Chance is a rare combination; she is both an Associee and a Phoenix. The first is a
highly trained combination of geisha and courtesan, the second an even more highly

world, which leads many to give her a wide berth.
Tal is the King of the Nasc, a shape shifting people. His brother has just been murdered
and his sister kidnapped. He finds, much to his disgust, that he needs his brother’s
murderer to find his sister—and even worse, that he cannot stay away from her.
Chance and Tal travel throughout their world looking for Tal’s sister and her other form.
They should be enemies—she killed his brother, and her father has killed many of his
family—but they are so attracted to each other that they spend too much time making
love to kill each other. Chance, in her guise of mercenary/whore, seems to enjoy her

fights the feelings she has as much as Tal does. Striker is scary, but not as evil as he
