A story of love that transcends time, set in a unique world full of beauty, wonder and dangers.
Ibor – He didn’t think he would find her again in this life time… but here she was… maddeningly beautiful and alluring filling all his senses until he had to have her again.
Erin – The surprise of finding her life mate was enough to knock her of balance. But finding Ibor, Chief of the Dragon Talon Clan was beyond anything or anyone she had ever imaged. Every look, every smile and caress just pulled her in further into a world she was not quite ready for.

He yanked her wrist toward him, intent on seeing her mark. “Unhand me. How dare you touch a royal member of the Valley Mountain Clan!”
Ibor looked at the woman in front of him. When he had first walked into the cell, she seemed meek and afraid. But as soon as she saw him approach she straightened her shoulders. Then he caught sight of her long black hair and vibrant violet eyes. He had never seen eyes like hers. Women in his clan did not possess exotic features such as these. The women of the Dragon Talon Clan had an earthy kind of beauty. This woman’s beauty could only be defined as celestial. If he were a foolish young man, he would have thought she was one of the Gods’ own guardians. Women and men were said to have immeasurable beauty.
For a second, he hesitated but didn’t let go of her hand. He studied her steadfast stance. She did carry herself like royalty, but she didn’t have an escort – a custom that all clans still practiced. Furthermore, the woman had no scarves that represented a royal and her house. The only thing that would prove her words true was a royal mark on the inside of her left wrist, which was presently covered by the softest buttery-leather gloves he had ever handled.
“Take off the garments on your hands.” He demanded.
The woman thrust her chin up and folded her arms over her chest. “I will do no such thing! It is freezing in this damn cave you have thrown me in.”
“If you do not remove your gloves, I will remove them myself. Heed my warning, for it will not be given twice.”
She inhaled deeply. Now, what would she do? Those gloves were her last protection. Without her scarves and no one to back up her claim, she was doomed. Their complex society dictated that every female carry a mark. Erin eyed the man standing in front of her with his imposing form. He had shoulder-length brown hair with streaks of light and dark. Eyes as intense as burning embers in a fire. At the same time, those eyes looked like golden liquid orbs. She was stupefied. The man standing before her was a magnificent specimen of masculinity and for a moment she forgot exactly what was happening.
