She was a teacher, not a spy.
High school Spanish teacher Marianne Woolsey is happy with her life, until Earth Central Command forces her to sign up for a 26 year assignment light-years from Earth. In spite of herself, from the moment she meets her new employer’s infant daughter, she is all in, professionally and personally.
Practiced and deadly, the Sural has ruled Tolar for centuries. When he requests a tutor from Earth for his daughter and heir, Central Command sends him someone much more intriguing than the passive spy he expected. But this human woman clearly has secrets of her own, buried deep in her past, and even an empath like the Sural cannot be entirely sure of her motives.
On Tolar, espionage comes with a death sentence, and Marianne’s growing attraction for her employer might just get her killed. Can she trust this powerful ruler with her heart?
