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.
Why I want to read it - This is one of the most beautiful covers ever!!! Sorry for the explosion, I just had to get that out my chest. The only book I've heard by Pearson is the first of the Jenna Fox Chronicles and I found it to be very thought provoking. The Kiss of Deception doesn't only sounds good, but it comes highly recommended by it's publicist's at Macmillan. I cannot wait for this one!
