For lovers of true romance comes an intense and thrilling love story that will steal your breath away! Immerse yourself in a time and place of fierce warriors, daring women, and love that conquers all.
Decades after a pandemic, North America is ruled by lords, men of strength and will. Victor Strongheart, lord and warrior, journeys to meet the young woman that as required by treaty, he must wed. Annasai is beautiful, bright, and seductive. Strongheart is pleased. Annasai's cousin, Setiyah, is all nettles and stings, dark and dangerous as a stormy night. He is glad she's not to be his bride.
But at the betrothal feast, Setiyah dances the sensual Fire Dance under the glow of a full moon. The darkly bewitching girl moves to the beat of tribal drums. Firelight lays shadows on the hollow at the base of her neck. The soft slope of her breasts glows golden and warm. She whirls, and the sound of the tiny beads woven into her myriad of braids is like the patter of raindrops on a summer's eve.
Strongheart watches as one enthralled. He knows well that the heart is a treacherous thing, and his has just betrayed him. But Setiyah is forbidden fruit; one he can only taste at the risk of war.
