"Exhilarating love story"
After three failed passages to find his HEARTMATE,
Holm Holly, heir to the House of Holly, believes he has

Lark heals the haughty Holm Holly, but while she works
his wound, he shockingly realizes she is his HEARTMATE.
However, winning her over and forging the bond with her
will be very difficult as Holm also knows that their
respective families hate one another. As he works to win
Lark's love and ultimate bond with her, her kin stabs his
mother using a poisoned blade. The family feud explodes
even while Holm continues his quest to gain the love of
his HEARTMATE, who shares his feelings but feels their
love is meant to fail.
