"Lissandra Olympus, the daughter of Aelynn's late spiritual leader, is convinced that only renegade outcast Murdoch LeDroit can save her people. But Murdoch refuses to return to those who exiled him years ago, as their fear of his extraordinary, uncontrollable psychic powers is well founded. He also resists reigniting the combustible passion that has always existed between him and Lissandra, for it would only expose her to his destructive forces. But in a world where magic conspires to unite them, Lissandra and Murdoch cannot long deny their sexually charged energy. As they search for the long-lost Chalice of Plenty, which is essential to Aelynn's survival, Lissandra begins to realize that it may be her healing skills that Murdoch most needs-- and his protectiveness that she most desires. Perhaps together they can learn to focus his power until he becomes the perfect ruler of Aelynn. But will Lissandra consent to remain by his side, ever his co-ruler, his lover, his wife?" -- p.  of cover.
