Danger surrounds con-artist extraordinaire Diego as he infiltrates the Hades Helmet world. Posing as The Ambassador, he must deceive everyone to pull off another con, one that could cost him his life. What he really wants is to be with Anarrae and explore what they started on Il Doge, no masks, no lies. An assassin is on the loose and their lives are threatened but only the passion they've found can keep them sane in a world filled with subterfuge. Can Diego convince Ana to be with him even as the danger increases?

Author Note: Subterfuge takes place after the events in Carnevale. Best to read Carnevale first to understand references made in Subterfuge.
