After four thousand years, does she have the strength to go on? She is Nidaba-an Immortal High Witch so ancient, so legendary, that for thousands of years she has been the ultimate prize, relentlessly pursued by Dark Witches. She has eluded all who would kill her - until a mother's grief made her reckless and she was captured by a madman. After endless physical and mental torment, she escaped, but her captivity has damaged her spirit as well as her body. And though the wounds to her body have healed, the scars on her mind and soul remain... After four thousand years, her destiny has finally found her... Nathan King now has the peace he craved in the life he created for himself-until the day he sees her again. Can it really be Nidaba-the love he thought lost to him so many centuries ago? But the woman he finds is not the fierce, proud girl of his cherished memories-now her eyes are haunted by a pain so deep, and a hatred so bitter it divides them still. But if he is to understand the source of her anquish and reclaim the passion that was once theirs, he must face the truth that the evil that tore them apart once again stands between them and their chance at forever...
