Kissed by a Demon Spy
by Sharon Kay
This novella is a companion piece to the Solsti series and can be read as a stand-alone.
Kidnapped as a teen and forced into a life of sexual slavery, Garnet vowed long ago to do whatever she could to spare others her fate. When karma comes full circle with an offer of freedom for her and her young son, she jumps at the chance.
Masquerading as a village innkeeper, Aden keeps his espionage work secret from the gentle pixies he lives among. Using his skills to prevent a group of vicious demons from attacking the innocent, his world is draped in mist, shadow, and danger.
Steeped in shame, Garnet is loath to share her past with Aden. But Aden senses a sweet, loyal strength in her that no amount of horror can erase. His dangerous work is the opposite of the stability Garnet craves. Yet Aden’s patience and strength make him the hero she never had. When the enemy targets them, Garnet and Aden realize that honesty is the truest form of courage.
I love the Solsti series and this novella is set in that world but can totally be read as a stand-alone but I do recommend that lovers of fantasy romance check this wonderful series out. This story centers around Garnet and her son, both having just been freed from a life of slavery. Aden owns the village inn in the town that Garnet was raised in and where she takes refuge. Garnet is such a sweet and strong woman who has had to survive years as a sexual slave, always fearing death for both herself and her young son. Garnet returns to her home town hoping to live the rest of her life free of fear but finds it hard to let go of the shame she feels especially when she finds herself attracted to Aden. Aden is a demon sent to this village to spy on a group of vicious demons attacking peaceful towns. so he opens an inn a cover for his dangerous and secretive work. The chemistry between Garnet and Aden is instant and sweet. Both have secrets and both feel they are not good enough for the other. I loved the storyline in this very enchanting romance. There is a great blend of romance, action and fantasy. A fantastic tale all around! ~Booklover Sue
