Sebastian has tried to forget about the woman who has ensnared him with her beauty. She is a distraction from his goal to seek revenge on his nemesis, yet he can't get her out of his mind. His only choice is to seduce her so he can get her out of his system, then focus on his mission to find a suitable partner to become bonded to.
Eden resorts to seeking out an exiled fairy for assistance and discovers the spell Lord Dallinar cast on her is going to be harder to destroy than she'd figured. She will need someone who can use black magic to dispel it. That means she'll have to deal with someone who is just as evil as the fae lord who bound her power.
