Once, Tara dreamed of being the power behind the throne. Now, she plots revenge on the duke who killed her twin, while trying not to fall for his charms or give in to her dark side.
Sixteen-year-old Tara’s psychic bond with her twin, Gene, allows them to combine his strength with her intelligence so they can both excel as assistants to the Peers who rule their world—until Gene dies in a duel with the arrogant young Duke Longville.
Vowing revenge, Tara becomes Duke Longville’s personal advisor to manipulate him and provoke an uprising that will lead to his death. Destroying the Duke she’s sworn to serve would could result in her execution, but to avenge her brother, she’s willing to take any risk. Tara expects to despise working with Gene’s killer. Instead, she feels a traitorous attraction towards Longville and discovers they possess the same telepathic connection she once shared with her brother.
Tara’s sense of right and wrong blurs as her love for Longville increases and her schemes against him escalate. Tara must decide which is more important: the bond she shared with her brother or the one she has with the man responsible for his death —before she becomes a villain neither of them would want to know.
