Overview

The deadliest assassin in the empire just got too close to her target…

Azurha, a former slave turned deadliest assassin in the empire, has just been offered the ultimate challenge—seduce, then murder the new Emperor. But Titus is not the tyrant his forefathers were, and his radical ideas might be the glimmer of hope the empire needs.

Titus Sergius Flavus has yet to master the powerful magic of his ancestors—magic he must wield if he’s to protect his people—but his father’s death has left him no choice. Rule the Deizian Empire and attempt to right his ancestors’ wrongs, or watch her fall to his greedy kin.

More than just Titus’ ideas hold Azurha captive. Night after night, he awakens desires she thought lost, and uncovers the magic of her hidden lineage. As her deadline approaches, Azurha is forced to make an impossible decision—complete her job and kill the man she loves, or fail and forfeit both their lives.

Meet the Author

Growing up in small town Alabama, Crista McHugh relied on storytelling as a natural way for her to pass the time and keep her two younger sisters entertained. Of course, that also means she’s inclined to suffer some of the same maladies that plague many southern writers like overuse of simile and metaphor, exaggeration, melodramatic writing style, and the ever-popular long-winded sentence.

She currently lives in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle with her husband and daughter, maintaining her alter ego of mild-mannered physician by day while she continues to pursue writing on nights and weekends.

Just for laughs, here are some of the jobs she’s had in the past to pay the bills: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actress, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant.

And she’s also a recovering LARPer. (She blames it on her crazy college days)

    TANGLED WEB is a great story. I've read other books by McHugh and always enjoyed them but this was my favorite, so far. I love the world she creates - a merger of magic, Romanesque time frames, paranormal other-worldliness with a hint of steampunk-like technology. Her characters are wonderfully likable and yet edgy. Azurha is strong and even she is a bit surprised to find she can love after growing up a slave and spending her free years as an assassin. She begins almost immediately to care for Titus. Titus surprises everyone with great strength as a ruler, beyond what his bookish childhood would imply. They find each other through the worst possible situation but love is fated for them. The book is full of hot sex which, for me, enhanced an already rich story. I finished the book anxious for book two!

    Rating: 4.5

    Heat Rating: Hot: Detailed sex scenes, profanity or graphic violence.

    Azurha's character is very weel described. The use of Roman sounding names got a little tedius,
    and Azurha's innner struggles got to be somewhat repetative. I look forward to the next book in the series.

    Tense, Exciting SF/Fantasy Romance

    I bought Tangled Web on a whim, and I am glad that I did. The characters are well-developed, and the fictional world unusual. There was great chemistry between Titus and Azurha. My only complaint is the surprising number of grammatical and typographical errors which mar the text; there is at one every chapter; in a few places, sentences randomly change font.

    I hope McHugh returns to the Deizian Empire. I want more stories!
