** DO NOT highlight and read the synopsis below if you haven’t read The Kiss of Deception! It contains major spoilers! **
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.

This cover! Oh gosh, I love it so much! If that’s what the Kingdom of Venda looks like, I can’t wait to read more about it! :D I love the title, too! I have so many theories just based on this alone, and it makes me twice as anxious! What’s going to happen?!The wait time until release day isn’t too bad… July is fairly soon. It’ll still be painful, but I’m glad it’s close by – I NEED to know what happens next!
