"Can a young prince overcome the horrors of the past to find love"

Some words to describe eighteen-year old Conar McGregor, Prince of the Wind, could be arrogant, over confident, spoiled, petulant, snotty, at least at first glance. Romance readers will immediately realize however that such brash behavior often hides some deep seated insecurities. The tip off is that so many of his friends and subjects greatly love the handsome young prince an indication of the intrinsic good inside of him.

Conar's enigmatic behavior stems from the fact that the young man has been promised from birth to a woman he has no desire to wed, the Princess Anya Elizabeth of Oceania, reported to be so ugly that her own parents could not bear to look upon her. Add to that he has just met the woman who will own his soul, known to him only as Liza who is brave and stunningly beautiful. Vying for his body and soul is the evil sorcerer, Kaileel Tohre, a Cardinal of the Domination, the subject of Conar's nightmares.

The Brotherhood of the Domination is the force of evil, a perverted religious sect composed of male priests. Fostered to the Wind Temple at the age of six, Conar had been one of the Chosen, a boy selected to be an initiate of the sect, subject to their perverted pleasures. He had escaped, when at the age of thirteen, despair had driven him to attempt suicide. He had been sent home without being initiated.

The tale begins when Conar is beset by a trio of thieves in a stable. He is skilled and is confident of his ability to overcome them, until a fourth becomes involved and his life is saved by another hidden in the in the rafters. The fellow turns out to be a young woman of perhaps sixteen years. She is lovely and drives him to forsake the vow of celibacy that is a condition of his marriage contract with the Oceanan princess. Conar is new to celibacy as witnessed by his numerous love children and he feels little loyalty to his betrothed whom he refers too as the toad. More than that is the fact that Conar has recognized the girl, Liza, as the keeper of his soul.

Liza too has secrets. She is a Daughter of the Multitude, a sorceress. For reasons of her own she does not reveal her origins to Conar. He knows not who she is or where she comes from, nor does it matter to him until she disappears to allow him his honor as the marriage approaches. Liza is aware that there are dark forces who will fight her claim to Connor but she is determined to protect him with her life.

Tohre, unable to bear Conar's happiness with another, will stop at nothing to own him once more. This is a classic tale of good vs. evil. Good seems to have prevailed for the moment, but evil has begun amass it's strength. Book two is entitled The Windseeker.
