Summary

Young Remeya - fosterling and maid-in-waiting to King Xavo's sister - worships the old and forbidden horned god alongside the princess. 
 
A worship made taboo half a millennium ago. Performed still in secret by a few. Quietly tolerated by the king. 
 
Until madness took him, there beside the stone well on the grassy hillside of the castle's outer bailey. 
 
As the king's mind unravels into violence, no one near him remains safe, not even his best beloved. Especially not his best beloved. 
 
Worse, Remeya believes King Xavo's insanity arose from her own mistake. Because she said yes, instead of no. 
 
When life itself hangs in the balance, putting wrong to right is surely past praying for. Or is it? 
 
Epic fantasy in which old beliefs and old loyalties clash with hidden magic in the Middle Ages of J.M. Ney-Grimm's god-touched North-lands. 
 
 
EXCERPT FROM HUNTING WILD 
 
The pebbles of the underground stream bed dug into the soles of her feet, and the chill of the shallow water numbed her toes. 
 
The rough surface of the ceiling sloped down, scraping her back, forcing her to bend, to crouch, to curl enough that she caught her balance with her hands in the wet. 
 
The light faded swiftly. Had she gone far enough? 
 
She paused, eyes adjusting. 
 
The glimmering ripples of the spring's source cast dim flickers against the rocks pressing her down.

    Buckle up—the argeneaus are back in a sexy, witty new novel from New York times bestselling author Lynsay Sands 
    Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn’t expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full-body shock he feels whenever he’s near the vehicle’s driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate. 
    The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn’t feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn’t believe it. But now that the men who took Dante’s twin are after her too, trusting her gut means risking her life for an immortal who’s the very definition of a perfect stranger.
