Mel knows the price of secrets.

They cost her everything. Her marriage. Her family. Her happiness. Now, she lives a simple, isolated life in the mountains, far from the troubles of Cantheon. But trouble, it seems, has a way of finding her.

She never should have helped hide the man with mixed blood from the Order, especially when it puts her in the crosshairs of the vengeful town steward and rips apart the life she fought for in Viviers.

In a last-ditch effort to warn her newfound friends and untangle herself from their conflict, her life is derailed when she’s forced onto a ship with the one man she never dared to confront again. Rhodric.

The man she still yearns for.

The man she walked out on six years ago in the middle of the night.

In this action-packed tale, Mel is torn between her loyalties to Rayelle and Paladin (The Blessing Giver), the unexplainable forces sparking within her, and her desperation to stay far, far away from her former lover and the dark secret they share.

Return to the Passage Realm for this enthralling slow-burn, second-chance fantasy romance. The Blessing Giver series continues to deliver an irresistible blend of passion and adventure that will keep you turning pages long into the night.
