Maggie Malone falls through a mysterious door during a Hollywood studio tour and lands in a strange world full of man-eating monsters. All she wants, beyond survival, is to return home. The sexy Neanderthal keeping her alive questions her life choices and marches her halfway across creation, but claims he can get her home.
Darrios Derosa is a loner, out to rid his world of the murderous beasts in Celio's Outer Rim. They took his best friend--he won't allow them to take anyone else. The last thing Darrios needs is an alluring woman under his protection--especially one in denial. She wants to be taken home, but doesn't realize what she's asking.
Darrios promises to take Maggie to Inland, where she'll be safe, and from there to Avascon, where she can get home. But first they have to fight the monsters and the fire...the one blazing up between them.
