Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay
Publication Date: October 9th, 2012
All will be revealed for fans who have breathlessly awaited the sizzling sequel to Juliet Immortal. This time Romeo takes center stage and gets one chance, and one chance only, to redeem himself.
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.
(Summary from Goodreads)
Oh my God, guys, I love Juliet Immortal so much! The funny this is that I probably wouldn't have read it if one of my friends didn't lend it to me. But now it's one of my all time favorite books, particularly because it gave a more tortured and paranormal spin on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Romeo Redeemed is the sequel to Juliet Immortal and it's supposed to pick up where the first book dropped off. I love Romeo so much. I've told you guys before that I have a thing for broken characters. This version of Romeo is SO SO SO tortured and SO SO SO broken that I can't help but love him. Plus, look at that cover. Isn't it just lovely? Prettiest cover in the world.
