Fearful she will be punished for this magical ability and plagued by dreams of horrific events she fears may be memories from her past, she explores the secrets inside herself to better understand her present and future.
Dylan mac Connall was betrothed to Maere in the years before her parents’ death. Like Maere he is an orphan, but he has been raised by a woman wise in the ways of magic. Consumed by hatred, he will use his magic for revenge against Eugis, the man who murdered his father.
Maere’s uncle, Eugis, knows that Maere will come into her full magical powers when she turns eighteen. Legend says that whoever shares Maere’s bed first will also share her power. Eugis murdered her parents to ensure that he would control her future and be the one to bed her, but Dylan mac Connall is not about to let that happen.
Caught between two powerful men, Maere must decide which one to trust even as she has to learn to accept the magic within her.
