Renege on a deal with a Dragon Lord, and become part of his hoard.
It wasn't easy raising three girls with Fae blood in the Outlands. If Kailigh wasn't busy chasing them out of the local taverns, she was busy teaching them to hunt, shoot and kill—to fight against flesh traffickers from the Cities, prowling town for girls to send to rich patrons.
And now, with the youngest shot and fighting for her life, Kailigh has no choice but to petition for the help of the Dragon Lord Maddugh, King of Coal and Mountain.
Only he's no fool—he knows right away Kai isn't quite human. And three girls of courting age? He's not about to let them slip through his fingers when his men are wanting for mates with even a drop of magical blood. So she'll have to strike a bargain. He'll save her daughter's life, and help her hunt the man responsible, but he has a price.
A price he demands Kailigh pay in flesh.
