On an island of broken dreams, a princess washes ashore, as lost and forsaken as those that find her. Shayla is the Sheeman, Merdera's virgin princess, but her people don't want her.
King Lenard, ruler of this strange and beautiful land, has reason to loathe her kind. He's determined to use Shayla to gain his revenge, but finds her oddly compelling.
The two strike a simple bargain: her body for her freedom. Lenard will taint the world's beautiful sheeman. He will possess the virgin princess of Merdera, soil her with an outcast's touch, and with her virtue spoiled, she will gain her freedom.
Shayla planned to detach herself. To feel nothing as the king of this forsaken land used her body. Instead, his touch ignites her passion, fierce and wild, and hers wins his heart -- neither are part of their bargain.
Her secret will tear them apart and seal the deal, but is it what she really wants?
