Tears of the Reaper
Reaper Owen Tohre has looked into the blazing fires of hell and known its brutal flames. After his last assignment, he is not the man he once thought himself to be and the difference is eating away at his very soul. His internal strife is tearing him apart and the only way he has found to handle it is by abusing the strong narcotic that keeps his beastly side in check.
Having left the Citadel for awhile to come to terms with what had happened to him, he finds himself riding close to the international border between the Wismin Territory of Serenia and the Manontaque Province of the Northmen Cadre when he hears a young boy screaming for help. Without thinking, he goes to the boy's aid but after saving the child, Tohre goes into a violent seizure that nearly claims his life.
Awakening in a strange bed, in a strange place populated by a strict cult of stern men and subservient women, Tohre will find himself reflected in the fearful lilac eyes of Rachel Lawrence. Realizing this woman is his destiny, Tohre will risk everything to make her his own.
