Possessing a legendary Dragonheart makes Harper the most wanted person in a land of elves where magic rules and every person she meets will betray her. The Dragonheart is a chance for a better life, and Harper will not waste the opportunity of a lifetime. Thrust into action and peril and with only her sharp wits to guard her in a realm where everyone will betray her for their own gain, Harper will succeed—or die.

Searching for the king’s missing relic is his ruthless spymaster, Dimitrius. Dimitrius will stop at nothing to achieve his own treasonous agenda concerning the Dragonheart—and eliminate anyone who stands in his way. Including Harper.

When their paths cross, one look into the alluring spymaster’s eyes threatens more than just her safety and his mission. Dimitrius knows he should kill her. She could ruin him—but she is also the key to his salvation. Forced together, Harper and Dimitrius must ally to survive the King’s wrath in a fickle court where honesty is as lethal as lies.

Who will drown in deceit, who will rise triumphant—and who can resist forbidden temptation?
