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

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.


3 Reasons You Should Read…

The Traitor’s Kiss by Erin Beaty


  • This book has been compared over and over to Mulan. We see that comparison, but like most stories in that realm, the important plot point to take away is a focus on a strong female heroine who breaks away from the patriarchal society she lives in. Sage is a smart, witty female who loves to read and also kicks some ass.
  • Three cheers for a nice paced romance! There’s no insta-love or love triangle here. The romance develops naturally and we are big fans of that.
  • You know we love reading a debut author’s work. We can’t wait to see where Erin Beaty takes this series and what else she writes in the future!

***Meet Erin Beaty***

Author Erin BeatyErin Beaty was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, which means she can’t drive a tractor, but she won’t eat veggies that come from a can. She graduated from the US Naval Academy with a degree in rocket science and somehow always ended up writing her study group’s lab reports. After serving in the fleet as a weapons officer and a leadership instructor, she resigned to pursue her side hobby of populating the Church of Rome. It still amazes her when other people want to hear the stories that come out of her head.

She and her husband have five children, two cats, and a vegetable garden and live wherever the navy tells them to go.

Erin Beaty is represented by Valerie Noble. Her young adult fantasy adventure, THE TRAITOR’S KISS, the first in a trilogy called The Traitor’s Trilogy, will be released May 9th, 2017

  1. Glad to see I wasn’t the only one who liked this book. I don’t see the Mulan thing, but I did love Sage’s sass .
