Beast Within: a Bonded fantasy #2
This book refers to characters and situations from Wild Within but may be read alone.
They were an unlikely yet perfect match: the combat champion and the pampered pearl. Vyur gives Freezha
everything she ever dreamed of in the bedroom. She revels in her new sexuality, pushing her shapeshifter
farther every day. She thinks she wants everything he's got. But when your husband isn't human, asking
for it all might come back to bite you.
Freezha is more than a pretty face, and she has set some very defined goals. First, no devouring with
lizzeed teeth. Second, much devouring through touch. Preferably carnal touch, if she can loosen Vyur's
legendary warrior's control. A public mating ceremony is looming soon, and they need more practice with
both goals. There has to be a way for them to enjoy each other safely.
Vyur's mate was terrified and hurt by rowdy youth recklessly unleashing their battleforms. Now he will
break several rules to heal her. His dream Bonding is within his grasp if she can trust him... and his
best friend. His woman sees many things she'd like to change in his culture, but this piece she must
accept. There's no room for compromise when the issue is life and death.

"BEAST WITHIN is an interesting and unusual twist on 'normal' shapeshifter themes. The plot was
fascinating and different, but Mima did a great job of making her fantasy world real and believable.
... The romance is terrific and both partners must learn to deal with differences because of their
interspecies relationship. ... I certainly hope Mima continues as I would love to visit this world
Alpha Within: a Bonded fantasy #3
To take her place at his side, she has to master the alpha within...
Dar hunted for the uniquely powerful bodymage for two years. Then the Snowcat Alpha discovers she is
more than his Clan's last chance... she is his personal destiny. He is triumphant when he finally
corners her and drags her back to their lair.
Luna is deeply familiar with what desperation does to people. She understands it can drive them into
situations they know are wrong. So she doesn't blame Dar when his shapeshifter nature slips his rigid
control. Their fiery connection surprised them both. But understanding with the brain doesn't always
equal a peaceful heart, and she's not sure she'll be able to come back from seeing a monster in her bed.
Somehow, Luna has to overcome her fear, because she has never wanted anything for herself the way she
wants this brave man.
The Alpha's patience needs to heal the healer... before the whole Clan is lost.

"It captured my attention from the first page, setting my heart racing and pulse pounding. Ms. Mima has
written a volcanic blend of discovery, love and acceptance that is not for the shy or faint of heart.
The harsh world of the Truxet continues to evolve in this story. Characters from Wild Within return
offering the reader the chance to catch up with their lives. Luna is a woman that is fully in charge
of her own life and sexuality. I love the fact that while she is not willing to lose herself completely
to Dar's demands but she is willing to compromise. Dar is true to his alpha nature, demanding, driven,
sensual yet very deeply emotional and caring. I instantly fell in love with him. The sex between the
two is very raw, intense and HOT! I can't wait to dive into Ms. Mima's next offering."

her guild, honor dictates that he stay far away from the woman who could be his mate. She can never be

"This was a very interesting work of fiction. I noticed a lot of poetry in the descriptions. The author
was somewhat formal, but seemed to capture the spirit of what she was writing. The erotic passages were
well thought out and beautiful. She captured tragedy, love, fear, prejudice, and acceptance very well,
and I would love to know if any of her characters are based off of old legends of some kind. The author
was very passionate about what she was writing and the tragic aspects of the book seemed to have a very
personal flavor, she described them so well. Her inner child was very present in Eledi, who I think
charmed the whole book."

Spirit Within: a Bonded fantasy #6
Darkmages erased her life, made her slave, and destroyed her faith. He recreated her. Assigned as the
Hawk's caretaker, she found a new purpose. Ty gave her back gentleness while hanging in chains. He
even gave her a name: Sunshine. He saw her scars, her dark choices, and her survival with total
acceptance. But Ty's self-perceptions are twisted by a final cruelty. Her man forgave her, but can't
forgive himself. They found each other in the darkest hour, and they bonded in necessity. Somehow,
they will have to forge a path together that outshines the shadows they survived.
Check out this reader's quote from Elune:
"Spirit Within was so darkly powerful it kind of stuck to me, especially with the new intriguing stuff
about Dom & Rowan. And the new insight into the darkmages (Thad's story is great!) was cool too. I
loved how it slowly built throughout the series with something small happening in each one until it all
started to come together. I'd have to say Spirit Within was the one that got to me the most."
Flame Within: a Bonded fantasy #7
Odan couldn't imagine a woman less suited to this mission, but he is reluctantly impressed with how hard
she works to succeed at it. Delicate, haughty, with aggressive and decidedly fiery tendencies, she's

Vivienne has hidden her true self for years, afraid to lose control of her future. As Odan strips away
her masks one by one, she is surprised to discover she loves the world he opens up. He's maddening,
but tender. And strength is very sexy.

they train together, they grow in respect... and attraction. Furiously working to bring down the
lizard birds terrorizing the Cities, they make a beautiful, deadly pair. Which really enrages the
darkmages who control the birds. Vivienne will have to flare brighter than she ever has before, even
if it burns all her disguises away.

Hidden Within: a Bonded fantasy #10
This book is the epic conclusion to the series, revisiting all prior characters.
It particularly closes a storyline begun in Book 6, Spirit Within,
but includes a character glossary to support readers.
No one has his powers.
Dom can taste the final battle. He craves it, aching to sink his fangs into the darkmages. As the
ruthless leader of the shapeshifters, Dom will pay any price to bring the enemy Fortress down, including
ordering his heart to the front lines.
No one has her powers.
The Truth-teller Rowan has spent twelve years as a captive of humans, darkmages, and now the Beasts. A
betrayed oracle, she has seen her own future. It was supposed to be hard, but lead to happiness. Yet
now, after so much pain and waiting, it is not as she foresaw. Bitter yet fearless, she leaps toward
the challenge Dom offers. All she wanted was a family, but instead she will save the world.
When these two people combine their powers, no one is ready. Not his people, not hers, not the
enemy, and especially not them.
When Dom watches Rowan sink under the weight of her own Truths, he discovers one himself. All of his
beasts agree she will belong to him. Their Bond is much more than practicality. But what if the woman
leading the battle doesn't understand she holds the Clans' sanity in her hands?
