Review: Kisri (...and the Beast #2) by Moira Rogers

Release date: June 21, 2011
Synopsis (Goodreads):
After three years at war, Ennon bears the burden of seeing the High Lord's vast armies home. Keeping thousands of fiercely independent lions in line isn't easy. When his soldiers discover a beautiful, royal female hidden beneath an illusion spell, the lure of her inheritance threatens the order of his camp.

The men of her family protected Kisri, until the war stole them away. Tired of defending herself from greedy suitors, she's in search of her only remaining male relative. Instead she finds Ennon, her cousin's most dangerous warrior. Perhaps the only man in the kingdom who has no interest in claiming her birthright. Which makes him unique...and tempting.

Delivering Kisri to his High Lord's side--while keeping his distance--is Ennon's one and only duty. Yet Kisri's untutored advances crack his formidable resistance. And she proves to be a dangerously adept student. Especially when their passion wakes a magic beyond their control...

Warning: This story contains a dangerous shapeshifter warlord, a lioness with a sword, innocent passion, sexual awakenings and a happily-ever-after worthy of any fairy tale.
My Thoughts:  Although this book didn't have quite the same emotional impact as Sabine, I was more than thrilled with Kisri's story.  Kisri is strong and sweetly innocent about the ways of men but she longs to be able to make the choice as to who she gives herself to.  She wants someone strong enough to challenge her and win.  Someone who won't be intimidated by her cousin's title or driven by greed to possess her.

Kisri and Ennon's relationship is intriguing.  He's fiercely attracted to her yet he doesn't want to betray his High Lord's trust.  She's finally found someone who she knows has the ability to take her, yet she's unsure of her own allure.  Their agreement (for lack of a better word) to enter into a purely sexual relationship is sexy and sweet.  The more Kisri learns under his tutelage, the more she realizes that Ennon is one of the few men who will ever accept her without trying to break her spirit.

Wonderfully written and sweet without ever dipping into sappy, Kisri's story is one that will leave you with a smile on your face.  This is one happily-ever-after you won't want to miss.
