He hopes his fellow agent, Zenia, can help him locate the missing dwarves. Even though she rejected his offer of a romantic relationship because of their status differences, they have become good friends, and she has years of experience finding criminals.
But this kidnapping is anything but simple. Jev and Zenia find themselves entangled in a snarled plot that threatens the entire kingdom while making them realize their true feelings for each other. If they can’t rescue the dwarves, deter an invasion, and stop an explosive plot to destroy half the city, they may lose everything they love. Including each other.
Jev and Zenia have a remarkable pile to handle in their roles as Crown Agents. They have to rescue two dwarves, deter an invasion, stop an explosive plot to destroy half the city and, also deal with a romantic attraction they are developing for each other.
