It was supposed to be an easy job: Get in, assassinate the queen, and get out. Instead, his fellow mercenary is dead and Madoc is chained in the dungeon, fighting his unwelcome attraction to the woman who defeated him--the queen’s bodyguard, Raine. When she interrogates him about the traitor who hired him, he propositions her. He’ll tell her what he knows, if she’ll spend one night of passion with him.
Raine isn’t just a bodyguard--she’s his target, the queen. Magic amulets allow her to switch identities with her bodyguard, and also let her assume a disfigured appearance that discourages anyone from looking at her too closely. Madoc’s offer takes her completely by surprise. Though she knows she can’t trust a mercenary, she can’t deny she’s attracted to him. Her need for answers gives her the excuse to indulge in her desires--at least for one night.
What starts as a sexual power play soon turns into a connection that is more than physical. But Raine’s enemies haven’t given up their quest for her throne, and they intend to destroy the one person who could reveal the truth behind their treachery: Madoc.
