ARC Review - Assassin's Kiss by Sharon Kay!


Locking emotions away is how Scorpio survived years as a conscripted killer. Now, as a Lash Watcher, he uses the same lethal skills to help his fellow warrior demons maintain peace in the realms. When a mission goes awry, he finds himself a thousand miles from home with no weapons or comms. Injured and alone, he is taken in by a group of witches who know him well.

And want him dead.

Tessa’s affinity with metal makes her one of the most powerful witches in her coven. Her deepest wish is to stop the oppression of her people—a direct result of her former leader’s murder. She agrees to marry the chief of a rival coven, knowing it won’t be a love match. But she abandoned the idea of a soul-deep bond long ago. Especially one with the rough, former mercenary warrior who shows up and claims she belongs to him.

Even from behind bars, the longer Scorpio stays, the more he unsettles Tessa and she questions all she thought she knew. Choosing him will put everyone she cares for at risk. He’s nothing like she expected, and the last thing she could dare to want.


I FREAKING LOVED SCORPIO!! So Scorpio is the hero in Assassin's Kiss by Sharon Kay, and I found him to be incredibly intense. He was once a dangerous assassin, and now he tries to help his fellow demons to keep peace. When he is captured and taken prisoner by witches, he finds something he never expected...his mate! The moment he captures her scent, he wants her, even when he didn't know what she looked like. But once he sees her, his need for her becomes almost unbearable. I couldn't take my eyes from my ereader as I watched his exchanges with his beautiful witch Tessa. He wants her more and more with each exchange but the moment he finds out she is supposed to marry another, he knows he will stop at NOTHING to get Tessa to be his mate, in the full sense of the word. 

Scorpio wasn't only intense, but surprisingly patient and sweet to Tessa. Even when she unleashes her powers on him, he wants her. This story felt a lot like Kresley Cole's IAD stories. It captured my complete attention and had me biting my lip, and eager to see what would happen next. Its full of almost non-stop action and steamy banter, terrific characters, and one incredible plot! 
I actually enjoyed this book more than I did with the first one..and I honestly didn't think that was possible! I definitely want to see more in this series.

Assassin's Kiss gets a SENSATIONAL FIVE SHOOTING STARS! It truly is an exceptional story with one seriously macho, sexy demon, and a witch with attitude and sass! This is the type of paranormal romance that win awards.
