Description: Beneath the fairie mound of Dunhaven's Door, two dreamers meet their destiny? After a decade of trying to outrun her debilitating dreams, Keely returns to Ireland to face the ancient ring of stones and the man haunting them. Within the stones, she embraces her fairie heritage and her mystical gifts. But can she trust the handsome Halfling who shares her dreams and holds her heart? When Keely reappears in his life, Colin's fairie blood threatens to gain the upper hand. Compelled to assist the lovely Halfling, he agrees to help her break the three-hundred-year-old curse on their families, but he'll do it on his terms--as a black wolf. Together, two Halflings can stand against any power, but only love can break the bonds of bitterness. Will Colin's arrogant plan to outwit the King of the Fairies doom Keely for eternity? Or is their love enough to break the curse?

"You're right. The point is, they were real, Colin. Saraid and Owein were real, not just fictional characters from a heartbreaking legend."
"So it would seem."
"They're your ancestors."
"And yours," he reminded her. "You're a descendant of Saraid and Owein, too."
"I didn't miss that detail."
"Yes, but has it occurred to you what that means?" At her blank look, he added, "We carry Owein's blood, Keely, as well as Saraid's."
She stared at him for a moment. Her disbelieving laughter took care of the residual tightness in her belly. "Fairie blood?" she scoffed. "Please!" A lifted brow was his only response. "That's as ridiculous as it is impossible."
"As ridiculous and impossible as sharing your dreams with a handsome Irishman for a decade?"
She narrowed her eyes at his taunting grin, but had to admit, he had a point. Fairie blood. Good God! How was she supposed to feel about that? She had no clue. She was going to need some time to come to grips with all she'd learned in the past few hours--if coming to grips with the unbelievable was even possible.
