Immortals After Dark:
Kiss of a Demon King: Rydstrom Woede and Sabine, the Queen of Illusions
There is only one thing that Rydstrom wants more then to meet his mate and that is to get his crown back! Sabine just wants to be free to make her own decisions and to have her own place with no one to answer to oh yeah and gold!!. Rydstrom is considered by all to be level headed and always reasons things out before acting. Sabine is anything but level headed and reasonable, she has no problems letting out her wrath, and having died many times she knows life can be short and feels the line between good and evil is “flexible”. It is foretold that Sabine is Rydstrom’s mate so she sets out to capture her man! Literally! Sabine captures Rydstrom using her powerful illusions and sticks him in the dungeon of his own castle! Here is where the battle of wills begins…
Rydstrom is the rightful King of the Rage Demons and for almost 1000 years Omort the Deathless has been perched on HIS throne terrorizing his people and destroying the lands. The only way to get back his throne is to kill Omort, but how do you kill someone who can’t be killed? Finally he has the means to get his throne back only to get abducted by Sabine and thrown in his own dungeon and she is determined to get pregnant by him. Rydstrom is just as determined to claim her as his on his terms not hers. With Sabine he loses all of his reasoning skills and patience, he starts acting before thinking and starts to consider there may be more important things then his crown.
Sabine has died many times over but thanks to her sister Melanthe she is always saved. To her there is nothing more precious than gold and freedom for her and her sister. As Omort’s sister she is kept at his side by the threat of her life and her sisters, she sees the only way to gain freedom is as Rydstrom’s queen and mother of his child. Sabine is strong willed and determined that Rydstrom will submit to her on her terms not his!
This is a book of clashing wills! There are power struggles galore and you don’t know who will come out on top literally. Just when one of them gets the upper hand the tides switch and the other now is on top. Sabine and Rydstrom drive each other crazy and neither trusts the other. Rydstrom tries to reform Sabine and she is just as determined to not be reformed -- she likes who she is! This book has just the right amount of tension and suspense waiting to see who will do what next! And will Rydstrom ever get his kingdom back?!
