The illegitimate daughter of the late King of Harbeny, Lady “Poppy” Pyppenia would like nothing better than to retire from court. But intrigues, assassination attempts, and relations with the new king’s family all tangle her in a potentially fatal web. She and Cyrenic, her faithful guard from the Sleepless Order of knights, develop feelings for each other, yet all seems to conspire against them. A gorgeously drawn sword-and-sorcery romance with Mediterranean and Moroccan influences. (SLJ 10/18)
