The Dragons' magic Veil separates their peaceful, bountiful sanctuary of Isoladia from a land exhausted by drought and endless fighting. On her husband-quest, feisty Princess Shaila violates the Law of that serene world to find a man who won't stifle her need for freedom. She convinces her loquacious Dragon, Galvistor, to carry her through the Veil on her search. Outside the Veil, Captain Breedyn Sol is a compelling commander who dreams of peace in spite of constant war. Despising beautiful, scheming women even more than fighting, his life is untarnished by love. A sterile existence, but a stable one. From the moment they meet, the self-centered Princess and the noble solider clash as much as their disparate worlds. Neither realizes their opposition will lead to what they most desire. No one realizes that once breached the Veil will fade away, and that one woman's moment of self-indulgence will change the course of existence for both worlds.
