About this ebook

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.
The Kiss of Deception is the first book in Mary E. Pearson's Remnant Chronicles.

This book was addicting. The character development throughout was wonderful and showed a true human build. Lia, Kaden and Rafe each were such strong leads with well thought out backgrounds. I loved the pace of the book which was constantly progressing the story. I've come back to this book time and time again. If you're looking for a great series, this is it!

Hard to put down even when reading through half open eyelids. Grabbed me early on & never let go. I know a book is a winner when I miss the characters when I close the book. The mark of a great writer is to make the reader fall in love with their characters. Strong character development. Oh, & I'm over 50 so age knows no bounds here.

This had nothing truly spectacular… so why did I like it so much. It wrapped itself around me and wouldn't let go. So yes, I’m invested now.
