As a Watcher, a guardian warrior of the Draconi, Enar has never fit in with his kind. When he sees Lily--the ideal Watcher's woman--he instantly claims her, believing she will bring him the acceptance he craves. Falling in love with her was not part of his plan.
As her town's outcast, Lily wants nothing more than to escape. When Enar locks a necklace around her throat and declares she belongs to him, she jumps at the chance to leave. Her excitement soon becomes trepidation when Enar won't tell her what to expect in his world. But even her worry can't overcome her growing attraction to him.
Soon Lily learns what life as a Watcher's claim entails, and refuses to submit. To keep Lily, Enar must turn his back on everything he thought he wanted. Will he choose his people? Or the other half of his soul?

“You don’t mind leaving?”All brawn, no brain obviously.
Hadn’t she just said that downstairs?
“That’s right. I want to leave. You want to take me. It works out well for both of us. Now, how much can I take?”
“You do not feel a need to take your entire shop, do you?” A small wrinkle appeared between his brows.
“As you noticed earlier, there’s not much to take. I have clothes and personal items. A couple of bags, maybe.”
“One bag. Thoren travels light. Insists we do the same.” He glanced to the bed and back to her, grinning. “Besides, the less time you take packing, the more time we’ll have for pleasure.”
Lily’s whole body stiffened, as blood pounded in her ears. Oh, Goddess, not now. She hadn’t left the town. Now she’d never leave. He’d crush her before she could be free.
He took a swaggering step toward her, cupping her face in his hand. “Don’t be frightened. I won’t hurt you.”
Sure you won’t, look at the size of you.
Bending forward, he placed his lips against hers, pressing gently. And just like that, her nervousness vanished.
