"She walked along the rocky path to a neighboring meadow. As Willow approached the giant Alligator Juniper at the center, the tree’s limbs twisted to reshape the throne, adjusting to fit her body. Once the Guardian wreath was placed on her head, she comprehended the words of the ancients calling on her ties to the earth, linking her forever to the Coconino Forest. She felt the connection building until she could clearly see the edge of the forest for the first time. Willow vaguely heard the words expounded on the accomplishments of the Ashbrook Dryads and how their spirits would guide her to greatness."
In the small town of Bellemont, Arizona, most humans know to stay clear of the forest—especially at night. Strange, unexplainable things have been known to occur. Bray isn’t interested in rumors, and he doesn’t believe in myths. He’s made a name for himself in IT and is all about logic. He’s just purchased a beautiful cabin retreat in the woods. Despite numerous wilderness accidents, he refuses to leave. The connection he feels to this place is unlike anything he’s ever experienced before.
Evicting the human should be simple, but Willow’s Dryad powers aren’t working. This human is enchanting her instead of the other way around. The more time she spends with Bray, the more she realizes he’s not a threat, and she’s starting to succumb to her feelings for him. But humans are forbidden from having anything to do with her world. Council will never allow such a union, even if it could be the key to everything.
