Jay is the enemy; an agent of the empire that killed her brother and threatens her home. He always completes his mission, but he's never had a mission quite like her...
Lina is a Patrician, brilliant but sheltered. She's always played it safe. Until now.
Lina is devastated by the loss of her brother. He died a war hero, but that is little comfort. Pushing away her family and friends, she cares nothing for the future. But the kind words and comforting embrace of Jay, her handsome gardener, break through the walls she’s built and gives her hope of a new life.
Lina’s life takes a dramatic turn as she becomes a pawn in the same war that killed her brother. Jay is not the gentle worker he appears. She finds herself taken captive by the man she trusted, forced across the continent devastated by wars, and thrust into the middle of the battle waging between two of the new America’s most powerful nations.
Can Lina and Jay ever learn to trust one another? Because the fate of both their nations may depend on the two of them working together to overcome the real enemy…
In this exciting sequel to Reaper, return to the west coast city of Alba, a place of assassins, secrets, and romance.
