Two things in life never bargain. Death . . . and Kalder Dupree.

A Myrcian by birth, Kalder is about as mercenary as anyone you’ll ever meet. He doesn’t believe in country or family, only in money and he’ll fight for any profit, never for cause.  But who can blame him? His own mother was the one who killed him in cold blood. Being born of a cold-blooded amphibious race doesn’t tend to make anyone believe in the goodness of others. They are cannibalistic and shark-like from cradle to grave. It’s what has made him one of the most valued member of Bane’s crew.

Until the day Cameron Jack stumbles into their lives. From the moment Kalder meets her, he discovers a bit of soul he didn’t know he had. And somewhere he learns to protect the one bit of human he’s ever met.

For her alone, he will bleed and he will fight.
