War tore them apart. Betrayal could bring them together...
Layla Brightarrow's world fell apart the day the Sorcerers invaded her city, intent on using her fellow humans' pain to augment their spells. Worse, the neighboring elven kingdom declared neutrality, effectively abandoning her people to struggle for survival.
Then some of the elves break neutrality to trade with the Sorcerers, and Layla is ordered to assassinate Althir, brother of the elf lord she has secretly loved all her life.
When Ulric of Glengowyn uncovers his brother's plot-and that Layla is one of the assassins sent to stop him-his first instinct is to protect her from all possible harm. He'll even use seduction, if necessary, to get her into a position to talk some sense into her.
Years of pent-up desire is too much for Layla to resist...and one touch unleashes an unquenchable fire that changes everything. Leaving Layla caught between duty and a love that could be her destruction. Or her salvation.
Warning: This book contains evil sorcerers, a scarred heroine, a sexy elf hero, naughty language, and an intoxicating and addicting pheromone that leads to wildly hot sex. Plus traitors, deadly magic, bespelled baddies, and a really, really rotten brother.
