Today, I am very excited to announce the release of The Fiery Crown by Jeffe Kennedy. It’s the second book in her new fantasy romance series – Forgotten Empires.
I really enjoyed reading The Orchid Throne last year and so rated it 4 stars. However, Jeffe Kennedy is still a fairly new-to-me author, not having read any of her other books. So I was a bit surprised to receive an e-copy of The Fiery Crown earlier this month. I’m so pleased that I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it. You can read my review here.
Keep reading to find out more about Jeffe, this book and the Forgotten Empires series.
I hope that you decide to add The Fiery Crown to your cascading TBR pile poste haste. 😉
The Fiery Crown (Forgotten Empires #2) by Jeffe Kennedy
A desperate alliance. A struggle for survival. And a marriage of convenience with an epic twist of fate come together in Jeffe Kennedy’s The Fiery Crown.
WILL THEIR LOVE STAND THE TEST OF TIME
Queen Euthalia has reigned over her island kingdom of Calanthe with determination, grace, and her magical, undying orchid ring. After she defied an empire to wed Conrí, the former Crown Prince of Oriel—a man of disgraced origins with vengeance in his heart—Lia expected the wizard’s prophecy to come true: Claim the hand that wears the ring and the empire falls. But Lia’s dangerous bid to save her realm doesn’t lead to immediate victory. Instead, destiny hurls her and Conrí towards a future neither could predict…
OR TEAR THEIR WHOLE WORLD APART?
Con has never healed after the death of his family and destruction of his kingdom—he’s been carefully plotting his revenge against his greatest enemy, Emperor Anure, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. When Lia’s spies gather intelligence suggesting that Anure is planning an attack against Calanthe, Con faces an agonizing choice: Can he sacrifice Lia and all she holds dear to destroy the empire? Or does his true loyalty exist in the arms of his beguiling, passionate wife—’til death do they part?
