Tangled Web

(The first book in the Deizian Empire series)
A novel by

The deadliest assassin in the empire just got too close to her target...

Azurha has just been offered the ultimate challenge - seduce, then murder the new Emperor. But Titus is not the tyrant his forefathers were, and his radical ideas might be the glimmer of hope the empire needs.

More than just Titus' ideas hold Azurha captive. Night after night, he awakens desires she thought lost, and uncovers the magic of her hidden lineage. As her deadline approaches, Azurha is forced to make an impossible decision - complete her job by killing the man she loves, or fail and forfeit both their lives.

"The chemistry between Azurha and Titus burns up the pages and kept me reading into the night. This is the single hottest book I've read all year!" -- NYT Bestselling Author Katee Robert

Easily read in a single sitting, this spellbinding tale will be welcomed with open arms by readers, who will thank the gods there is a sequel." -- 4 Stars, RT Book Reviews
