The Guy has nothing against Ambassador Sebastian Vuitton, but for the right price, he’d kill a god. A man has to make a living, after all.

A dead body, however—one for which he isn’t responsible—impairs his task and tosses him into a conflict in the Olympian land of Carman. If the Guy had done his homework, he might’ve known of the energy crisis, of the escalating conflict between Carman and adjacent nation Bismalle, and of the rumored imminent birth of the next Pearle, whose power rivals that of the ancient savior. And he didn’t count on an interlude with a royal temptress, either.

When Lady Alexis of Carman meets the Guy at the annual masquerade ball, her intentions with him do not include the morning after. Nevertheless, the former duke, Preston of Bismalle, and the head of the Brigade of the Secret Service, Sir Beauregard, foil her plans for a lustful evening at the ball. The next she knows, she and the Guy are tossed in the middle of a grueling political investigation and learn the enemy may come from within.

With the help of her three sisters—and a mysterious bejeweled scepter—Alexis forces the truth to come out. But in these tense times, is the truth enough to save her Guy, let alone the next Pearle, when so many have already perished?
