Lin Yao wants a Helpmeet who'll warm his bed at night and lend a strong back during the day. He doesn't expect the complications that come with the mysterious Ko and the secrets he's keeping -- especially not those of the heart.
Independent, intelligent and kind despite his maddening reluctance to reveal the truth about his past, Ko is a riddle that Lin Yao is determined to solve. Lin Yao's secondary Helpmeet, Nori -- a mistake on behalf of the Tribunal Councils -- has her own ideas on how to save Ko from himself, but will Lin Yao listen to her or insist on forging his own path to Ko's heart?
Although they seem mismatched in almost every way, Lin Yao and Ko -- and Nori -- form a stable unit. It's Ko, however, around whom everything revolves -- and it's Ko who'll be the fulcrum on which their world tilts on its edge.
Now Lin Yao must not only trust, but love, if this hardened criminal and a fugitive from justice are to escape their separate fates.
