A novella connected to Sonya Bateman's urban fantasy series that includes Master of None and Master and Apprentice.
Getaway driver Jazz wasn't exactly thrilled when the thief Gavyn Donatti, her ex-partner -- and the unwitting father of her son -- waltzed back into her life, and then dragged her into the middle of a magical war between a bunch of ancient genies, who'd been hiding among humans for centuries. And as if that wasn't enough, it turned out these djinn didn't choose Donatti for his charm... he's related to them, and has a little magic of his own.
Now that they've vanquished their enemies and Jazz has more or less accepted Donatti into her life, he's talked her into taking a weekend trip for her birthday. A "romantic" getaway in a rustic cabin. Unfortunately, Donatti's map-reading skills aren't up to par, and neither is his car -- because first they get lost, and then they wreck on some unnamed mountain road.
When Jazz comes to, Donatti is MIA and she's been abducted by a smooth-talking stranger who is more than he appears. There's something magical, and dangerous, going on -- and for once, it's not Donatti's fault.
Includes sample chapters from Master of None and Master and Apprentice.
