He's an Elf Lord trying to save his people. She's a fantasy writer trying to save her sanity. Chosen by the gods to rescue an entire race, they first have to save each other.
Is widowed fantasy writer, Korrene Greenwood, going insane? She thinks she is when the man of her dreams, the sexy hero of her current novel, appears in her kitchen one morning and starts talking to her. The fact that he is also a five-foot, eleven-inch, green-eyed, blond-haired, magic wielding elven package of sensual masculinity contributes to her conviction that a visit to a therapist is in order.
Bent on saving her sanity, she attempts to destroy the manuscript and all traces of her book. But her hero, Rendolin, is shocked at her genocidal tendencies. To prevent her killing his people, he carries her off to his world — the world Kory believes she created.
Eternal love, an end to a life of loneliness with an entire race to call her family -- Kory achieves her heart's desire through the story she dared to dream in one world, as it comes to life and lives through the eons in another.
“Woman, do you know how to answer a question without asking another?” Rendolin was surprised at how angry he was becoming. As the High Priest of Mac Lir, he had always been proud of his self-control, but this human woman shredded his control as easily as a fish swims.
He watched her as a deep flush crept up her neck and anger made her eyes spark. By the god’s right eye, she was a lovely woman. But he must find out what her words meant.
Forcing himself to concentrate on the subject, he asked again, “Do you agree to Bind with me?”
“You are the most irritating person I know! Why are you getting mad at me? I’m the one who was hurt you know,” Kory said as she slammed a piece of meat down on the ground. Rendolin began to pace the riverbank in quick, angry strides.
“You are acting like a child, Korrene.” He inhaled deeply trying to regain his calm. He stopped his pacing and turned back to face her. “Simply answer my question — will you Bind with me?”
