The Shattered Stair
Rowan has always had to stand alone. She fought to find her own place and meaning in a world that judged her harshly for every error. As the unwanted child of ambitious parents, she was never good enough, she could never make up for her first big mistake; being born.
Jalhar was born to a nightmare world of magic. He learned the cost of love as a young boy when he lost everyone he had ever known to a flight of monsters. The pain of his family’s brutal slaughter burns within him. Painful flashbacks remind him daily not to love and tear at his mind and soul.
She is haunted by the aching emptiness she sees in him that so matches her own. He knows that she is the one person that he was meant to love, but he can not give in to the passion between them.
Together can they find the peace that eludes them both. Can they ever dare to love?
