Zina Pajarinov, illusionist mage of the Red Hand, has only known a life of strict secrecy and unquestionable obedience to her assassin family. Directed to slay a monarch, she enters his castle disguised as a dancing minstrel. She soon falls for the court mage, a man of power and prestige who holds the key to her escape from a violent and oppressive existence. 

Matthias Otto, Royal Wizard of Ilesia, has served the kingdom with unshakeable loyalty like his father before him. As a man who values magical talent, he becomes intrigued by the new dancer's illusions. Stopping at nothing to win her affections, he is astounded to learn this beauty isn't an innocent artist but an assassin sent to destroy the very crown he protects.

Drawn together by an appreciation for magic and one another, their love will be tested by the bounds of duty and revelation of secrets threatening to tear them apart. She will fight bondage to an oath sealed in blood. He will forsake allegiance to an ancient lineage. All in the name of love.
