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 assassin 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








This book blew me away.  I was going along reading it and then I hit page 300.  I went, WHAT IN THE WORLD, and found myself starting all over again.  I have never found myself so completely caught off guard and blown away by a twist in a book before.  Mary Pearson played me like a fiddle.  I truly believe that somehow she is a wizard at  writing- she knew exactly how I would imagine each character and then turned everything upside down.

This book is full of action, adventure, love, and nothing that I expected.  Hands down this is one of my favorite books of the year.  I could go on and on about how much I loved it- but instead, I want you to go out and get this book.  If you read any book this summer, make it the Kiss of Deception- you will NOT regret it.  This is a fabulous book and a perfect start to what I expect to be a series on my favorite's list.  Why are you still reading this review- go get this book- NOW!
