Still, there are no limits to how far the wealthy, bitter exile will go to win her exquisite hand ? though owning Emma's body, but not her love, will do nothing to fill the empty spaces in his heart.But Nikolas's destiny awaits him elsewhere, as passion's magic transports him to a different place ? a land of splendor and romantic dreams. For only there can he experience true ecstasy in one remarkable woman's tender touch ? achingly familiar yet gloriously new ? and learn, at last, to love.
