When last heard from, Captain Heris Serrano, cashiered Captain of the Fleet, now captain of a rich lady's yacht, and her employer, Lady Cecelia, had just triumphed over a heinous cabal, a "Hunting Club" that used human beings as prey. Much to her horror, one of the hunters had been none other than Prince Gerel, first in line to the throne. He had been told the nature of his prey only at the last minute, and was assured that they were criminal volunteers who would get off scot-free if only they could avoid the hunters for a mere three days. While deeply uneasy about the morality of the whole venture, and unwilling to indulge in any "hunting" himself, the Prince had been persuaded of the legitimacy of the "club's" activities.

How could he have been so stupid??

Having volunteered herself and her yacht to spirit the Prince home so as to avoid a Royal Scandal, that indeed is the question that Lady Cecelia-of the Blood Royal herself-wants answered; she remembers her nephew the Heir Apparent as a rather bright young lad.

From the Publisher:
Spiriting home Prince Gerel, the first in line to the throne, in hopes of avoiding a scandal, yacht owner Lady Cecelia and Captain Heris Serano begin to suspect the sinister nature of Gerel's failing mental capacity
Author Bio
Elizabeth Moon
Susan Elizabeth Norris Moon was born during World War II to a divorced mother who was an aeronautical engineer. Moon began writing, according to her mother, as soon as she could hold a pencil. On her website, Moon says that one of her earliest complete works was a musical comedy, with music and lyrics, written when she was 10--apparently it was quite bad. She began reading science fiction in junior high school, and writing it shortly afterwards. Moon received a B.A. in history from Rice University in 1968 and then joined the Marines later that year. She served in the Marines for three years, during the Vietnam War, mostly working with computers. In 1969 she married Richard Moon. After leaving the Marines, she worked a number of different jobs--including as a paramedic and as a city alderman, a post she held for four years--while also working toward another degree. In 1975 she received a B.A. in biology from the University of Texas at Austin, subsequently doing graduate work in biology at the University of Texas at San Antonio. 1986 saw the publication of Moon's first fiction, three short stories. In 1988 her first novel, SHEEPFARMER'S DAUGHTER, appeared. It was the first part of a trilogy--eventually compiled in one volume as THE DEED OF PAKSENARRION--about the adventures of a female soldier, much of the detail of which had been drawn from Moon's own military experience. After this series, she co-authored a pair of books with Anne McCaffrey, before starting a duology called The Legacy of Gird, a sequel to the Paksenarrion books. Moon's later novels have also been parts of several different series, while she has also published LUNAR ACTIVITY and PHASES, both short-story collections.
