The stirring adventures of Lara continue in this rivetting tale of secrets, obsession, love and the power of destiny..

Lara, the Domina of Terah, disappears without a trace while visiting the clans families of the New Outlands. The Dominus, Magnus Hauk, mounts an exhaustive search of his lands hoping to bring his beloved wife home. When the search proves fruitless, he turns to his magical allies, Prince Kaliq of the Shadows Princes and Ilona, Lara’s mother and the awesomely powerful Queen of the Forest Faeries, for help. The magical beings have their own agendas where it concerns Lara and they are well aware that destiny is master of all.

Meanwhile in the Dark Lands, Kol, the Twilight Lord, gloats over his successful abduction of Lara. She is the mate promised to him. Her limitless powers will finally gain him all that he has sought – the conquest of Hetar and Terah, and a son made in his own evil image.

While the magical realms jockey for position, the emperor of Hetar, Gaius Prospero, plans to attack Terah. What Gaius Prospero does not know is that he is not the only power hungry, ambitious man in Hetar and he should watch his back.

Welcome back to the lush beauty of the World of Hetar! In this third book in the ongoing series Lara faces the terrible burdens of her destiny with grace and great strength. One of the many fascinating aspects of this series, as with all of Bertrice Small’s work, is the indomitable will and the unfathomable well of strength from which her heroines draw the courage to face even the most tragic situations. This in no way takes away from the other dynamic characters but it is a measure of the greatness expected of her heroines. In The Twilight Lord Lara shines like a beacon in the dark spotlighting the incredible cast of characters, good guys, bad guys, and the shady ones, too. This series is all the more compelling for the variety of characters involved. If you do not believe me see for yourself.
