"He owns you. Whatever he tells you to do you do".

One year. No future. A past that won't go away.

Lennox "Nox" Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn't mean Satan himself isn't watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken


"He owns you. Whatever he tells you to do you do".

One year. No future. A past that won't go away.

Lennox "Nox" Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn't mean Satan himself isn't watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed?

"New rules."

Alex "Charli" Collins found pleasure with Nox like she'd never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that Infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide?

Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?

With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, the depth of this new, epic contemporary romance reaches new levels and will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next.
Have you been Aleatha'd?

CUNNING is a full-length novel, 360 pages, and the second of five books in the INFIDELITY series.

Summer's Book Blog - Illona Townsel
"I loved Betrayal, but Cunning is even better! The twists and turns have a big smile on my face. I couldn't wait to figure out the next move as Aleatha played with my emotions. We all need more Nox Demetri!"

If you know me or have any contact with me at all (ie random people in stores or at work) I will tell you about one of my favorite authors Aleatha Romig. I will go on and on about her Consequence series and the mind shattering that went on. I will now be telling you about her newest series the Infidelity series. Just be warned! Cunning (Book #2 in the Infidelity 5-book series) only enforced my love of Aleatha's work. As I was reading I'm like... "wow ok I understand where this book is going", "I love this story", "Nox and Charli can make it work", etc. I had a little nagging voice at the back of my head that was telling me "Something is coming..there is always something coming.. You will be Aleatha'd." I was like nah not this book in the series it is pretty straight forward, no big surprises, I'm good" AND THEN BAM, I am on the floor saying,"HUH, WHO, NO....WHAT JUST HAPPENED... I just got Aleatha'd that is what happened." I can't go into much of the story line of it because I don't want to spoil it for you. I will just say get this book NOW! You must have read the first book in the series first.. Betrayal.

Charli goes behind Miss Alexandria Collins and a different facet of Her and Lennox Demetri Surfaces in this book. The Rules have certainly changed. And way for the better !!  The story goes through many sharp turns and curves. Alex and Nox coming closer, drifting apart, building trust , doubting each other , yet their love continues to strengthen , then the end happens and you're left with a gaping mouth.... I want to say more....much much more , but I cant so I'll say this . what we see in Nox and Alex 's love story , is just a tip of the iceberg. The elaborate behind the scenes story is one of intrigue, politics, revenge, murder, Guilt,Betrayal and Cunning ! Nox and Alex are mere pawns in a game of chess being played between power hungry families . For the record- I Hate Alton and Oren ! nobody can knit an elaborate tale like Aleatha can . threads are spreading like tentacles and I can't Wait to see how they intertwine in the next book to come together Again

I was very excited to get reacquainted with Charli and Nox. Then I started the first chapter and wanted to punch Nox in the face repeatedly for a good chunk of the beginning chapters. It was like he was a totally different man than the one we met in Betrayal. As their story unfolds glimpses of the man from Del Mar start to shine through. True to the style of storytelling we've come to know and love from Aleatha Romig, this installment is packed with twists and turns. Pieces of the puzzle are revealed through Adelaide's POV. My mind is trying to will the story away from where I think it's going. But with AR you just never know and that is a double edged sword. She makes you love, she makes hate, she makes you hurt and in the end I know she'll make it all worth it.

Charli and Nox are together but will they make it through the year? With her family and his past, will trust become a deciding factor? What happens when he finds out who she really is? Will he tell he what happened to his first wife? This story picks up where book one ended and doesn't let you go until you are on the edge of the cliff ready to jump. But you have to wait until May for book three. I am loving this series maybe more than the Consequences series. Nope, but it's close. Love Aleatha Romig and her writing style. She just needs to write faster, no I want it right not quick.
