Release day: Kings Rising
Today is the official release of Kings Rising by CS Pacat (Captive Prince trilogy, book 3) (ebook and paperback, Penguin). Here’s the blurb:
In Kings Rising, Damianos of Akielos has returned. His identity now revealed, Damen must face his master Prince Laurent as Damianos of Akielos, the man Laurent has sworn to kill. On the brink of a momentous battle, the future of both their countries hangs in the balance. In the south, Kastor’s forces are massing. In the north, the Regent’s armies are mobilising for war. Damen’s only hope of reclaiming his throne is to fight together with Laurent against their usurpers. Forced into an uneasy alliance the two princes journey deep into Akielos, where they face their most dangerous opposition yet. But even if the fragile trust they have built survives the revelation of Damen’s identity—can it stand against the Regent’s final, deadly play for the throne?
CS Pacat dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I love high-octane escapism, adventure, swordfights, chases, escapes, true love, intrigue, high stakes—and homoerotica, themes of sex, power and sexuality. I also love enemies-to-friends-to-lovers stories, and characters who are powerful opposites. In the Captive Prince series, I wanted to combine these things, and tell the story of two enemy princes who fall in love: opposites who are at their best together, the hot-blooded warrior and the cool ice prince; the Machiavel and Alexander cutting through the Gordian knot.
