KINGDOMS WILL RISE AND FALL FOR HER…
“Cat” Catalia Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods—and her homicidal mother—have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever.
BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP IT
Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm—until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin’s fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone.
Praise for A Promise of Fire:
“High fantasy is a rare find in romance — complex world-building and political machinations can get in the way of a central, essential love story — but Bouchet skillfully melds the genres while crafting a sexy, emotional romance. Griffin and Cat are beautifully matched — together, her magic and his might make for a sparkling read.”
—Sarah MacLean for The Washington Post
“Debut author Bouchet makes a very strong start to her Kingmaker Chronicles, combining a richly developed political landscape defined by the influence of powerful ruling families, meddling gods, and destiny with a broad exploration of the relationship between might and magic in a social context.”
“Give this to your Game of Thrones fans. They will love the political plays, the dragons, and the adventure. Bouchet is a debut author to watch.”
—Booklist, STARRED Review
“[An] exquisite high-fantasy romance with masterful worldbuilding based on Greek mythology. An exciting fantasy/romance debut: action-packed, emotionally charged, and skillfully plotted.”
