Ruthless. Unforgiving. Unrepentant. But it just might be everything she needs.
Forced to apprentice to a powerful necromancer, Leikar endured pain and suffering no mortal should. Now a formidable mage in his own right, Leikar escaped his dark lord, and his unique skills earned him a place in the Holy Kingdom of Tamryn. He’ll do anything to keep his new home, anything, including marry a woman that despises him.
Three years ago, Annabelle’s husband was murdered, shattering her world and revealing a web of lies, treason, and infidelity that dated back long before they were married. Now she’s rebuilt a new life for herself, and she has no intention of ever letting herself love again. Especially not with a dark and dangerous mage.
But the past doesn’t forget, and as old enemies threaten to destroy them, Leikar and Annabelle have to make the ultimate choice. Can they embrace love and forgive the past, or will they be swallowed by the darkness?
