Overview

Torn from her home in the Dales as a child, Nadelma has made a place for herself as the head cook in the Witch Queen of Azrimar's castle. She stays in the background of the busy court and uses her gentle magic gifts sparingly to help others. More or less content, she's made peace with the hard facts of her life. Romance, marriage, a family – all beyond her dreams any longer.

Then Halvor, an ambitious Dales lord rides into the city, bringing his mercenaries to serve the king, with the promise of a rich reward, including a title and an estate. The only catch? He has to marry a highborn Azrimaran noblewoman to seal the treaty.

Fate conspires to throw Nadelma and Halvor into each other's company and the attraction is instant and deep but both resist the attraction. She knows she can never have him for herself. He must fulfill the treaty to secure a safe place for his people to live, since their holding in the Dales was destroyed by the black magic of the Shadow. Marriage to a noble damsel of the king's choice is his fate.

Until he met Nadelma he thought his heart was frozen by the loss of all he cared for, back in the Dales. Now he knows better but his people must come first.

The situation is hopeless...or is it? For the king declares the city will celebrate Winter Solstice and hold a ball, where wishes and dreams just might come true.

WINTER SOLSTICE DREAM is a novella in the Magic of Claddare world, which began with THE CAPTIVE SHIFTER. This book is a standalone story, featuring Nadelma, who readers met briefly in the first book.
