Overview

An earth dragon, long-lived and skilled in the ways of magic, Magnus Silverclaw has hunted relentlessly for his errant human lover. He is furious and bitter over what he considers Leida's betrayal and seeks retribution by having her sentenced to four years of enforced servitude to him--in a position far below the one she once occupied as his mistress. He does not anticipate her horrified reaction to the punishment or the reason for it, and her revelation leaves him reeling with shock and jealousy. After nearly four years of evading capture, Leida of the Glimmer South stands bound before a tribunal of dragon judges, accused of theft and the illicit use of dragon magic. Once the favorite of the dragon lord, Magnus Silverclaw, she faces punishment for a crime considered high treason among dragons. Leida is still deeply in love with Magnus but refuses to divulge her reasons for why she stole from him and left without warning four years earlier. Only the threat of enslavement makes her reveal a carefully guarded secret, one that can either reunite her with Magnus or tear her from him forever...

Read an Excerpt

"I have lived for more than three hundred years," he said, watching with satisfaction as tiny chills raced up her arms in reaction to his voice, "and I still do not understand the way of the human mind, especially that of the human female."

She remained stubbornly silent, though he sensed her curiosity. He dropped her hands and plucked briefly at her skirt. "You left a life of luxury and riches. I was a generous master. You had your own servants, and I draped you in jewels. All I asked in return was your company and your music." He ran a finger over her arm, scowling when she jerked away from his touch. "What thing so tempting lured you away so that you not only stole from me, but are content to live in poverty and endless toil?"

His patience deserted him as she continued to stare at the floor and say nothing. A faint whimper escaped her mouth when he gripped her chin and forced up her head. Her gray eyes darkened with a dull misery as she finally met his gaze. "Answer me, Leida," he snapped.

"I was a possession," she whispered. "A thing to be owned, like your treasures, and cast aside when I no longer gleamed so brightly."

Magnus worked to control the anger seething and bubbling in his veins. "You were the favorite. My favorite. I held you above all others in my service."

A single hot tear dripped onto his knuckle, sliding between his fingers.
