Description from J Yee smart chick: I am rereading a fascinating book titled "Mystic and Rider" by Sharon Shinn - her characters are very complex, strong willed and smart...
This one's set in a world where some folks who have magical powers are feared... the heroine, Senneth, is what's called a "mystic" with the ability to control fire... and the guy she falls in love with is one of the King's men, a "Rider" - sworn to defend the king, and carry out whatever mission he is sent on - in this case, he is to protect Senneth and her other companions, as they travel around the kingdom and investigate rumors of unrest...
Senneth also happens to be of aristocratic origins originally, and Tayse, the rider hero, is definitely working class, from a family who has generations of Riders who have served the king... and Tayse thinks he is not good enough for Senneth...
