As Ilea steps farther into her role as the law of the Demesne, anxious speculation about Sebastien and his next move flourishes. Tensions build, as passion sizzles at long-awaited Matings and Kya's romantic dream comes true when Meniari asks her to attend one with him. It's a fresh beginning for a warrior with a past and a female hiding a gentle heart behind a tough persona.
Meanwhile, the Father of the Demesnes is having a grand time in Paris, but intelligence soon arrives from the spy he left behind. Infuriated by what he learns, he embarks on a rage-driven plan to force a brutal wedge between the Sanctum and the Saint Rushton Demesne forever, one that will jeopardize Iridea and her unborn child.
A vampiress on the run from the Parisian Demesne risks everything to find Micah Odera in Scotland, shattering his newfound peace with a strange tale of barbaric punishment, an act of treason that saved her life, a nefarious scheme and Circe's dangerous fascination with Sebastien. Seeking the protection of the Sanctum, she reveals all she knows to Miriel and Andrieu, forcing the haven into a partnership with the Saint Rushton Demesne.
A desperately precarious plan takes shape, as Xavier struggles with Ilea's demand that he keep a terrible secret for her. If he breaks his vow, the betrayal may cost him her love. If he keeps his word, she may die. Ultimately, Ilea and Iridea will have a single chance to do what only they can – bring Sebastien to meet fate.
