Jenna dan Aron, a Shielder with psychic abilities, finds
herself reluctantly married to Arion of Saura, a Leor who
seems more beast than man, and who has no place in his life
for softness or emotion. She finds life in the Leor
settlement barbaric and beyond her experience. Her fierce
warrior husband is her only buffer and her only lifeline,
yet she finds herself challenging him and the ways of the
Leors. In turn, he tries to resist the unfamiliar,
protective urges his soft human mate raises in him, while
they're both stunned by the sensual attraction that rages
between them. And in the relentless heat of the wild Sauran
desert, Jenna and Arion wage a battle of wills—until they
discover that the heart is mightier than any weapon, and l!
ove can forge shadow and fire together.
