Pure: New World Magic Book One - Book cover‘A unicorn walks into a bar….’
That is not a joke.
Look, I’m a bartender, I have nothing to do with the xenos. I don’t care if it’s an elf or a vampire--as long as they don’t bother me, I steer clear. I have my reasons--you can see them in the scars on my neck.
I never wanted to get involved. But my life changed for the second time when I saved the life of a unicorn. I made an enemy of something old--old and evil, and whatever it was, it’ll be back for another try. I also made a friend when I decided to help March. He’s only been a human man for a day. I’m responsible for him now. He’s my friend…and maybe something more. Maybe a lot more.
It doesn’t matter to me that he isn’t magical anymore. I don’t care if he’s not PURE.
But he does.
From best-selling author Kim Alexander, a modern fairy tale of magic, love, and redemption.

Author's Note: 

The inspiration for PURE has been hanging over my desk since I was about ten years old. I was lucky enough to have a mom who dragged me to the museums every weekend, and being a New Yorker, the museum was the Metropolitan Museum of Art. On one of those trips, I bought the print you’ll see at the bottom of this post; The Unicorn in Captivity.
PURE is the story of a unicorn who is indeed in captivity: his name is March and he’s trapped as a human man. When I knew that was the story I wanted to tell, I had to figure out why he changed from an immortal, perfect creature to a mortal man, whether he liked it or not, and what happened next. That was my heroine, Ruby. She’s a bartender with a traumatic past and she saves his life--but it puts them both in deep trouble. After all, if someone went to the trouble of trying to kill a unicorn once, they probably won’t give up. So my unicorn (who is trying to figure out how to be a man) and Ruby (who is trying to figure out how to resist the charms of someone who is way more than he appears) are on the run, helped along the way by some friends, both magical and mortal.
Spoiler: Ruby doesn’t fight super hard to against March’s appeal. (I don’t blame her.)
