Eyet, daughter of the Pharaoh, travels to a foreign land to wed a young Bodai (Bow-d-eye) Prince to restore a long-standing contract between their people. She reluctantly accepts her role, learns their ways, and waits for the day of her mating. Only, she secretly dreams of Arkean, a young Bodai warrior who she believes hates her. To complicate matters more, he is friend and kin to her intended mate.
Arkean has no memory of his life in Egypt or his parents who the Pharaoh slaughtered. Thoughts of revenge are ever-present, and training to be a great Bodai warrior like his father is the only way he can have it. But the Pharaoh who ruined Arkean's life sends his daughter to mate Arkean's kin. He can't help falling for her captivating innocence and beauty.
When the Pharaoh discovers that Arkean has been given unimaginable power, he has Eyet kidnapped from the Bodai and demands Arkean return to Egypt to join his army or Arkean's people risk war with the great nation. Will Arkean do whatever it takes to protect his people, even if it means swearing fealty to his parent's killer? Or will he take his revenge on the father of the woman he loves?
