To survive in the new world, there are some rules that can never be broken...
High Priestess Xian has willingly embraced the role chosen for her since birth. Yet the joy she receives from helping others is overshadowed by her feelings for the personal guard she must never touch, and the growing belief that the world she lives in is wrong.
On their journey to the ancient city, Hel can’t prevent Xian from aiding a man who belongs to no caste and follows no rules but his own. But the curiosity and growing desire of his priestess may force Hel to cross lines he'd never before dared…and reveal the one secret he's kept hidden for years.
Damn the rules. Even if he has to share her, she belongs to him.
