Gorgeous Cover Reveal
I'm so excited to show off this cover for my fellow Entangled publishing author: Crista McHugh!!! It's soooo gorgeous. I could stare at it all day...
Here's what the book is about:
The deadliest assassin in the empire just got too close to her target…
Azurha, a former slave turned deadly assassin, 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.
Titus Sergius Flavus has yet to master the powerful magic of his ancestors—magic he must wield if he’s to protect his people—but his father’s death has left him no choice. Rule the Deizian Empire and attempt to right his ancestors’ wrongs, or watch it fall to his greedy kin.
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 and kill the man she loves, or fail and forfeit both their lives.
Crista currently lives in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle with her husband and daughter, maintaining my alter ego of mild-mannered physician by day while she continues to pursue writing on nights and weekends.
Just for laughs, here are some of the jobs she’s had in the past to pay the bills: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actress, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant. She’s also a recovering LARPer. (blame it on her crazy college days)
