Dirt needs to be dug up on the Crown Prince Laurent. Zigrien, having been appointed to work under commander Sir Idris Klyne, has the perfect opportunity to get on the inside and bring to light any incriminating information. There’s just one issue: Idris Klyne is a bloodthirsty maniac and a lapdog of the crown prince. Getting caught snooping by Sir Idris could mean the end for Zigrien. But having access to the royal palace now, this is Zigrien’s perfect opportunity to satisfy his father’s objectives and thus avoid being sent off to do military duty in remote lands. But what was supposed to be standard eavesdropping turns into a shocking revelation. Now Zigrien is caught up in affairs he had never anticipated. Will love and lust wither or bloom in this wicked royal web that Laurent has ensnared him in?
