Goddess knows he cant be a surgeon--the Quayestri already branded him a criminal for trying--so bringing people back from the dead it is.But when Ward wakes the beautiful Celia Carlyle, he gets more than he bargained for. Insistent that shes been murdered, Celia begs Ward to keep her alive and help her find justice. By the time she drags him out her bedroom window and into the sewers, Ward cant bring himself to break his damned physicians Oath and desert her.However, nothing is as it seems--including Celia. One second, shes treating Ward like sewage, the next shes kissing him. And for a noblemans daughter, she sure has a lot of enemies. If he could just convince his heart to give up on the infuriating beauty, he might get out of this alive...
