Luna, Dec 2004, 13.95, 400 pp.
Ephame is the offspring of a mating between a human and a centaur; from the waist up she is human, but from the waist down she is covered with brown hair and has hoofs. Her genes make her stronger and faster than her human counterparts. Although she loves her mother, she needs to make a life for herself. She intends to return Castle MacCallan to its former glory and become the new clan chieftain. Centaurs and humans welcome her as the rightful owner.
Ephame meets Lachlan, who is half-human and half Fomonian; they fall in love even though their races have been enemies ever since his invaded Parthelon, destroyed Castle MacCallan, and kidnapped human women because their own are sterile. Lachlan believes that Ephame can lift the curse of the hybrids and allow the evil Fomonian side to vanish.
EPHAME'S CHOICE is an adult fantasy about two “Romeo and Juliet” hybrids falling in love with the backdrop of cross species hatred to keep them apart.
