Today’s contest is for a pre-order of Megan Hart’s amazing Virtue and Vice. If you haven’t read this series I really encourage you to do so. The Order of Solace series is fantasy with a deeply historical feel. It’s sumptuous and sensual, vivid with characters that live and breathe on the page. I’ve loved each one. Megan’s writing is always incredible. Detailed. Beautiful and painful all at once. She’s quite truly one of the most talented writers out there and I’m not just saying that because she’s my BFF. I highly encourage you to check these books out! (as well as her others)
I love this cover! Sexy and he’s got actual chest hair too!
Years ago, lowly kitchen slag Notsah stole breadâ€“
—and while fleeing the King’s Guard, she burst into the private chambers of the very man she was stealing from. Prince Jarron Bydelay, scarred by a hereditary illness, wasn’t expecting an audience to his pleasure. But when Notsah threw herself at his feet, he surprised himself by showing her mercy and dismissing her pursuer, Erekon, Captain of the King’s Guard. Erekon had his own reasons for wanting Notsah captured, but he dared not disobey a prince…
Ten years later, Notsah has returned to the palace as Sister Redemption, Handmaiden to the new King—Jarron, a man in desperate need of solace. She hasn’t forgotten Jarron’s kindness, but it’s not her place to remind him of the past. Uncomfortable with the attention his position brings, he’d rather spend time with advisors than in the pleasantries of court—and refuses a wife, fearful of passing on his illness to a child. But soon he suspects he has fallen for his beautiful and talented Handmaiden. He might not remember her past—but Erekon does. And as the country moves toward war, he is determined to use her to get what he wants from his new king. Now, if Jarron learns her secret, she’ll lose the only man she’s ever loved—and if she doesn’t tell him, he’ll never truly love her back…
