White Fells, book III in the Faery Faith Series
Books in the Faery Faith Series:
A formidable warrior of the Tuatha De Danann, Boyden is one of the few born of the idir, the between. With the power to summon the bringer of death in the form of a fey wind, he could kill all living creatures — including an invader seeking vengeance for a wrongful death — but he vows to find another way.
Princess Scota, a confident warrior princess, does not believe in anything fey…until she meets her people's latest captive, a proud male whose defiant nature she cannot tame and, in a twist of fate, becomes captive instead of captor.
Across wind-scored hills and misty woodlands, to the realm of the fey below, theirs is a battle of determination and distrust that, once breached, erupts into a hot and eternal passion. A passion now susceptible to a needful and terrible fey claiming. In a land covered in blood, they battle for a truce between their warring people, one that will threaten their lives and newfound love. In a future offering little choice, Scota knows the survival of their love depends on Boyden learning to submit … willingly.
In the dimming light of a long hard day, Boyden examined the bloody gash on his thumb. Eyes narrowing to slits of pale gray, he glared silent retribution at the sharp ridge of the moss-dappled boulder. Better suited for a passage grave, he was trying to move it out of the blind druidess’s ever-expanding garden without toppling the prolific growth of stunted hawthorns. To his right, the gaping ruins of a stone wall sloped down an emerald knoll and curved into oak trees. Horses stood quietly grazing on three separate hills in the distance, their tails swishing lazily in tranquility. Bare from the waist up, sweat and dirt covered every inch of him with the day near ending and the boulder not budging. He looked at his bloody palm and thought, enough for today.
Hiking himself out of the rocky ditch he spent the day digging, he flipped a tawny plait back over his shoulder. Tomorrow he would borrow a horse from one of the farmers and pitch the animal’s might against the rock. No task was unconquerable for a warrior of the Tuatha Dé Danann.
Sucking his throbbing thumb, he walked into the cool shadows of the nearest oak and bent at the waist to avoid several low hanging branches. He squatted over a black root. Moving his bronze dagger aside, he grabbed the leather pouch, and brought the lip to his mouth. The water tasted cool and he finished the remainder in two mouthfuls. Tossing the empty pouch aside, he looked down at his calloused hands. They were large, the fingers blunt, and the nails dirty with work from the day. He blew air out of his lungs, his hands fisting. At twenty-five summers, he could not shake the embrace of darkness and death clinging to him since birth. He detested it, detested the way it forced him to remain apart. Shifting around, he pressed his bare back against the tree trunk and found a comfortable position. For the moment, he was too exhausted to think or care and with a heavy sigh he closed his eyes and slipped swiftly into a deep sleep.
Little by little, the nightmare crept once more upon him …
