When she came of age, Ty Peirson’s life was turned upside down. She found out her long-absent mother was Queen of Summer, one of the most powerful fae in existence. Instead of heading off to college, Ty was swept off to her mother’s court, to learn the way of the uncanny half of her family tree.
When caught in a sudden storm shower with the mysterious fae, Hob. Ty witnesses the mistreatment of a mortal servant, a man who’s body is being changed by his time and status in this world. Feeling for him, she negotiates a wager with his owner but she must risk herself in the challenge.
Will she succeed and win possession of her prize? Will she be forced to offer herself up in forfeiture? What will be the fate of this poor mortal?
