Review - ASSASSIN'S KISS by Sharon Kay

Assassin's Kiss (Watcher's Kiss #2) 
by Sharon Kay

Warrior Scorpio finds himself alone on a botched op. No weapons, no communication devices, injured…and instantly recognized by a group of witches who want him dead.

Witch Tessa promises to marry a rival leader to save her people. But she never planned on the new prisoner in her coven. Scorpio, a rough, former mercenary makes the outrageous claim that 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.

Assassin's Kiss (Watcher's Kiss, #2)Assassin's Kiss by Sharon Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Assassin's Kiss by Sharon Kay is the second book in the Watcher's Kiss Series. You can read this one as a standalone, although I recommend starting with Tainted Kiss (book 1) because you definitely will not want to miss Arawn and Ria's story.

Ms. Kay never ceases to amaze me with this fantastical (is that a word?) world she has created. You get witches, demons (the good kind), elves, and all sorts of paranormal beings in this series. The writing is strong, with an amazing eye for detail, and has some of the most engaging characters I've ever come across. If you're a fan of JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series you will love this one as well.

In Assassin's Kiss we're introduced to Scorpio, a former mercenary, who finds himself being held prisoner by a witch's coven. He must now atone for his past mistakes, which isn't going to be easy considering the repercussions that came from a job he had to carry out years ago. Most members of the coven are out for blood, an eye for an eye. They've suffered so much and are seeking revenge.

Tessa, a young witch with an affinity for metal, instantly despises Scorpio. After all, he killed their former leader, leaving room for dark magic to grow and an evil leader to rise to power and kick Tessa and her coven off their land. There's no room for discussion in her mind, he must pay. Scorpio is clearly a cold, heartless murderer, right? Hmm, maybe not. The saying, "Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future" comes to mind. And that's something Tessa and her coven will have to realize.

If you're looking to escape into a world so unlike anything you've ever read, then look no further. Ms. Kay delivers action, romance, and suspense in each book she writes and Assassin's Kiss is no exception. I was hooked from the very first page and you will be too!
