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. (Goodreads)

I read The Kiss of Deception earlier this year, and absolutely adored the book.
I loved the storyline and characters and especially the mystery in the book.
Once I realized the cover of The Heart of Betrayal had been revealed,
I knew I had to make it my W.O.W pick.
SO super excited for this book!
If you haven't already read The Kiss of Deception, I highly recommend that you do so!

  1. I want to read Kiss of Deception but I'm slightly thrown off by the love triangle angle. Is it really as pronounced as it seems to be in the book summaries? Or is there a somewhat obvious choice of an OTP already? :)

    1. I'm not a big fan of love triangles at all, but this one wasn't bad. I chose a side pretty early on, and I think it really was the more obvious side. The book is a really great read!

    2. I was hoping there would be an obvious pairing already. The love triangle's the only one keeping me from reading this book. Knowing what I know now, I might be able to give this book a chance, finally. lol :) Thanks, Christy. :)

  2. OOoh nice! I still need to read Kiss of Deception but I am positive that I'll love it! I can't wait for this one either! ;)

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. I still have to read The Kiss of Deception, heard loads of great things about it, (even the love triangle) and I did love The Adoration of Jenna Fox, so I'm bound to love it. :)
