Book Review: Kiss of Wrath by Sandra Hill

KissOfWrath mm cSynopsis:

No wicked wenches or wild rampages…it’s been centuries since Mordr the Berserker was turned into a Vangel-a Viking Vampire Angel-as punishment for his sin of wrath, and he’s been frustrated ever since. It’s not so bad being stuck in modern-day Las Vegas. What better place to slay Lucipires, or demon vampires, than the original Sin City. But then Mordr Sigurdsson’s mission is expanded to a new assignment: protect lust-worthy Miranda Hart.

Miranda’s well- ordered life turned into chaos when she unexpectedly inherited her late cousin’s five children. Now, her cousin’s dangerous husband is about to be paroled, and she needs a miracle to keep them all safe.That miracle arrives on her doorstep in the form of a very buff, handsome man with a very strange name. Mordr wants nothing to do with a red-haired wench or children. Miranda wants nothing to do with gorgeous hunk who claims to be a Viking.

As Miranda and Mordr give in to temptation, they must decide if they fit in each other’s worlds-before their enemies close in on them.

My Review:

I once again, didn’t fully realise that this was a 4th book in a series, however fortunately it seems that you can read them out of order – phew! God bless authors who do that!

I’ve been reading quite a few paranormal romances of late and this one really did hit the spot, especially also having a bit of a genre mash-up with the historical. And hey, who wouldn’t want to read about a vampire viking angel?

From a writer’s perspective, this book kind of strayed from the normal romance path by adding in a kind Brady Bunch. Usually children come later, but this relationship has to bear them from the get go. It made it kind of more real that way – I know that sounds weird, but real life isn’t always sweet, sexy romance, marriage then kids – a lot of the time it happens all in a different order. The old-world language features here quite a bit in the start, but didn’t phase me as much as other books that include it – maybe it was done much smoother here, or maybe I’m now just used to it? Who knows, but it did add to the overall feel of the start of the book.

The front cover is a handsome man showing off his abs, so not much of a departure from other romance books, however the wings and fire add that paranormal aspect which really makes a difference.

Overall, I’d give Kiss of Wrath 5 out of 5 stars, you can’t do better if you want to slip out of this grey, boring world for a a bit and have an adventure with a vampire viking angel!
