Nahni feels that she is being sold by her Uncle Trent for some trillium. The Altarians have the trillium that his people need, and Great Prince Eriq needs a wife. If only the prince were like the warrior who has been haunting her dreams.
Eriq is in no hurry to take a new wife. He still feels that he failed to protect his first wife and unborn child. A woman haunts his dreams almost as if they are already mated, but he has no hope that Lady Lehr will be anything like the warrior princess who consumes his thoughts.
The people of Cedar are in need of trillium, and the Altarians need another alliance to strengthen themselves against the Cylians. An alliance is proposed between the Great Prince Eriq LoMoq and Nahni, Lady Lehr. Neither is enthused about the match, especially Nahni, who tries to run away - only to become more embroiled in the conflict and with the Great Prince himself.
This is a many-layered tale that I find myself wanting to read again. Nahni and Eriq have overcome great tragedies in their lives that have made them strong and difficult in equal parts. Nahni’s experience especially makes her leery of relationships and marriage. Her uncle seems to make no allowances for her in this matter, and her only ally is the cousin she saved. There are enough action and sensual scenes to keep every reader happy. The world that this author has created is easy to visualize and the plot makes sense, unlike many of this genre.
