The most powerful magic is love.
Visions of a mysterious and gorgeous stranger plague Jilian Stewart. She's sure they're brought on by the stress of her mother's deadly paralysis. But when the stranger appears, clasps her to his chest and yanks her from Scotland into a magical battle, she finds herself ensnared in a fantasy otherworld—trapped by treachery and family secrets and opposing the one man who can make everything right.
Prince Alvarr, her sexy abductor, offers a cure for her dying mother, but won't send Jilian home with it until she helps him destroy the evil mage threatening his people—with mystical powers she never knew she had.
