special power inside her that will help him protect his
country. Conscience shouts that he should send her home to
her hills, but desire whispers that her place is with him
Little does Nichoas know that Sera is a princess in

danger lurks everywhere. As Sera struggles to keep her
secrets, find the ruby, and master the magic inside her,
she instincltively turns to the compelling captor who
overwhelms her with his strength and confounds her with his
comfort. But what good can come from loving an Outlander
when every instinct tells her to flee this brutal world and
return home to safely and peace?
