Author: Bethany Bliss
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Release Date: June 25, 2022
Cover Design: Madelene Martin
Lazarith is out for blood and though Empress Marilla tries to soothe the rival countries’ antsy calls to war, Kayda suspects her efforts will be futile and prepares to march into a battle she has been trained for her entire life.
 
Kayda at first is excited by the approaching battles, welcoming the distraction from her barely processed grief after losing her lover just a short year ago. However, she soon learns just how little it would take to be stripped of the rest of her loved ones as the fatalities grow.
 
Vince knew from the very beginning how catastrophic a war could be and had tried to warn her of the consequences it could bring to her country and to herself. He is unwilling to lose her and she is thankful for one thing this war brought her: clarity.
 
It helped her realize just how unwilling she is to lose him too.

I started writing when I was maybe twelve. I’m severely dyslexic and my writing was about as good as my
reading: just awful. However, I enjoyed writing and the creative ideas were there, even if the grammar wasn’t. I kept at it until I was happy with my results and passed it off to friends and family who could help me proofread. I try not to focus so hard on the grammar at first, just let my ideas flow and see where they take me.

Discovered as a maid who was willing to risk her life to help others, her status was changed to Lady when Marilla reclaimed the castle. She now serves the empress as her loyal medic and advisor. When Empress Marilla receives word of a possible epidemic killing citizens in the farthest reaches of the empire, she decides to send Cornelia out to investigate, but not without Blythe to guard her. Fascinated by Cornelia’s selflessness and compassion for those who think so little of her, he has been drawn to the advisor since she first treated his wounds long ago. His attraction to the mahogany skinned beauty goes deeper than the surface, though Cornelia is wary of his affections and intentions. Many men have wanted her, used her, and she expects Blythe to be no different. The longer they travel together however, the more they realize that everything is not how it appears.

A missing King, a headstrong Prince, and a Queen who can’t see past her grief makes for a bad combination.

 

The tension between the Unseelie and Seelie has turned into a full out war, one that Cora is unprepared to handle.

They’re constantly torn between their blossoming love and the war that’s growing each day.

 

When Noah makes the terrible decision to hunt down the King alone, Cora must see him safely to the frontlines of the Seelie army, although the journey is more dangerous than either of them bargained for. Especially when finding the King means crossing the border into the Dragon Lands as well.

 

Noah and Cora are stronger together, especially when they have each other’s backs in battle. But when death is on the line, and an eerie truth is revealed, will their love be strong enough to give the Unseelie a fighting chance in Faerie?

Glancing over my shoulder once and waiting a few seconds to ensure no one was coming, I let curiosity get the best of me. I slipped the brown tie off so I wouldn’t have to retie it and undid the paper wrapping around the bottle.

 

There was a clear liquid inside the bottle. I set it down on the dresser next to me and looked at the short note.

 

In case it all goes sideways…

 

Next to the short, ominous sentence was a symbol that froze my blood.

 

The sentence ended with a dark, shaded-in skull and crossbones.

 

The universal sign for poison.
