An inherited curse has kept depressed innkeeper Simone Bristol bound to a rundown beach motel for the past six years. Just when she has a chance to break free of it, some visiting guests check in and reset the curse's clock. They may have foiled her getaway, but it turns out one of those guests could be her respite.
Heath Horan, Sídhe prince and leader of a crew of fairy, motorcycle-riding assassins, claims she's his fated mate. Unfortunately, he also claims that her mother was a runaway from the fairy realm and that Queen Rhiannon - his mother - would love to see both women dead. It seems Simone has walked from one curse into another.
She may be able to get used to being the main squeeze of a sword-wielding prince in leather, but she's not so sure she's cut out to be an assassin, too. Unfortunately, if she wants to stay alive long enough to break her curse and help Heath subdue unrest in his realm caused by his mother's antics, she might have to be.
