After a fire destroyed her home and her fiancé abandoned her, Zora Austin did all she could to put her life back together and forget the Christmas wedding she’d always longed to have.
More than a year later she is doing well. Then a day spent at a late Autumn festival takes a turn when a strange vendor lures her into a tent and gifts her with a crystal containing a tiny medieval warlord. Inexplicably compelled, she takes the figurine home with her. The moment her fingertips graze across the smooth top, she is pulled into the crystal and into the barbarian’s very real embrace.
An awaited reprieve…
Before the spirited beauty in the bridal gown tumbled into his arms and subsequently freed him, highland warlord, Thedan the Dark had known only a thirst for vengeance and a fierce longing for that which he’d been too long denied…his foretold bride.
Convincing her that she is his might be difficult. Finding a way to keep the crystal from reclaiming him for all time may prove impossible. Still, if he can escape the power of the curse, will he choose long awaited vengeance or a new life with his bride in a world so different from all he’ has ever known?
