The Claiming of the Duke by Malloy dos Capeheart
The huge dark bulk of Gardenhour rose at his back…at once a blessing of family and security, and a curse of loneliness and lies…
A dangerous man with a dark and tragic past
An innocent girl with dreams of a bright future
Can Gwenyth's love drive away the shadows that lie over Max's heart, or will she pay with her life for daring to claim him as her own?
Readers of The Sand Prince will recognize the Duke, his great horse Mammoth, and his beloved Gwenyth. Finally available on this world, The Claiming of the Duke is the novel that brought the warring kingdoms of Mistra and Eriis together, and now you can read the entire novel that began Rhuun's journey through The Door.
