Big Huge Reader Contest - Day 7!


Love is My Sin by Julia Knight
Buy eBook from Samhain Publishing
Fantasy Romance

Break his oath, he loses his soul. Keep it—and he loses his heart.

Oathcursed, Book 2

Devastated crops force regent Lord Hunter to do the one thing he always swore he’d never do: form an alliance with the neighboring tribal kingdom. The oath to offer his beloved foster son in marriage, however, begins digging holes in his heart the moment he meets the intended bride. He can’t afford to fall in love with the alluring Reethan Chieftain, not if he’s to keep his oath—and his soul—intact.

Nerinna has always used her charms to manipulate her tribal chiefs, as tradition demands. But Lord Hunter’s honest, passionate nature intrigues her like no other man’s has before, challenging her cynical notions. Her wiles have no effect on him. In fact, her every action only seems to alienate him more.

Although their desire hangs thick and heavy in the air, Hunter keeps to the letter of his oath—until the god of justice decrees that Hunter must die. Nerinna knows of only one way to save him: offer herself in exchange. It’s a sacrifice Hunter can’t allow her to make, but to defy the priest means he must choose a side.

With his god—or against him.

With each post I add to my TBR pile. It's getting higher...or at least the list is getting longer. And expensive!

But they all sound so worth it, how can I refuse?

Tilly Greene said...

Sounds like these two face some serious issues and I know need to know they succeed - must read!

Suzette said...

So many books, so little money! LOL

How did this series come about? Was it a dream, Or was it just there like many authors say?

Deb830 said...

Hi Julia -

Like Kristabel I keep adding to my TBR pile and at this rate I'll never catch up. Congrats on your second book to your Oathcursed series.

Jean P said...

Oh my this sounds like a really good series. They have choices to make, and it doesn't sound like they can make them without consquences. Adding these to my every growing list!

Anonymous said...

This also sounds like a great read! I love the cover and I love the title!!! The excerpt was very interesting, left me wanting more, of course:)

Great cover!

Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. said...

This author hasn't kept up her blog, so I will leave my comment here. Sounds like a damned if you do, damned if you don't book.

Great blurb, makes you want to read more. LOL I'm like everyone else my TBR pile keeps getting bigger and bigger. Oh well what are we to do but read on.

Cathy M said...

I haven't had the pleasure of reading any of Julia's books yet, and this sounds like a wonderful fantasy series.

I noticed that Julia received an Epic Award for Oathcursed, what an amazing accomplishment.

You do realize that by the end of this event I'm going to go broke from trying to buy up all the fabulous books you're featuring *You should feel very bad...lol* No, I'm thrilled to find more new reads to add to my never-ending TBB list.

practimom said...

Tell me about it Anna! i going to end up spending 3x what an ereader cost ;)! but it is still worth it to get to know all the cool authors that i would not have known about without the help of contests and blogs like this one. this sounds like another winner...on top of the TBB pile!

Sherry said...

Loved the excerpt and the blurb and I love the fact that each book in the series is a stand alone read. I have a really bad habit of starting a series in the middle.

Nancy G said...

This sounds like another book going on my TBB list. I have Ilfayne's Bane in Mt. TBR.

desi said...

I love the cover of the book. It is something that would draw my attention.

Fabulous premise! Sounds awesome!

Haven't read a fantasy romance in a long time! I like meeting new authors like Julia Knight!

Julia Knight said...

Hi guys

Glad you all like the sound of it! Inspiration for the series...a mish mash of all sorts to be honest. I normally blame Johnny Depp :D(two of his films gave me inspiration)


Good luck

PS - and yes, I've been lax on my blog. I am a bad lady. Two lots of edits, galley proofs, kids, work....

Julia Knight said...

Oh and the world came second. First Ilfayne kind of popped into my head and wouldn't shut up. His ego insisted I write about him lol. Then the rest came along to keep him company :D The world grew as I wrote, although most of it didn't make it to the book. I've just finished another (unrelated) book in the same world.

Julia Knight said...

Using the tried and tested 'get a random number by asking daughter to pick a number between 1 and 31'.... the winner is....*drum roll*

Judy!


Congratz Judy. Email me at julia@juliaknight.co.uk, let me know if you wantthe e-book of Ilfayne's Bane or Love is My Sin and I'll get it straight to you.

Andrea I said...

Pamk said...

Carol L. said...

I blew my book budget a bit ago. :)
I'll just have to give up other things till I catch up. (never) lol I love books too much. This sounds like a catch 22 situation for Lord Hunter.Have to see what happens.
