Desperate to escape an arranged marriage to an evil magician, Rowan flees her village - and runs right into the path of a handsome stranger. When Grant comes to her aid, she takes comfort in his arms...and sees a solution to her problem. Her betrothal will be called off if she loses her virginity - and her virile protector is the perfect man to do the honor.
Determined to seduce him, Rowan traps them together in a cave, where she and Grant soon give in to their undeniable desires. But despite their growing bond, she cannot reveal her telekinetic powers or risk being persecuted as a witch.
Grant has a secret of his own - he is Prince Grantland, reluctant heir to the throne of Arandal. He's thrilled to find a woman who's interested in him, not his crown. But he and Rowan cannot hide themselves - and the truth - forever. Will their love survive once Grant discovers she's everything he's been raised to hate and fear?

Any additional comments?
I am torn on this one. It is a fantasy read and the second in a series. I was unaware I was reading the second book and now I feel like I need to backtrack to the first to get a fuller picture of the world.
I liked Rowen from the start and she is a really engaging character. Mostly I liked Grantland, well when he wasn't being bigoted jerk.
The story moves along rather quickly and a lot is crammed into a short time.
The steam is hot and heavy. A couple really steam scenes. I would have liked one more at the end.
I think if I had read this as part of the series I would have understood more and really liked the story.It may have helped to have been in a fantasy mood as well.
Overall good story but not really what I was craving at the moment.
