Product Description

*can be read as a stand alone story*
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Sharon Kay novel to date! 24 January 2016
By Chattykat - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is number two in this series but can definitely be read as a stand alone. And, I have to say... out of all of Sharon Kay's books this one really struck a chord with me and stands out as my favorite book that she has written so far. It seems like this Indie author has found her stride and so with each book the writing just gets better and better. If you love PR mixed with great steam and you love a... "Don't mess with me because I'll kick your butt!" heroine, then this is a great author to follow. She is one of my favorites for creating awesome characters, engaging storylines and always finds a way to bring strong, independent females together with those alpha males that make your heart go "thump thump"... as well as your lady parts! :)
Scorpio and Tessa are a match that you would think would be impossible to bring together, but strangely they are both cut from the same cloth and have the same priorities which are basically... I will do anything to keep those I love from coming to harm. Because they had similar values, it helped them to come together in a way that made sense.
Scorpio has a past that haunts him in the worst way. Tessa is unfortunately that one individual he meets in which his past collides very abruptly with the present. He must correct an act he was forced to commit decades earlier which caused a chain reaction of deadly consequences for an entire village. Tessa is his mate, but she hates him and that is a problem that is not easily resolved. He has to find a way to make her see him not as the mercenary he was forced to be in the past, but for the man he is now.
I love stories that revolve around magic and I think that is why I really enjoyed this installment. I loved Tessa and her ability to manipulate metal. I loved the conflict between her coven and the coven that they are fighting against who seem to be touched by dark magic. I loved the values that her coven held too and their determination to not give into hate but instead see the value of not succumbing to acts that would align with those touched by dark magic.
This is a very creative story, with really interesting and well developed characters. And, if you've read all of Sharon Kay's books you will get to see a few characters that you've met in prior books pop in for a visit. The writing in this one is stellar! It's easy to see that this author put a lot of heart into the emotions and feelings of these characters. It helped me to become more invested in their story.
So, another entertaining and enjoyable read by the lovely Sharon Kay. Looking forward to more from her for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go ahead and get this book! You'll love it! 15 January 2016
By Liz F - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Review copy courtesy of the author.

I think I've read just about all of the full length novels that this author has published. It all started back in 2013 with the first book in the Solsti Prophecy series. I fell in love with the world and the characters and I haven't looked back since. There's no need to read any of the other books before starting this one though. Feel free to jump on in!

I really liked Tessa, the heroine. She was strong and selfless and it was fun to read her. But she also felt real because she wasn't perfect. She had her weaknesses and fears that she had to deal with. I guess she was just a really well rounded character and to be honest, that's exactly what I've come to expect from this author. I liked that Tessa was such a good friend but I hated how long it took her to come around to the people in her life that weren't being totally honest. I can't fault her for not seeing what became obvious to the reader though. Tessa was kept in the dark, while I was able to see what everyone else was doing and thinking!

Scorpio... oh he sounded so hot! I pictured him like The Rock but with lighter hair. I loved how Scorpio was totally honest about who and what he was. He used to be an assassin but he's not a bad guy because he was sort of forced into it. He certainly isn't proud of what he's had to do but he's accepted it and is trying to make a better life by helping people as part of the cadre of Watchers (elite teams of warriors who help keep balance in the worlds). I thought it was pretty cool that Scorpio had this really awful and violent past but that he was also capable of lots of sweetness.

The Sexy Time, like all Sharon Kay novels, was plenty hot and steamy. But I liked the relationship between Tessa and Scorpio even more. I hope it doesn't sound too mean that I thought it was fun that Tessa HATED Scorpio when she first meets him. It made the progression from hate to something way better than hate that much more interesting to read. And Scorpio, for all that he was a huge, badass warrior, managed to take his time and not scare her off!

This was another excellent installment in this world that Sharon Kay has built. This is the second book in the Watcher's Kiss series but it can be read all on it's own. I really enjoyed the complex relationship between Tessa and Scorpio. It was certainly intense but it didn't feel like there was any unnecessary drama. This is definitely a paranormal romance and readers who like witches and alternate universes will definitely enjoy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great romance and a great story 13 January 2016
By Mary Kirkland - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Scorpio spent years as a mercenary slave to a really bad guy but he only did it to keep his family safe. One of the many people he was sent to kill ended up being a powerful Mage that had kept his village safe from others who wanted the village and powerful land for their own. With their Mage protector gone, the coven of witches had to move, their land was taken over and they had spend many years on hard times and they blamed Scorpio because he had killed the Mage who had been protecting them. Now Scorpio is a Lash Watcher and uses his many skills to help the Lash Demons on their missions, he has changed but that means nothing to the village of witches that he somehow finds himself a prisoner in when a mission goes wrong.

Tessa is a powerful witch who is good with metals. She along with the other people in the village want Scorpio to be punished for what he did. She has agreed to forge an alliance with a rival coven by marrying the chief even though he's the one who took their land. But everything changes when Scorpio meets Tessa for the first time and realizes that she is his mate. Even though she wants nothing to do with him, she can't help but feel a strange pull in his direction whether she wants to or not.

There were a few surprises along the way in this story, one of the biggest twists was the fact that there's a spy playing both sides and leaking information to the enemy. But things always have a way of working themselves out and I really enjoyed every aspect of this story.

This author is able to write stories that have bloody fight scenes, sad background stories of parents being murdered and children under the constant threat of violence but somehow is able to make me laugh in the middle of the story because the characters are so likable and you want the romance to work out.

The secondary characters are all very memorable and likable and I hope to see more of them in future books. The author created an interesting world and set of characters that are likable, sexy and fierce.

Originally published on I Smell Sheep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Characters and an Enchanting Romantic Tale! 13 January 2016
By Moonrise Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
From the first page, I was hooked! Engaging and original, another page turner from the author, who continues to surprise me with exciting adventures through enchanting worlds. But the biggest draw for me is always the characters, and as I've come to expect from the author, these characters are spellbinding, flawed, and lovable. Mix in some steamy, well written romance, and you have the start of another five star paranormal romance that will keep you up reading, late into the night!

Scorpio's life as an assassin, under the orders of a deadly and cruel leader, have led him through gut wrenching and challenging choices. But he had reasons for doing the things he did, others to protect, and a hardened exterior. So when the Winter Witch casts a spell on him he brushes it off. After all, he doesn't see himself as ever wanting a true mate, not with the life he leads. But years have passed, and now he finds himself face to face with Tessa... his other half. He knows she is the one. And as the full impact of an old curse is realized, he must come to terms with the damage he has done along the way... the lives he has impacted. And now, what his actions may mean for his own future. But can true love find a way?

Such a fantastic tale! I love the characters in this book, and the way their lives and stories intersect with the author's first series, The Solsti Prophecy. But you don't have to read the other series to jump right in and enjoy this enchanting tale!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Lash Demons :) 14 January 2016
By Crazy, Chaotic Book Babes - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Scorpio and Tessa were a mixed match but it worked. It was strange to see a Lash Demon held captive for so long but he knew exactly what he was doing and what he needed to do to get out of that cage and straight into Tessa's heart!

Tessa was dealt a hard deal and she has been living one since her mother passed away from an attack. She depended on her father and her village to raise her and make her who she became...she was the truly with her family but things also take a turn for the worse when the land that had for years were taken over and Scorpio did something to help with that! Tessa has now become the women that will take care of everyone, even if it means she is losing herself.

This story kept me on my toes and the most unexpected thing happened which floored me but it had to happen the way it did! Tessa really became her own but she was also hurt in the worst way possible. I loved this story and the Lash Demons are my favorite so I can't wait to see what Sharon takes this series!!
