Han is a former streetlord and was once leader of a gang called the Raggers. Raisa is the princess heir of her mother's queendom. But they both have their own problems. Han and his friend Dancer are hunting and come across 3 young wizards who started a wizard fire in the forest. Dancer confronts them and demands that they leave, and Han threatens them until the leading wizard, Micah Bayar, hands over his amulet. What can the amulet do? He did act as if it was important. Does it have anything to do with his silver cuffs on his wrists that he can never get off?
Meanwhile, Raisa's family is making arrangements for her marriage even though she is only a teenager, but she is in love with high wizard's son, Micah, and the guard's captain's son, Amon, to both of which marriage is forbidden. Suddenly Han's and Raisa's paths cross, and their lives will never be the same again. Will Raisa be forced into an unwanted marriage? Will Han ever find out where his cuffs and the amulet came from? You'll just have to read it to find out.
This lengthy book is part of a series and is a Lone Star book of 2010. I hope you enjoy it!
