Sasha Flanagan lives her life by the sword-quite literally. As a collector and dealer of antique blades and an expert swordswoman, she's spent much of her life single-mindedly pursuing her goal to own one of the most elite weaponry galleries in the world. Murdering fae popping out of dark alleys are certainly not part of her carefully designed life plans. Sasha quickly finds herself drawn into a centuries-old curse-in which, to her surprise-she holds the leading role. Tasked with finding a mythological sword while accompanied by a rag-tag band of magickal beings shakes her understanding of the world as she knows it. The added distraction of a devastatingly handsome protector, Declan, is the last thing Sasha wants or needs. Declan has shadowed Sasha since they were both but wee children. He has grown up with her-silently watching her every move-his heart aching when hers ached and his pride swelling at her accomplishments. Whether Sasha wants his help or not, Declan will die before he sees her harmed. As the clock runs out on their quest, Sasha isn't sure which is in greater danger: her heart or her life.
