Abandoned at the altar, Elisabeth Fitzgerald has spent the last seven years avoding matrimony. Now engaged to the entirely suitable Mr Shaw, she's justifiably appalled when one of her wedding guests reveals himself as none other than the man who jilted her years ago. Brendan Douglas has kept one step ahead of his enemies. After seven years of running, he's finally returned to Ireland, bent on retrieving a treasure he hid with Elisabeth-a treasure that could spell the violent overthrow of the Mortal world. Now days before her wedding, Elisabeth's got a houseful of relatives and a heart full of trouble. And knowing Brendan, things can only go from bad to worse.
