Published: September 13, 2016

As part of the Watchers, Rhys is used to all types of combat, pursuit, and interrogation. But hacking and tracking through hidden online channels is where he excels. Shattering codes and sneaking around firewalls comes as easily to him as a swordfight or street brawl with a predatory enemy.
Cooking up sweet new pastry creations is Enza’s dream job. Kitchen appliances never fail her, unlike every computer she’s ever touched. Her fledging baking business is doing well, yet as streetlights flicker with her changing mood, she can’t shake the feeling that she’s different from everyone else. But life as a regular Chicago girl is all she’s ever known…until one hot summer night.
Violence threatens both of them when her world collides with Rhys’s in a dark city alley. As a raw and formidable ability awakens in her mind, she becomes targeted by the last person she expects. Drawn to his sweet baker with a pull he can’t deny, Rhys vows to protect her—no matter the consequences that will change their lives forever.


    Sharon Kay is definitely one of my favorite PR authors!  I've read all of her books and I haven't found one yet that I haven't loved.  She never disappoints with her strong kick-butt heroines.  I always tend to love storylines that revolve around food.  I don't know why...  it's just my thing.  So, the fact that the heroine is a pastry baker really resonated with me.  Loved it! 
    Enza, our heroine and pastry baker, stumbles through a portal and finds herself in an unknown world.  Rhys, a lash demon and watcher, is immediately drawn to her and feels compelled to protect her.  What follows is an action-packed storyline with lots of steamy moments to make you smile. 
    Rhys and Enza made a wonderful match.  I love heroes who are a healthy balance of alpha male but also have a soft side.  My favorite kind of hero! 
    So, another excellent addition to this series.  It can be read as a stand alone but I would happily recommend each book in the series.  They have all been great reads and perfect for any fan of paranormal romance. 

    5 sparkly stars!

    Many thanks to the author for the advanced copy!

Awakening Kiss Excerpt © Sharon Kay 2016

After  a few minutes, they reached a split that made two branches. “It’s up ahead on  the left,” Rhys murmured, and pulled her to the right hand tunnel.
  “Then  why are we—”
  He  extinguished his fire and crowded her against the cool concrete wall. “Remember  what I said about scents?”
  Enza’s  breath hitched and her heartrate sped up. “Yes,” she whispered, breathy.  “Touch?”
  He  leaned down to nuzzle her neck, and in the complete blackness her pulse beat a  wild rhythm clear to his eyes. His hands moved to her hips. “Yes, bella. We walk in there, it needs to be  crystal clear that we’re together, or the attention won’t stop.”
  “Attention?”  She laid her hands on his chest like she had before.
  “Touches,  kisses, getting too close. Arms around us, invitations for sex…hell, you’ll  probably see it happening to others in there.” He inhaled her sweet scent,  wishing their best lead on information didn’t lead them into a group of  sex-seeking creatures. “But no one touches you or they’ll be sorry.” Slowly, he  skimmed one hand up her side, to the bare skin of her bicep.
  She  shivered, and a trail of goosebumps stood out on her arm. He repeated the  process on her other side, and a tiny moan escaped her lips. He framed her face  in his hands, caressing her cheeks with his thumbs. For tonight, she was his.  Maybe they were just playing roles, but damn if it was the most natural thing  he’d ever had to play at.
  And  maybe that thought should have made him pause, but any hesitation was derailed  by a new, intense, protective desire to show those wolves she was off limits.
  “Mmm.”  She closed her eyes and leaned forward, curling her fingers into his T-shirt.
  “I  want your neck, baby.” He stroked one finger down from her ear to her throat,  eliciting another shiver from her.
  Her  head dropped to the side, giving him full access to her dewy, tantalizing skin.  He brushed his lips across her collarbone and sucked at the spot where her  shoulder started, inhaling her scent like it was oxygen.
  Her  arms went up and linked behind his neck. She wiggled close, rubbing her body  against him. He groaned at her soft curves, remembering exactly how firm she  felt in his hands. Blood surged to his cock and he dotted kisses along her  throat, lingering below her ear. A spot he already knew she liked.
  She  whimpered and raked her fingernails through his hair. Tingles shot from her  nails to his dick, making him flex into her. He switched to the other side of  her jawline, kissing and nibbling along her skin, ensuring anyone who dared get  that close would smell him on her.
  “Rhys…”  she moaned, lifting her head and scratching him again.
  Without  hesitation he slid a hand into her hair and gripped. Then forcing slowness, if  only not to maul her, he held her still while he lowered his mouth to hers.
