The mystic Isle of Aelynn slowly gravitates toward the same disastrous fate as revolutionary Europe-its survival depends on returning an elusive treasure... With her home torn by the loss of their spiritual leader, Lissandra Olympus, the heir apparent, seeks the help of the one man who might save them- renegade warrior Murdoch LeDroit. But Murdoch has turned his back on those who feared his extraordinary psychic powers and rejected him. Besides, reigniting the combustible passion between him and Lissandra would only expose her to the dangerous forces that shadow him. But if they want to protect Aelynn from destruction and chaos, they must work together to retrieve the magical key to its survival-the Chalice of Plenty. Only then can Murdoch ever hope to become the ruler Aelynn needs-and only then if Lissandra agrees to become his lover.
