She’s a powerful mage. He’s a hardened warrior. It will take them both to slay a monster.

Phera is a protector. As one of the water mages from the esteemed Academy of Mages who maintains law and order, she’s known for being clever and resourceful, if a touch overzealous. But faced with a deadly foe, Phera makes a costly mistake. Blood magic is forbidden, no matter the outcome. She’s brought to trial and offered a choice: give up magic or venture into the perilous lands of the ice warriors to aid them on a quest.

Without hesitation, she chooses the quest, only to discover she’s not meant to act as merely a protector.

She’s intended to be an ice lord’s bride.

The last thing Lord Rhyme wants is a bride, and certainly not a treacherous mage. There’s a reason they were outlawed from the ice lands, after all. But Rhyme has a demon to fight. The women of his clan have gone missing, and it appears the only way to win them back is by offering a sacrifice: a mage bride.

Rhyme wants no part of the deception. But he can’t turn his back on his clan.

Burdened with secrets and their mutual distrust, Phera and Rhyme must put aside their differences—and their budding attraction toward one another—to find the missing women.

The truth they uncover is far darker than either could have imagined.

This standalone romantasy is perfect for readers in search of a fast-paced, epic adventure with swoony romance, intriguing mystery, loyal friendships and unique magic.

His hand rested on my shoulder, turning me toward him. I let the curtain of my hair fall between us, unwilling to let him see my soul. But his fingertips grazed my cheek as he pushed my curls back and tilted my face toward his. “This is my choice. I would do whatever it takes to protect my people. At all costs. It is more than my sworn duty, it is in my blood. It’s who I am.” 

“Then we are the same,” I breathed. “Why do you think I became a mage? Magic has a cost, a demand, and one can ignore it and ask for it to be taken away. Or one can step into their calling.” 

His thumb brushed over my shoulder. “Then I am grateful you answered the call.” 

A delicious tension hovered between us, as sweet as sugar, and I wanted to lean forward and taste what he might offer. 

But a hardness came over his eyes and Rhyme dropped his hand and turned back to the map. When he spoke, his voice was harsh. “Phera, I met with the council and explained what you’d seen. They agreed to send a group of hunters to search for this monster and its lair.”

So soon? I’d barely found a useable clue and they already wanted to rush into the wild. “Will you be joining the hunters?” 

“You and me, Lessie and Isak, yes, we’ll all go. Now that you’ve provided a landmark, I’ll be able to guide the hunters. It’s a three-day journey by yak. I must prepare. And Phera, the council agreed to move up the ceremony. We marry tomorrow.” 

I felt as though I’d been punched in the stomach. Just when I was warming to him, this blow came. Tomorrow. So soon. There was no time for Lessie and me to plan and prepare. We were out of time.
