Wendy Knight – Sea of Flames

He’s loved her since he was five years old. And he will never feel her touch.Adara is literally fire, and Beck is ice. Even the barest hint of touch burns them both. He loves her with everything he has. Which is why he has to let her go. Beck and Adara were raised together at Vitolas Academy, an elite boarding school for elementals. They learned to add, subtract, read, and harness the powers flowing through them. They learned to fight. To become soldiers. Warriors. Hunters. But never lovers. It would hurt too much. It takes everything Beck has to keep Adara at arms’ length. She deserves a life with physical affection, and that’s a life he can’t give her. Not without a miracle. A miracle that might come from the last source he expects–the monsters that he’s spent his whole life learning to fight. The monsters that threaten his whole world. The monsters that hold the key to Adara’s heart and soul.
