Danger doesn’t have to carry a weapon.
Dace faces her most challenging assignment yet—mingling with the high society of Linas-Drias, capital of the Empire.
When Vance Shiropi, second most eligible bachelor in the Empire, surprises everyone with the announcement of his engagement to Dace—including her—he hands her a golden opportunity to look for the traitors pulling the Empire apart at the highest levels.
Dace agrees to spy for the Patrol on one condition: that they find Tayvis and explain everything to him.
But when her pretend engagement becomes all too real, she may be in too deep to escape. Can she survive the rarefied world of the extremely rich and powerful, and the dark secrets they are determined to keep?
