It’s time for our every-other-month Smart Bitches Book Club selection!
This month, we were craving some fantasy romance, and we picked a much-recommended and much-loved title, and I cannot wait to talk about it with you.
Our June selection: Radiance by Grace Draven!
If you haven’t read this book before, I hope you’ll give it a try. For me, it was an ideal blend of fantasy and romance, with a friends-to-lovers plot between two characters I really, really liked. Here’s the cover copy:
THE PRINCE OF NO VALUE
Brishen Khaskem, prince of the Kai, has lived content as the nonessential spare heir to a throne secured many times over. A trade and political alliance between the human kingdom of Gaur and the Kai kingdom of Bast-Haradis requires that he marry a Gauri woman to seal the treaty. Always a dutiful son, Brishen agrees to the marriage and discovers his bride is as ugly as he expected and more beautiful than he could have imagined.
THE NOBLEWOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
Ildiko, niece of the Gauri king, has always known her only worth to the royal family lay in a strategic marriage. Resigned to her fate, she is horrified to learn that her intended groom isn’t just a foreign aristocrat but the younger prince of a people neither familiar nor human. Bound to her new husband, Ildiko will leave behind all she’s known to embrace a man shrouded in darkness but with a soul forged by light.
Two people brought together by the trappings of duty and politics will discover they are destined for each other, even as the powers of a hostile kingdom scheme to tear them apart.
I’ll be posting the Book Club Chat time as soon as I have it, too, so stay tuned for that. I hope you enjoy Radiance – I can’t wait to hear what you think!
