About the Book

A magical ride. Unforgettable characters and twists and turns. Forget about sleeping, because I wasn't able to put this novel down until the end, and you won't be able to either.” —The Romance Reviews

The most powerful magic is love.

Jilian Stewart is no stranger to abandonment and guards her fragile heart diligently…but she can't escape her own dreams. A mysterious man invades them nightly, a man who may be connected to her mother's mysterious and sudden paralysis. Nothing prepares her for the man being real—and whisking her to his otherworldly home of Teganne.

Prince Alvarr has fought a years-long battle to protect his people from the necromancer Bhruic, and his magic is nearly depleted. He needs a Source, a woman possessed of potent mystical energy, to magnify his power. Though previously unaware of her gifts, Jilian will aid Alvarr if he helps her first, by finding the rare herb that will cure her mother.

Each needs the other, but neither Jilian nor Alvarr trust easily, despite their ever-growing attraction. Fraught with danger, the couple's journey is beset by betrayal and lies, secrets and deceit. But the explosive truth of Jilian's heritage may be the biggest secret of all….
