Tiarnán Malone is one of the best warriors of the Guardians. Sent to meet a woman to pick something up for his mentor, he saves the woman who is to be his mate. And his artifact. Circumstances throw them together, but while he knows they are meant to be, she isn't as easily convinced.
Calida Michaels can't complain about how her new savoir and companion looks. However, she's not so quick to buy this 'mates forever' talk, especially when there's another woman who takes precedence over her, time and time again.
Despite all that's going on around her and her feelings for him, Calida eventually leaves, unable to withstand the pain. Will Tiarnán reach her in time or will she be gone forever, relegating him to a world completely driven by night?
