An epic new fantasy romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author C. L. Wilson
After three long years of war, starkly handsome Wynter Atrialan will have his vengeance on Summerlea's king by taking one of the man's beautiful, beloved daughters as his bride. But though peace is finally at hand, Wynter's battle with the Ice Heart, the dread power he embraced to avenge his brother's death, rages on.
Khamsin Coruscate, Princess of Summerlea and summoner of Storms, has spent her life exiled to the shadows of her father's palace. Reviled by her father, marriage to Wintercraig's icy king was supposed to be a terrible punishment, but instead offers Kham her first taste of freedom—and her first taste of overwhelming passion.
As fierce, indomitable Wynter weathers even Khamsin's wildest storms, surprising her with a tenderness she never expected, Kham wants more than Wynter's passion—she yearns for his love. But the power of the Ice Heart is growing, dangerous forces are gathering, and a devastating betrayal puts Khamsin and Wynter to the ultimate test.
Wilson (Crown of Crystal Flame) pulls out all the stops in her long-awaited return to epic romantic fantasy, with plenty of steamy sensuality and riveting action. Weather mage and warrior Khamsin Coruscate is the youngest daughter of King Verdan IV of Summerlea. After accidentally killing her mother, Kham is exiled from the kingdom. She cherishes stolen visits with her four older siblings, especially her only brother, Falcon. When Falcon's perfidy leads to Summerlea's loss in a war with Wynter Atrialan, king of neighboring Wintercraig, Wynter comes to collect his due one of King Verdan's daughters. Verdan recalls his youngest daughter and promptly sends her off with Wynter, consigning her, he thinks, to a death sentence. But Kham and Wynter have other plans. Can their love survive the enmity between their two kingdoms, Wynter's darkest secret, and the threat of betrayal? Bursting with subtle political intrigue and vivid details, the beautifully constructed world comes to life, offering a glimpse into the emotional landscape of two rather broken individuals.
