Kiss of a Demon King  (Immortals After Dark #7) by Kresley Cole
This is an adult paranormal romance/erotica novel (Rated NC-17)

(Two and a Half Hearts)

Book Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes this spellbinding story of a demon king trapped by an enchantress for her wanton purposes -- and the scorching aftermath that follows when he turns the tables and claims her as his captive.

Sabine, Sorceress of Illusions: the evil beauty who surrenders her body, but not her heart.

Rydstrom Woede: the ruthless warrior who vows to keep her at all costs.

With each smoldering encounter, their shared hunger only increases. If they can defeat the sinister enemy that stands between them, will Sabine make the ultimate sacrifice for her demon? Or will the proud king lay down his crown and arms to save his sorceress?

My Review

I really love this series and was looking forward to Rydstrom’s book. For such a regal man, I envisioned a great story. Instead, I got something that crossed even my morals.

So, I don’t agree with rape whether it’s done to a girl or a guy. And that’s what this book feels like to me. I had a DNF with Larrisa Ione’s Lethal Rider (although the rape occurs in previous book towards the end if I remember correctly ). I somehow trudged through this one only because Rydstrom was told exactly what was going to happen to him and why. Therefore, I felt somewhat better. Where as in the other book, almost same scenario he begged her to stop she didn’t. I couldn’t read more for him to fall in love with her later.

That takes me to my moral dilemma with this book and the other. How can a guy fall in love with a woman after being violated? What are we telling women today? If you are raped, hope that you will fall in love with the culprit because his greater purpose was for you to have his child. REALLY?
I don’t get how women could write this. Obviously, these women have never been violated before otherwise they wouldn’t write such stupid stuff.
Still, after the horrible first half, I love that Rystrom turned the tables on her which somehow made it better. Still, I can’t give this book anymore stars. It’s just wrong on too many levels.
Audio Review
Robert Petkoff continues to do a bang up job. I love his narration.
