Synopsis

Tsura is a Chuvani, and with that comes great power…

Desperate to escape the memories that haunt her, Tsura Harris returns to Jamestown, the very place her mother forbade her to go. A gifted Chuvani, Tsura has sworn off all magick, thus making her vulnerable to the Renoldi clan, who wish to kill her and take the pendant that is the key to her power.

Red Wolf is hell-bent on living his life on the sea, until he runs into Tsura on the docks. His pride wounded from her rejection years before, he hoped to never see her again. But when the evil Corsair, Romulus Black, demands to know where she is, Red Wolf must protect her, as is his duty.

But is duty and honor his only reason, or does Red Wolf still carry a flame of love in his heart? And will Tsura finally discover her destiny?

PROLOGUE

Willow Creek, Colorado, 1890 


Nora stared at the dilapidated trunk next to the fireplace. She hadn’t looked at it after pa died last year. The old wood turned up at the edges, warped from the many times they’d traveled across the country. Pa was resigned to saving Nora from herself, which hadn’t done either of them any good. As a gifted child she’d not been able to turn away from someone in need no matter the idle threats her father issued.
      She closed her eyes, seeing him now. The too-short brown slacks he wore, his weathered shirt, stained and in need of repair. No smile lifted his lips, or creased the skin around the eyes. His face stiff as stone, rigid, and unmoving. Within the blue depths surrounded by black lashes lay disappointment.
      Nora shuddered. Even now, months later, she could not see him without the cloud of disdain he’d placed around himself. The anger he’d cast upon her so many times. He’d been wrong. He’d seen her only as the rest of the world had… a threat.
      The house was quiet. Morning Star napped in the small bed in the corner of the room, and Hawk was outside doing chores. She inhaled and stepped toward the trunk. Pa used the heavy crate for his clothes and whatever else had needed storing. She never really cared what was inside and had forgotten all about it until Hawk brought it in from the barn last week. He thought she might want it in the house. She wasn’t so sure. The trunk held distant and unsettling memories of the life she led with her father, of resentment and hate… of a little girl who longed to be loved.
      Her stomach turned. She needed to face the past sooner or later, and what could be inside but a few of Pa’s things? She stared at the trunk once more as she feasted on her bottom lip. Pa wasn’t a saint. He sure as hell didn’t leave her fond memories of him. In fact almost all of her memories were tainted with the sloshes of whiskey, dreadful words thrown her way, and him passed out across the sofa. She had to search the recesses of her mind to draw any hint of the father who raised her. And even then, her mind foggy, she wasn’t sure if it was a dream she’d had or the real thing.
      She took another step. Her toes touched the side of the trunk. She glanced behind her to where Morning Star slept.
      “To hell with it.”
      She bent, flung open the lid, and knocked it against the stone wall that made up the fireplace. She winced and waited. No cry. No small feet running across the floor toward her.
      She sighed and stared down at a pair of folded denims and a woolen blanket. She pulled out the blanket, not the least bit surprised to see two bottles of whiskey hidden beneath. She rescued them from the musty confines of the trunk and set them on the floor beside her. Next she pulled out Pa’s denims and stared at the bottom of the trunk. There was nothing else left and yet the trunk seemed so much larger on the outside than what it appeared to be inside.
      She peeked at the contents beside her and then inside the trunk again. Standing, she placed her left leg up against the trunk and took a mental note that it came to just below her knee. She lifted her skirt to place her foot inside the empty trunk. In doing so, she lost her balance and fell into the wooden box. The timber snapped, breaking beneath her, and dropped her foot another three inches.
      She stared at the bits of broken wood. Another compartment was concealed beneath. She slowly pulled her leg out and knelt. She pushed her insecurities aside and reached her hand past the broken wood to explore the space. She felt some sort of fabric.
      She withdrew her hand and stared at the small hole. What was underneath? Without further hesitation, she pulled the wooden board up and snapped it from the edges of the trunk. Placing the broken board to the side, she peered into the trunk once more. Nestled on the bottom was a blue blanket wrapped around something hard. She pulled it out and carefully unraveled the cloth to reveal a rectangular jewelry box. Nora had never seen anything as beautiful as this handmade piece. The side bore intricately carved flowers and on top a sparrow etched into the wood. She lifted the lid and found a book, a ledger, which fit perfectly inside. She plucked it from the confines of the box. The cover was fashioned out of deer hide. She inspected the binding which was held together with leather strips. She ran her fingertips along the worn book, and thumbed through the yellow pages with what appeared to be feminine handwriting. She turned to the beginning of the book and gasped. It was a diary...

Fate has brought them together, but will a promise tear them apart?
