Either she cures the Prince, or she is sold in marriage to a warrior she doesn't love….
Brilliant scientist Surah, the half-human daughter of a royal concubine, endured the scorn of the gargoyle court growing up. She doesn't care- the only warrior who matters is Malin, and she will cure his genetic disease if it kills her.
It very well may. Enemies at court threaten her life to stop her research- enemies who don't want Prince Malin to reclaim his throne, or to see her as his mate and Princess. If she fails, he will lose his immortality and be trapped in human form forever… and die.
If she fails, her half-brother will sell her in marriage to the highest bidding warrior. But Malin will kill any warrior in court, winged or no, to prevent them from laying claim to his mate. Especially when she conceives his baby—the true Heir to the gargoyle throne.
