When day and night meet
at the forge of souls,
the midnight sun will
bring mixed blessings.
The one who is two,
shall lose and gain
One will be given
their hearts desire,
shall be torn asunder.
There is a saying among the old ones, “If you dream of a mare, a MacLeod is sure to be near.”
Rohanna MacLeod grew up listening to her grandmother’s stories of her family and the old country, the myths and legends of the Fae becoming dearer to her with each loss in her young life.
True to her family name, Rohanna carries the MacLeod gift with horses. With single minded determination, she denies herself everything else that life offers in order to keep what is hers, to keep and preserve the family farm from an abusive stepmother she abhors.
Everything changes when she runs into trouble on the way to a horse show. Her prize gelding throws a shoe and risks laming if she can’t find a farrier on short notice. A chance offer and a plain business card sends her to the Ladysmith, a farrier and blacksmith with a mysterious past. Alexandria Strider is drawn into Rohanna’s world. Caught between new bonds and old oaths, Alex holds the key to Rohanna’s past and an unrealized destiny, if she can find the strength to do what is necessary.
Sometimes stories are more than myth and legend. What has been forgotten cannot be suppressed, and nightmares can come alive in your dreams. Rohanna has lived her entire life trying to escape her nightmares, now one has become her closest ally and lover, and just possibly, the only thing that can save her.
