Newly released as of today, A Kiss of Venom by Hailey Edwards is an absolute must read! Here is the description of this hot new release:
All’s fair in love and murder…
Betrayed by her lover and exiled from her clan home, Nicolette has carved herself a new identity from the heart of her old life. Hardened by grief and desperate to survive, she hones a new skill set…and the daggers that go along with it.
Armand is heir to the wealthiest clan in the Araneae Nation. His entire life is as mapped as his heritage. Tradition dictates his every decision, and the one choice he ever made for himself cost him the woman he loved.
When Nicolette is offered a contract she can’t refuse, she returns to Erania with deadly intentions. Her secrets are safe behind the façade she created. Or they would be if Armand would stop chipping at the cracks in her veneer.
One kiss ignites an old flame, and suddenly their history is in danger of repeating. Armand falls for Nicolette’s charade, but she can’t let a second chance at happiness distract her from her mission. Someone in the Araneidae nest is marked for death, and Nicolette aims to deliver.
I literally tore through the pages of this book at light speed. I could not get enough of the feisty chemistry between Armand and Nicolette. This fantasy romance promises and delivers with excitement, mystery, action, passion and more.
From the very start of this tale, Nicolette is a woman of mystery and danger. Dropping hints like breadcrumbs, you are gradually pulled into her background tale of woe that led up to making her into the deadly assassin that she has become.
The mystery surrounding her true motivation for arriving at the Araneidae nest is cloaked in suspense that keeps you urgently reading to know more.
Armand is immediately presented in a way that can only be described as a cocky, ladies man, but with the roguish charm that makes you want to melt into his arms. That persona is somewhat stripped away to reveal compassion, caring, and depth that makes you fall helplessly in love with him.
Their tale is hot and fiery from beginning to end, and I guarantee that after reading this book you won’t be able to rest until you have read the whole series!
