(From the publisher):
He taught her a forbidden art...
She looked like a ragged, storm-drenched urchin, but from the moment Serena Smyth appeared on his Seattle doorstep Richard Patrick Merlin recognized the spark behind her green eyes, the wild talent barely held in check. And he knew he would help her to control her gift, despite a taboo so ancient that the reasons for its existence had been forgotten. But he never suspected that in his rebellion he would risk all he had and all he was to feel a love none of his kind had ever known.
She taught him a forbidden love...
Serena had crossed a country to find him, guided by instinct born of her determination to become a master wizard. She knew he could be her teacher - but she'd never expected the charismatic, seductive power that was Merlin's. Nor had she dreamed of the fire he ignited in her body and soul, a flame that burned even hotter than the talent she possessed but did not yet understand. Their love forbidden by an ancient law, Serena and Merlin will take a desperate gamble and travel to a long-lost world to change the history that threatens to separate them. But they risk being torn apart forever, destroyed by a cursed land... and their own fierce passions.
