Today is my stop The Veiled Threat blog tour! And I couldn’t be more excited to share this book with you.
I was fortunate enough to get a review copy of this one, and I devoured it in about two days. I loved that both characters were strong female leads. No one has any time for demure ladies at the mercy of fate and whoever else decides it. The romantic tension is solid, the swashbuckling adventures are exciting, and the story is a wild ride. Check out the full summary below and check out some of the links to purchase (or win!) a copy.
The Veiled Threat
by Sophia Menesini
Genre: NA Fantasy/LGBT
Release date: July 2019
Captain Shea Lara is the current leader of The Veiled Duchess. The most feared pirate ship in all of Neried. And now, after completing her former mentor’s final score, she’s retiring. Everything seems to be coming to an end… Until a mysterious stranger drags her back into the fold with an offer for a score she can’t refuse. All she has to do is kidnap the crowned princess of the northern Queendom, Princess Joana of Arethusa. The prize is just within reach. But sparks fly as the two women collide. And an obscured threat that could upturn Shea’s entire world storms on the horizon. She’ll face it alone unless she can allow herself the support she needs from old and new allies alike. Something’s coming and Shea is at the center of it.
Shea turns her face away from that one, holding back the wince. Who cares what she thinks. Shea shouldn’t. It’s not like they know each other that well. But Shea’s been watching. Caen wasn’t wrong. And the more she’s watched her the more she feels like Lady Anavella at the ball and she can’t be that.
She’s not the love interest, this isn’t a story. This is a job. She runs her hand along the bars and turns back to Aster who looks as if he’d like to melt into the wooden boxes he’s leaning against.
“I guess that makes you the damsel in distress,” Shea mutters.
“Is that how you see me?” Joana coos tauntingly with a smug expression.
Shea snorts and smiles sweetly in return, “I would have said a profit, but a damsel is fine too.”
