Book Pimpage: One Thousand Kisses by Jody Wallace
Hey, Kids! Jody Wallace's newest release, One Thousand Kisses, is out at Samhain Publishing.
I'm a huge fan of Jody's and her writing. She is funny and smart. Her books are romantic and quirky, and filled with interesting characters. Here's the blurb for One Thousand Kisses (which I totally stole from her site):
Embor Fiertag, Primary of the Fey Realm, and Anisette Serendipity, Court intern, are foretold bondmates, but only Embor knows it. He hasn’t informed her of the prophecy because she doesn't seem to like him. At. All. At the same time, she assumes he disapproves of her. After all, her sister almost got him killed once.
An unsavory political strategy turns the Court against Embor, forcing Embor and Ani to flee to humanspace. With the aid of a scheming feline, they'll have to share their hearts if they're to have any hope of keeping the fabric separating the Fey and human realms intact.
Embor is a commanding leader, but is having all sorts of trouble getting Ani to see him as more than that without spilling the beans about the prophecy. What girl wants to be *told* who she'll end up with? And Ani is caught in the middle of political machinations that would make a White House insider weep. She has to learn to trust herself and Embor if they are to save the realm.
I've read 1000K, as well as the previous book set in this world, Survival of the Fairest (which you don't have to have read to follow 1000K, but buy it anyway ;). Jody has created a world of magic and intrigue like no other author I know.
Go buy Jody's books. Oh, and Beware of Gnomes!
