Krinard's imagination knows no bounds as she steps into the mystical realm of the unicorn and takes readers along for the ride of their fairy-tale lives. Haunting, chilling, sensual and magical, this tale of forbidden desire is as old as time, yet modern, accessible and spellbinding.

Forced to choose a husband to save her mother from life in an asylum, Mariah weds the Duke of Donnington. Abandoned on her wedding night, she spends her days walking the grounds of the neglected estate, where she finds a man imprisoned.

He cannot speak, but he communicates his desires. Mariah names him Ash. In truth he is Arion, King of the Unicorns, captured by her husband and condemned to live as a man until a virgin tames him and holds him in thrall. Mariah frees Ash, teaches him the ways of society and introduces him to the world, regardless of what others might fear about the mystery man she adores. As their friendship turns to passion, Ash knows he can never have the woman he loves. Only Mariah's love and her as-yet-untapped powers stand in his enemies' way. (HQN, Apr., 395 pp., $6.99)
