Taraca thought she knew her father, but after her mother died he changed. Finding herself promised to a man old enough to be her grandfather, the full truth of her father’s change becomes evident. Determined not to marry the man her father has promised her to, Taraca runs. But she runs into worse things than a marriage to an old man.
Yarrow has loved Taraca for years. Convinced he’s no good for her due to his blood relation to the dreaded Kellians, he never pursued her. But when he finds she is to be wed to an old man, he knows his love will run. Following her, he sees her taken by the Kellians and pursues her to make a claim to their king. But another, cruel adversary stands in his way. A challenge is made. One Yarrow vows to win, because to do so will free his beloved Taraca.
Yarrow’s self-flagellation was sad. Taraca sums it up in one sentence, and he sees how truly right for him she is. The evil Cryoe was too much, and I wished for his death and dismemberment many times. Yarrow was sweet and strong, and even though he and Taraca had never truly connected, he knew her. The challenge was hot and steamy, but also horrifying. Honor and duty get in the way of their relationship, but once again true love finds a way.
