Nigel wants no part in his demon mother’s war against the Fae. Hoping to cash in on a favor and hide out until it’s over, he ventures deep into the forest in search of the Faerie Queen’s son. Lost and frustrated, he encounters an Elemental who he hopes will help him.
Dawn has two days to get her fire magic under control before she will be tested for the Conclave. This once-in-a-millennia competition will pit the most powerful Elementals against each other in a tournament to determine who will earn the title of Guardian of the Elementals.
Nigel makes a deal with Dawn. He’ll help her get her fire magic back if she leads him to the Fae Court. But the last thing Dawn should be doing is bringing a demon to a secret Fae ritual. If Nigel learns the true power of the Fae, he could use that knowledge against them. As sparks fly between Dawn and Nigel, the two must decide where their loyalties lie and what price they are willing to pay for falling in love with the enemy.

Eve doesn’t believe in magic or fate. But, when her carefully ordered life begins to unravel, she decides to take a chance and follow her recurring dream of the legendary Faerie Queen to Lydbury Manor, her uncle's family estate in England. Maybe spending the Christmas holiday with her aunt and uncle will help her sort out her future and solve a family mystery.
As a member of the Fae High Court, Liam should be fighting on the front lines with his cousins, not cooped up in Lydbury Manor masquerading as a human and playing secretary to an elderly professor. But he still hasn’t completed his mission, and he’s running out of time. The Wild Hunt will ride again at the winter solstice unless he can find and destroy the artifact that will stop the spirit of Lord Edric from laying waste to the remaining Fae.
Forced to work together, and failing to fight their mutual attraction, Liam and Eve are caught between deadly Fae laws and the Spirit of a madman. Survival will mean surrendering control and rediscovering strength.

Meanwhile, Liam has a new role on the Faerie Queen's Court, one that takes him away from his mate for days at a time. Worrying over Eve's safety distracts him from his responsibilities. The Faerie Queen has decreed that it's time for the Fae Factions to rebuild after the war with Edric, and the first order of business is reproduction. But any child Liam has with Eve would be human, not Fae. Breaking that to Eve isn't going to be easy.
Faced with difficult decisions and new challenges, Liam and Eve must learn to trust each other and work together if they want to remain paired as life mates.
