Shes the virgin daughter of a learned alchemist and a gifted swordsmith in her own right, an occupation she keeps secret lest she become a political pawn in a battle of power between two evil rulers: the usurper General Raghiln on her side of the River Noir, and Lord Cahan, the overlord of Castle Weild, on the other.Her secret is threatened when cruel Lord Cahan abducts innocent Melle, a brazen capture that sets into motion a shift in military might... and in them. For not only is the innocent virgin not what she seems, neither is the brutish warlord.These two enemies have naught in common save this: both fight their growing feelings for one another.Lord Rahan believes in sorcery about as much as he believes in love, which is to say not at all- whilst Melle craves love every bit as much as she longs to escape the brothel in which her dark captor has imprisoned and used her as his forbidden whore.And so begins the war of wills between the real overlord of the land and a pretend witch who must choose sides- between two stubborn lovers hiding too many damnable secrets- between a quelled dominant male and a wildly shameless submissive female- between two differing individuals, one who gives her trust gladly and one unwilling to trust even himself- between a staid royal who would rather believe in witchcraft than believe in love and an exuberant peasant literally bound to convince him otherwise.
