Summary (from Random House Canada):
Seductive companion to the popular Juliet Immortal, in which former lovers—Romeo and Juliet—meet, not as true lovers, but truly as enemies.Cursed to live out eternity in his rotted corpse, Romeo, known for his ruthless, cutthroat ways, is given the chance to redeem himself by traveling back in time to save the life of Ariel Dragland. Unbeknownst to her, Ariel is important to both the evil Mercenaries and the love-promoting Ambassadors and holds the fate of the world in her hands. Romeo must win her heart and make her believe in love, turning her away from her darker potential before his work is discovered by the Mercenaries.While his seduction begins as yet another lie, it soon becomes his only truth. Romeo vows to protect Ariel from harm, and do whatever it takes to win her heart and soul. But when Ariel is led to believe his love is a deception, she becomes vulnerable to Mercenary manipulation, and her own inner darkness may ultimately rip them apart.
I love reading Stacey Jay's novels and after falling in love with Juliet Immortal last year, I just couldn't wait to see what would happen next in the companion novel! The cover for Juliet Immortal was absolutely gorgeous, so I wasn't sure if Random House could possibly create another cover just as beautiful... but wow! They sure have outdone themselves because I'm loving this one too!
If you still haven't read Juliet Immortal yet, you can read my review with my gushing thoughts on the novel. It's a great twist to Romeo & Juliet which I'm sure you would enjoy!
