The Kiss of Deception - Mary PearsonThe Kiss of Deception by Mary E Pearson

In this timeless new trilogy about love and sacrifice, a princess must find her place in a reborn world.

In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.

On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assasin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.

There’s rumours that the love triangle isn’t that bad! I’ll take it!

Despite the sounds of the love triangle (who do you pick? Jilted Prince or Assassin!?) & the fact that it’s the first in a series, the book definitely sounds too interesting to pass up. Hopefully it’s as good as it sounds! I’m so happy that I got an eARC! Thanks Henry Holt and Co!

  7. Ohhhh! The love triangle isn’t that bad? YES. Though as long as I like the characters, I’m not too bothered with love triangles. And it sounds too good, anyway. 😉

    Here’s mine

  8. I like the idea of fantasy more than the reality of it, but this does sound really good.

  9. The cover is gorgeous and the synopsis has me curious!

  10. This one is on my list as well. Can’t wait to read it! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  11. This sounds interesting. Love triangles don’t bother me. People act like you can’t have feelings for more than one person at a time.

  12. I hope you love this! I debated snagging this, but I just cannot start another series. If the reviews are awesome I might give it a shot–so I’ll be on the lookout for yours. I do love that cover, though.

  13. Oh wow, this sounds totally awesome! I may be alone in this, but I actually don’t mind triangles if they are done right. I’m adding this to my tbr. I hope you enjoy reading it! Thanks for stopping by My WoW.

  14. I am so excited for this one too! LOVE the cover!

  15. Hopefully the love triangle is actually not a thing because I HATE love triangles. I have an ARC of this one! Too bad the ARC doesn’t have the pretty final cover. I hope you love this one when you get a chance to crack open your eARC, Cyn! 🙂

    Check out my WoW post!

  16. Excited for this one!!! 🙂 Flawless taste, as always!

  17. I agree with your choice 100%!! I can’t wait to read this one!! I know some people that have already read it and everyone seems to love it so far!

  18. Totally the assassin… 😉 I mean, princes are all okay but they come with a lot of baggage (ie: ruling the kingdom). Assassins on the other hand are slinky and cool and will probably kill you. AH THE DECISIONS. Great pick. 😉

  19. I have been seeing this book around a lot lately and it sounds like a good read! I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  20. Great Pick, this sounds really interesting! Thanks for stopping by
