In last week’s comments, I mentioned giving Stefan a chance to come forward. Since the book is written in 1st POV we have to rely on Emerald reading from Stefan’s journal to get a look inside what he is thinking.
Stefan was initially the main male of the story but Emerald really does not like him for a large portion of the book. When writing the story I realized that unless something changed Stefan and Emerald were never going to reconcile.
Little did I know that Stefan’s journal would sway one heart, Max, which as we know has caused several changes to occur that shouldn’t have (or so I thought).
Since I hate getting lost while reading a book and this excerpt is combining different portions from several pages, I have decided to add a little bit of author guidance.
In the excerpt below, we start with Stefan’s journal, Morrigan mixing in again and end with Emerald’s acceptance, well to the potential cure anyway.

When Emerald La Roe ran away 300 years ago, she had not planned to return. However, after repeated dreams from Goddess Morrigan, Emerald finally realizes she has no choice. Emerald not only finds a magical sword waiting for her, but her dead husband also. It seems Stefan O’ Duff wants’ reconciliation and help to cure the curse they share.
Emerald would rather see him dead than be with him again, she has someone else to consider though. Her new love, Maxwell Howard a werewolf, who through sharing blood with Emerald, now faces the same fate as Emerald and Stefan. For the cure to work, Emerald has to put her hatred of Stefan aside and consent to share his bed again.
Can Emerald put 300 years of anger aside to save them or will she sacrifice all their futures and kill him as she swore to do?
(This scene takes place a little after Emerald and Max were reading Stefan’s journal… and is back to Emerald’s POV)
Emerald is in the garden at this point and having a conversation with the Goddess Morrigan.
