Lord Orwell is a lot of things: thief, liar, drunk, and all around horrible father, but Sebastian knows he's no murderer. In order to prove it, Sebastian has to keep the prince alive long enough to discover the truth—a task made considerably harder because the idiot prince prefers wooing Sebastian over securing his own survival. On top of everything, Sebastian needs to save the day without revealing his magical powers and the real reason he hides his appearance.
Sebastian had no intention of playing the hero, but whoever is stirring up shit in his country will pay for destroying his quiet life.
All recovering drug addict and witch Jeremy Ragsdale wants is to shamble on to the next job without any disasters. Instead, the temp agency saddles him with a fellow witch who hates him, an Amazon one violent outburst away from deportation, and a knight from another world as his boss. Even worse, their jack-of-all-trades magic business stumbles upon a conspiracy to kill Desmond the Great, Atlanta’s sexy star magician. Jeremy must prevent it without letting his colleagues know that he not only has ties to the energy vampires behind the plot, but that his past misdeeds might have instigated the attacks.
Despite Jeremy sporting a suit and tie like a good witch, his lies snowball to bite him in the ass. The lack of trust brewing between him and his teammates could cost Desmond his life and Jeremy his progress on the straight and narrow path if his secrets are revealed. Because no matter how much Jeremy has reformed, there’s still enough bad witch in him to kill anyone who messes with him or the people he cares about.
Lord Orwell est beaucoup de choses : voleur, menteur, ivrogne et un père horrible, mais Sebastian sait qu’il n’est pas un meurtrier. Afin de le prouver, il devra garder le prince en vie assez longtemps pour découvrir la vérité – une tâche rendue considérablement plus ardue, car le prince préfère le courtiser au lieu de veiller à sa propre survie. Par-dessus tout, Sebastian doit sauver la situation sans révéler ses pouvoirs magiques ni la véritable raison pour laquelle il dissimule son apparence.
Sebastian n’a aucune intention de jouer au héros, mais celui qui sème la zizanie dans son pays, va devoir payer pour avoir détruit sa petite vie tranquille.
