Blurb: When Lord Hark is stabbed, his uncle, the Governor of Eyvindar, hires a Mercenary to protect his heir. Hark resents having a babysitter, but when he meets Cax he’s unprepared for the spark of attraction between them.
Cax is a Mercenary, living by the code of his Guild. He is hired to protect Hark, even though it seems Hark’s biggest enemy is himself as he drowns in moon-ivy wine every day. But Cax can’t deny his attraction to the warrior, nor can he deny his attraction to Hark’s loyal servant, Alisander.
Alisander has been by Hark’s side almost his whole life. He is in love with Hark, pining over the impossibility of their relationship, but when he meets Cax he sees a future away from the servant life he’s been confined to—and even more than that in the Mercenary’s arms.
They are all three from different walks of life but manage to find love. Yet they need to discover the truth of the threat closing in on Hark, before it’s too late.

Review: Lord Hark is upset when he finds out that his uncle the Governor has hired Cax, a mercenary, to protect him from the assassination attempts on his life. He finds out that his servant Alisander, the man he secretly has wanted for a long time, has feelings for Cax and that Cax returns those feelings. But as time goes on, they all start to have feelings for each other. While trying to deal with that there is also the fact that someone is out to kill, Lord Hark by any means necessary.
The man behind the assassination attempts is a man who thinks his rightful place was taken from him so it’s vengeance and revenge he seeks in my opinion. There were two or three attempts on Hark’s life that were thwarted. Several fight scenes were intense.
This story is full of action, drama, and suspense. Hot sex between Hark, Cax, and Ali added a brief pause to the action of finding out who the traitor is. Good read.
