To protect her people from their goddess’s wrath, Princess Candra must remain locked inside a tower for seven long years. The only other living being in the tower with her is a winged, fanged beast: a warrior named Nemeth. He’s terrifying, cruel, and disturbingly magnetic. Candra should kill him for his supplies, but she’s desperate for his company—and his touch. When their tenure hits an unexpected snag, Candra and Nemeth are forced to make a difficult choice to face an outside world they no longer recognize.
