Waiting is Worse than Knowing - Thread of the Month, January 2012
Vance Stonehill - Character of the Month, February 2012

Rheava Evesham's Spy Master and her Master of the Guard have had a long standing working relationship in which they have looked at the other with respect and admiration. Unbeknownst to the the other, strong feelings began to develop on both sides, but neither were willing to say anything. Vance Stonehill, having been scarred and disfigured in Rheava's breaking and deposing, believes strongly that his days of being welcome in a woman's bed are long behind him. Rhiannon Devine has spent the years since her own breaking fiercely dedicated to her own work and never taking the time or interest in dating or courting. Her inexperience and intense focus on her job lead her to believe a man of Vance's position would never take interest in a woman like her.

These misunderstandings lead to some horrible miscommunications when Vance asks Rhiannon to take on the very dangerous job of getting close to Dirk Ryder in order to attempt to gain information that could link him to the murders that have occurred at Court. It is not until Vance is giving her this assignment and she shows him her signal that he realizes how intense his feelings for her are. When she comes to him, after having slept with Dirk the night of Logain Morr's welcome dinner, they fight and have a tragic miscommunication.

It is not until Vance returns from a trip with his Queen and Rhiannon seeks him out in order to ask him to stop interfering with her work that she discovers the truth about his feelings for her. They share a brief moment of passion before he must send her back to her life and her job, where everyone believes her to be the beloved darling of Dirk Ryder.

Now, Rhiannon and Vance must attempt to navigate further miscommunications and private meetings while keeping their feelings for each other a secret from everyone or risk endangering both of their lives. Vance struggles with the amount of secrets Rhiannon must carry as the Spy Master, as well as having to watch her in another man's embrace. Rhiannon doesn't understand the way Vance seems to push her away. Their feelings for each other run deep, but whether that will be enough remains to be seen.
