After the Breaking, many flocked from their devastated homelands to the new province of Draema to begin anew. Those who called themselves Gaian chose to walk a different path. Now, love and danger bring them together again.
As Blademaster and First Heir to Draema and its Seven Colonies, Rhia Greysomne wants nothing more than to live her life as she always has-on her own terms. But when she learns that her father, the High Counsel, has summoned a childhood friend from across the border to protect her against an unknown threat, she is more than a bit put out. And worse, a case of mistaken identity finds them facing each other with blades drawn.
Who cares that he’s the one man who sets her blood on fire? So what if he's the fabled Wind Storm, Protector of the Realm of Gaia? As far as she's concerned, RuArk Miwatani is the spoiled boy she used to chase with her wooden practice blade after he'd yanked her braids as a child.
RuArk of Clan Miwatani is well aware Rhia doesn't want his concern, his presence, and least of all, his protection. Sizzling attraction wars with pride and deadly circumstances. Will it bring them together…or drive her away?
Whatever the cost, RuArk is determined to keep his word to Rhia’s father, and the Ancestors who’ve shown him that she is indeed, his. But can he convince her that he has much more to offer than his sword?
There is one truth: Once passion is awakened, it is as potent and lethal as any storm.
WARNING: Blades and bows go hand-in-hand with sexy magick-wielding warriors. This is NOT a standalone book and is intended to be read prior to the next volume.
