What's a Princess to do when the man Fate has chosen for her denies her?
As Princess of Fey, Neiva has led a privileged life. When she sees her in the Waters of Fate, she is shocked at who Fate has paired her with. When he refuses her again and again, her shock quickly turns to anger.
Rhys has been friends with the King of Fey for centuries. Surely Fate would not be so cruel as to mate him with his friend's daughter? Never mind that he hears the Song of Souls when she is near - she has mistaken the situation and he must let her down gently.
After yet another denial from Rhys, Neiva decides it's time to move on. She leaves the Fey Realm and goes to the human world - the world of her mother - determined to find some semblance of happiness. Rhys is given the duty of watching over her while she is there - a task that drives him mad with desire and frustration. But danger has followed Neiva there. Now she is not only in danger of losing her heart, but also her life.
