Samantha very much dislikes arrogant men and takes every opportunity to put them in their place. The rogue pirate, Jake Belconnen, is no exception. But when circumstances place them in close proximity on his ship for several weeks, she finds it harder to maintain her dislike.
The last thing Jake needs is a passenger on his cargo ship. When that passenger turns out to be Samantha, the most obnoxious woman he has ever met, a woman who is determined to think the worst of him, sparks fly.
When Samantha’s life is placed in peril and it becomes a race against time to save her, Jake soon realises he has another fight on his hands – his growing affection for this spitfire. Torn between the only life he has ever known and his love for this woman, he must make the biggest decision of his life …. but would it be the right one.
The Ayons have mysteriously retreated from a far-reaching southern offensive, ordered back by their newly crowned king.
In the aftermath of this battle, Angora is washed up on the shore of a foreign land, bruised and battered, determined to keep her past a secret from all. Rescued from slavers, yet immediately falling prey to others, she is thrust into a war not her own.
Proclaimed one of twelve legendary mages, Angora is charged with protecting the innocent with magic beyond her imagination.
But a dark future awaits her and her friends as the Ayon threat begins to swell once more in the north.
Three years since the last of the twelve legendary mages were revealed, the politics of war have shifted. Determined to try for unity, King Samian reaches out to the Ronnesians with an offer of marriage, a bloodless end to the war and a vision for a peaceful future. Yet Queen Sorcha is wary of deception.
While politics governs the leaders, others are moving in secret to deal the Ayons a fatal blow, in the hope of tipping the balance permanently in the Ronnesians' favor.
But instead of faltering, the Ayons swiftly retaliate and the first wave comes crashing down. As the northern defences strain and begin to buckle under the force of the crimson army, the Ronnesian mages are forced to break the unwritten rule to save their empire from destruction.
Unable to persuade her former companions to give up their quest to reclaim her allegiance, Angora has been forced to turn against them and fight for her freedom. However, the fight has proven to be a costly one and Angora has fallen to her death in a deep ravine.
In the wake of her demise, both empires are momentarily subdued, mourning the loss of a friend and queen.
However, driven by the belief that Angora may have survived, the Ronnesians launch an attack on the Ayon capital of Delseroy in an attempt to free her from the Ayons' clutches. But their attack does not go according to plan, setting in motion a series of events that could spell their doom.
