about

In a historically inspired fantasy realm, the apprentice to a matchmaker becomes a spy for the army to uncover a treasonous plot and finds herself entangled in a romance with a soldier.

"One of the most hotly anticipated young adult fantasy reads of 2017." -Bustle

"An action-packed, expertly plotted story, drenched in double crosses and intrigue, with an irresistible heroine and a sweet and sexy romance." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

An obstinate girl who will not be married.
A soldier desperate to prove himself.
A kingdom on the brink of war.

What makes her unfit to be a lady, makes her a brilliant spy-but can she spot another?

With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what they'd call a lady-which is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls-and on the soldiers escorting them.

As the girls' military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trust-and Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.

With secret identities and a tempestuous romance, Erin Beaty's novel, The Traitor's Kiss, is a classic story with an espionage twist.

Both epic and intimate, a semi-old-fashioned alternative to the wave of inexplicably lethal superheroines and their smoldering love triangles." -Kirkus Reviews

"This is an action-packed, expertly plotted story, drenched in double crosses and intrigue, with an irresistible heroine and a sweet and sexy romance. A late-breaking twist gives way to a final act that will leave readers eager for subsequent books in this planned trilogy." -Publishers Weekly , starred review

"Complex characterization, deftly layered adventure story, and [a] balanced blend of political maneuvering, romantic interludes, and action scenes." -Kirkus Reviews

"Beaty balances a taut web of deceit . . . readers will be carried away by the mystery." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB)

"A debut novel that blends fantasy, romance, and battlefield action. . . . A slow burn YA fantasy with clever genre mixing." -School Library Journal
