Overview

His duty...her pleasure.

…and the Beast, Book 2

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.

    Fabulous Read

    This is another short but hot original fairy tale from the talented Moira Rogers.

    As the last female of her family, Kisri is determined to reach her cousin, Malrion, High Lord of the Plains, to seek his protection, before any of the ambitious males can mate her against her will. Not only is she the last royal and single female, she is rich and attractive. She is also determined to find the one male who would gain nothing from mating with her: someone who wants her for herself.

    Using magic to create a glamour, she disguises herself as a male, and travels with the troops heading home under the lead of the First Warlord, Ennon. When she is discovered in the camp, Ennon sends word to Malrion, and is told to bring her directly to Malrion, protecting her from harm. Kisri discovers in Ennon a man worthy of respect, and more important, a virile and desirable man, one with no need of what she has.

    As they travel together, Kisri is determined to lose her innocence, and sets out to seduce Ennon. Can Kisri convince Ennon to teach her to be a woman, and please her lioness as well as her woman? Can Ennon keep his heart from becoming involved with the tempting female traveling with him? When he succumbs to Kisri's charms, will Ennon survive Malrion's judgment?

    I love the world Ms. Rogers has created, and the characters are a delight to watch. This is definitely something to read when you want a quick and hot shot of romance.

    Kisri is determined to find her own mate. She is smart and strong, and willing to take matters into her own hands concerning her future. I enjoyed watching as she slowly worked her way under Ennon's skin, and into first his bed and then into his heart. She is brave and crafty, as well, and well able to take care of herself.

    Ennon is the strong and courageous First Warlord of the Plains, a man that commands his troops with both intelligence and honor. He is determined to resist temptation as far as Kisri is concerned, but underestimates her determination where he is concerned. But he makes a serious mistake, and has to face the consequences of his action when they reach the camp of the High Lord, Malrion. I love Ennon, with his sense of honor and his willingness to take the punishment he knows he deserves.

    This is a marvelous story of romance, seduction and happy endings. The passion that Ennon and Kisri share along their journey is at first sweet, and then hot and passionate as they near their destination.

    I love Ms. Rogers' new fairy tales, and wonder what is next in store for all of the readers who never really grew out of fairy tales. I am one of those folks, and I hope to see many more in this line from Ms. Rogers. So these two get their happy ever after? Read Kisri and the Beast for your answer.

    I enjoyed book 2 of the …and the Beast series and am torn if I’m happy
    the series is discontinued or not. I found book one cumbersome and
    haven’t yet gone back to finish it. This one gives a brief synopsis of
    the series itself before going on with this short story, which I had no
    problems delving right into. Kisri the untamable is the High Lords
    favorite cousin and though desired by many is also the unattainable as
    she has no intention of being bound to one of her many greedy suitors.
    So what’s a girl to do – I know go to war under an illusion char that
    ill convinces everyone she is a man while she searches for her one male
    relative that can help her. I wonder if anyone ever told them
    were-lion play would make Kisri & Ennon fall for each other.

    I wanted more! But in a good way.

    "Kisri" is the second novella in the series .and the Beast. While novella #1, "Sabine" is a wonderful read, I feel it is not necessary to read it to delve right into novella #2. Moira has done a great job of connecting the two stories, but they can still be read alone. Now that I said that, don't miss out on reading "Sabine". Kisri is the last of the royal females in her family. Well sought after and desired. She wants more though. She wants to be chosen for herself not her position or money. Ennon is the First Warlord of the Plains. He is a strong man with money and position. He has worked hard for his High Lord and is very devoted to him and his people. Kisri runs away from being forced into a mating she does not desire. Doing so has thrown her into Ennon's path. He is now charged to return her to her cousin, Malrion the High Lord of the Plains. Kisri is determined to free herself from her obligations and claim her own life and love. Ennon is a man with a mission. Return his High Lord's cousin safe and sound. Both discover that they will get more than they bargained for. I loved and hated "Kisri". I'll start with the hate so you don't get me wrong. I hated that it was short and I loved the characters so much that I wanted more development of them. I went into this story knowing it was a novella. They are supposed to be short and sweet (oh and hot too). When I was done, I just wanted more, much more. I loved the story even do to its brevity. It had all that was needed to be fulfilling yet make you want more. The interaction between Kisri and Ennon was great. You felt their frustrations and their passion. I found myself smiling and sighing. "Kisri" is a very enjoyable novella. A wonderful short read. I hope you pick up both "Sabine" and "Kisri". They complement the storyline very well. Here's hoping there are more stories to come.
