even the Shadows seem to want the beautiful, mortal nuisance he has pledged to protect.
As the threat of an invasion from night itself continues to mount, Adom knows there will be consequences if he can’t protect her. And Salma wonders if she can trust him to protect her from himself. Because sometimes Adom isn't the begrudging, aloof fae he appears to be. Sometimes he's someone— or perhaps something— else.
The beginning of a haunting, slow-burn, closed-door fae romance with elements of Beauty & the Beast, Hades & Persephone, and Egyptian mythology. Perfect for fans of Sylvia Mercedes, Tara Grayce, and Emma Ham.
She’s a mortal with no memories.
As her fae liege, he knows only that he must protect her.
But is he her hero . . . or her captor?

She is his greatest weakness.
He is her grimmest threat.
They need to break their fate-bond— or die.
She has been summoned to bargain with Death.
He must remain by her side or perish.
The King of the Duat is rising for them both.
She's more than just a scullery maid.
He's nothing but a steward.
Surely not enough to distract an ascending queen.
He wasn’t meant to be the groom.
She doesn’t want a husband.
A marriage alliance forged on a lie.
The Cursed Fae of Orphydice manor will be four novels, three novellas, and one short story long as Salma and those she meets move throughout the courts of the fae, the mortals, and the underworld . . .

Zahra always knew what her destiny was, and even without the gift of sight, she knows the path she must tread to achieve it. What she didn't anticipate, though, was just how deeply she would feel the sacrifices she must make.
After all, a human sacrifice must be made if she is to take vengeance upon the current King of the Duat and ascend to the throne. And if that sacrifice is a trusting mortal maid named Salma, so be it.
And Zahra will do what needs to be done. Carefully, though, to avoid the ever-watchful eye of the young steward who has foolishly become enamored of her and thinks he sees something that is not there; that is lost forever. And Zahra would know, because sometimes, she can see as she used to. But only when the blood of another is on her tongue . . .
Sef, Consort to the Lady of the Dawn
