Second Sky to publish two adult fantasy romance titles by Kaylie Smith
Second Sky are delighted to announce that they will publish two adult fantasy romance titles by author Kaylie Smith.
Consultant Associate Publisher Jack Renninson at Second Sky, has acquired World English-language rights (including audio) for two adult fantasy romance titles by Kaylie Smith, author of young adult fantasy A RUINOUS FATE. The deal was negotiated with Emily Forney at Bookends Literary.
Set in a magical New Orleans, the first book follows a young woman who enters a deadly competition in a haunted gothic mansion, striking a bargain with a handsome and mysterious spirit in order to survive challenges inspired by the nine circles of hell and uncover the secrets of the house.
The second book will feature another dangerous magical game, held in an Italian palazzo.
The first title will publish in September 2024.
‘Kaylie’s writing is deliciously dark and completely irresistible, perfect for fans of CARAVAL and THE NIGHT CIRCUS. Get ready to experience a shiver of fear and desire as you enter a place where nothing is as it seems, and both your wildest dreams and deepest nightmares can become reality.’
‘I am so excited to be able to bring these haunting romances to life with Second Sky. These books are a love letter to all my favorite spooky things and you can expect plenty of blood, romance, and egotistical ghosts abound. I cannot wait to partner with Bookouture on this exciting new adventure and I hope these characters haunt you as much as they have me these last couple of years.‘
