Author: Brandie June
Release Date: October 4, 2022

SYNOPSIS:
Two crowns. Two kingdoms. One chance to rule.
Nor and King Casper are captured by the fay army and forced to face the

a mysterious prison while an even sinister fate is in store for Nor—a deadly
fay poison that reveals Nor’s true nature. She’s not only half-fay. She is Queen
Marasina’s heir.
Revealed to be like the very creatures she despises, Nor must not only find a
way to free Casper but also navigate a court that is as deadly as it is
beautiful. Her allies are few, and though Pel claims to want friendship, Nor
finds she cannot forgive his betrayal. As tensions mount and war looms
between the kingdoms, Nor must choose a side, before it’s too late.
In this epic conclusion to the Gold Spun duology, Nor discovers that a
glamour and a curse may be two sides of the same coin.

Knight's Oath Book Tour


 

Book Info:
Knight’s Oath (Knights of Enar #1) by Juliette Caruso
Genre: New Adult Fantasy Romance
Publishing Date: August 15, 2022

Synopsis:
When 20-year-old Eliana’s father orders her to court, it is with one purpose: to save their noble, destitute family through marriage to a wealthy suitor. Eliana would much rather be studying healing and making use of her rare magical talent for medicines, but there is no escaping his command. She has eight short weeks to find a match she can stomach, or else she’ll be married off to the cruel, despicable man of her father’s choosing.
Navigating court politics is difficult for nervous Eliana, who is determined to take up as little space as possible. Worst of all, she only has eyes for the Queen’s nephew, Corin: a brooding, rugged knight who is already betrothed to another. Though he returns Eliana’s feelings, he’s as trapped by duty as she is. But even as Corin struggles against his own family’s shackles, he is driven by a singular purpose: to rid the land of the bandits terrorizing the Queen’s people.
As the outlaws circle the capital city, Corin and Eliana turn their focus and their talents towards helping the vulnerable common folk who live outside the palace walls. But the bandits have a patron who aims to spread dissent amongst the crumbling ranks of the nobility. The more lives Corin and Eliana save, the more enemies they are both making… and the closer her father’s deadline draws.
This slow-burn friends-to-lovers explores an exciting new fantasy kingdom with subtle magic, steamy encounters, and danger lurking around every bend.
