Dale grew up fighting for self respect and the respect of others. Being a Word Speaker hadn't helped. Most of the Guardians he had sought out those that were decidedly darker and fighting on what could be seen as the wrong side of the war. When Ciara gives him her gifts to follow her own happy ending he's forced to see his self worth and honor her precious gift. Breena is a dark sprite in charge of sneaking through dreams to steal information in a war between the Seelie and Unseelie court in her world. Finding out she's a book character destined to save the life of a human wasn't her cup of tea - but it was her father's. Commanded to get close the Word Speaker Dale so they could all enter his world she's forced to leave what she knows behind and corrupt a man on the brink of finding himself. When passion ignites between Dale and Breena he finds himself seduced by the darkness once more. He's tangled up in a web that threatens to change his stance in the war just before his 27th birthday. When her true intentions come out he will have to choose between dark and light, and where he stands in the war.
