Synopsis (Goodreads):
The Kraken King has declared that Zenobia Fox is under his protection—and with her identity revealed, she needs that protection more than ever. But it comes with a price when Ariq demands that Zenobia reveal her secrets in return.

Ariq wants nothing more than for Zenobia to trust him, and he knows exactly which sensual tricks will breach her defenses. But although she urgently desires the powerful governor, Zenobia isn’t a woman who will be easily won with a few passionate kisses.

When his ambush goes awry, Ariq discovers just how deeply he can hurt her—but the real danger to Zenobia is one that he never expected…
Thoughts on The Kraken King and the Inevitable Abduction: Holy crumb. Ariq and Zenobia just can't catch a break. Just when you think they're going to be able to break down those walls and finally get together, something happens. But that something leads to something unexpected, so... yeah.

I really love the look we get at how much Ariq's admires Zenobia. She's not like most women and it's those very differences that draw him to her. And the glimpses we get of her insecurities and the pain she's hiding from her past absolutely slayed me. At one point, Zenobia likens Ariq to his namesake, the Kraken. She thinks to herself that, like the Kraken, there's more to him beneath the surface than anybody can see. The same goes for her.

And that's what makes them so fascinating.

Danger is afoot and sparks are flying. On the plus side, many of those pesky secrets floating around are coming to light. It's getting tense and I can't wait to see what happens next!
