This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1898 edition. Excerpt: ... equal bulk and in multitude the same; among Ailell's kine, however, was an especial bull which indeed had been calf of one of Meave's cows (his name also being "the White-horned "), but he deemed it unbecoming to be under petticoat-rule, and so had departed and taken his place among the king's cattle.' And now, because among her kine she had not a bull of his size, in Meave's esteem it was as though she owned no penny's worth of stock. Then it was that Meave saw Mac Roth the herald draw nigh, and the queen required of him that he should find out where, in any province of Ireland's provinces, might be a bull altogether similar to him aforesaid.

The greatest journeys in life are often those taken in silence, with no one else watching. They are the journeys of self-discovery, when one learns one’s true history and destiny. They are the times when self-discipline must trump the massive desire to act in a manner that offers a short term benefit… but a long term disaster. Adam long knew he faced such a journey. He didn’t know how he’d ever begin; fate seemed stacked against him. And yet he knew the stakes, knew that his failure — or his discovery — could doom him and those he loves most. And then… fate smiled on him. For just a few brief moments, the window opened, and he commenced that journey. He—and the world—would never be the same.

Destiny Jones is a princess with a bad attitude. She doesn’t play nice with others, she doesn’t dress up in pretty clothes, and she has absolutely zero interest in behaving like a lady. Especially when she’s so close to catching the people who tried to have her killed. Oh, and kidnapped her mother, queen of the planet Alera. Destiny’s sex-starved body, and it’s annoying Aleran Ardor, might kill her if her enemies don’t find her first. Vennix was trained to hunt and to kill from the shadows. After years of serving in the Hive wars as an elite member of the Coalition’s Shadow Unit, he returned home to fight for the one thing he believes in, honor.

His body awakened for her. And if his new mate thinks Nix will stand idly by as she suffers without his skillful lover’s touch, she is very, very mistaken… Ardor or not, she’s hunting a killer. Nix is going all protective, alpha male, claiming she’s his mate just because she had a few mind-blowing moments in his bed. And she’s trapped deep undercover in the most dangerous place on the planet. If anyone discovers the truth, she’ll be dead. But if she gives up now, her mother will be lost forever.
