Stella Brighton, a mom and recent widow, is finally holding her shattered life together. But the emotional duct tape she used is brutally ripped off when she inadvertently enters a realm where myth and magic are real. Despite a soul-deep connection with Kai, a mesmerizing warrior with a sinister smile, Stella fights to return to her daughter and the world she knew with her deceased husband.
Recovering from his own emotional wounds, Kai finds solace—and himself—as he surrenders to his bond with the gutsy human female who has stumbled upon his world. Unable to travel between realms, Kai vows to return Stella to her world, even though it means losing her. But when fate doles out a death sentence for Stella, Kai learns that the only way to save her is through an unbearable sacrifice.
