[Review] - Poisoned Kisses
Author: Stephanie Draven
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 1, 2010
Summary: Daughter of the war god Ares, Kyra had been born into darkness—a darkness she'd vowed to annihilate. Just as she'd destroy the notorious Greek arms dealer Marco Kaisaris for feeding the blood lust she despised. She'd use her nymph's carnal powers to seduce him, then slay him. But Kyra wasn't prepared for Marco's secret weapon.
For millennia Kyra had avoided mortal men, but she couldn't resist Marco's magnetism, his raw sexuality. Time and again his sculpted body took her to heights to which only the gods soared. That he was a shape-shifting hydra she could forgive, but not his one fatal flaw—his poisoned blood could kill her. Kyra had fallen for the only being who could destroy her…. Yet how could she spend eternity without him?
Thoughts: Kyra is a nymph and the daughter of the god of war, Ares. She has mad it her mission to take down the hydra called Marco Kaisaris. Prideful as she is-- she believes this will an easy kill. She never excepted to fall in love, never taking into account that Marco might be to hard to resist.
Poisoned Kisses was a good read. I was actually surprised how much I liked it. The last few Nocturne books haven't been all that great for me, so I was a bit hesitant about this one, but it turned out a very interesting story. I loved the mixture of the modern world and Greek mythology. Kyra and Marco start off as enemies in the beginning and by the end then are much more. Kyra is determined to kill Marco, but when they first meet she slides into his lap -- that one delicious moment you just know that she is a goner. Ms. Draven has created a tantalizing story of seduction and adventure.
Score: 4 Stars
