THE AVON AFFAIR IS A 14-DAY AVON BOOKS REVIEW EVENT
ORGANIZED AND HOSTED BY CURRENT AND ALUMNI MEMBERS OF
THE AVON ADDICTS.
Trust the always original, wonderfully fun Sandra Hill to do the wildly unexpected! With Kiss of Pride, the New York Times bestselling author—best known for her steamy and hilarious romance novels featuring lusty Viking heroes and heroines—turns the paranormal romance genre upside-down…with the first in a seductive new series that features Viking vampire angels! A refreshingly unique, utterly satisfying love story that puts the “super” in supernatural, Kiss of Pride tells the tantalizing tale of a lady reporter who falls under the sway of a sexy Norse vampire on a thousand-year mission who might be an angel too good to be true…or too devilishly bad to resist!
A delightfully quick read. Thoroughly enjoyed Kiss of Pride.
Ms Hill hit a great note with this novel. Kiss of Pride is a romantic paranormal treat that will keep your attention and provide a few chuckles along the way. From the way this novel is written, I imagine there will be one story for each of the seven Viking brothers. Each brother suffers from one of the Seven Deadly sins. That’s a lot of sinning in one family but it works. Archangel Michael is in charge of the brothers and their fight against Lucifer’s “lucipires”. The “vangels” are the good guys.
The vampires in Kiss of Pride do not drink the blood to survive but there’s a twist to the blood drinking ritual. The fact that Ms Hill caught my attention with the twists and turns on the vampire in Kiss of Pride is great. Vampires can be done to death but this one was refreshing and funny.
There was not an in depth world building or story line, however, the way it’s written works for me. Depending on what you expect, you will either like or not finish Kiss of Pride. I was looking for a quick lite read. That’s exactly what I took away from it. The pacing is slow but the editing/writing is good. Not sure if I could read seven books written this way. I am going to read the next in the series, Kiss of Surrender to see what develops.
My Rating: 3.75
