She’s a grouchy loner. He’s a hardworking traveler. Fate, it seems, has a sense of humour.
When a mysterious traveller turns up at Lilian’s doorstep, she thinks that he’s just another person trying to take something from her. It turns out Davien has a lot to give.
But as he gets more and more enmeshed in the danger that surrounds her, the fear that something horrible will happen to him becomes more real. With the Sheriff breathing down her neck, wild gangs attacking, and the looming ghost of her father ripe in her memories, Lilian knows that her life is no place for anyone she cares about.
Now that she’s had a taste of happiness, she has to choose between selfishness or giving up the ones she loves forever.
