England, 1588. When a fairy betrothal ritual goes wrong, village lad Tam is bonded to Herne the Hunter. Warrior, legend, and Greenwood spirit, Herne once led the terrifying Wild Hunt, an army of the undead who rode as harbingers of doom. When his passions are stirred and his blood is up, Herne sports the antlers of a mighty stag.
Herne could be the dominant lover Tam secretly craves, but Herne's past makes Tam fear the brooding warrior will enslave or kill him. While Herne admires Tam's toughness and humor, he has rejected love – as he has sworn off leading the Wild Hunt – and wishes only for solitude. To break their betrothal, they must travel into the Greenwood, a realm of magic and bondage where their desires for each other grow dangerously irresistible, and the Wild Hunt bays for their blood.
As the threat rises, Herne's mastery and compassion realize Tam's darkest sexual fantasies. Soon he's no longer fighting for his freedom, wishing to be bound to the beast forever. But can Herne's tortured heart be reawakened? And if so, will their love destroy them both, or prove Herne the Hunter's greatest weapon?
