Once upon a time, iron kept the fae from wandering the sunlit realm. But over the millennia, iron gave way to steel, and now the fae are unbound…
Yearning to be free, Olette has fled the idleness and illusions of the fae court to hide in the sunlit realm of humans. When the dark warriors of the Wild Hunt find her—and they will, because the black-winged shadows always find their prey—she will face the fae queen’s wrath. But until the hunters come and clip her sylfana wings, she will seize this moment to indulge the real emotions of world beyond the walls she’s always known.
After a chance encounter with a seductively handsome stranger, Olette longs to embrace the earthly passions within her, if only for one night. Vaile’s dark eyes might see through her disguise and his tantalizing touch could make her forget her vow to keep running as long as she can.
Because it seems there are deeper dangers than she knew. In the ages since the end of the Iron Wars, the Court of the Steel-Born Fae has grown restless, the queen’s power to hold them within wearing thin, and the sunlit realm has forgotten the old charms that once kept the oblivious human folk safe from the shadows.
Olette might risk even her freedom for Vaile’s love, but when the Wild Hunt closes in, she has to wonder: has she fallen for a man—or beautiful lie?
