by Kira Stone
It takes a young castle guardsman with the heart of a lion to love a Duke and survive. During a chance encounter, Curran is offered his dream job in Duke Luthias personal guard. The job soon sours as the lies and deceptions within the castle walls multiply until Curran can no longer stomach them. Tanis, the lover the Duke made Curran surrender as part of his oath of loyalty, is the only man he can trust to help him stop the Dukes ill-fated campaign to punish the northern raiders. But Tanis has secrets of his own. As much as he loves Curran, they could lose much more than their lives if he got involved now.
