As a Better, an enhanced human, Alitus can touch no one -- his pheromones are addictive. He must touch no one. But how long can he deny his heart?
Ordered by the Empress to find out if the lover of a friend is having an affair, Alitus investigates. As Minister of Imperial Intelligence, Alitus has access to every camera and remote in the empire. Which is a problem, because Wulf's affair is with Alitus.
Isolated and under scrutiny, he keeps his affair with Wulf secret. They say cheaters never win and winners never cheat. But when you're addictive and no one may touch you, sometimes you have to break the rules.
Complicating matters, the empress reveals her immortality, and requires Alitus to prove his loyalty. Her test throws him straight into Wulf's arms, right in front of the empress and Wulf's lover. Hiding what he and Wulf are to each other has taken discipline and denial.
Now, it will take a miracle...
