The time has finally come for Sabine, Queen of Illusions, to fulfill her destiny.  Sabine has survived many hardships and is more than ready for this particular destiny, especially when she can use it to give her more power.  Sabine knows that it is going to take a lot of persuasion to convince her demon that she is his ďoneĒ and to marry her, but she is never one to back down from a challenge.

Rydstrom Woede is the fallen Demon King of Rothkalina and he is more than ready to get his kingdom back from Omort.  Finally, he just might have found the source to get the one thing that will allow him to win this battle.  However Rydstrom was not expecting the detour that Sabine gave him on the way to collect it.  Now he is in his own dungeon and needs to figure out just what Sabine is up to and why.

Sabine knows all too well that just because you might be a favorite at court does not mean life is going to be easy.  Rydstrom and Sabine battle the lust between them while on opposite sides of the good/bad equation.  However once the tables have been turned can Rydstrom show Sabine just what he requires in a queen and can Sabine find a way to be what Rydstorm wants while getting what she desires too.  With more than just a kingdom at stake, Sabine and Rydstorm team up to become the ultimate winners in this battle of wills, strengths and passion.

Take one evil sorceress and one good, but fallen king and you have the ingredients for one of the more interesting couples ever.  Kiss of a Demon King shows that good and evil are not just black and white but also that fated love rules over all.  Sabine has kept herself pure, believe it or not, until the time was right for her to meet her mate.  Rydstorm has all but given up ever finding his fated mate, only to find her in someone he might not be able to trust.  The sparks that flew every time Sabine and Rydstorm were together showed me that it was going to be a bumpy ride to the altar.  Between plots that didnít always work like they should, mistrust and misunderstandings of behaviors and a passion that could not be ignored; I was captivated while watching Sabine and Rydstorm come to terms with their love and regain the power they both wanted.  The humor that was underlying the entire time gave Kiss of a Demon King that extra something that had me turning the pages rapidly.  I also have to say that kooky Nix was her usually insane self. 

Kiss of a Demon King is written so you donít have to have read the series up to know to enjoy Sabine and Rydstorm antics.  But you might be looking for the rest of the series after meeting the various secondary characters.  If you are looking for a paranormal that isnít all dark and broody, you canít miss with Kiss of a Demon King.
