Horrified and terrified hearing she was being forced to marry a man called The Black Warlock, Trista was determined not to cower or let him brow beat her. When she first sees him she admits she finds him terrible attractive and wondered why a man so fair and with such bright blue eyes was named so darkly. It didn’t take her long to find out why and it frightened her. However, when he treats her with tender consideration, she hastily changes her mind about the terrifying stories she’d heard. She decided all the whispers couldn’t be true. Only a short time later she was swiftly disabused of the idea when she’d defied him and he punished her. She vowed never to forgive him until the fateful day he had been injured and she could no longer deny she loved him. However, would her love survive or was the happiness doomed.
Though he wasn’t anywhere near ready to wed, Rieph didn’t have a choice, but he decided once he set eyes on his bonny bride that it might not be so bad after all. Once they were wed, he quickly changed his mind though, the woman drove him to distraction. She not only refused to obey him, she insults him at every turn and also doesn’t hesitate lying to him. He would regret to the day he treating her so callously and he could only be eternally grateful when she finally forgave him for abusing her. Now though because of enemies wanting to destroy him, he had to protect her life at all costs. Could he keep her safe or was he destined to lose the most precious gift he owned. For a little while he was given a taste of heaven before it was cruelly snatched away from him.
Can Rieph tame his defiant wife? Can he keep her safe? But the question burning his soul was would she ever give him her heart and love him?
