Kayla Dunsmore has had her share of heartache. Her husband turned out to be an abusive jerk, she survived cancer, and her family has been ripped from her life by a tragic accident. Now, she’s just tired of fighting to survive and is ready for a stroke of good luck. Unfortunately, it’s not to be. The last straw comes when, once again, the doctor tells her the grim news: the cancer is back. Not only is it back, but it will take a radical treatment for any hope of survival.
Zarth, an advisor to the goddess Freya, is by himself, the way he likes it. His kind, the Phooka, don’t do well in numbers. But the moment he sees Kayla, Zarth doesn’t want to be alone anymore. And that’s a problem because, according to Freya, the only way to save her is to take her to the planet Amethyst Flames.
The planet is fraught with danger for Kayla, and to compound the issue, Freya tells them that Zarth must share Kayla with his brother Tirian.
Can Kayla handle the transition to a new planet and a new lifestyle? Can Zarth and Tirian learn to share? Or will they burn up in Amethyst Flames?
