Intrigue abounds in this hotly anticipated sequel to The Kiss of Deception!
Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save her life, Lia’s erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komizar that she has the gift, and the Komizar’s interest in Lia is greater than anyone could have foreseen.
Meanwhile, nothing is straightforward: there’s Rafe, who lied to Lia, but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom Lia always believed to be barbarians. Now that she lives amongst them, however, she realizes that may be far from the truth. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her sense of self, Lia must make powerful choices that will affect her country… and her own destiny.
Only a month and a bit until this baby comes out! Damn the cursed cliff hanger! The Kiss of Deception was actually kind of a mixed bag of emotions for me (my review here!), but by the end, it won me over. And I’m in desperate need of The Heart of Betrayal. Advance reviews are glowing balls of sunshines…
Oh, and I’m loving the cover! You will look very pretty on my shelf, book.
