Kiss of Pride
Sandra Hill

Reviewed by Kathyrn Little
Posted June 23, 2012

Romance Historical | Romance Paranormal

Fans of Sandra Hill will not be disappointed as in the main character of Vikar Hill creates a tough-as-nails character with charisma and a shocking dose of innocence. Vikar knows what he wants and what he wants is Alexandra...even if he can't quite have her fully. Alexandra just thinks Vikar has lost his mind.

The antics that Vikar and Alexandra experience will make you laugh out loud. Vikar's Viking crudity is funny and Alexandra seems to appreciate it, but you may have wished for a sweeter relationship.

In some ways, Vikar seems a bit innocent, but that innocence clashes with his crude humor. Alexandra's past will interest you as, she is a sympathetic character, but her sassy, lewd character may make you think twice about her.

The secondary characters were funny with some who reappear from other Hill books and some new characters are introduced and they will continue to figure into the Deadly Angel series.

I felt the plot was good, the love scenes were hot, Hill set the bar high with KISS OF PRIDE.

SUMMARY

SOME MEN ARE TOO BAD TO BE TRUE...

Is he really a Viking with a vampire's bit? An angel with the body of a thunder god? A lone wolf with love on his mind? Alexandra Kelly, his prey, thinks Vikar Sigurdsson is either flat-out crazy or he’s trying to maneuver her into his bed—which is hardly where a professional reporter should conduct an interview, tempting as that prospect might be.

SOME MEN ARE TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE...

Until Vikar does something a teensy bit unexpected, and Alex begins to wonder whether her mystery man could really be everything he says he is: a Viking Vampire Angel on a thousand-year-long mission with his pack of sinful brothers—and a man who's finally found the woman of his dreams. By then, Vikar is already wrapping his chiseled arms around Alex’s body...and sinking his wicked fangs right into her neck. If this is sin, why does it feel so good?
