Book description
An honorable prince. A Jaded assassin. Can they work together to catch a pirate?

Gerard lost his birthright in his small island kingdom when he married the court minstrel. He fled to the only place that offered protection from his father and his vengeful local deity--the service of the High Priestess. As part of her Highness's Sea Watch, Gerard hoped to live out his days quietly with his wife and family.

However, Silveo, the Admiral of the Temple Sea Watch, takes an instant disliking to Gerard. Silveo has a reputation for cruelty, cunning, and a biting wit. He's a foxling - a minority species - and rumors say that he was once an assassin, who clawed his way to power from a childhood of poverty and abuse. He cultivates serial affairs with persons ranging from his own lieutenants to dock prostitutes. On the surface, Silveo could not be more different from Gerard - a member of the dominant species class, born to money and power, adhering to strict codes of honor, and devoted to his wife.

Things don't get any easier when the Priestess promotes Gerard to Captain of the Temple Police. Gerard's presence seems to jeopardize the position Silveo has carved out for himself. Silveo threatens to kill Gerard if he stays with the Temple service.

In spite of their differences, the Priestess insists that Gerard and Silveo cooperate to destroy the charismatic pirate, Gwain, and his mysterious organization, the Guild of the Cowry Catchers. Gwain has been killing off the Temple Police for years, and he seems likely to make a swift end of Gerard...if Silveo doesn't do it first.
