Summary

An archaeology student is transported back to an ancient Ethiopian kingdom where, reborn as a warrior priestess, she must save their civilization from an evil as old as time    Archaeology student and expert in African history Tallahassee Mitford has been asked to authenticate some ancient artifacts. But there’s a strange energy emanating from the relics, which, according to legend, can hold the soul of an entire nation. As she examines an ankh, talisman of the Egyptian gods and the key to all life, Tallahassee hears a deafening clap of thunder, followed by total darkness. She awakens to find herself lying under a scorching desert sun, surrounded by ruins and pyramids. She has been kidnapped by the powerful spirits released from the ankh and hurled back in time to a Nubian kingdom in Meroe, a little-known nation that exists in the shadow of Egypt.   Reborn as Ashake, a magnificent warrior princess, Tallahassee must help Candace Naldamak, ancient Queen of Meroe, defeat the evil Khasti, who has found a way to pierce the walls between timelines. Ensnared in a power struggle for the throne, guided only by her knowledge of African history and her own free will, Tallahassee will endure a life-threatening trial by fire before she learns the true reason she has been summoned here.

    To save her, I have to master magic beyond my ability, but even that might not be enough. And if I fail, Devan will be forced back across the Threshold where a fate worse than death awaits.

    The dramatic conclusion to the breathtaking saga of the children of Acorna and Aari. 
    Khorii, the rebellious daughter of Acorna, the near-mythic heroine of her people, has tried to follow in her mother's footsteps in this time of plague and terror. But the pressure on the courageous young woman to succeed is tremendous, and the legacy she is expected to fulfill is overwhelming. 
    The insidious enemy that has ravaged countless known worlds has left Khorii's illustrious parents too weak to oppose it. Now, as the deadly foe prepares to launch its devastating final assault, it falls to Acorna's children—Khorii and her newly discovered sister, Ariin—to halt the brutal attack once and for all. But victory may prove too difficult, elusive, and ultimately fragile—and even time itself may be conspiring against the daughters in their desperate battle to save their family . . . and their universe.

    	No one is more productive at work than Mercy, who is blessed with both lust and avarice now - and both sins leave her with too much energy to deal with! For a week Mercy has not slept a wink, opting to instead put in overtime at work, clean her house every day, and probably train for a marathon too. It's gotten to the point where her coworkers are noticing her for all the wrong reasons.
    
    	That's why the next sinner to visit her is Sloth, a lethargic beauty who invites Mercy into her "dream world." What Mercy discovers on the other side of consciousness is a world where anything is possible. Anything except actual sleep!
    
    	Sins of Mercy is a series of erotic short stories about one woman's reawakening to the world around her through physical pleasure. It features mature themes such as adult relations and depression. "Sloth" is approximately 7,000 words.
