"I can say, without a doubt, that A Promise of Fire is going on my keeper shelf...I cannot remember the last time I wanted to both savor and devour a book." ― Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

KINGDOMS WILL RISE AND FALL FOR HER...
BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP IT

Catalia "Cat" Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods-and her homicidal mother-have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever.

Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm-until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin's fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone.

The Kingmaker Chronicles:
A Promise of Fire (Book 1)
Breath of Fire (Book 2)

She met her husband while studying abroad, and the family now includes two bilingual children, who will soon be correcting her French. Connect with her at www.amandabouchet.com.

Review:

"High fantasy is a rare find in romance - complex world-building and political machinations can get in the way of a central, essential love story - but Bouchet skillfully melds the genres while crafting a sexy, emotional romance. Griffin and Cat are beautifully matched - together, her magic and his might make for a sparkling read. A Best Romance of the Month." - The Washington Post

"Debut author Bouchet tells a swashbuckling tale through Cat's irreverent, diffident, yet still somehow buoyant first-person point of view; this is an exquisite high-fantasy romance with masterful worldbuilding based on Greek mythology. An exciting fantasy/romance debut: action-packed, emotionally charged, and skillfully plotted." - Kirkus Starred Review

"Give this to your Game of Thrones fans. They will love the political plays, the dragons, and the adventure. Bouchet is a debut author to watch." - Booklist Starred Review

"OH MY GOSH. I haven't been so blown away in a while... Take a chance on A Promise of Fire. I swear, you'll thank me later, gushing and singing your own praises about this amazing new series. Well done, Ms. Bouchet. Well done." - Romance Junkies

"Fantasy romance at its finest! This book has it all: A heroine full of spunk and spark, a hero full of mystery and masculinity, and an epic story full of intrigue and action. You will fall in love with these delicious characters. This book is utterly breathtaking!" - Darynda Jones, New York Times bestselling author of the Charley Davidson series

"An epic, sweeping novel of romance, magic, mythology and war, A Promise of Fire was simply awesome!" - The Romance Reviews, 5 Stars Top Pick

"A Promise of Fire is one of the best books I've read in years... This is something quite new in a pile of the same old same old. So if you want to be transported into a fantasy kingdom, don't miss out on this story. Reviewer Top Pick!" - Night Owl Reviews

"Every summer should have one hotly anticipated read and for romance fantasy fans this year that read should be A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet. A perfect blend of adventure and love story with a fantastic hero and heroine at its center, this is a not to be missed story of gods and goddesses, magic, prophecies and the power of true love." - Heroes & Heartbreakers

"I can say, without a doubt, that A Promise of Fire is going on my keeper shelf. I want more of these characters and I want more of this world. I cannot remember the last time I wanted to both savor and devour a book, and Bouchet's writing is so engaging and magical that I wish she had some sort of backlist I could dive into for the next few months. If you're even slightly tempted by this review or from the chapter one excerpt, buy this book." - Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

"A sexy, mysterious fantasy that straddles the line between mythic adventure and paranormal sizzle." - Damon Suede, award-winning author of Bad Idea
