Blood and betrayal …

The battle for the Crown of Valois has raged for two years, and in the deep-drifting snows of winter, a hostage of great value is taken by the traitors: Gabrielle de Thouars, a young noblewoman who
has risen quickly at court to become the confidant of Empress Vivienne.

An innocent pawn …

Innocent, demure, and fiercely loyal to the crown, Gabrielle refuses to say what mission was bringing her through rebel lands, but her capture is a coup in itself. What would Vivienne sacrifice to
get her favorite maid-in-waiting back?

A desperate plan …

What the traitors do not know is that Vivienne has planned Gabrielle’s capture – that those melting brown eyes and innocent smiles hide a mind sharper than anyone has guessed.

Gabrielle, a spy second to none, has been sent to destroy the rebellion from the inside.

… And a desire that could bring an empire to its knees.

What none anticipated, however, was the desire that would rise between Gabrielle and her captors—a lust that could break the rebellion … or doom the crown.
