The Kiss of Deception by Mary E Pearson

Blurb from Goodreads:

A princess must find her place in a reborn world.

She flees on her wedding day.

She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor's secret collection.

She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.

She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.

The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can't abide. Like having to marry someone she's never met to secure a political alliance.

Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love.

Things I liked:

1) Lia- She is the main reason I really liked this book. She was one of those strong female characters who is not a cliche character at all. She knew what she wanted and how to get it. Yes she did make some questionable decisions but I feel like most people would in her situation.

2) The writing of this was so addictive. I like how you really didn't know which was which when you were reading. I rooted for both guys of course until I found out who was who.

3) Pauline- What a great friend. Definitely someone you need when you get into this situation.

Things I Was Not Fond Of:

1) I really was not fond of the ending but it wasn't so bad since the story does continue. Immediately after I started reading the second one. The ending made me sad but still I needed to know more.

My rating:  ♥♥♥♥♥
