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.

At the Christmas revels, Fitz befriends Damaris Myddleton, a young heiress under Rothgar's—and now Fitz's—protection. Their flirtation turns into something more, even though Fitz knows he can never marry her. With Fitz intent on protecting Ash, he lets his guard down and Damaris is almost killed. He vows that whoever is responsible shall not see the light of day.
