Kiss of Vengeance by S Young
A standalone adult paranormal romance from New York Times Bestselling author Samantha Young writing as S. Young.
Fionn Mór was once a high king of Ireland; a fierce warrior who led his tribes against the invading fae. It was a war he couldn’t win and to save his family he turned consort for the Fae Queen. Fionn escaped as the thing he once despised, and the people he loved betrayed him for it. Now, centuries later, it’s time to reopen the gates to Faerie to take his revenge against the Faerie Queen.
At sixteen Rose Kelly discovered family secrets that changed her forever. Years after, she’s still lost, traveling across Europe in search of that elusive missing ‘something’. When she’s attacked by a vampire, not only is she wrenched into a supernatural underworld she never knew existed, a knock on the head releases a spell on her mind and unlocks powers beyond her wildest imaginings. And with them more questions. Questions Fionn Mór claims to have answers to.
Following the powerful and enigmatic Fionn to Ireland, Rose quickly realizes she’s a pawn in his plan for vengeance. What begins as a passionate battle of wills leads to an inexplicable but undeniable connection. One that will force them to face an impossible choice between the deepest love… and the darkest revenge.
Abby’s review 4 stars
A paranormal from Samantha Young, writing as S. Young, sign me up! I love a good paranormal. I have been reading more paranormal than contemporary lately. I just love how in paranormal the author has so much freedom, any unexpected can happen and it certainly does in Kiss of Vengeance.
I loved the chemistry and the way the relationship was developed between Fionn and Rose. I loved the way my heartstrings pulled knowing that Fionn had ulterior motives. I loved that I felt the character’s emotional turmoil and I had a burn in the back of my throat, feeling Rose’s pain.
The history in this story is often complex and I found myself getting a little lost as a reader, but sometimes my attention stinks. I have 4 kids, so you get it, right?
This is the second book in this stand-alone True Immortality series. I really enjoyed the first book War of Hearts as well.
S. Young is the pen name for New York Times Bestselling Author Samantha Young. Her debut adult paranormal romance War of Hearts (A True Immortality Novel) will be published October 2019.
