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

Assassin's Kiss (Watcher's Kiss, #2)He is a demon who used to kill for love, but the former mercenary, now a Lash Watcher has never been evil in spite of the pain he has caused. Scorpio knows pain, he knows what it’s like to be controlled, like a puppet dancing over a raging inferno, but that is his secret to tell or keep. After an operation has gone very wrong, Scorpio finds himself transported, injured and bleeding to Bronwy, a witch’s coven who remember him well for the death of their leader and consequent destruction of their village. Now locked away, his powers bound, what will be his fate? Never could he have imagined that an old curse would come back to torture him, mind, body and soul, but there she was, his true mate and she despised him, just like the witch who cursed him said.

Tessa is powerful, but this demon unnerves her with his stare, his deep voice and the kindness he seems to possess. Is it a trick so she will let down her guard and he can escape, or worse, kill off the coven? Things are bad enough since dark magic has declared war on her coven. Now there is a murdering monster who acts like a gentleman, except for saying “Mine” like a possessive child. As danger once again rears its ugly head in Bronwy, something must be done. Alone the witches are no match for the dark evil of Damian and his coven, but with Scorpio on their side, they may have a chance to turn the tables and win back all they have lost. He swears he will stay, he will fight for them, for Tessa and protect her at all costs, these are not the words of an animal, but those of a man who understands being the underdog, of a warrior willing to fight to the end for love. What does he hide deep within that could explain his past treachery? Follow Tessa and Scorpio as one powerful and semi-broken demon and one feisty, yet powerful witch face magic, mayhem and a chance for love against the odds and another witch’s curse.

Assassin’s Kiss by Sharon Kay is filled with the energy of Ms. Kay’s seemingly unlimited imagination. The world she has crafted is filled with magical beings, the eternal battle of good versus evil and the promise of finding an everlasting love between two unlikely mates. Scorpio is one of the more “refined” of Ms. Kay’s creations, there is a gentleness that comes from him even in his demon rage. Tessa is one tough cookie, ready to give whatever it takes for her people. Together, they make one sizzling hot team, hotter even than demon fire itself! Enter Ms. Kay’s world for the story, stay for the romance!

I received an ARC edition from Sharon Kay in exchange for my honest review.
