If marrying Egeus of the Silverfin clan helps Herma learn about her aunt's disappearance years before, then she'll endure their arranged marriage. Especially since by marrying Egeus, she'd help to join the Silverfin and Shimmertail clans in an important alliance. Herma counts
herself lucky Egeus is handsome and nice. That's more than she has a right to hope from a state marriage.
Egeus is of a different opinion. In fact, ever since he first laid eyes on Herma, Egeus wanted her. When it came time to arrange a marriage, he would join with no one but Herma of the Shimmertail clan.
Now, in Herma he's found a sensually responsive mate, and he's determined to show her all the wonders of his undersea
world...starting with making love.
Because at some point, Herma is going to learn the truth about the past. And when she finds out, she'll have to make a choice -- the aunt she loved, or her mate, and Egeus refuses to give her up. He'll use whatever bonds he can forge to keep Herma for himself.
