Kheelan Mattero, most trusted warrior of a First Earth prince in exile, is sent to gift Cara for rescuing the prince's son in a brave and selfless move that could have resulted in her own death. But instead, Kheelan finds his own giftâthe mate he has searched two planets and a lifetime for. While the hunger rages through him for the pixie-ish Cara, her need must join with his, must equal his, or the bonding will not happen. Now he has to make Cara see that some wishes are worth reaching forâ¦that some wishes can come true.
