Athadia is a Healer, possibly the last of her dwindling race. Vaun is the warrior who rescues her—then refuses to let her go. She knows by his first touch he is a Latent, a half-blood and potential mate, but he’s also her mortal enemy. She needs to escape—hopefully with his unborn child in her womb.
Athadia keeps Vaun’s soldiers alive on their perilous journey back to Kerfdom, but once there, Vaun is ordered by his brother, the King, to kill her. Keeping her is viewed as treason, but she offers him a type of healing that has eluded him all his life. It can’t be love, though. Athadia is forbidden to take a life mate.
As conspiracies are revealed and war threatens, can they unite their people against a common foe? Or will she cause Vaun to be revealed as one of her own, ensuring they’re both killed and all hope of a future lost?
