Product Description: Book Fourteen in the best-selling Vorkosigan series.
Tej Arqua and her half-sister and servant Rish are fleeing the violent overthrow of their clan on free-for-all planet Jackson's Whole. Now it seems Tej may possess a hidden secret of which even she may not be aware. It's a secret that could corrupt the heart of a highly regarded Barayarran family and provide the final advantage for the thugs who seek to overthrow Tejís homeworld.
But none of Tej's formidable adversaries have counted on Ivan Vorpatril. For behind Ivanís fa«ade of wry and self-effacing humor lies a true and cunning protector who will never leave a distressed lady in the lurchĖup to and including making the ultimate sacrifice to keep her from harm: the treasured and hard-won freedom from his own fate as a scion of Barrayar.
