It was a season of treachery and vengeance...

of nobility and redemption...

all because of love.

Prince Devon Rathenberg, the Emperor’s Fox and chief of intelligence, fell in love with the Lady Tamar Falkeep.  This would be a simple lover’s tale except he would never be allowed to marry the third daughter of the least Duke in the Human Galactic Empire.  Devon could never legitimately declare his love—the lady would reject any overture as seduction.  
Then the unthinkable became reality.  In the insurrection that threatened to tear apart the Human Galactic Empire, Devon designed a plan to reveal the Empire’s internal enemies and force them to act.  It was a plan of desperation, and a plan that by design would result in Devon Rathenberg’s death.  
Before he died Devon had but one goal: he wished to win the heart of Tamar Falkeep and declare his love.  
With the Emperor’s reluctant approval, Devon put his plans into motion.  The place:  Duke Falkeep’s annual Ball.  The target:  Count Domanic Yedric.  The plan:  a duel that would force an uprising before Yedric and his allies were ready to strike, and to be successful, Devon must die.  
Devon won the Lady Tamar’s heart, but he didn’t count on her resourcefulness.  Lady Tamar was no feeble maiden.  He succeeded in his intrigue, but she brought him back to life and would not let go.
Now Devon faced a triple problem—first, he gave his love to a woman he could not legitimately marry, second, he lost his honor to Count Yedric, and third, the insurrection he caused spread to the House Imperial.
Now, at all costs, Devon, the Emperor’s Fox, must fight the rebellion, gain back his honor, and hold onto the love of Tamar Falkeep.
