Until now, Fire Elemental Tansy has only known a life of servitude in the kitchens. Her abilities are weak, too weak to be any use in the war against Chaos, but she can sure make a mean spaghetti. If only she could get handsome, aloof warrior Rowan to taste her… cooking.

Rowan is a Botanical Elemental, which sounds great, except he doesn’t feel very powerful, or useful. When disaster befalls the lovely cook and he can’t save her, he begins to seriously doubt his place among the other warriors. If only he could use his powers all the time, but it seems the only way to do that is to… fall in love.

Rowan must learn whose acceptance matters most, while Tansy learns that her powers can be used for more than just kitchen magic.
