To Drive the Hundred Miles by Alec J. Marsh is a contemporary romance story with a lot of self-exploration, some fraught family moments, a new relationship, a bit of erotic spice, and a splash of magic added to the mix.

Something slid across my consciousness, deep and demanding. I looked up, into the thin stand of trees. A figure stood there, pale and undefined, crowned with antlers. He looked like he stood hundreds of feet away, as if I looked at him across a vast expanse, all his edges faded out. I had walked by those trees; he was maybe ten feet away. Any farther and he would be in the river. His antlers were magnificent, bone white and twenty-pointed, but when he stepped forward, they seemed to shiver and pass through the trees.
“Horned God,” I named him. “I thank you for coming, for hearing my plea. I thank you for your notice. Bring blessings to Beatrice Danielson and increase her prosperity.”
