Releasing Her Power Within (Fae Shifters 1) by Madilynn Dale
Family secrets lead to an explosive discovery in this enthralling first installment. Things don’t seem to add up and her life is constantly threatened in the pursuit of love. Is there a way to find an answer for it all?
Liz is your typical overworked Physical Therapy Assistant. She loves her job but has come to a time in her life where the stress from being overworked, and the passing of her mother, has left her with a sense of wanting. Adventure hasn’t always been on her list of things to do, but it seems that this next chapter of her life may not exactly be what she had in mind. The cabin that was left for her when her mom passed is originally her grandmother’s and has many stories to tell. Unfortunately for Liz, these stories reveal a tale that she was not quite ready for.
After some thought and external pressures, Liz decides to make the leap and go the road less traveled. She moves to the cabin and takes the new job. With renewed life and purpose, she also uncovers mysteries surrounding the cabin and her heritage. There’s a shift in the winds. Can Liz come to understand it? Or will the winds drown her out?

Can you share one highlight from the book?
“Hey, man, don’t hurt her. Whatever you want, we’ll give it to you. Just let her go.”
“Stay where you are, or I will hurt her. I want both of your wallets and whatever valuables you have. It you move, this knife will go into her throat.”
I feel him push into my throat more. I feel a small cut open up, and blood slowly trickles down my throat. I feel the warmth and pain, and my mind seems to stop working. I stand in horror and feel as if this will be the last moment of my life. I don’t even flinch when the man gropes my ass.
I look up to meet Cam’s gaze at the end of the alley as I sense some type of change in the air. It’s almost as if an electrical current is moving through the air. I try not to whimper as the pain from my neck throbs and itches, and more blood runs down. I blink rapidly, fighting back tears, keeping Cam’s gaze and notice a strange glow that seems to come from his eyes. He tosses his wallet at the man, and it lands a few feet away. I watch as it falls and glance back up at Cam. At that moment, the man roughly shoves me to the side, and I skid across the dirty concrete floor of the alley.
