    Summary

    Phil Coulson has a problem.

    Since his wife died, he’s lived on a remote colony world, raising his children and recovering from the wound that nearly killed him. Now, his old commander needs him back on the job; he's heard troubling rumors of an invasion force that could threaten every world in the Galactic Alliance. But Phil’s two daughters have no other family; what would happen to them if Phil died too? They need another parent, so Phil contacts Earth’s best marriage brokers.

    Clint Barton has a problem.

    Since he escaped from his ne’er-do-well brother Barney and the criminal gang that tried to force him to join, he’s been living under the protection of Natasha Romanoff, the Red Room’s most valued agent. But Barney has caught wind of him again, and even the Black Widow can’t protect him from the powerful crime syndicate that is after him now. Clint needs a place to lie low, somewhere so far away from Earth that his enemies can’t find him. So Natasha suggests that he consider the benefits of an arranged marriage on a faraway planet.

    It seems like a mutually beneficial arrangement. But can two independent men move past their secrets and build a real life together?

    Summary

    Being glared at by Nick Fury, the Queen’s Own, was not something most Heralds survived, but Phil was sadly used to it. Arching an eyebrow, Phil glared right back. “Nick,” he said flatly. “Don’t pull me off this. I’m doing good work at the Border.”

    “I know you are,” Nick agreed. For a second, his expression softened. “I just need you back here. Something’s coming. I can see it on the horizon, and I need someone to help me figure out what it is before it gets here.”

    Phil is a Herald of Valdemar. It is his job to keep his home and the people in it safe and protected, and it is a job he does well. When he returns home from his latest mission, however, Phil finds things have changed. There is political intrigue everywhere and trouble with the neighbouring kingdom of Karse, and Nick Fury, the Queen's Own, needs Phil's help in uncovering it all. Add in the new Herald Clint Barton, and things are bound to get complicated. Particularly since Phil is supposed to be mentoring Clint, not slowly falling in love with him...

    (You do not need to be familiar with Heralds of Valdemar to read this fic).
