In the DEPTHS of winter

In the harshest winter she has ever known, Litha abandons her family to save them. And in the frozen wilds she encounters a mysterious man – the only one who can save her.

Love and passion come together in this short dark paranormal romance, as Ava Ward explores sacrifice via sex and magic in the style of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel Series and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander.

The Man in White was long-listed for the OWT Short Fiction Prize in 2016.

“This author has a ton of talent! A lovely, heartbreaking story, beautifully told. Take a few minutes and let Ms. Ward show you this scene. The images will stay with you, forever. Maybe longer.” – Leo L., Amazon Review
