"A magical ride. Unforgettable characters and twists and turns. Forget about sleeping, because I wasn't able to put this novel down until the end, and you won't be able to either." -The Romance Reviews

Enter a world where love is a perilous magic.
When an unexpected inheritance leads Jilian Stewart to the Scottish Highlands, her world falls apart. By day she's at the hospital bedside of her mother, who is falling prey to a mysterious, life-ending paralysis; at night she's bedeviled by dreams of a mesmerizing stranger. Then her visions twist into a shocking reality: the stranger pulls Jilian into a magical battle in another realm - as his weapon.

Jilian must accept new truths: magic is real, she has it, and lives are at stake.

Prince Alvarr of Teganne is a desperate man. His ancient kingdom is threatened by the darkest of sorcerers and he'll do whatever it takes to save the innocent people relying upon him - even abduct a woman who never knew about the magic in her blood. Royally certain Jilian will do exactly as he commands, he's astonished when she instead demands a trade: a cure for her mother's paralysis in exchange for her help.

Driven together by secrets and treachery, the last thing these reluctant allies seek is love... yet with a realm in peril, only love can forge the most powerful magic of all.
