Genre: Historical Romance
An ex-army major with a scandalous past, Octavius "Fitz" Fitzroger is known for his expertise as a bodyguard.
When the powerful Marquess of Rothgar hires Fitz to protect his cousin, the Marquess of Ashart, from an assassin, Fitz finds himself in a quandary. He's not to inform his friend Ash that his life is in danger, but he begins to suspect that court politics play a sinister part in the matter.
