ARC Review - Tainted Kiss (Watcher's Kiss, Book ) by Sharon Kay

Tainted Kiss
Watcher's Kiss, Book 1
by Sharon Kay
Releases: July 21, 2015


Tactical, lethal, resolute.

Haunted by a centuries-old tragedy, there’s no room in Arawn’s life for softness. Every action he takes is for the betterment of his race and the good of the realm. He leads his elite band of warriors the same way he lives his life: full on, without compromise, determined. Except for one sexy female who happens to be his subordinate.

Tenacious, passionate, tough-as-steel.

Ria relishes the duties Arawn assigns her as much as she respects the deadly combatants on her team. And she has a secret: her formidable boss is also her deepest fantasy. Years of working under his authority haven’t dulled the spark she feels, yet her passion is tempered by the hints of loss she gathers about him. His dark and sexy moodiness draws her, but he’s a hard man to approach as he keeps the world at emotional arm’s length.

Secrets laced in blood burn his battle-hardened soul.

When Ria is gravely injured in the line of duty, Arawn can no longer fight his own long-simmering feelings. But a secret, more heinous and ugly than anyone could imagine, prevents him from surrendering his heart. Despite his intentions, he and Ria forge a connection both fiery and unexpectedly tender. Yet every day brings them closer to shocking facts. Evil stirs in his blood, and hiding the truth from her will be the ultimate betrayal.

My Review:

Another fantastic book by Sharon Kay!  Arawn leads his warriors and has no time for anything else, especially Ria, but finds himself passionately attracted to her.  Arawn has a secret that he fears will destroy any relationship with Ria so he has kept her at arms length.  Ria is a warrior who is secretly drawn to her powerful and overworked Alpha boss.  When she almost dies from an injury, they are unable to fight their mutual attraction anymore.  Ria and Arawn have to decide if they are willing to take a chance on each other to develop a deeper relationship or let fear keep them apart.

This well written story has a blend of action, romance, humor and fantasy that left me eagerly turning the pages.   I highly recommend this book to romance readers who enjoy books with fantastic storylines and wonderful characters (most of which are featured in the Solsti Prophecy series)!  This book earns a well deserved 5 star rating! ~Booklover Sue
