Laura Calder's life is no longer her own and now time has run out – she must marry Andrew Easton – sweet, trusting Andrew who loves her wholeheartedly and is unaware that he is a pawn in his father's twisted fairy tale. Miguel is haunted by a sentence in Laura's note and when he finally learns the truth about her 'arranged' marriage, he sets in motion a plan to free her and also to reclaim his family's lost legacy which the duke harbors in a safe on his country estate. The talisman's messages have never been more specific and the bond between Miguel and Laura has never been stronger, but the duke's other demand may be the one thing that drives them apart forever. He wants a grandchild – not only as proof that Laura's love for Andrew is real, but also to prove once and for all that the gypsy curse has not come to pass. As Book Two in The Talisman Trilogy races to its dramatic conclusion, Tristan makes a startling revelation and a dark prince emerges from the shadows. But it is the duke himself who has been keeping the deepest, darkest secret of all – one powerful enough to rewrite history and seal the destinies of Laura, Miguel and Andrew forever. Their story will conclude in The Shadow King.
