But evil haunts the woods of Hernewood Abbey. As the Druid festival of Beltane approaches, a sinister cult seeks a virgin sacrifice. Their intended victim: Lizzie. Her only defender-and the man likely to relieve her of her dangerous maidenhood-is the mysterious Gabriel, the Dark Man, a fellow outcast and scholar of Druidism. The forest calls to them both.
Their irresistible attraction, both mystical and bawdy, may be the only force more powerful than the cult's dark purpose.
