For fans of ACOTAR and From Blood and Ash, this steamy enemies-to-lovers adventure about an outlaw wildmage trying to restore his family’s honor and the broken-hearted guard hired to escort him is impossible to put down!
Lord Vethe knows he isn’t one of the good guys.
Ever since he was old enough to control his illegal wildmage talents, Vethe has done horrible things to support his once-noble family. When his aunt hires a guard to help Vethe retrieve a long-lost contract and bring in some extra coin, Vethe expects the journey to be short and painful. He’s not expecting the guard to be a beautiful woman who looks at him like she wants to punch him.
And, if she discovers the secrets lurking in his family’s past, she just might decide to kill him.
Lyria Guardia let her family down and got her heart broken.
After she discovers her boyfriend in bed with another woman, Lyria limps back to the family and Guild she’d abandoned three years ago. Desperate to prove herself, she accepts a lowly escort mission: Drag a spoiled nobleman through the abandoned and supposedly harmless Demon Forest. But Lord Vethe, the nobleman she’s guiding, is far more infuriating and intriguing than she was expecting. Lyria doesn’t know if she can get through this entire mission without strangling him.
Or kissing him.[Read more…]
