In hiding all her life, Layala prepares for the day the wicked High Elf King Thane will come to steal her- his powerful mate. She trains to take her revenge for the wrongful execution of her parents, who died for her freedom.
Now that day has come, forcing her to come face-to-face with what she's hidden from: a dangerous, dark-haired, warrior king determined to marry her.
After she's shoved into a black carriage pulled by six ominous steeds, Layala makes plans to take her captors' lives and free herself...
...but Thane has a secret that makes it impossible for Layala to slay him. She has an even darker truth that makes loving her forbidden, no matter how much Thane wants to touch.
