**2016 Rainbow Award Winning Poly Romance Series**
My secret could save my people. It will also destroy my life.
My name is Carivel. I was born female, but I've been living as a boy for years in my adoptive village of Draebard, doing a job the elders insist can only be done by a male. Getting too close to anyone risks revealing my birth sex, and if I am discovered, I'll become a pariah--facing exile, or worse. The last thing I ever needed was to fall in love with two unattainable men. The last thing I ever expected was for both of them to love me back.
It's not just me, though. The men I love have secrets, too. Senovo, a eunuch priest, has been hiding his shape-shifting curse, convinced that the wolf inside him is a cold-blooded killer he can't control.
By contrast, Andoc is a fierce warrior and a favorite of the village chieftain. But if his history of male lovers--including Senovo--came to light, that could all change very quickly.
Now, the three of us are embroiled in a desperate bid to unite the ragtag tribes on the island of Eburos against an invasion by the powerful Alyrion Empire. One by one, our secrets are coming out. And it's not merely our own lives at stake--far from it. If the negotiations fall apart, it might just mean the end of everything.
