Assassin's Kiss by Sharon Kay!!

Title: Assassin's Kiss

Series: Watcher's Kiss #2

Author: Sharon Kay

Genre: Adult, PNR Romance

Published: January 12, 2016
Locking emotions away is how Scorpio survived years as a conscripted killer. Now, as a Lash Watcher, he uses the same lethal skills to help his fellow warrior demons maintain peace in the realms. When a mission goes awry, he finds himself a thousand miles from home with no weapons or comms. Injured and alone, he is taken in by a group of witches who know him well.

And want him dead.

Tessa’s affinity with metal makes her one of the most powerful witches in her coven. Her deepest wish is to stop the oppression of her people—a direct result of her former leader’s murder. She agrees to marry the chief of a rival coven, knowing it won’t be a love match. But she abandoned the idea of a soul-deep bond long ago. Especially one with the rough, former mercenary warrior who shows up and claims she belongs to him.

Even from behind bars, the longer Scorpio stays, the more he unsettles Tessa and she questions all she thought she knew. Choosing him will put everyone she cares for at risk. He’s nothing like she expected, and the last thing she could dare to want.

My review 
I absolutely love this author and her fantastic writing!! She has made a spin off series surrounding her solsti sisters and this one is just as awesome! This is the second book of that series- though you could jump right on in. And now for the twist- the hunter becomes the hunted! 

Scorpio was a bad guys pawn- his trained killer and assassin. But when all is said and done- he doesn't think about the lives he affected when he killed for his siblings protection. But when an accident sends him through a portal right to his enemies doors, the tide turns. He killed a Mage before and now he is in the wake of the aftermath. And his actions cause devastating effects. The witches in the coven who were led by the killed Mage are in serious trouble. And one of those witches is Tessa. She is the new leaders daughter and her power has put her in a bad position. Marry the evil and save everyone else and be miserable. She doesn't realize how bad it will really be when she agrees to marry the lead of the coven who is terrorizing hers. But Scorpio shows up and is now willing to make amends by helping- because she's his mate. But not everyone wants his help, most him dead for revenge. 
I love how their romance played out. Him chasing her, her resisting. Him begging to help her, she allowing only because it helps her people. Until she learns not only the truth of Scorpio's previous actions but also gets to know him as a man. 
Goodness Ms Kay took me for a bender on this one. I kept thinking I knew what would come and then would get blindsided! I absolutely love the world she has created. And I can't help but love all those hawt demons!! I want one- badly!! I also can't wait to see who she is gunna pick for her next story! I'm hoping is Brenin- aka Thor's twin- dude came I please have him!!! He makes me giggle :) with that said- you really are missing out if you haven't read her books!! 5 SCORTCHING HAWT DEMON PAWS!!
