Copy for review provided by the author in anticipation of an honest review

50 words or less: As second in command to the ruler of the lion shifters, Ennon is trying to disband a huge army after three years of war.  When his ruler's cousin, Kisri, shows up in disguise in his camp, Ennon knows that getting her back to her cousin is his top priority.  Well, it won't his top priority for long, if Kisri has anything to say about it.

After reading and loving Sabine I was super excited to have Kisri on tap to enjoy.  This is a good thing, because the And the Beast stories are rapidly becoming some of my favorites.  Kisri was released today, and at $2.80 on Amazon it's a super sweet deal.

This story employs some of my favorite story elements that don't show up often in paranormal romance, specifically, the "she's his sister/cousin/female relative and therefore off limits, but I'm still attracted" element.  Ennon tries his darndest to be noble and to maintain his honorable intentions towards Kisri, but she is just not having any of it.  Kisri is aware enough of her position and her "value" to other nobles as a way to gain an alliance with the royal house that she makes her own decisions about what will please her in her life without guilt or shame, and I enjoyed that.

Ennon falls fast for Kisri too, and even though it means that he'll have to slink away like a thief in the night, he's determined to do what he thinks is right.  Mal, Kisri's cousin, is pissed when he finds out how far things went between Ennon and Kisri, but only because he's worried that someone will get a terminal attack of the noble and do something that everyone will regret.

Do yourself a favor and grab Kisri and Sabine together.  Short, spicy and with happily ever afters that are worthy of any fairy tale, you can't go wrong here.

Overall Grade: A
