Villi grew up knowing that his people, the Ligaru, were feared by the Norlanians on the other side of the Issizlik Mountains. He wouldn’t care about that, except that his people have few females of their own. Unlike their Norlanian counterparts, the Ligaru don’t care about the females’ inability to breed. They only care that every female is with her soul mate.
During a mission to Kyvern City to destroy the soul-walk machine, Villi finds himself entranced with a scent in the building, recognizing it as the scent of his own soul mate. After his job is done, he leaves his people and locates the female, planning to prove to her that he’s no monster under the bed, but rather a male worthy of being her soul mate and loving her for the rest of his life.
Pilar Rotahn is a no-nonsense female who takes great pride in her catering business and teaching job at the culinary academy in Kyvern City. Although she would never admit it out loud, she doesn’t like coming home to an empty house each night or waking up alone. But as a sterile Norlanian female, she knows that no male will ever go on the soul-walk and dream about her.
One night, she’s woken by a strange male in her bedroom. He’s the sexiest male she’s ever seen, even with his fangs, and when he offers to take her to his home on the other side of the forbidden mountain, she throws caution to the wind and goes with him. Is the life that Villi offers too good to be true, or will Pilar find everything she ever dreamed of on the other side of the mountain?
