He Came to Her Bed Out of Duty...
From the darkness came a ship bearing Talon, a warrior priest, whose duty was to change Aria into a woman through the ancient ceremony known as The Given. As a Trancer, Aria knows what's expected of her when Talon comes to her bed. But what happens is unexpected. . . their souls bond and she becomes pregnant. Still, duty demands that Talon leave her. But when her Tower of Sisters is attacked by the wicked Reaper Lord, Mako, and their newborn son is kidnapped, Talon is her only hope in recovering their child.

Because of Fate He Returned...
Talon had abandoned his troubled past to become a Warrior. Then duty had demanded he abandon Aria, but he will not let it do so again. He knows the man who took their son, and despite Aria's belief that their son lives, Talon knows Mako would not have spared the child's life. To avenge his son, Talon vows that Mako will die by his sword.

Now Talon and Aria must travel in search of Mako—Talon for vengeance and Aria to keep Talon, her Giver, from committing murder and destroying their bond forever.
