Nicolette is on a mission, coerced into trying to assassinate the Maven of Erania. Returning there brings her face to face with her past in a way she never thought would happen.
Armand, the Mavens brother, cant shake the feeling of recognition when Nicolette comes before the court. Why is she the one to awaken feelings he buried long ago?
A quick, great read. Novella in the Araneae world, with smutty fluff, action and suspense.

A Kiss of Venom is the latest installment in Hailey Edwards romantic fantasy series. The Araneae Nation series is one that has recently come to my attention and I’ve read most books in the series. With A Kiss of Venom, I highly recommend that you read the previous books in the series in order to get a full picture of the world that Edwards has created, without it you may feel lost.

A Kiss of Venom focuses on Lady Nicolette who has returned (in disguise) to her home. She’s on a mission as an assas

4.5 stars. Review originally published 2/17/14 at twimom227.com. I received a copy of this title for an honest review.

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of the world created by Hailey Edwards in her Araneae Nation series. When I was offered the opportunity to read this novella, I was quite excited to get back to the Araneidae people. I love Lourdes and Rhys, and even catching glimpses of them made my day. I also am quite fond of Henri, as he plays a major role in the fourth novel of the series (actua

I really enjoyed this novella. I probably liked it more than any Araneae Nation story I have read in awhile. The reason: it feels like the series went back to its roots. We’re taking a break from the plague and the zombie infection thing and we’re refocusing on Maven Loures’ clan. Specifically, it’s the second chance at love story for her brother Armand and the only woman he has ever cared about.

Nicollete once loved Armand with all of her heart, but when she was caught in his bed 10 years ago, h

I really did not expect very much from this novella since it was only around 100+ pages but the story was done well, no real details were left out, the reader is kept involved at almost all time.

The problem in trying to review this is there is nothing I can really add that is not in the synopsis already. This is a story of love, hate and revenge only none of those emotions seem to play out the way you would expect (and I loved it).

This is a story you can finish in one night but unless you have r

Armand & Nicolette's story was an excellent read. Their past history had me absolutely intrigued. With each page I was eager to find out more about them. His out right flirting and her unwanted jealous was just fun. A Kiss of Venom was exactly what I needed. I was in a bit of a reading slump and it certainly refreshed me. With the Araneae Nation Ms. Edwards has created vast and dangerous world. But is also shines with love and hope. This was a sweet story, I definitely recommend this one.

I downloaded Kiss of Venom as a free novella from Amazon. This short story is part of the Araneae series). Loved this look into Armand and his past. I loved his character in A Hint of Frost, so it was especially great to get this insight. A wonderful short story. The more I read, the more I enjoy this writer.

I really enjoyed this little story. I loved Nicolette and her daughter - and I melted for Armand. Mmm. The plot was interesting enough to keep me hooked, funny and sweet and difficult. The only thing that surprised me was how quickly it ended! I hope we get to see them in the next full-length novel by Edwards.

I felt a bit lost, and I have read books in this series. Oh well. That was not even why I gave up.
