Summary

She wakes up one day, stark naked, in a stranger's living room, without a clue of how she got there, who she is, or, really, anything that came before.  Everyone seems to think she's Bia, or Beatrice Kodaly, an old woman addicted to black lotus tea, which has given her the illusion of eternal youth and also made her forget everything else.  With nothing to go on but some photographs and fleeting, fragmented memories, Bia doesn't have much choice but to go along. 
But as time passes, she shows no signs of aging, and Bia finds it increasingly hard to believe that too much black lotus tea is the reason for her amnesia.  The only thing, the only person, who seems real to her is Pliny Steward.  But to him, she is only a lotus eater.  And he is henchman to the sadistic Lucas King, dealer of black lotus, and her enemy. 
Bia's search for answers seems to lead to black market dealings with the secretive island nation of Aur.  Perhaps the solution to the mystery, to herself, lies in that world of magic and nightmares.  But first, Bia must escape Lucas King, and she isn't sure she'll survive long enough to even discover who she is. 
Black Onyx Heart is a paranormal romance, third in the Exiles of Aur series.  It can be read as a stand-alone or in conjunction with the other books in the series.  Overall rating for sex, language, and violence is mild to moderate.

    In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell’s glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing…but which Whitridge twin is the right groom? 
    The penniless orphan of a disreputable earl, Lady Charlene Blanchard thrives on the adventure of picking the pockets of unsavory gentlemen to survive. But due to her extraordinary beauty and prized bloodlines, she is hand-chosen as a potential bride for the Duke of Baynton, who is on the hunt for a suitable wife to provide heirs. All Char has to do is act the part she was born to play and charm a duke she’s never laid eyes on into proposing. Except the duke turns out to be the tall, dark and sexy stranger who just caught her red-handed as a thief!  
    Or is he? Jack Whitridge is the duke’s twin who had “gone missing” over ten years ago. Now back in England, he knows that the supposed Lady who has his brother’s love is hardly duchess material—except he needs her to save his adopted country from war. He is willing to bargain with her heart, until he finds himself falling for Char . . .
