No one knows how Calista is destined to change the kingdoms, but there is one that does. He not only craves Calista’s power, but her body as well, and his goal is to steal her power, make her his Dark Queen, and take over the Land of the Fae.
Will the evil succeed in claiming Calista’s soul? Or will the two men that fight for her heart save her from despair, and help her fulfill her destiny to become what she was meant to be.
“Ryder, I don’t know how or why it is happening so fast, but my heart does feel like it belongs to you, and when I saw you tonight, I felt it. The connection is there, and I see it now, but what if it isn’t real?” I pull away from him to walk closer to the crystal blue water of the lake.
He looks at me bewildered. “Why wouldn’t it be real? It feels real to me,” he says while making his way towards me. He’s coming closer and all I want to do is run into his arms and feel his body surround mine. That is what my body is telling me, but how do I find out if that’s what my heart truly feels.
I shrug and say flatly, “I just think we might feel this way because of the Prophecy.” He wraps me in his arms again and tilts my chin up so my eyes settle on his. His eyes look worried and the frown marring his face clearly shows the tension in the lines around his features.
Ryder shakes his head and lets out an exasperated breath, “Why are you trying to fight this, Calista? Whatever we feel is between me and you. No Prophecy or any amount of magic is going to change the way I feel in my heart.” He cups my face with both hands and brings his face closer to mine to where our foreheads are tenderly touching. He breathes lightly against my face and whispers softly, “My heart tells me this is real, and if we can’t believe in our own hearts, then what can we believe in?”
