I’m so excited to be part of Lisa’s blog tour! She’s been an incredibly supportive writer friend and it’s fantastic to return the favor! I was first introduced to Lisa’s writing in one of the Journey of Wonders anthologies. Loved her story. I can’t wait to read The Binding Stone.
“Genies like you’ve never seen them, THE BINDING STONE is a wild ride of treachery and deception. For my first wish, I’d like a sequel, please.” – PERSONAL DEMONS author Lisa Desrochers
“I dream of Lisa Gail Green! The Binding Stone is magical in so many ways. My Djinn asks for my third wish? The sequel, of course!” – NYT Bestselling Author Nancy Holder
Tricked into slavery by the man she loved, the Djinni Leela has an eternity to regret her choices.
Awakened in the prison of her adolescent body, she finds a new master in possession of the opal that binds her. But seventeen-year-old Jered is unlike any she’s seen. His kindness makes Leela yearn to trust again, to allow herself a glimmer of hope.
Could Jered be strong enough to free her from the curse of the Binding Stone?
Jered storms up to his room, where I appear before him, head down, hair falling in my face. Will this be the point where he starts punishing me? I wonder. I think of things I might say to stop it from happening. Offering to change his mother’s memories perhaps. But the words catch in my throat.
“Leela,” he says, and his voice is painfully soft. “Are you okay?”
I lift my chin. “I couldn’t help it,” I say. Never once has an attempt
to defend myself worked with a Master. But for some reason I am compelled to try.
“It was my fault. Not yours. I’m sorry, Leela.”
Jered continues on, telling me that I should stay hidden from now on. That he’ll pretend he broke up with me. But my heart is caught on those first words, and I almost allow myself to hope that everything might be okay this time around.
