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.
