William Collins never wanted to leave the comforts of Lilimar, his home. One day, the plantation would be his, and he’d poured his heart and soul into making it thrive. War breaks out around the world, and it becomes clear that he has to do his part for his country. If he has any hope of living the life he dreamed of, he first has to find peace to do it. So, he enlists as a gentleman spy and throws himself into danger without a second thought.
