A dream reborn, or a nightmare reawakened... Cedric is haunted every waking moment by memories of his first wife's brutal murder at the hands of marauding Daults but he must use the ashes of his life to bury the past and move on in hopes of regaining his wounded reputation in court. The first step: honor his king by taking a bride. Cedric isn't fool enough to believe he'll ever find love again. Bridget had plans to flee to a sect of Runic healers. Before she could set the plan in motion, her abusive father sells her into an arranged marriage to a Centeris lord. Lord Cedric is far different from any man she has ever known; he is kind, gentle...and he has lost heart. If ever a man needed her healing powers, it was Cedric. But convincing him he deserves to be whole will take time-time she may not have.
