The Rancher's Daughter
Once a hunter of renegade wizards, Silas Vendine now finds himself on the wrong side of the mages' law with his illegal marriage to Lainie, who has her own forbidden and supposedly impossible magical powers. On the run from the law, Silas and Lainie are scraping by on what Lainie wins at cards and whatever odd jobs Silas can get from people who need his skills and don't ask too many questions.
When Lainie's luck with the cards turns sour, they are led to a meeting with one of the richest ranchers in the Wildings. Brin Coltor wants Silas and Lainie to undertake a dangerous mission into A'ayimat territory for him, and they can't afford to turn him down. But Coltor is hiding a few secrets of his own, that lead Silas and Lainie right into the trouble they've been trying to avoid.
