Lady Rebecca had the perfect life- until the arrival of a dark stranger who would change her life forever.
Lady Rebecca seems to have a perfect life. A doting father, a man who loves her. But all that changes when a dark stranger enters her life and people begin to die, horribly. When fingers point toward her as being responsible, and thinking her love lost forever, Lady Rebecca finds herself forced to make a choice- wed a man she despises or be destroyed by the villagers, who distrust her because she has "The Power".
Lady Rebecca's choice leads to a centuries long search for Damien, the ark Sorcerer to gain vengeance for what he did to her and those she loved.

The stranger reined his horse to a stop within feet of the couple, his eyes fastening on Rebecca. "Excuse me, am I going in the correct direction for Thorne Castle?"
When he realized she was not going to answer, Stephen responded. "Straight through the copse, my good man. Do you have business with Sir Vincent?"
"Perhaps," he said. "Thank you for your assistance. Good-day." That black gaze was even more piercing at close range, and Stephen found himself wanting to protect Rebecca from its sight.
He moved to place an arm around her shoulders. "Good-day, sir."
Rebecca watched until horse and rider had vanished on the forest path, then drew a shuddering breath. Seeing Stephen's look of concern, she tried to smile, knew that she failed.
"What is wrong, Rebecca? I have never seen you react in that fashion to anyone - stranger or not."
"I could sense…"
He knew the story, had sworn never to tell anyone - especially not his superstitious father. "What did you sense?"
"Evil," she said, shuddering again. "There was a - darkness - about him. Hold me, Stephen. Please hold me."
He drew her into his arms, hoping to keep whatever she feared at bay, to protect her.
