The Great Sanctuary of Ceres is at a crossroads.
The barrier is failing, vampires are hunting innocent Aura, and the Ruling Council is in shambles. It is now up to the High Magistrate, Disrayan Centaurus, to diffuse the tension that threatens to implode everything the Aura ever stood for. However, the solution to her problems is also the man she swore never to trust again.
Maclovis Andromeda has been working undercover with vampires for years, forced to leave behind everything and everyone he held dear. Mack wants nothing more than to show Disrayan that he is still the man she fell for, but until his assignment is complete, he can't risk being outed, even if that means losing Disrayan all over again.
The personal and the professional collide in this epic tale of myth, politics, and legendary love.
