All her life Shayna had idolized the legendary warrior responsible for unifying her planet. So when she traveled back through time to save Mikal's life it was not surprising that she found herself entranced by his virile power. The fulfillment of her mission had led her into his strong soldier's arms but Shayna wondered if she could ever truly love the man and not the myth.
When he first laid eyes on the lovely sorceress Mikal never dreamed that Shayna would breach the impregnable fortress of his heart. For years his only aim had been to bring his people to power and no woman had ever tempted him to waver from that honorable goal. So when the fiery-haired beauty invaded his hideaway and his bed he wondered if she'd cast some spell over him. Then one enchanted evening wrapped in moonlight they shared a midnight splendor that cast aside the shadows of doubt and sent their hearts soaring to the stars.
i absoluelty love this book to the point where i have it memorized but i still refuse to give it up. i dont know what it is about their story that i love so much. maybe its the sacrifiies they both have to make. shayna has always loved the mikal that is idolized in her time but when she has to go back in time she meets another mikal, a young and virl michale in his early 30's. he comes to love her and her him but he has to let shayna go back to her own time which is heart wrenching for them both. michale never marries but continues on his quest to for the world shayna now has. if she had stayed the world she had would never come to be so when she left mikals life was based on that one goal for his for shayna. he never loves nayone else he may have mistreeses for his needs but he never loves as he had for shayna and then begins the journals writing to her through centuries. she finds them but is the able to go back and save him . only four years have passed for her but 20 have passed in hsi time since she left. she also had mikals son kaz which she didnt know she was pregnant when she left. they are both up for the surprises when she goes back to take mikal before he dies and his body is never foudn at sea.
