After a euphoric night, Morrigan discovers her spaceship left without her, and Ualan of Draig is claiming she's his wife. It's not exactly the story this reporter had in mind. And to make matters worse, the all-too-seductive alpha refuses to take no for an answer.
Being cursed by the gods was never so frustrating...
Prince Ualan is prepared to follow dragonshifter tradition and marry the woman revealed to him during the Breeding Festival.
