About the Book

Divider for Ironclad Devotion

A faerie princess evading her fate…

Earth is no place for a faerie, but Kira can’t go home without dooming her people. Desperate to avoid the pull of her homeland, she fosters an abandoned girl, the child’s joy a source of much-needed energy.

A blacksmith with something to prove…

When Zachary Chase discovers he has a daughter, he’s determined to be part of his child’s life and not repeat his mother’s neglect. But to open the little girl’s heart, he must earn her foster mother’s trust.

One night is never enough…

Despite their rivalry, Kira and Zac’s desires tempt them into one no-consequences night. Yet the more passion flares between them, the more Kira risks destroying the life she’s carved out on Earth—and endangering those she cares about in both worlds.

Mythos Information


How Does Ironclad Devotion tie in to the Mythos World?

(Warning: Potential Spoilers Below…)
  • Treasured Claim mentioned that dragons used to have a homeland. Now, readers learn how they lost it, the reasons for the dragon-faerie war, and how dragons came to Earth.

  • In Treasured Claim, Elaina’s hair is described as “changeling,” which she inherited from her mother, who presumably had faerie blood in her lineage. Kira of Ironclad Devotion gives a detailed look at pure-blood changeling hair.

  • In Pure Sacrifice, Markos learns of connections between some faeries and unicorns. The reason why those faeries would have worked with unicorns is revealed here, as Kira learns the gargoyles are missing from the palace and new guards had been needed. The fallout of those connections for unicorns caught in the middle is also alluded to here.

  • More of the Mythos plane is explored, including the elemental spirits of the faerie homeland and of Mythos itself, as well as how each race taps into different styles of magic.

  • Like in Pure Sacrifice, we see Zac ensure the importation of non-living material doesn’t cause an imbalance between planes.

Bonus Information: Background Research

(Warning: Potential Spoilers Below…)

Most details were based on real facts, and the Pinterest board above contains images of the inspiration for Zac’s house and many locations. Even the initial inspiration for the story came from a newspaper article by Karina Bland about B.A.C.A. (Bikers Against Child Abuse). Sadly, Moose’s bar is from imagination, but Cave Creek in Arizona is home to a well-known Bike Week every year.

Can’t imagine Zac’s cowboy ringtone? Here’s the inspiration.

Kira true name comes from a blending of several names from European languages with meanings like: fairy queen, throne, sunrise, spark, fiery ones, light, etc.

The Navajo prayer of Zac’s grandfather isn’t based on an actual ceremony (both in the interest of the characters’ lack of time and for privacy of the Navajo culture), but Sani’s misunderstanding of Kira’s nature is based on real Navajo teachings about the gods and holy ones.

Not sure what a house decorated with wrought iron would look like? Here’s an image with that inspiration…
