Leyna, a warrior woman and high-end thief, turned her back on her title of Lady Leynarve of Monsae after her parents' murder. Bent on revenge, Leyna travels to a hit where assassins gather, intending to find and kill the one who ruined her life.
Vygeas, a mercenary and assassin, has the gift of heightened perception, allowing him to sense his opponents' emotions and anticipate their every move. Sickened by the warmongering, Vygeas awaits execution for desertion. But he's given one final task to win his freedom...Kill a mark and avoid the gallows.
Unaware of Vygeas' trade, Leyna hitches a ride with this handsome sell-sword with exceptional abilities. Vygeas realises he has encountered the beautiful and capable Leyna's family before...on a previous hit.
While pursued by a powerful sorcerer-mage, they combine their skills to thwart his attempts to capture Leyna and destroy Vygeas.
Fighting their joint foes without, and battling their torments within, Vygeas and Leyna discover the truth that could destroy their newly forged relationship.
Will their past define them, or will they discover all they could be?
