At sixteen I fled from my mate, the powerful Fae Lord Ahman, the prince’s enforcer.

He has haunted my dreams since, seducing me, demanding I reveal my hidden location.

I cannot. If he discovers the darkness enveloping the village I rule, he will be forced to kill us all—starting with me.

But my power over my entrapped demon is weakening, and with every moment my will not to submit dissolves. The mate I rejected is now my only hope.

Even if our first kiss is our last.

When he finally finds me, I realize I have feared succumbing to the wrong beast.

Ahman will not release me, even to death.
